ebrake cables

i'm putting a set of dana 44's from a wagoneer into my yj, the only thing I haven't figured out yet is ebrake cables. What can I use that will connect properly and give me more length to help when articulating. Thanks!!

Re: ebrake cables

I'm sure something can be done. What are the specifics? I've put individual e-brakes on the scrambler with hand levers, so I'm confident we can come up with something.

Re: ebrake cables

Check with http://www.lokar.com, they may have something that will work for you, if thats too expensive theres always the junk yard or fab up route to take.

Re: ebrake cables

Fab the little sucker! I'm assuming you need extra length for the cable assembly. That's not hard to fab up. I'd go to a local junk yard and scab the cable sheeth from a Suburburn. Then cut the sheeth to length you need it and weld it onto your existing sheething. As for the cable... I make mine out of 1/8" wire cable and weld a nut on the ends and then grind down the nut. Works for me, on the cheap.

Re: ebrake cables

I ended up swapping the pass. side to the driver side for more length and then scrounged another from the junkyard to give me more length on the pass. side.
