I just installed mine today. I did the brake pedal the same way, but without cutting a slit. I slipped it up from the bottom, then stuck a screwdriver in the top right corner and got that to pop over after a few tries. Then slowly worked the screwdriver over to the left until the left corner popped over. The gas pedal took a little force to get snapped on, especially because I didn't want a broken gas pedal!

Got em installed. Brake pedal was indeed a bitch. Looks good though! Really wish the kit came with a matching e-brake pedal.

Re: What do you think of the pedal kit?

Bump. I got lazy and let the dealer put in the pedal kit while they were doing some other stuff. They really look fantastic!

Unsurprisingly, the brake pedal doesn't grip the foot quite as well as stock. It's not slippery, just not as grabby.

Re: What do you think of the pedal kit?

Have the sport pedals here as well. I had the dealer install them as it was part of the deal I negotiated with all my accessories when I picked up the Jeep. I think they look great and would highly recommend them!

Re: What do you think of the pedal kit?

I wonder how difficult it is to remove the brake pedal and install the new pedal on the bench.

Re: What do you think of the pedal kit?

I would do it, it looks like the ones from the SRT8? I had something similar in my Audi TT and it adds a nice visual appear and adds 5 HP
