Re: E-Brake with Ford 8.8 rear end

Part #s that I ordered are 52008904 and 52008905 listed as cable-park BRA123D. Don't remember what year they are from...

Edit:
Just went and read some of my old article on the swap. They all say: Get the cables from a ZJ with rear disks...hit your local dealer and ask for that...

also read that Lokar has a kit pn# EC-81FU that works for the TJ.

Re: E-Brake with Ford 8.8 rear end

I used rear cables for a 97 ZJ Grand Cherokee, but I think 95-98 are all the same. You could also use the rear cables for a 2003 TJ with rear disc brakes. The hold down tabs would probably line up better than the ZJ cables.

Re: E-Brake with Ford 8.8 rear end

I had to take the old clips off of my stock ebrake cables and replace the zj clips to get it to line up worth a crap. I ended up getting both sides from a wrecking yard for 10$.
