Overland: Adjustable Pedals?

Went and looked at an Overland today and was having a difficult time figuring out how to adjust the "adjustable pedals." Does anyone know if these come standard on the overland? Maybe I was just looking in the wrong area for the switch...

Pedals don't adjust, just the seat and steering column a dozen different ways..

Re: Overland: Adjustable Pedals?

Back in Oct 2010, that was a question I had too being 6'8" in height with 5'6" Wife.
Not an option for the available models, but I do recall Adj Pedals were offered on some special model... like a Service Fleet type of model. I don't have pamphlet at moment, but I think it was listed in one of the original pieces of Jeep literature... again, noted as NOT available on Street models, only available on Fleet.

I recall this tidbit info since I too explored the possibility to get it as long as it was offered on some type of WK2... the parts would be available. But after driving the WK2, and a few 18 hour driving days... the pedals are not an issue for me.

Wow, at 6'8" you have enough headroom? Presumably sans sunroof, cuz I'm 6'4" and find it little more than adequate with sunroof. Mea culpa: I tend to keep the seatback somewhat erect, which chews up headroom.

BTW, as with you my wife is also 14" shorter than me; yet, the WK2 seems to accommodate various heights quite well. The pedals are fine for both of us, and once I adjust the tilt/telescopic Overland steering wheel for me, my wife finds that same setting to be nigh perfect for her. Those would seem to be indicators of superior ergonomics.

WK2 ergo fits great, I agree they did a super job fitting the extremes of height! I'm used to POV's where 1/4 to 1/2" head room clearance is maximum, the WK2 with seat almost fully down & Pano Sunroof, I have about 1.5-2" clearance... which is one of many reasons I selected the WK2. Full Size GM & Ford SUV's w Sunroof had negative headroom... needing an extra 1" to fit.

Overall, fully satisfied with WK2! One minor issue is Instrument Pod... if they redesign Pod without redesigning the physical dash... I would consider swapping Instrument Pods. Angle of Speedo in relation to Steering Wheel basically blocks 45mph upward... maybe based on my height, but I think I've read other threads with same issue. I use the digital Speedo primarily.
