I love my Jeep, but can't help lament about the size of the footwell (for right hand drives), especially when going on longer trips.

I don't have the biggest feet (size 9) but often wonder how others cope with such a small space.
There was a US thread not too long ago where members were posting recommended dead pedals - I could only look on with envy.

Just curious what others do, and if it irritates them,

Are the passenger side (US) footwells smaller than the driver side? I have the same size feet as you and feel like there is plenty of space for my left foot to roam about as it pleases...

Agreed, I have a size 14 shoe and there is barely any room in the well. Driving a manual wasn't even an option.

Its all to do with the space between the break pedal and the sides of the centre console. If it was a left hand drive, the additional space would be amazing.

I have Sasquatch feet, so the narrow footwell is definitely noticeable to me. Still not accustomed to it after 6 months.

I quickly learnt to wear running shoes or Volleys when driving my Jeep. I am size 9 or 10 and with those I have plenty of space.

Now I feel a tad greedy for wanting more space - you seem to have no problem 🤔.

If you guys drove on the right side of the road you wouldn’t have this problem! ;)

I have big feet. I only just ordered a new Rubicon yesterday but I instantly remembered about the footwell size from my JK I used to own when I test drove the JL. It was the first thing! It's annoying but I did get used to it in the JK.

If you think the Jeep has a small footwell, try a BMW 3 or 4 series. I wear size 11 shoes and have no issues. Although, I have no experience with RHD anything.

I've only had Jeeps since 2001, I think my left foot is smaller than the right now ;) Honestly though I don't notice it anymore, haven't for many years and I regularly wear work boots or Dr Martens (Wide sole) with no problems.

I'm getting used to it, it's not too bad. My biggest gripe is that there's no footrest for the left leg, that would make it so much more comfortable. I may look at putting in a few nutserts for attaching some kind of footrest.

If you go ahead, please let me know how it works out for you!
