Jeep Heart and Harley Soul...





Introduction: Jeep Heart and Harley Soul...

So you like your jeep wrangler on the bright sunny days with the top and doors off, but you'd love to ride it feet forward like a Harley? Here's how I did it on mine. 

Note the ubiquitous disclaimer: You are responsible for how you use and interpret this information. This is simply a demo of how I accomplished something on my own vehicle. I'm not responsible for what you do with yours. 

That aside, here we go!

Step 1: The Materials...

For each side, you need the following:

* One Bicycle peg
* One 5/16-18 x 2" Grade 8 bolt.
* One 5/16 Grade 8 flat washer
* One 5/16 Grade 8 split washer

Step 2: Remove One of the Hinge Bolts...

Use an applicable torx bit and a ratchet to remove one of the hinge bolts. I removed the lower one, but I suppose you could do the same with the upper one.

Step 3: Put the Bolt Together...

Pretty much standard bolt configuration. Slide the split washer on the bolt, then slide the flat washer on.

Step 4: Bolt the Peg Onto the Side of the Jeep...

Use a ratchet, extension, and 5/16 socket to tighten the bolt down. When you are comfortable with how tight it is, your done.

Step 5: Future Steps...

Yeah, works good. But v2 will be better. My future steps with this will include:

1. An abrasive coating to keep my foot from slipping as bad. 
2. Weld the peg onto the hinge bracket, then bolt it back on. This will ensure that not only will the peg not come loose, but that it won't fall off from one bolt coming loose either. 
3. Weld a plate on the side of the peg to keep my foot from sliding off sideways. 

As you can see from the picture below, it doesn't extend much past the tires. 

It's pretty fun cruising down the highway with this. Enjoy!

    Cool, but I built my highway pegs to sit in the hinge so I could take them off when doors are on. They don't really get in the way leaving them on, but I worry I will somehow rip off the entire hinge

    i wish i can do this, but i need my left foot for the clutch... great idea tho

    My Jeep is a manual transmission as well. I put my left foot out there on the highway when I'm not shifting.

    Thanks for the guide man! After getting the pegs shipped and a couple trips to a bike shop and Home Depot I got mine done!

    Right on! Hope you enjoy yours as much as I am mine.

    Disregarding what would happen in a crash, keeping your left foot away from the pedals seems like a bad idea (and, physically speaking, probably not very comfortable).

    Eh -isn't that a danger to pedestrians? Is that legal where you live?

    The peg doesn't stick out nearly as much as the wheels do and sticks out just a little farther than the nerf bars underneath. Don't know that a pedestrian is going to get that close to the vehicle while it's moving.

    As far as legality, I didn't bother to check. I highly doubt there is anything nixing this. My experience is that as long as it's not messing with anyone else, I get left alone.

    You gonna rig up the clutch or shifter to the peg?
