Drivers side foot rest?

Anyone ever add a left foot foot rest to the drivers side?

I am used to one and I also am adding driving lights which will require adding the "old style" dimmer foot switch. It will switch between driving lights and fog lights. (white & yellow)

Seems like I might as well make it large enough to accommodate room for both my foot and the switch.

Yup, I made a foot rest out of 2 short sections of 2 x 4 screwed together and cut at a 40 degree angle. just screwed it to the floor by the side wall.

For my fog / driving lights, I used a 3 way toggle switch and mounted it in the dash right beside the dimmer control. Up = fog, center = off, down = driving.

I've been wanting one for a long time. Just been too lazy to make one, even though it should be pretty simple. Amazon has some but it's ridiculous what they think they're worth!

How does that 40* feel? I'm thinking about bending up some aluminum plate after making a templet first.

The mustang pre-made would work but we have a lot of room without a clutch. I guess I could mount the switch high but it's more natural for me to move my foot to the left.

It's kinda nice to have a place to "brace" yourself. I'm surprised Monaco didn't include one.... I'm 6'1" so I'm glad there is plenty enough room down there.

There's a bunch on Amazon that simply bolt to the sidewall. I got one for my Jeep and it sucked, and then I got another one and it worked great.

4x4 cut with a angle on the front and carpeted to match the floor. Anti skid material on the bottom so it can be adjusted. It does not slip an can be removed easily.

I also added pedal extensions on the brake and accelerator pedals many years ago. My pedals are adjustable already but they still do not come out far enough for comfort and I'm not short at 5'10" ..

Jellybean,
I kind of keyed the angle off the gas pedal.
Mine has a drivers's door, so the block sits just forward of that.
I'm 5'12" and my pedals are not adjustable, so I kind of sit upright to drive.
The slide out right behind me prohibits sliding the seat all the way back.
I just painted mine and but a strip of non skid tape on the face.

Thanks for those suggestions!

Project is on hold for now. Having to replace the transfer switch and inverter in the S&B has taken priority for the time being....

I mounted one of these on the left side panel and one above the gas pedal to the side of the console and really like them. They flip up for convenience also. They are under the shower section in Amazon.

Had some flooring left and made a foot rest. Works well.

Safe travels,

Yes I did. Had a leftover strip of 1/2” plywood about 14” wide. Made a foot rest out of it, stained & laquered it. I put a ribbed rubber safety step pad on it (from Harbor Freight) where my foot rests, and on the bottom used a piece of clear plastic carpet protector used under office chairs. This has little pins protruding from one side of it and helps keep it positioned on the carpet and will not slide. Wonderful to have on any trip.

WOW! More great suggestions!!

Here is where I am at present. Leftovers from scrap except the switch to change from driving to fog lights.

Probably going to cover with a sample carpet piece if it fits; I think it will be close. That or non-skid rubber.

For the anti-slide I will try a piece of computer desk chair plastic with the "pins" sticking out the bottom. Adjustable and easy to remove for access. Time to replace my broken one anyway....

Thank You!

Glenn
