1985 Jeep CJ7 & Brake Buddy

I flat tow a 1985 Jeep CJ7 and bought the Brake Buddy (BB) to apply the brakes on the jeep. When I installed the BB it sat to close to the brake pedal, I removed the pad on the back of the BB and the pedal clamp that came with it. I installed a Heim Joint to the end of the BB rod and welded a bolt behind the jeep brake pedal for the Heim Joint to slide onto. It works great no issues.
