If you right foot keeps slipping of the gas pedal due to all of the bumps etc. while off-roading do what I did.
Get the non skid stick on stuff that they make for boating & docks & cut a piece out & glue it/stick it on the pedal of your choice, it really helps w/all that's going on while your trying to get over the Grand Canyon :2thumup: Jim B. :sneak:

P.S. I had to, it was just there Jim.

I don't know how I must have missed this tip. :innocent:

Great idea! :innocent: The TJ seems to have the gas pedal kind of close to the right of the floor board allowing a bit of bracing in diaper changing situations. I'm going to have to make notice of this next time I'm out. I can see how this would help.

When I Canyon jump, as the vehicle leaves traction, I tuck my feet, & brace myself against the steering wheel until I feel the landing on the other side. Works quite well. :sneak:

i looked at a website not too long ago that had a write up on pedal slipping...

they screwed in 4 small bolts on each pedal to really prevent slipping



:cool:

You could bolt on some HP adding chrome pedal covers, really though I got a set of sparco pedals that are a mag-alu reallx aggressive narly grip and look like old drag design. but not many out now that qualify a### more than corny. You can find some covers that look strong and stable and prep em good spray em with primer throw on some sand coat them a little more and voila

My prob isn't with slipping off the pedal, but with bouncing on/off the pedal over the bumpy stuff (especially in reverse over ex girl friends who've put on a few pounds :cook: ) Some people here dig the side of their foot into the trans hump. I think the pedal is just too light (not enough return spring pressure). I never had this prob with my carborated YJ.

Change the spring if U can. Use your toes not the flat part of the foot.
