Picture of 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...

Picture of 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

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

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?
rizingf3nix (author)  Ranie-K2 years ago
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?
rizingf3nix (author)  caitlinsdad2 years ago
That would definitely be sweet! I run with a bunch of folks who would be all over that, but unfortunately no. I'm kinda lazy with this one. :)
