Emergency Brake Cable Routing Pictures

Anyone have a picture of how the emergancy brake cables are routed after the equalizer?

The previous owner replaced the tub and didn't reconnect the brake cables, so the passenger side is held up by a piece of sting and the driver side was rubbing against the muffler and melted the protective covering.

Thanks.

Both sides are held on by clips. You can probobly find them at any hardware store.

I have that diagram, but I was looking for an actual picture to get a relative idea of where they are attached on the Jeep.

Additionally, the equalizer in the diagram appears to have the cable from the pedal centered in the equalizer, where as mine is off-centered. Anyone know which cable attaches to the longer end of the equalizer?

Not sure if I have a picture or not but I just looked 2 nights ago because I just picked up 2 new ones. Theres a triangular bracket that sticks out from the frame, behind where the equalizer will be. The bottom hole is for the short drivers side cable. The longer one goes in the top hole and goes over to the other side towards the front of the bed. Theres a bracket (which may be rusted off) that comes off the bottom of the bed riser about 2-3 inches and holds the cable at that point (keeps it above the driveshaft), then it continues over and down to the pass. side wheel.

edit: Here's a pic. You can see the rusted off bracket on the cable still.
