I had been so frustrated with the 300.00 and 400.00 dollar prices on 2nd gen charger jacks  
 I need two and just cant see spending that much cash on a jack .  Well here was my solution  ,  standard B body jack and a 77 dodge pick-up brake pedal .  Yup not completed yet but they will look really close and i have 100.00 bucks invested total in the two .  I had heard rumors this could be done and i think once in the trunk will look not perfect but pretty close or close enough for me  .

Oh please, do not take that the wrong way.  No insult meant in any way at all.  I am laughing at the ingenuity of the whole thing and the scene from Forrest Gump just popped in my head.  Probably because its just something we shout at each other sometimes here at my own work when someone comes up with an idea like that.
Trughfully buddy lots of love, my hat is off to you.

i cant take the credit for  whole idea because i have seen reproductions out there , but when i saw a dodge truck brake pedal here at the salvage yard that was so close in contour I knew it would make the job alot easier .

The bag on the shaft has the little extra pieces of metal i cut off the pedal , that i will cut to fit behind the plate on each side to fill in the gap and help support the flange/plate .

I can get them (when they come available) for around $175. That price is for one that works and is complete but needs restored. When I saw your post I called the guy and he doesn't have any right now but my name will supposedly be written down now as being in need of one. Two is a tall order but it can happen if given enough time.

Stuart, I think you have a good head on your shoulders sir.

I myself wouldn't have paid that much out either. There is always ways out there about going about something.. you just have to think of them is all, like you did, even though the whole idea isn't yours. But the concept does work though. If Bull want's the spend $300.00 then let him  lol. You could spend $600.00 (for 2) also. But why when there is other way's that also work's. You now have two, an it's not none of my business at how much you have invested in them or the pieces. So out of $300.00 or $600.00 look at what you saved in doe ray me  2thumbs.  My one cousin loose to run a junking yard about 5 years ago, he retired about 4 years ago. But I can still see all kind of jacks laying around his junk yard. He cleared out of the cars he had in by hauling them to the scrap yard 3 hours away. But he still has stuff laying about up in the yard though. His son now semi runs the yard. Like you, if they couldn't find a tool they needed, an if they could make the tool, they shure as heck did  2thumbs

So...I'm guessing the price of pickup truck brake pedals just went up... smilielol

It started out as a rusty, green '69 R/T SE.

Now, it's well on it's way to being a Daytona.

A fake Daytona, that is.
