Parking brake cable measurement

Can some one tell me the length of a passenger side parking brake cable on a 95 wrangler? The quadretec book shows a different cable for the 87 than 95. What I need is a longer one since I am SOA and was wondering if a 95 is longer than my 87.

I'm headed back out to my garage in a few minutes. I'll check to see what length my passenger side cable is.

BTW: Mine were custom made locally specific to my lift, but yours should be close I would think.

You're welcome.

BTW: I forgot to mention....I measured from where the cable ends & attaches to the disc backing plate, to where it ties into the T.

Just for some more comparison: My stock passenger side cable measures ~57" long, this is just the shielding where it attaches to the drum backing plate to where the cable attaches to the frame on the driver side.
