Are brake pedals supposed to have play/wiggle?

I was investigating some annoying rattles under driver console, and found my brake pedal can wiggle back and forth, say about half a quarter of an inch.

I don't have any other JL or car for reference, so is this wiggle by design or I need to tighten something?

Mine does the same exact thing. I would say it is normal.

Thank you, sometimes I felt stupid because ever since I got my JL, my ear suddenly became super sensitive to rattles, and this thing is a whole big cage of rattle trap...

I don't hear many rattles but do hear my 37" spare move the rear gate around once in a while :fingerscrossed:

Your comment reminded me of project RattleTrap:
