$8 foot pegs.

Ok so i was walking through the local tractor supply and i got to browsing the hardware section and i came up with a cheap diy idea.
Ok so the basic idea is a place to rest your foot while driving. I know that foot pegs have been around for a long time and there are mixed opinions on them but this is a cheap way of doing them.

What you will need is

3/8" i bolt (x2)

3/8" nut (x2)

1/2" x 5" bolt (x2)

1/2" washer (x2)

1/2" nut (x2)

My total cost was about $8


First take the 1/2" bolt and put it through the loop in the 3/8" i bolt


Then slide the 1/2" washer onto the bolt and tighten the nut down onto it tight.

Now just slide them into your door hinge and use the 3/8" nut to tighten them down so they dont move around and your done

There you go $8 foot pegs.

Im not responsible for anything that may go wrong in anyway and be aware of the risk involved when using foot pegs on your jeep

Just to add to this. Go get yourself a couple threaded rod couplers in that size and thread them over the footpeg. It will give it more surface area for your foot.

Nice. I had taken a square u-bolt and just cut one-side off, however the approach above would give for a longer peg.

also bike pegs come in 3/8th if im not mistaken, that should give you a little more surface area as well.

I thought about pegs. I may remake a set with them. But i would have to down size my bolt from 1/2 to 3/8

Cool Idea. A lot of jeepers hang their foot out.

i made a video to better illustrate the finished design of the pegs. and as you can see in the video i would not recommend painting the stainless hardware.

you can see it on my youtube channel here

I built a pair to go on mine. I just used about 9" of 3/8" solid round bar. Bent it and welded a bar to keep it in place. Work great.

Not the best pic but I used an old peg from a Harley that was given to me. Cut a piece of aluminum angle to go between peg and the body. Then some felt between the angle and the body and put a bolt through it.



Also made some for my cousins '7 pretty much the same but used a piece of square tubing to extend it closer to the bottom of the tub. Welded a nut on each end of the tubing. Bolted peg to one end and the other end to the door hinge.
