Pedals/Dash, tight squeeze
 
Hey all, anyone else find it difficult to get your left foot between pedals on the 2012 JK 6spd? I keep catching my shoe/workboot on the plastic below the steering wheel and on the OBDII port. I thought of trimming the plastic and relocating the port but there is a pretty stout steel frame to contend with. Any ideas?

yeah i get that too. The overall design of the pedal box sucks. No dead pedal for the 6 spd and the trim is is too close. I actually change my shoes to drive to work because my work shoes get caught. Feel pretty feminine changing shoes in the parking lot. Lol

How big is your foot? :popcorn:

This is my one complaint so far about the Jeep. I cant imagine driving this with work boots, i can barely drive it with tennis shoes. :lol:

I'm sportin a size 12 foot, 6'2", 220#. This is my 5th Jeep (2 CJ's, 2 TJ's, and now the JK) to own and I've never seen such a cramped pedal area.

I have the same issue. With a size 15 shoe, I constantly am catching my one or another edge of my foot going between clutch and the other pedals. there just is not much room in there. Compounding the problem is a set of pedals that are not very high quality, are kind of slippery-when-wet, and frankly, do not belong in a $25K Jeep. In fact, I am considering switching-out the threesome for a new set of high-end pedals. Any suggestions would be welcome. I am looking at both Putco and Performance Pedals, although the latter do not have a set available for the 2013 Wrangler JK yet. In the meantime, I will have to just be careful when accelerating, shifting, and braking. In other words, everything.

Happens to me sometimes if I am wearing combat boots.
