I bought the TIXO dead pedal from Amazon. It doesn’t go to the floor. I really wanted the Quadratec pedal which goes to the floor. After several email chats with them Quadratec finally admitted they haven’t engineered one to fit the 4xe. So the one I have is ok for now. And it was only like $20.

I had a Mountain OffRoad installed. It works great. Gives me something I can push against for stability.
it fits any JL. 4xe or not, same pedal. I’m 5’10” and Have it on the shortest of three settings. I like a bent knee.

Yeah. I was looking for something like the longer Qudratec one.

I received the Quadratec dead pedal as a birthday gift. I was able to get it to fit in my 4xe. I used a different bolt than it's designed to use (since the one you're supposed to use isn't here, so they say it's incompatible).

Location of missing bolt is in Red, bolt I used is in Green. It's only about an inch or two higher up and, maybe, an 1/8 of inch off center towards the right.

The issue with this bolt is that it's recessed into a plastic guard of some sort. So, I bought a fully threaded rod and coupling nut to extend the bolt out of the recessed plastic:
First, I took the four screws out of the driver's seat so I could move it back so I had room to work. I cut the rod to about an inch and filed off the burs. Then I threaded it into the coupling nut, and then threaded the coupling nut onto the bolt in the firewall. I locked it with an additional nut which I took off after I was done. After that, I was able to put the Quadtrac dead pedal on the rod which is now extending the recessed bolt. I put a couple washers on and the locking nut which came on the recessed bolt to secure the dead pedal. It took me about 45 minutes to an hour.

It works pretty well. I have long legs, so it's pretty comfortable. It might not sit perfectly like it would if it was on the correct bolt but you don't notice it while driving.

Here are pictures of the installed pedal.

Nicely done. I really wanted this pedal. Too bad you can’t sell your mod to Quadratec, lol
