Yes, be sure to read the link. These are definitely not a bolt-on mod.

I got a set of these...sure look alot better when they are clean though.
They are store bought, but gay looking, I think not. If you ever find a set of pedals with a picture of Richard Simmons on them.......that's gay.

The ones I got were easy to install and don't move...they're on good and snug. I've seen some really cheap aftermarket ones that are just crap. My buddy had a crap pair that kept falling off. The gas pedal one would slide down and get caught on the floor.....really wasn't safe.

Guess there are better aftermarket ones out there.

Bob do you have any pictures of how you cut down the mustang pedals on the back? Did you have to remove the rubber coating on the stock ranger pedals?

Sorry, Kyle, no pictures except the finished mod. The stock Ranger pedal pads are easy to remove. Just pull them off. Then you would need to taper the bottom of the steel plates underneath to match the shape of the Bullitt Mustang pads. Although the soft rubber Ranger pads come off easily, installing the harder Mustang pads can be a challenge, especially in colder temperatures.

I just went to Steeda and mixed and matched from mustangs. I just used double sided tape to put them on. My emergency brake pedal is to big though, but not too big.

I just stuck them to the factory rubber pads. They down't move a bit, just a little on the emergency brake, because its too big.
