Re: Stainless Pedal for Emergency Brake

I was wondering how these were holding up? Anyone else tried this?

Mine is holding up great and I still haven't applied any epoxy or 3m tape. I used the parking brake at least a dozen times this weekend and no slippage of the cover.

I applied some JB Weld on Friday evening and held the stainless cover in place with a couple zip ties while it set up overnight. I had been waiting for some consistent warmer temps since the weld is happiest setting up in temperatures over 50. Removed the ties the next morning and touched up some areas, where the grey JB Weld was visible, with a black Sharpie.

I'm very happy with the result and it's not going anywhere. I'm fairly certain it will outlive the rest of the Jeep.

The girlfriend laughs at me, but having all three pedals match feels good.

Re: Stainless Pedal for Emergency Brake

Thanks to all the info in this thread I added the e-brake pedal back in December. Followed Foster's method, and then secured with Shoe-Goo. Install was easy and took less than 30 minutes. 7 months later it's still secure and looks awesome, IMO.

Re: Stainless Pedal for Emergency Brake

I love mods like this. Easy, cheap and look great.

Got mine installed last night. Easy as apple pie.

Thanks OP.

Re: Stainless Pedal for Emergency Brake

Guys there is no need to cut up the pedal.

I went that route the first time and it was not permanent in my case kept slipping and coming off.

On my second attempt I went with the philosophy that you don't need to modify the pedal cover but instead make an adapter.


So here is what I did I made a card board template of the inside of the pedal. It was basically a lot of trimming and test fitting to get the fit I wanted.


Next I went to my body shop of choice and asked them to cut me a peice of sheet metal based on the template.

To mount my newly made adapter what I did was simply drill a hole in the Parking brake lever and one in the template and used a sheet metal screw to mount them togeter.

I had to bend the edges of the adapter slightly upwards so that I could stretch the pedal over it.

Voila there you have an unmodified pedal cover in your truck
