Instructions


As you can see, there really isn’t a whole lot to the M.O.R.E. Dead Pedal kit. Essentially, you get the dead pedal and additional new hardware needed for the install and that’s it.
1. To make the installation of your M.O.R.E. Dead Pedal go easier, you will want to unplug the wiring harness on your Jeep JK Wrangler’s driver side front door. The plug is located under your dash and is locked in place. In order to remove this plug, you will need to first slide the red locking tab over to the side as shown in this pic.
2. Once unlocked, press the release tab on the end of the wiring harness plug and then wiggle it side to side while pulling down until it comes free.
3. Pull the nylon strap up off the door strap retaining hook. Now that your door is no longer tethered to the body, you will need to be mindful of it as if it swings out, the mirror can hit your Jeep JK Wrangler’s cowl and dent it.
4. Using a Torx T-30 Bit, remove the 2 bolts securing the door strap retaining hook to the body of your Jeep JK Wrangler. 5. Using a 10mm wrench, remove the 2 nuts attached to the grounding studs on the side of your Jeep JK Wrangler. 6. Install your new M.O.R.E. Dead Pedal over the grounding studs and wires as shown and loosely secure it in place using the factory nuts and 2 new bolts provided.
7. Using a 10mm wrench, tighten down the 2 factory ground nuts. 8. Using a 10mm wrench, tightened down the 2 new bolts that came with the deal pedal. 9. Re-attach the door strap onto the retaining hook and re-connect the door wiring harness plug and you’re done.

As far as installs go, it doesn’t get much easier than that.Please let me know if you have any questions.

  1. I got the dead pedal. It’s great and really nice having a place for my foot to rest. Thanks for the suggestion.

  2. Great, the first thing lacking that I noticed when I bought the JK with the auto was the lack of footrest. It’s been a few years and I almost forgot. Might have to check that out!

  3. How sturdy is this, does it have any flex at all when you want to apply some pressure on it? Just curious.

  4. Highly recommend this very sturdy addition. Gotta nit-pick just a tiny bit tho – those 2 replacement bolts shoulda been black instead of shiny stainless. Up against the nice black powder-coated finish of the pedal bracket, those really stand out. Still, this is a simple mod that reaps immediate rewards.
