Left foot dead pedal

One thing I really miss is a dead (not deal - as I put in the header!) foot pedal for the driver's left foot.

In other vehicles I've owned that had one long trips were easier on the left calf muscles and ligaments.

There are a few on eBay, search for " Drivers Side Dead Foot Rest Pedal "

Anyone put one in their WK2?

re: Left foot dead pedal

I just used a rubber step tread to make a dead pedal I attached to to the carpet in that area under the parking brake.

I did it to our 2011 because my Mom's high heels poked a hole in the carpet so it took care of that problem. Then I added on to the 2012 just to keep the carpet clean.

I am sure that whatever you come up with will be fine if your source it from ebay or somewhere else.

re: Left foot dead pedal

I figured my Liberty didn't have one because the foot area was so small. I'm surprised the GC doesn't have it.

Maybe they'll surprise us for '14.

re: Left foot dead pedal

There's actually a hardened spot there, just no pedal on top of the carpet.

re: Left foot dead pedal

I did not see any posts about installing these so I went ahead and ordered a set on eBay and installed them. They look great and the package was a good price for the set of three. I used the dead pedal and gave the brake & gas pedals to my son for his 2012 Grand.
You can look up “AT Pedal Rest Plate Gas FOR Jeep Compass Grand Cherokee” on eBay to find a set of three for about $37. The quality it very good and while it comes from Hong Kong, it took less than a week to arrive.
I used a small short bit to drill for the six provided screws since it feels like it is plastic behind the carpet. It anchored very well and will protect the carpet. This matches the stock Summit gas and brake pedals pretty well. This is how Jeep should have finished off the interior!

Looks amazing. I just put the gas and brake pedals on today. This definitely needs added to complete the look.

Do you have a link to the sellers page? My search didn't turn up anything.

Re: Left foot dead pedal

The seller is "away for Chinese new year" until Feb. 9th their eBay store says. Try this after Feb 9:
items in AutoBig store on eBay!
