Swing/Hanging Pedals

What pedals have you guys used for swing pedals in your jeeps. The last ones I put in my 2A were from a mid 90's mustang but I was hoping from something a little easier and stronger. Any suggestions of what worked well?

An XJ pedal pack seems to be about the perfect fit for a flat fender. I have a link or two in my Rango buildup. You can still get them surplus for like $40 new.

You can do just the auto version with a brake pedal only....or you can do the manual version with hydraulic clutch.

I am in the process of trying to make a nice template for the conversion as part of my build.

I used CJ7 pedals cut down because I still run a mechanical clutch linkage (bellcrank).
I also have pushed the drivers side footwell out to get more room for swing

advance adapters has a kit, but it uses a funky master cylinder. i'm sure a willwood or such could be adapted.

Here's a picture at the bottom of my wilwood master cylinder. I can get a picture of the pedals later, but for now this is all I have.

The bellhousing I used was from a 65 chevy pickup with a factory clutch slave. However, I can not use the stock exhaust manifold no, because it dumps out into the slave.



I got my firewall all welded up.



And I mounted my wilwood clutch and brake master / pedals. Wilwood rep, said it should work with no problem, will see. If not I do have a hydroboost set up, but I did not want to run it if I do not have to. I did leave enough room to mount the hydroboost in the same location as the brake mastercylinder, without moving the clutch master.

I'de like to stick with off the shelf parts as opposed to wildwood or similar. I think the XJ pedals sound like a good option. Do you have to cut anything off the main frame or do they stuff up under the dash pretty nice?

You have to trim a bit off the top of the frame it looks like. I will have all the details in my build thread when I get that far. No trimming the pedals though, and you can run the booster directly inline ( if you can fit the booster ). I will be making a manual brake master cylinder adapter for mine.

Anyone have access to a manual trans XJ that can measure the mounting location for the clutch master cylinder.

I reverse engineered the location, but I would like to see how close I got....or at least know I am in the ballpark....

I had a friend measure his and all he could tell me is that they are 8" apart center of cap to center of cap.
