e brake cables on model 20 swap?

got the model 20 from a 82 wagoneer under the yj and need to figure out this ebrake thing before inspection time... the wagoneer cables dont hook up to the yj, can i just get old yj cables and will they attach to the model 20 and work? what has everyone done or have experience with??

Re: e brake cables on model 20 swap?

if you look at both ends ( the ends that go inside the drum) are they the same ( im guessing htey are same or very similar)

if so then the length is the only issue right?

cut that cable and swag it or get those double nut cable tie thingys ( hope thats not too technical terminalogy for you)

Ive got the amc20 wag rear also in my CJ, but I havent hooked the parking break up yet, or the tub or the engine or the tranny.

I did the exact same swap as you, but I went SOA. Yes the factory Wrangler cables will work, but they are a little short. I am still looking for something longer, but at least they will get you inspected.
