Installing a Dead Pedal on Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is surprisingly comfortable to drive.  Even my lifted Jeep rides smooth on the highway.  However, on long trips or when wheeling my left leg needs something to rest on.  I came across the Mountain Off Road Enterprises (M.O.R.E.) dead pedal part number DP0709 and I thought I'd give it a try.

The install is simple and there's no drilling required.  It connects to the door limit strap bracket and two ground wire studs that are on the left side just below the dash:


All you have to do is remove the two #15 torx screws from the door limit strap mount and the nuts off of the grounding studs.  Then install the dead pedal plate in the same locaiton.  The MORE pedal comes with longer nuts that replace the torx screws.  The new bolts are nice.  It makes it easier to reinstall everything since you only need a 10MM socket.  

Here's the before and after pics:



So far I love it.  The pedal is strong, stable and the perfect distance from the floor.
