    I have a 3rd gen TRD Sport MT and noticed if it's raining or I'm coming in from snow or mud that my foot will actually slip on the clutch pedal when I try to press it in. I wear slip-resistant boots so unless I get track spikes, the only thing I can do is mod the clutch pedal. Has anyone stippled the clutch pedal, found a better traction pedal, or anything to help this issue?

    in snow i recommend sitting down and clapping your shoes together before putting them in the truck.

    beyond that, i've never done anything and never slipped a pedal. good luck

    20210119_134247.jpg How is this possible? Did you lose the rubber on the clutch pedal? My machines at work have bare metal and I'm constantly smashing the clutch pedal with muddy/wet boots with no issues. Obviously, no issue in my truck as well. Maybe place your foot square on the pedal and press it straight down.

    No I had the clutch pedal replaced after 40k miles, my angle must just be weird if I'm the only one slipping. I've actually slipped so hard one top I destroyed the brake light sensor that is behind the brake pedal. I've slipped on that pedal in boots, crocs, running shoes, you name it. Once I climb in and situate myself a little more carefully then it's not a big deal, it's just that initial angle I suppose

    Oh shit haha. It all makes sense now. That rubber is pretty thick so that could explain the bad angle. You should just get the rubber piece from Toyota and adhere it back on.

    It isn't going to be great in the snow, but maybe try barefoot?

    We don't get much here other than rain, so I'm in flip flops most all of the time.


    BTW as far as feel, running shoes are the worst esp with as little feel as we get out of the clutch to start with.

    Never had this issue and i wear all sorts of shoes.

    FWIW If you have the slightest oil residue on the bottom of your shoes, it will slip like crazy. Happened to me once and i was like wtf, then realized i walked on concrete that had a barely noticable oil stain.

    Thin soles do help a lot.

    Yeah it is always specifically snow and mud. It gets caked on the pedal and makes my foot slip. I was thinking about taking a soldering iron to it and try to stipple, meaning making tiny spikes for grip

    It's fine in normal weather, just when I have been walking in snow or mud that it gets caked and makes my foot slide unless I'm careful

    The type of shoe , heel , soles , toe , weight , all impact the engagement
    Of the clutch pedal . I think we all have some favorite shoes for general all around
    Clutching and others for longer trips . The mt driver has to be much more
    In tune with the vehicle than the at guys . Too light of a shoe and your leverage
    On the pedal changes . Too big of a boot and you might have to change the position
    Of the heel of your foot in relation to the pedal .
    As drivers of our machines , we are at one with our rigs .

    I have rubber floor mats and when I'm stepping in a foot of snow, it's a little difficult to completely clean off my boot unless I attach a boot cleaner to the cab. Not to mention I don't want to worry about spending 10 extra minutes to clean the underside of my boot just so I can drive my truck. I've never had this issue before until I got the 3rd gen
