    Picked up a bunch of parts for an LS swap that I won’t be doing anytime soon but was out in the garage and decided to to some modding.

    I started with a DBW adjustable pedal from an 03 Yukon. While I was at the yard I also pulled a spare pedal from a 90 Sierra so I didn’t have to cut up mine haha

    I then laid them out and marked where I wanted to cut them

    Cuts were made

    After cutting I drilled a 3/8” hole in the bottom of the DBW pedal and slid in the original pedal.

    Now once I figure out the mounting inside the cab (looks like I’ll just line up the bottom hole and drill out the upper two) I will weld it into its final postion. I’ll update this when I get to that point but it probably won’t be for a long time lol

    I wonder if you could just use the pedal from a Topkick and have it bolt into place. The L21 454 was dbw.

    You probably can I’ve also seen people using the DBW pedal from one of the 6.5 trucks but you have to repin a few of the wires.
    I’m fairly certain this pedal won’t be an issue to bolt in though and the price was right for it

    I modified an 05 truck pedal for my swap. Works excellent and feels perfect. Plus the 05 bracket bolted to two of the original holes, only had to drill 1 more [​IMG]

    I would have simply used a 6.5 pedal. I squirrelled the one away from my flipper truck that I converted to gas, but it's unlikely I'll ever run DBW since the GenIV stuff is so damned pricey.
