Yes - it was a bitch to put on. 1.5 hours.

Ditto. What was the issue with fitting them?

Search pedals on the forum and you can read all the troubles people have had. The brake pedal is the worst. Used soapy hot water and a heat gun and still took an hour.

Used WD-40, a hair dryer and a stubby screwdriver for the brake pedal. It took about 15 minutes. I got 2 sides on, then used the screwdriver to reach behind and "flip" bits at a time into place.

The gas pedal was a surprise. I was expecting it to snap right into place using my hands. It would not go. So I got the clips on the one side lined up and the "hollow" positioned over the original plastic pedal (it is a tight fit - alignment). Then I got into the driver's seat and pressed down hard with my foot until it clicked into place. Thought I was going to break something, but it fit perfectly.

About 25 minutes total time for me.

I love the look, but I would not do it again. In fact when I traded, I negotiated they had to out a set on the new Jeep.

I asked for a price for the pedals including dealer installation before I took delivery. $50 total. :thumbsup:

Now you just have to do the e-brake. :)

There was a thread on that, but it has to be custom fabricated. Not exactly easy for most folks.

i don't have the pedals, but that's amazing it takes so long for something you think is just a plug n play item.

It would have been easier if you didnt use the water, i think it even says not to use soapy water in the WK1 pedal instructions. Mine were a bitch to install as well. They looks great though:thumbsup:
