I'm sure there's a more elegant way, but I eventually just made a small incision right in the middle of the cap and used a flathead to pop them off, then sealed it up with a small dab of glue after reassembling. The pedals take a beating anyway, so I didn't care too much! I swapped the cro-mo axles from a clearance set of resin pedals and was even able to use the smaller bearings in the crank-side cups for a little more smoothness (did not fit properly in the outboard cups).

I'm also a fan of the regular old Wellgo LU-487s that came rebranded on every basic bike for a couple decades. I rode them on my Huffy Tremor until I recently went to square taper and put on some Odyssey Triple Traps, which I just mangled on a 20mi trail day haha! Slid of the side of the trail right into a tree lol. Really great platform on those though, disperses the pressure nicely.

Squashed Triple Trap. I call them Texas toast pedals b/c they're so thick!

Original Wellgo DX knock-offs on the Huffy

I also ride these Free Agent DX knock-offs, but with removable pins.

I also like the bike.

On a bike like that, assuming the hub thread is correct for something like an ACS bmx freewheel... is there enough adjustment in the dropout?

Iíve thought about converting my big box store mtb to a big bmx, but those are 2 of my holdups.
