I use Bootbars from GraBars. Bought off amazon from $60. Love those things.

I like the bootbars from grabars too. I like them because you can set your foot on them a couple of different ways and even stretch out and set your calf on it. To me this variety makes it more comfortable on longer trips.

I use Smittybilt XRC foot pegs and I really like them. They are just over $42 on Amazon

if someone can, please enlighten me (never taken doors off yet).

With the doors off, why do you want to stick a foot outside????

seems "odd"

It does seem odd but once you do it it is very natural and comfortable. You don't really *need* the footpegs either. The first time I drove a jk with the doors off I found resting my foot on the hinge to the most comfortable place. Even more so on a manual because there is not enough room next to the clutch for a dead pedal. With the doors off that problem is solved.

Cut out the floorboards and go bare feet like Fred Flintstone did in his wrangler.

KIKBAX are excellent. Tight fit, easy on and off, very comfortable. Mirror is nice and stable. Excellent!

I bought a Jeep just a short time ago and I have since learned, I will never have money again.. (Just Empty Every Pocket, right??)
so here is my simple solution for doors off pegs. 3" 14mm nut and bolt just a bit smaller diameter than the hinge hole, a few washers and a simple aluminum bracket. The beauty of this get up is that my foot sits directly centered and snug, so no slipping. Cheap Mod I know. Total Cost.... $0.00, all extra stuff laying around the garage.

Looks good, ever consider painting it to match your jeep.

Yes I was thinking about getting them done along with some D-rings to match as well.

Winner, winner, chicken dinner.

Install mirrors and foot pegs for doorless driving in under 1 minute. Rock solid, awesome product. I was using mine yesterday in fact

When I first took my doors off, it never occurred to me to get footpegs. Then, as I rode around more with the doors off, I found myself propping my left foot on the lower hinge. It is just nice to feel the wind as you are driving. After my foot slipping off of the hinge a few times, I started looking to see if they made footpegs and I had no idea there are so many options out there. Now, every time I take my doors off, it just feels natural to me to have one leg out on the footpeg.

I won't be installing these until Tuesday but is there a way you can secure them from being stolen?

thanks, one more stupid question though.

when i open the door, it gives me a "door open" alarm on the dash.

Does that ever go away with the doors off, or is there something you do that kills that or just ignore it.

well okay, one more stupid question

main reason I have not taken the doors off nor the top is I have absolutely zero leaks right now and am paranoid that once I start messing with this stuff it will start leaking.

being overly paranoid or ???

A. It will start leaking eventually...cuz Jeep

B. The doors don't register when they are unplugged.

C. Removing the doors, in my experience, is the least likely activity to start leaks. If they don't leak, then generally unless the foam gasket tape is messed up, they won't start. Removing the frames often can up the chance slightly of leaks, but just tighten (not too much) the handle bolts and keep an eye out how you place the frames back into their spaces. But (See A.)

better patent your invention before someone in china sees that and peddles it on Amazon calling it "xTreme Offroad Foot Rest" or some nonsense, and has all of the exterior Wrangler paint colors to match lmfao

My doors are off often throughout the years and I don't find it natural at all, but I understand that people like it.
