I like them. Is there anything to keep it from swinging front and dinging up the paint on the door jam?

is that a motorcycle, or a jeep? not my cuppa tea, but it wouldn't do me much good anyway, since my left foot is busy with the "man peddle."

There is a rubber stop that keeps it from swinging.

I think hanging any part of yourself out of the Jeep while on the trail is nuts.

There's a gimpy fellow in the local club here who used to walk pretty normal until he thought he could stick his foot out to stop his Jeep from going over. He thinks another 3-4 months'll get his leg back up to snuff.

Yes, but the feeling of having the wind cool you nads while going down the road makes up for it. Did I say that out loud? :shaking:

That's just plain crazy right there. Everyone knows that you're supposed to use the stiff-arm technique.

Not a fan of those foot pegs, by the way.

I admit I put my foot on the lower hinge when driving around town or on the highway, but never on the trail. As much as I dislike the peg, I would probably use it occasionally.

Other than that, I think it teaches a bad habit.

You're absolutely right! What was he thinking? At this point he says the pain from the grief we've given him has now passed the pain of the actual injury.

I have a set of pegs for my jeep.. I love having my doors off and then being able to stretch my leg and have a place to rest it outside of the jeep just makes it all worth while...

I had set my leg on the door hinge once when my jk was stock, I was on the highway and my cousin following me he has a LJ, saw my foot fall off the hinge he said that my foot was centimeters from getting ripped off. So then from there we would look for something to hold our legs on the hinge... He found a website that was making and selling pegs for jeeps.. But for $50 a pair was too much.
About a month later we were at JeepFest 07 in New Castle Pa. A jeeper who was in the King of Jeeps competition actually made several pairs of pegs and planned to sell them while he was there. My cousin and I jumped at the chance and each bought a pair for $20..

I think that I have pics but I will have to search. I'll post them as soon as I find them...

My buddy makes them in his barn, you can e-mail him to see if he can whip up a set for you. His name is George, and you can e-mail him at Rockrash4x4@aol.com .

I just keep "flashing back" to the movie Easy Rider...although at $20- $25, I too would probably buy em... and I KNOW I would use em. I have a manual transmission btw, but once I'm on the hwy in 6th gear...I'd love to dangle my doo-dads in the breeze!

Pegs to let you hang your legs outside the Jeep??? Bad Idea, Dude.

Keep all parts inside the Jeep at all times.

Or you'll have to change your name to Eileen.

These are fabricated from bicycle pegs, hex head bolts, and parts from a plumbing pipe hanger. 3162

A little bump for the RockRash4x4 foot pegs.... I picked up a set yesterday and really like them.

There has been a lot of "keep your body parts in the jeep" posts and I agree and will keep them in the jeep when going over obstacles and such. Just like to get comfy when cruising. Plus the "cool your nads" feature is a bonus.

6th gear? wtf is 6th gear??..... wait... wait... I seem to remember something about a number 6 on my shifter...

37's and 4.10's. Oh how I miss 6th gear :bawling:

hell I only have 32" tires and I miss 6th gear, unless I'm going downhill with a tailwind. But i think a set of foot pegs is in order.

Those look awesome Ron, that military looking design has been around awhile for good reason, had some on my 06 Rubi. Reckon I'll have to build my own for the JK.

I love them!! I took the top/doors off last Sunday and dropped in the foot pegs and it sure is nice..... the doors might just get placed in storage for a while..

Dry as we've been that's not a bad idea.

I like the look of a few of these. When it's 100+ here there really is no better "AC" than a 65mph wind stream. I just rest my foot on the hinge but am starting to see some wear on it already. I however wouldnt suggest that if you wear short shorts. If you dare wear short shorts. . . . well women and children beware AND the occasional flying rock/bug might just cripple ya.

4.10's ouch man you should hit up some 5.13's or 5.38's Then you could be back to ball-cooling breeze speed in no time. Those look like the best things since fake boobs, well :thefinger: for cruising.

Yeah but, the rubicon hmm...for the same amount of money difference wise you can pick up an atlas transfer case and put that in...but you're pretty much screwed as far as the front axle upgrade and drive shaft costs...LOL However Dynatrac is coming out with a new Dana pro 44 front that is supposed to be about 30% stronger than the Rubi 44 front, I think somewhere around the end of April or beg of May. Cheers man:beer:

Woops wrong quote..that was for Armydadx.
