Or you can get another passenger side cable, and it'll be a bit too long, but you can just tie it up outta the way.

Re: e-brake question with SOA..

i don't run e-brake cables (i can't i made my own rear disc's with calipers for a front end). i use a mico lever lock. there are all types of devices that will hydraulicly hold your brakes and you don't have to worry about having those cables.

Brian,
I like the Idea of those little lever locks that hydraulically hold the brakes...but have you ever had any problems with it...i dont know if i could really TRUST one of those...guess its just fear of something i dont know much about....

Re: e-brake question with SOA..

never had any problems with it but they are hydraulic and i guess if your brake system wan't up to par then it could cuase a problem. lever locks are not for long term use. you wouldn't want to leave it set over night because great changes in outside temp will cause pressure build up and maybe even brake something. i run a manual tranny so i use it as my e-brake for every day just parking and what not but if the jeep is running or if i'm off road i use the leverlock and i like it.
