DIY Jeep Pegs

Been searching online and wanted those Jeepegz but not interested in paying 100+ to get em here so heres what i came up with.

Went to the local Motorcycle shop and picked up these little guys

$30 bucks after military discount ha "MURICA

Went over to Ace, cause they're the helpful hardware place to get the other parts i needed.
3/8 lock washers
3/8 washers (Both in grade 8)
3/8 Rubber washer
1 1/4 X 3/8 (Fine Thread) Grade 5 Bolt

Funny they had grade 8 washers but no grade 8 bolts in fine thread. Oh well its not structural or anything so no big deal.

And the tools i used
Socket wrench
Sockets
40 torx
3/8 drill bit

Removed the bottom Torx bolt (40 Torx) Go slow and dont strip the threads. That would be a PITA to remove. then drilled it out with a 3/8 bit.

this is how i assembled. threw away the old mounting hardware for the motorcycle since i had all the other shiz. And went bolt->lock washer->washer->pass through to the outside->rubber Washer->Ballin Jeep Peg

Tightened everything down and this is the end result. Not bad for ~$32 bucks
Buttoned UP

Down


NO it doesnt interfere with mounting the doors

Or opening them, This is with the limiting strap maxed out.


Let me know what ya think or if you have an questions. Thanks

made a hi-lift mount across the rear roll bars in a similar fashion as already posted, only I can lock mine with a padlock. Have removed my ash tray and replaced it with another switch bezel. I've modified a rear hitch mounted cargo rack to raise it up off the ground for increased clearance. Have plans for a front bumber and rear bumper/tire carrier too, but have to get a house so I have a place to weld first...
Man I love this idea. Adding this to my list.

Awesome. I tried this with a set of pegs off my kids bike but they were too fat. I'm gonna hit the local shop today

Just found this thread...have had my TJ for about 6 months, so here's all the DIY I've done so far.

Cargo Rack







Lighting (Rear Interior/Motor Worklights/Radiator Skid LEDs)





Quick Connects for Worklights



Radiator Skid LEDs





DIY Bikini (Cut Old Soft Top I found on CL for $50)



3/4" Conduit for Rear Rigidity Strapped to Rollbar for tightness



DIY SunRider (Cut Stock Bows, 3/4" conduit, Clevis/Cotter Pins hold in place)







Questions, feel free to ask. I know some pics aren't well taken.

What it looks like all together. This is the unlocked position.

The slit I cut in the cover for the lever.

Where I connected the lever.

Hard to see, but I had to bend my lever around the backside of the mechanism here. If I had to do it again, I'd leave it flat but make it wide enough to open a hole big enough to clear this area. I just cut it too skinny. luckily I left it plenty long enough. Pay no attention to the super long machine screws I used. I just had them laying around.

All painted up and finished off... This is locked position
Dude that is an awesome idea. Jeep should make this a standard feature on all Jeeps. I hate working on my Jeep or just doing something and going to shut the back door and find out it is not locked and my keys are in the house. Come on Chrysler make this a factory feature.

Hard Top Winch

This does not pertain to me since I only have a soft top but I see a lot of posts of Jeepers building brackets to lift there hard top when they go topless. I see them purchasing a simple winch to mount to the ceiling to lift there top. My jeep has a winch and I use it anytime I can to make lifting things easier. I have a pulley hanging from the ceiling in my garage and lift my lawn mower when I need to work on it. My point is this if you have a winch on your jeep would you not just use that via a pulley or two to lift your hard top. When I get my hard top that is how I will design my setup. I am not hating just trying to help save some money. Just an idea.
