Review & Install Video
Hey everybody, I'm Justin with americanmuscle.com and this is my quick review of the Putco Liquid Pedal Covers, available for your 2015 and up F-150. Now in this video, I'm going to walk you through what you can expect with the Putco Pedal Covers as far as basic instruction, what they're gonna do to your interior styling, how they're going to affect your budget and finally, what it takes to get them installed.
Now, speaking of the installation, guys, you will need to bust out the drill for this one so for that, we're gonna call it a soft two out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, with a more complete walk-through later on. The Putco Pedal Cover set here are gonna be for the F-150 owners out there looking to add a little something extra to the interior, more specifically the pedal area here, by going with a custom made set from an industry leader like Putco. Now this is obviously gonna be more of a styling or appearance mod as opposed to a functional mod, but the Pedal Covers from Putco will add a little bit of function thanks to the included rubber plugs here that are gonna add some additional traction over your factory pedal covers.
Now typically, personally, I'm a less is more guy when it does come to the interior modifications with the newer trucks. I really think Ford did a great job and really didn't leave a whole lot of room for improvement, with one exception, the pedal area. Now, I think adding an aftermarket set of pedals or pedal covers are really gonna make a big difference overall, considering it's such a small mod. And in true Putco form, the pedal covers are going to be built very well. You're gonna be looking at quarter-inch high-quality CNC billet aluminum here for the basic construction. The actual face of the pedal covers themselves have been CNCed as well, providing a little bit more traction, whereas the included rubber plugs are really gonna help you out with the traction there and also add a little bit more to the styling.
Now, Putco does include covers for you gas pedal here, your brake pedal, and then finally your parking brake pedal as well. Some of you guys with the electronic e-brake, this pedal might be useless to you but nevertheless, it is in there. Now, I do have one more nitpick with this pedal set from Putco, and it's that they don't include a pedal cover for the dead pedal. And to me, that just leaves a slightly unfinished or incomplete look and honestly, it just loses a few points with me there, especially when you factor in the price. Now, you are gonna be dropping right around 100 bucks for this pedal kit from Putco, which isn't terrible considering the great materials and of course that custom fit, but again, for that money, I personally would have personally enjoyed seeing a dead pedal included.
As for the install, well like I mentioned earlier, you are gonna need to bust out the drill for this one, but Putco does throw in a brand new drill bit for you so that's a nice little touch. In addition to the drill, you're just looking at a basic adjustable wrench and maybe some hand or dish soap which will help making put these little rubber nubs into the pedal slightly easier. Again, because you have to drill, I'm gonna bump this one up to a soft two out of three wrenches. There's really not a whole lot of steps involved but overall, probably about an hour from start to finish to get everything wrapped up.
Your first step is to remove the factory rubber pedal covers on the factory pedals. Once those are out of the way, grab a Putco Pedal Cover, whatever one, it doesn't matter, and hold it up to your existing pedal, marking the four holes on the outside four corners there with a pen or pencil. Once everything's all marked, simply grab your drill and that included drill bit and carefully drill out the four holes you already marked. With the holes drilled, go ahead and grab your Putco Pedal Cover and install the rubber nubs included with the kit. Again, the soap might help make life a little easier here. With that all wrapped up, simply grab your Putco Pedal Cover, grab your included hardware and then install the pedal cover, one pedal at a time of course, and that pretty much wraps up your install.
In my opinion, pedal covers really are a solid choice when you're looking to upgrade the appearance of your interior because they really do make a large visual improvement without really going over the top. Now, the Putco Pedal Covers aren't gonna be the most affordable option out there, but you are getting a quality build and you are getting a perfect fit.
