Stiff Gas Pedal

Hey guys, my V8 Jeep has been driving great. However getting it back from a detailer today, the gas pedal is really stiff. Can somebody post a picture of the throttle cable in the engine bay so I can make sure mine is routed correctly?

Also, has anyone had this problem before? I read that I can also check for adjustment:

I think the detailer must have driven it a little... there is are 4 extra miles on the odometer and extra gas in the tank. Thoughts?

Nevermind, found a picture via google:

My throttle cable was sitting on top of the rotating black piece instead of under as shown in the pic. I moved it back under and it is fine now, thanks.

Dude, first time you check oil and pull the dipstick out across that positive bat. terminal and do some welding you'll wish there were an rubber insulator over it, and that optima battery will make a good weld!
