And as far as it being uncomftrabke, you tried messing with the seat and moving it around maybe a more foward angle to put less strain on your foot

Re: Right foot fatigue

Not having the Jeep yet, but from other cars, I know depending on how I am sitting and with my wallet in my right rear pocket my leg will crap sometimes.

Take the wallet out(only a few cards in it, not really thick) and it resolves itself

Re: Right foot fatigue

My chiropractor once told me that if you sit with a wallet in your back pocket, it doesn't matter how thick, you might as well have a brick in your pocket. If I'm driving more than a short trip I take it out. My wife's more than happy to hold on to it for me.

When I put it to the floor this one can get up over 100 mph a lot quicker.

Actually I think the problem is the opposite.

On the 02 the spring was so much stronger I could rest my foot on it.

With the 14 it has such a light touch and 8 gears I think I'm suspending my foot above the pedal (even if it's touching and holding a speed).

It doesn't balance the weight of my foot like the 02 did.

With my shoe off, my foot is lighter.

I wonder if there is a way to add tension.

I had to get a lighter spring for my parent's Buick years ago because my mother couldn't hold the pedal down on long trips.

Re: Right foot fatigue

If possible I always drive with cruise control. I am prone to a heavy foot so it keeps me out of trouble, but I also can re-position my leg to have a flat foot on the floor. I also have a clutch so it makes slowing down easier by downshifting while getting my foot onto the brake or gas

Where do we find that? Can you post 10 or 12 pictures to show us how it works?

Re: Right foot fatigue

I was going to mention the wallet in the back pocket thing because I had the same problem. Also, try to make sure you have something supporting the arch in your lower back and put the back of your seat up a bit.

I had lower back pain for 20 years from a construction accident. Some days I couldn't get out of bed and was on some pretty nice drugs. I felt the pain in my knee and ankle and my foot would fall asleep. Which is bad for driving. LOL. Thought I would have to have surgery. Screw that. It was so bad that when I went to Vegas for a weekend, I was on so much pain medication that I couldn't even drink or party and was in bed by midnight.

Went to a physio that practices the simple Mackenzie Method. Turns out that the bulging discs were pressing against my spinal cord sending a false message to my brain that I had pain in my leg. The simple exercises restored the curve in my lower back. Doesn't work for everybody but for me, after 20 years, no more pain. Like night and day so I'm real happy.
