I have them on my R/T but the dealer did the install...but I love how they look, plus I have a Mopar T-Shifter that looks great too.

I LOVE ChallengerTalk.com!

The bright pedals are just covers. The gas is super easy and just clips on. The brake is a pain in the butt. I suggest putting the brake cover in hot water for a few minutes prior to install and then spray with windex right before installing. You will probably invent a few new words when doing the brake pedal.

You should have seen me with the challenger. I have done this on two vehicles. The srt jeep and challenger. The jeep was done first and it did not go all that bad. Which just pissed me off more when I had such a tough time with the challenger. I almost threw a damn temper tantrum. I was really close to winging the damn thing through the neighbors window. Then all of a sudden I got it and did a little victory dance followed by a long test drive. You know, had to see how she ran with the new pedals.

The instructions said to use dish soap, that didn't work, had some all purpose spray lube, worked perfect...Used it installing another set and made it easier too

For that brake pad: one minute in boiling water, no problems. Started at the bottom, worked the sides around, and did most of the top by hand. Standard screwdriver to finish off the top.

And you don't need to run out to the car immediately after pulling the pad from the boiling water... if you do, the metal is still darn hot and you'll utter a cuss word or two trying to manipulate it. The plastic stays pliant for a few minutes, so there's no big rush.
