I have a stupid question. I raised the seat in my jeep up an inch simply because I like it better that way. My girlfriend who will be driving the jeep in the summer can not fully press the pedals with the seat as far forward as she can go till her knees hit. what is the easiest way to make it for she can get the clutch, break, and gas all the way in? bolt a block of wood to each one?

I think the easiest option is to date a girl with longer legs or make the seat stock again. Pedal extensions would be time consuming to fit them correctly. Attaching anything homemade would be a liability and put your girl and people around her at risk.
Back to technical, welding on extensions would be great for when she drives it, but what about when he drives? Take out the sawzall and cut below the ankle?
If it's made so she is right on with the seats all the way forward, he will be able to put the seats all the way back. Thats quite a bit of movement. Im 5'11" and still have 50%+ left from stock to go back.
Or he could dump her and find a normal sized girlfriend.
(BTW...My wife is 5 foot nothing...she just doesnt drive the jeep. She can walk under it and bring me a beer when its on jack stands though .)
Hmmmmmm, I do not think getting rid of her is the best idea in the world, and she is not that small, she is 5 foot 2. Maybe I could make another pedal and shaft and bolt it to the existing pedal shaft so that the new pedal would be above the old one. It would just have to be easily removed. In the summer she is not going to have much choice on how to get to work. I was simply going to let her drive the Jeep once she can drive stick and I would take my motorcycle like I usually do when it is warm.
But anyways what do you think of my new idea with the "new pedals" and i drive with my seat all the way back.
It makes sense to me that it would work, but I would still be concerned about the liability aspect. If she gets in an accident it may be a problem. I can imagine those greedy insurance companies dropping you and refusing to pay. Not sure if this is a valid concern, but I'd check it out.
