    There is all this complaining out there about stealerships hacking away at gas pedals in order to fulfill Toyota’s promise to fix a perceived problem. (We all know it’s in the computer controlled drive by wire system) I’m really not in a hurry to bring in my truck to a stealership to let some half witted trunk monkey hack away at my gas pedal with a dull saw.:eek::mad:
    So, next week I will call the Toyota customer service # and politely ask them to send a new gas pedal to my local stealership, I will then drive in and have the pedal replaced properly.:rolleyes:
    Has anyone tried this simple approach?:D

    I told the dealership I don't want my pedal cut up and would rather have the new updated one installed. They transferred me to the parts dept and it's on order. As soon as it comes in I'll get the work done. The recall notice says if your unhappy with the pedal trim you can get a whole new pedal installed...I'm just saving them the time and trouble of having to cut it. With the amount we paid for our trucks I really think Toyota can afford to install new pedals instead of doing this redneck fix.
