    Wilwood, I believe that's how you spell it, makes some nice stuff. Not sure if the swinging pedal set up from an intermediate will work in a flatty or not. May be another option to explore.

    You might take a look a Pontiac Fiero. They are not swing peddles so much as firewall mounted, but I have seen them used and they worked well.

    I am finishing a setup with the Wilwood stuff - seperate pedals with a dual MC for brakes and small one for clutch. I should have some pics next week after we get back from vacation (burning the midnight oil to get this on done to go too).

    Late 80's cherokee pedals, power brake master cylinder and hydraulic slave cylinder with a brake light switch. All can be had for very cheap and every flaps in the world stocks both master cylinders. Very easy to cut out a piece of 3/16 steel to stiffen up the firewall and is truly a bolt in swap. Why re-create the wheel when Jeep paid very smart guys with lots of college degrees to do all the math for you. Can easily be done from a local Pull-a-Part type wrecking yard for about $50 total.

    I agree with the above post. 84' to 2001 Cherokee pedals fit like a glove. They are dirt cheap at the pic-n-pull and need very little work to fit. Here are some pictures of my setup. I believe mine was from a 94'.

    You just need to trim off a little off the top of the support bracket so it can fit up high enough under the dash without hitting the cowl. Then add a bit of metal to reach the dash face for maximum support. I don't have any pictures of it modified but it is easy and straight forward

    I probably have some more details in my buildup here. http://www.earlycj5.com/forums/show...h-Columbia-do-it-all-CJ2A-build-with-V8-Power

    Good thing the hood overlaps the fenders, GregR) I have all my wiring though that upper left corner so mounted the clutch master facing towards the rear, under the dash. That took a bit of reverse engineering--

    Yup. That was definitely a tight fit but it works. There is clearance to the hood for the clutch master cyl. and the brake booster has adequate clearance to the valve cover on the engine. What more could you want?:)

    The Cherokee might be a good option, if I could find one that had a std trans - the few that can be found around here were all autos.

    Parts list of what I am using:
    http://www.summitracing.com/parts/WIL-250-3677/ - adaptor for pedals to single MC I liked
    http://www.summitracing.com/parts/WIL-260-1304/ - clutch cyl
    http://www.summitracing.com/parts/WIL-260-4894/ - MC
    http://www.summitracing.com/parts/WIL-340-1290/ - pedals - you need two of these.

    I extended the firewall over the motor a bit to fit them like I wanted. I'll try for pics when I get back from vacation.

    The pedals out of a '73 Datsun pickup fit perfectly. you get the double bowl master out of a 240/260Z and the clutch master out of a CJ7, you have to elongate the mounting holes a little on the clutch master, and it all bolts up. The only negative is no power brakes.

    Warlock you are the man! I'm all about trying to eliminate floor pan holes in my jeep and I'm totally new to your clutch setup. What pushes the clutch fork forward and are there pics and part links to summit for that? Thank you?
