    I honestly have no idea what the heck a dead pedal is, I usually stretch my leg out no matter what I'm in. Now I am going to have to go outside and look at the floor on the driver's side, I am curious as to what you are talking about.

    Default Aftermarket?

    I have one in the Vette and Monte Carlo. Truck doesn't come with one and needs it really bad. I'm used to having a dead pedal and get full use of it in my Vette since that is also a track/autocross car.

    What aftermarket vendor makes one for the truck? It need keep your foot at the same height as the gas pedal. So it would need some amount of backing on it. Just screwing a generic dead pedal to the floor in these trucks would be show and not functional.

    I kinda just throw that foot underneath my other leg on the floorboard. If I dont, my leg gets stiff. I really don't see a reason for the foot rest.
