The challenger parking brake pedal is a nice compliment to the pedal set that comes with the SRT8. But that is not the area that annoys me.

Elp_jc had it right....nothing there but carpet. Would definitely be interested in an aftermarket solution.

Not me . I personally wouldn't like the parking brake pedal to attract attention to itself, so it's fine with me the way it is. But I can see the attraction if it matches the other pedals. To me, more than bling, is to avoid messing up the carpet over time, which WILL happen. Hope to see some pictures from the owner who installed it.

Good to hear about the WeatherTech 'liners', but HATE how they look, and will never buy them. But again, I can see people's attraction to those, especially in the snow belt. Good day gang.

Hey man, could you please post a nice picture? And what changes did you make? I asked them for a template, but haven't printed it yet.

What I don't like is the SRT has a depression next to the side and about halfway up, so we could only secure the pedal with 3 screws. The upper left one wouldn't be solid... unless we put a spacer behind.

And finally, what's behind the dead pedal? Is it safe to drill? And is it plastic or cardboard? Did the screws provided by Ultimatepedals bite hard enough for the pedal to feel solid? Thanks man. I've used Ultimatepedals twice in the past, but found nicer and cheaper alternatives. Unfortunately, nobody makes a dead pedal for the SRT, so we have no choice. Thanks man.

Ditto. I have one picked out but am looking for info on attaching it w/o causing damage under carpet. Anyone have picks & comments?

Couldn't wait any longer...
I ordered the three piece set off eBay and used the dead pedal. It comes with all the hardware and the quality is excellent. The foot rest area seems to be made of plastic so I drilled small holes for the six screws and hand tightened them. It looks awesome with the stock Summit pedals.
Here are some pics of the ebay set of three as well as just the dead pedal I installed.
