    These are all approximates:

    Firewall inner to dash outer ~13.5"
    The pedals have a high pivot point and the push rods connect below the pivot point
    Overall length of pedals ~14"
    Clutch push rod is connected ~2.25" below pivot
    Brake push rod is connected 3" below pivot
    There are about ~5" between pedal levers at Roxor steering shaft location
    The backer plate holding the hole assembly is ~10" wide

    Did you happen to do your checks? I didn't have time this past weekend.

    Great info. I'm trying to picture these measurements, I feel like an actual picture would help :D

    Here are some pictures of my measurements. Note my body is a Willys Overland repro tub and a summit racing steering column so measurements may be different on original CJ's. Firewall to dash is 13.5". Pedal length should work but I'm not good at measuring this. Looks like at 14", they will fit where the original floor pedals sat.

    From firewall hump to left of steering column:

    Hump to steering column (about 1.5"-2"):

    Left of steering column (roughly 5" from firewall hump):

    I still plan on getting these to work since they are cheaper than 1 wilwood pedal but I think in my setup, I will probably have to cut the mounting bracket to fit.

    Let me know if anyone needs other measurements. Once they are in (hopefully next week) I'll take more pictures with measurements and post here as well as my Moneypit build thread

    I'm wondering if the firewall side bolt pattern or pedal bracket size will adapt to either a standard sized dual reservoir master cylinder or booster adapter or direct mount 7 -8 " dual vacuum booster?

    Their parts prices seem very reasonable, and the OEM quality seems solid. I'd opt for an entirely OEM Roxor clutch/brake setup if it'd fit, and it sure looks like it will. I'm curious what Dgroshek comes up with.

    That looks really promising for fitment (y)

    Still waiting on the shipment... I kind of feel like a kid waiting for Christmas with this order. Except I have no idea when Christmas will be.

    Just got a call - The cluster is in! I will update tonight with measurements and whatnot. Anyone feel free to ask for specific measurements and I'll post them.

    Did you swap in a CJ grill?

    Measurements when I get home but here's some pictures I took while at the distributor. They had a few around the building. If I had $19K to blow, I probably would've left with one of these. They're sweet.


    The pedal assembly is pretty robust from first glances. It does not come with a engine side firewall plate though if you order the brake booster and clutch master cylinder it may. Don't bother purchasing the gas pedal as this is electrically operated and I highly doubt it would work.

    Here we go. First fitment tries were a rousing success. The ONLY two things I'm worried about are (1) The pivot angle - If these pedals go as far as the springs allow when all set up, they will hit the floor; and (2) I may cut the right backing plate about 1/4" to allow for more brake pedal clearance from my summit racing steering wheel.

    I plan on pushing this cluster up as far as I can on the firewall and mounting. I'm not sure what to do with the mounting holes to the dash though. Thinking about welding some threaded studs to the inside of the dash. If any one has some ideas, I'd love to hear them!

    Now for measurements:

    Overall backing plate width: 10"

    Overall backing plate height: 9"

    Top of pedal arm to bottom of brake pedal: 14.75" to 15". The pedal support arm is tilted up as you can see in the pictures

    Total height: 14". My measurement may be off just a tad but it fits nice and snug from the firewall to the dash. No play between the two!!

    Outside Pedal to Outside Pedal: 5.25"

    Another measurement I don't know what to call: 4.5"

    Very rough spacing pictures (pedals are tilted a bit. Didn't have help getting these to stay and no bolts attached at this point):

    :bananatool:Got a call from distributor, sending pedals on to arrive in San Diego by Friday!


    Did not realize these vehicles are “street legal “ in Arizona, just cannot drive on highway/freeway according to the Phoenix Roxor dealer

    Mounting this assembly may have been the easiest thing I've done on my build. 4 bolt holes to get it lined up and in place. Took me maybe 30 minutes. Once all bolted up, I cut a hole for the clutch master cylinder. Still to do to get this thing 100% done: 1. cut hole for brake master cylinder. 2. Figure out how to mount the front of the pedal assembly to my dash. If you're not worried about bolts through the dash, all you have to do is drill 3 holes and bolt up. 3. If there is any play in the firewall after mounting to the dash, I will add a thick piece of metal in the engine compartment.

    Before playing with the pedal throw, pedals stuck up pretty far making it seem like it would be hard to brake:

    After messing with the throw a bit; the pedals both move 4.5" before they hit the floor. I'm sure I'll fine tune this once I get my hydraulic clutch and brakes all set in:

    The grill overlay is modular. An outfit outa Montana makes a 6-slot mimic look overlay. I got one and paint matched it.

    Street legality varies by state.

    Dgroshek, that is cool man!! Are you thinking about running the Roxor masters too? I’m still deciding what to do with my ‘57, but the whole shebang sure looks apealing.
