Part #: DP0709
So many times I have been offroad driving down a steep incline and just couldn't get enough leg length to push off the front floorboards. One time I found myself pushing on the brake pedal and was almost unable to get off of it to apply power to get out of a near roll over. Sometimes just having a place to rest your foot during a long drive is nice. My wifes honda has one and I find it really nice on long drives. Mountain Off Road Enterprises has made Dead Pedals for quite a few years. I picked one up for the JK's. This is a really stout piece of hardware. I was actually surprised at how much it weighed.
Soft Pad for the door.
|What you get. (1) Dead Pedal bracket, (2) 6mm screws, washers and lock washers.|
|1. Open the driverside door.|
|2. Disconnect the wiring harness for the door. The red tab pulls down and you press the small button just underneath it.|
|3. Remove the door limit strap from the hook. This is on fairly tight, so be patient working the loop up over the hook.|
4. Slowly swing the door open and put a pad between the mirror and the cowl. Otherwise you will have a nice dent in the side of your cowl.
|5. Remove the bolts that hold the limiting strap hook on with a 10mm socket.|
|6. Remvoe the two nuts holding the ground wires on to the side of the Jeep. Do not remove the ground wires.|
|My hook originally stayed on the side of the Jeep, I didn't feel a need to pull it off since it will be remaining in the original location, of course it fell off and hit me in the back of the wrist. I compared the screws that came witht the kit to the original bolts and saw that they were the same size, so I just reused the OEM bolts. Some of the older model Jeeps had shorter screws holding the hook on.|
|7. Install the Dead Pedal Bracket over the 2 ground wire studs and reinstall the nuts. Do Not Tighten these down. Make sure the ground wires are angled straight up. Reinstall the bolts through the Dead Pedal Bracket and limiting strap bracket into the body of the Jeep. Tighten up the bolts, and snug down the nuts. The nuts do not have a lot of thread to engage on so overtightening can cause them to strip.|
|8. Sit in the driver seat and check the pedal position for comfort. You may need to change to one of the other positions for the best fit. I haven't found any guide as to what fit who the best. Mine is set to the furthest forward position currently.|
|9. Reconnect the door retainer strap and electrical connector if you have power windows and mirrors. Don't forget to push the red tab back up.|
|Stand Back and admire your handywork.|

Common Sense and Safety should always be observed when working on your vehicle or doing modifications. Jackstands, wheel blocks, disconnecting the battery are a few of the basic safety precautions that should be used and may not be mentioned in the write ups on this site. You are responsible for your own installation, these write ups are a helpful guideline and should not be taken as an official installation instruction. My write up may be different from the kits currently out there, so alwasy double check the manufacturers installation instructions when installing anything. I try to keep the site up to date with changes that have occured as I discover them, but may not have the latest unless someone lets me know. If you feel that an install is above your capabilities after reading my write ups, I recommend getting together with a club and getting some help. Only a few times have I needed to employe some actual help from a shop to get something done. Usually welding or A/C work.
