That looks really good b_a. Can you put a lot of force on it?b_a_betterperson said:
You are not alone. I like having the room to stretch out my leg over on the left. On long trips it's nice. When I test drove the 05, it really felt odd to have my foot at that angle. But, for 50 extra horsepower, I will adapt when I trade up to an 06. :cheerstoolman said:I must be one of the only ones that do not miss having one, of course I have only owned one car that had one. It seemed that the dead pedal in the car that I had before was too close to me to use, of course I am 6'4''.
Yes, you can put as much force on it as you want. If you wanted to put a washer and nut on -- no problem -- although it isn't necessary. Drilling small pilot holes before driving the screws yields perfect results. Feels like it's welded in. You'll need to play with the seating of the pedal on the angle iron a little bit -- but once that's done -- you've got a something as good as anything from the factory.jason_w_carter said:That looks really good b_a.

Where you used the sheetmetal screws, is there room and access to install a washer and nut? That would reassure me that it would hold a little better.
The 05 model has a different pedal configuration as well as a dead pedal?Xman said:Since no one has made a kit, don't expect someone to make one now since this is only an 04 issue. I used a 2x4 to fabricate one. Since it rests on the front firewall, I can stand on it all I want. Covered it with black carpet and you can't tell it is even there. I need one plus it helped reduce the amount of interferance with my foot snagging as I would bring it up to activate the clutch (the foot angle is better). Switching the pedal covers to the 05 configuration took care of the rest of my interference problem.
