8.8 Ford rear in YJ Ebrake Cable ?

I was instaling my E-Brake cables from M.O.R.E. in my 89 YJ today with ford 8.8 rear. Their website says to call if jeep is 87-90, when I called the "tech guy" they transfered me to stated all the 8.8 yj ebrake cables are identical and sent me part # EB-1 .

From the housing end to the crimped on cable end the cables they sent me are 4" longer than the original jeep cables. What do i need to do for E brake cables in my jeep. I was really sold on the plug and play aspect of these cables.

Here is a pic, what should I do?

I installed their cables on my 89 and they work awesome.
The tech guy I talked to said there are two choices and if the ones they sent me didn't work to call and they would send the other ones.
I'm sure if you call them they will make it right.
I am very happy with mine. It makes a very sanitary factory like setup.

Planing to call in the morning, I figured there must be a different cable or they wouldnt specify that you call before ordering but the fellow was so absolute that they only stocked one cable for all YJ. Would be nice if they would list both on the site and mention the difference to save customers time and expense of sending the wrong cable back, would only take 10 seconds with a tape measure to figure out which one is needed.

They are very nice looking , very excited to get the right ones for my Jeep. Thanks

I used their cables in my 93 with an 8.8 and I have NO e-brake at all. It's useless and has been so for years. I have tried every adjustment I can think of. I'm glad someones worked.

Spoke with Steve at M.O.R.E. today, super nice guy. Sent proper cables out today along with return shipping label for the other ones.

That would work also, the proper part # for the cables with shorter ends is EB-3

I hope you don't figure out what I did, that the cute little parking brake shoes in the microscopic rotor 'drum' can't hold crap with any decent sized Jeep tire. I went with this t-case kit from Tom Wood. A garage door pulley on a bracket welded to the frame turns the standard parking brake pedal cable 90 to go to the t-case tail area.

[Edit: This disc's force also gets amped up by the axle ratio, in my case 4.88 times stronger than it already looks to have.]
