emergency brake cables

Just finished a 4.5 inch lift. The emergency brake adjustment is as loose as possible but cables are tight going to drum. Any suggestions on modification or maybe a replacement?

are you sure it's not just the sheath around the cable?

That is correct. It is just the sheath around the cable.

The passenger side of the Wrangler ebrake cables is longer than an XJ cable. Do some seaching on the web or take one to the parts store and compare. Buy 2 of the longer ones, they don't care which side they are installed on.

.

A recent Gallup public opinion poll shows the NRA, at 58% approval, has a higher approval rating than either Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama.

Yeah, YJ cables work fine. My stock cables/conduits were approx. 36" and acted as limiting straps. The YJ passenger side cables are around 57". They connect to the parking brake lever in the drum without any mods.

I used NAPA part #UP94371. Costs around $22 each.

To get the old one off I used a screw type hose clamp to compress the tangs (or whatever they're called) so it could slide out of the brake backing plate. I'm sure there are other methods, but this worked for me. You'll see what I'm refering to when you remove the drums.
