Foot get caught when clutching?

My wife and kids can't tolerate my 2 door 1978 FJ40 with all its rattles, shakes and smells, so we drive a 6 speed '13 JKU the other day. They all loved it (okay, so did I) but I noticed that when I was shifting my foot sort of got caught on the dash. It is as if the clutch pedal is too high or the dash goes down too low.

Anyone else feel this way?

In 70k I can't say I've ever had a complaint about it.

I guess if you had fairly long legs and the seat was up too far, I could see that kind of issue, but otherwise idk. I'm fine in mine... very used to the clutch feel and placement. Maybe lowering the seat height adj would've helped.

I personally didn't like how high the clutch was in my 2010 but I was never impeded clutching in or out.

I catch the door wiring harness once in a while, but not the dash.

I've done it a couple of times if my foot is too high up on the peddle.

I had this happen a couple times while wearing work boots instead of sneakers. It is definitely something you can adjust to.
