Wow you talk a lot of smack for someone that does a lot for the site.

Perhaps you could calm the trash talk and put forth a well reasoned arguement.

My foot is no farther from my clutch or any worse then behind it on the floor.

All this flaming of the OP is undeserved and you of all people should know better.

As if you've never done something that another thought was dumb, careless or worse.

As for your personal attack on me, I'll put my knowledge base up against yours any day so please keep your uninformed personal attacks to yourself.

With 20 years building, setting up and driving racecars behind me, you can trust safety is my top priority but this was blown way out of proportion. We have guys on here riding around on 35's using stock brakes which is far more dangerous then where you rest your foot.

I still insist only hot chicks have any body part hanging out of the Jeep.

Yep, the thread is back to women again...

My foot is no farther from my clutch or any worse then behind it on the floor. Not true at all, you might want to rethink this. This is why you were responded to with slight harshness..

All this flaming of the OP is undeserved and you of all people should know better.The OP was not one time flamed for his thread. Only sugestions about the possible safety issue driving on the road with a foot out the door.

As if you've never done something that another thought was dumb, careless or worse. I know I have, although I also will not argue with untrue facts and tell others that what I am doing is safe when it is not. You argue that it is safe can you truly believe this?

As for your personal attack on me, I'll put my knowledge base up against yours any day so please keep your uninformed personal attacks to yourself.

With 20 years building, setting up and driving racecars behind me, you can trust safety is my top priority but this was blown way out of proportion. We have guys on here riding around on 35's using stock brakes which is far more dangerous then where you rest your foot. If you are driving your rig with 35" tires and stock brakes then you should be the last person to stick your foot out of your door. If you truly care about safety as you state back your words with action. Be truthful about the possible hazard. Sticking your foot out the door may be comfortable to some but definitely not safe.
You make a good argument that safety is not your priority. Please overlook that I am being a little harsh on you it is not my intention. Anticaman stated to you what myself and some other thought. Your facts are way off and he called you on it.

You guys do realize tires on Jeeps stick out just as far as the flares (more if its lifted with 12.50 width tires ) . It's his foot let it rest out of the jeep if he wants .

I still contend this was blown way out of proportion and many crying safety are guilty of far worse safety violations. ( ie. oversized tires with stock brakes, advising under skilled people on lift installs, etc)

As for me, I am confident in my safety record and can stand on my reputation as both a racer and builder. My work has been held up as a model of safety and even used as an example for rules changes.

Obviously we disagree here but I stand by my statements and my reputation.

Just read this whole thread.
I usually try and stay out of the interwebz flame wars, but I've been seeing a frustrating trend on JF of people getting all heated about "safety" issues.

I think this is a cool mod. I myself plant my foot on the door well (automagic here btw) or the hinge while driving doorless. It's comfortable. It's not about "looking cool" or whatever, it's just a comfy way to enjoy the doorless/topless ride.

When I was younger I was much, much less concerned about safety and security, but age, time, a few very close brushes with death/dismemberment, and having a child have tempered my reckless, testosterone fueled, c*ck measuring. That said, life is inherently dangerous, and while it's true that hanging your foot out of a moving vehicle leaves you slightly more vulnerable during a collision and/or accident, debating human reaction times, the distance to a pedal, the "ifs, ands, or buts" is pretty senseless.

How many of you have checked at text while driving? Changed a CD/radio station? Turned to scold kids in the back seat? Pounded down that truck stop hot dog? Drank your coffee while smoking your cig? I bet the answer is 100% of you have done at least one of these things one time. All of them are dangerous to do behind the wheel, and yet we all have a sense of confidence that we're not the bad drivers. It's everyone else.

Being an armchair safety director is not only pointless, it's based nearly on pure speculation. I worked as an EMT medic for about 3 years. During that time I saw a seat belt decapitate a teenage driver that was struck head on by a drunk. On a particularly deadly stretch of mountain highway I responded to a single car rollover. The driver had slid off the road in winder conditions, rolled once down a 15 foot embankment, and ended up upside down in a shallow river with about 4' of water. His seatbelt locked up during the roll and must have jammed. We found him drowned with his head submerged about 2' under the water. He sustained no other injuries. He simply couldn't get out of his seatbelt.

I've seen people killed when their head slammed side ways into the window. I've seen people eviscerated after their head shattered the side window and their body flopped out enough to catch their guts on the glass. I've seen people literally torn in half as they flair around the cab. Their butts firmly planted and belted in while their torso bangs around in opposite directions. I've seen decapitations after a head makes it though the windshield during a roll. I've seen amputations of every other body part. I've seen seat belts kill and I've seen them save lives. I've seen air bags kill and I've seen air bags save lives.

How many of you have loose tools in bags/boxs thrown somewhere in the cab? Groceries? Pets? I've seen all of those things thrown around during a crash and kill or maim the occupants.

One call I responded to; we rolled up to a single car rollover. Upon arriving on scene the first thing we saw was a small pick up maybe 25 yards off the road. It looked as if it had rolled a few times. The windshield had a large spiderweb crack on the drivers side with blood and hair stuck to it. We rush up to the male driver of mid 20s to find him firmly belted in with only minor cuts and dings. We quickly moved over to the female passenger. She had multiple lacerations, a compound fracture, and the back of her head was deformed. No pulse, no breathing. We extricated her and threw her on a bus to the hospital. Meanwhile we were able to extricate the driver. While doing so we found that his fly was down...All the pieces came together. She was pronounced DOA and he walked home that night after killing his GF....

So, before you all sit back and flame away, realize that most of you are just spewing regurgitated garbage out from behind your monitors. You think something "sounds" unsafe but I guarantee each and every one of you does much worse than that while driving every day without realizing it. There's no arguing that having any part of your body outside the vehicle is less safe than having it inside, but the degree is nearly negligible and only matters when the circumstances line up perfectly. If the reaper wants to find you he will.

Until then, stop strapping your kids into hockey gear just to play on the monkey bars. Give 'em a hammer and tell 'em to go build a tree house or a box car or something! I don't know when our society turned into such a bunch of pantie wastes but just give it a rest!

RANT OFF

Cheers
