Once our XJ swinging pedal assembly was installed, we noticed that just as the clutch was fully disengaged, the pedal hit the floor of the old CJ. We decided it would be prudent to bend the pedal rearward to give it more throw. We used a 4 1/2-inch grinder with a cutoff wheel to cut almost all the way through the pedal. We then bent it forward and cut a bit more out before welding it up. Now the clutch is fully disengaged just before the pedal hits the floorboard.
