You have to take the locker out to get the driver's side axle out.

What have you done with the e-brake? Does the stock XJ cable work?

The stock XJ cable will work with a few modifications. I am still working on the best way to do it. I'll take a picture of the parking brake lever so you can see how it will need to attach.

In stock form, the cable attaches to the shoe inside the drum, with this form it will attach on the outside. The cable fits where it should, it is just a matter of attaching the cable to the hook.
