Just put a 4" bds lift on my cj, anyone know what to do about getting the emergency break to fit. Do I need to get some of extensions like I had to the rest of the way around, or should I just cut the bracket and move it back some.

Get a piece of threaded rod the same size as the thread rod on your adjuster where the two cables hook together. alos get a ... what do you call it? don't recall, maybe someone knows and can chime in on this. but it's like a long nut. long enough to hold each piece of threaded rod, one coing out each end. Basically to lengthen that piece. You may also need to move your brackets for the brake cable back some. I'll see if I can make a diagram of this. pictures work better for me.

here.. like this

I am a little confused as to why you are having a problem.
Usually with a CJ and 4" or less of suspension lift, your rear cables should still work.

The relationship between the front cable and the rear doesn't change with a suspension lift.

If you are having a problem, you will need either longer rear cables, or to move your rear cable mounting points back and or down.
If you do move them, then you may have to extend the front cable as per Brent's pic above.

My driver's side cable didn't reach after the 4" lift either. I still don't have an ebrake.

Can I use that diagram on my website?
If so, what do you want to be used as a credit to you?

I'd just get rid of the whole "do-hickey" all together if it's a PITA. I had my e-brake pop out twice before my axel conversion. Thank god my motor was off and in gear, but if it was on an incline and I got out...i would have been SOL. So, I cut the ebrake cable on my new axel (although I thought I was going to regret it at first not having an ebrake)and don't even notice it being gone now.
