Update -
Named him "Flamma" after the Roman Gladiator. Been busy building (very mild build compared to most) getting ready to take him out to Colorado for the All4Fun event in late July put on by the Mile High Jeep Club! I'm thoroughly enjoying this great truck! Previously owned a TJ and JK so the JT is a much improved ride! Hope you enjoy the step-by-step posts below! Look for pictures and maybe video from the week at All4Fun!

Love the dead pedal idea.... Searching on line now....
This one seems like a very good quality one. First time I’ve had one but think I’ll like it when I’m in Colorado in late July.

I got them from the local Jeep Dealer. They fit perfect but not sure if they are the JL ones or not. I'll look at the part number when I get home tonight and post it. One dealer said they weren't available yet and the other one got them for me in a day.....??
