I don't have a dead pedal in my track. Do any of the models come with one, or has anyone put one that fits well in their truck?

Why do you need a specific place to put your left foot? Why can't you just put it where it's comfortable and enjoy the drive? It has a brain. Let it figure out where it wants to sit. :lol:

I am not looking for a new place to put it, I am looking for a rubber protector to prevent my dirty feet from staining my tan carpet.

:rofl: I would highly recommend you look into some aftermarket (or OEM) floormats, not a 1 1/2" x 3" dead pedal! :rofl: How small are your feet? :lol: Seriously, a dead pedal is useless to keep your carpeting clean since it's the LAST place you put your foot after you're driving, AFTER you rub all the crap off the bottom of your shoes while getting in, starting, adjusting, etc.... The dead pedal was invented as a place for the driver to brace his left leg during hard cornering. It's not a floor mat or carpet protector! :rofl:

I bought some thick rubber mats for my 08 for that exact reason.

Wow your wisdom is overwhelming! :rolleyes:

I understand that you are a being of all knowledge, but your world and my world must not overlap.


I do have floor mats and plan to get the weathertech liners, however neither the floor mats nor the liners cover that part of the carpet. That spot is the most comfortable spot for my foot. An elevated dead pedal would keep my slimy shoes from smearing mud, clay, etc into the carpet in that area as the part of my shoe that is not on the pedal would be on the liner.

I was not looking for completely different solutions than what I asked for, I was looking for answers to a specifc question.

I am looking for the same. I have had dead pedal's in many vehicles I have owned and when you don't have one you miss it. If the dead pedal sticks out just fare enough so the heel of your foot will rest on your all weather floor mats this will keep your carpet clean. I think I will start to design my own.

This was one of the few things I found myself looking for when I bought my Titan. I needed a dead pedal before. Driving with a manual transmission for so many years, my left leg is naturally comfortable in a stretched position. Either right above the clutch pedal or on a dead pedal.

I'll be taking on this project myself in the future as well if nobody here has any definitive aftermarket parts that will work for the Titan as a dead pedal.

Gee, you guys want one of us to come and do it for you? It's just a piece of metal you're bolting to your floor. It has to say "specifically for the Titan" on it? Geez..... It can't be very hard to mount any one of them. Plus they all pretty much look the same. A little ingenuity and personal inventiveness would go a long way to making it "your" mod, and not just something some guy came up with that you bought cuz he said so..... But, by all means, wait 3 or 4 more years for the aftermarket to feel that this truck is worth the depth of accessories as the Big 3 who've been around for 100 years. It could happen some day. Good luck to you.

If you reread my original post you will see that none of your comments help in any way to my request. The only thing you have accomplished is an increased post count, which appears to be important to you.

I have no problem determining the proper angle and finding a pedal to fit then installing it. I was simply looking for an OEM pedal that would be simple to install or an aftermarket one that has been proven to work well in a Titan. I am not trying to reinvent the wheel here, nor am I trying to get credit for documenting a how to. I was simply checking to see if this has already been covered prior to doing it myself.

Ok.... Let's break down your original post then, shall we?

You have a Titan? Or a large paved oval? :jester:

Mine has one already. I believe it was a standard feature in the '04-'07 Titans.

See above...

I've been here for some time, and have read quite a few threads around here, and have yet to see any that refer to installation of a dead pedal. Good luck in your search. Let us know if you find one that works. :cheers:

I was not aware of that, I have only seen a raised floorboard area with a ridiculously small rubber patch sewn into the carpet, which I don’t even have in my 08. If they were available in other year/model Titans I will try searching for an OEM one then.

Well, THAT's the dead pedal. Maybe you can fab a plate to put over the top of that if it's not enough. Like ^^^^this guy did in the link. May not be as fashionable as one in the shape of a bare foot, but it will do what you want.
