How to remove e-brake???

Well I guess the first question is do I have to remove the emergency brake to get the body off?

If so, how in the heck do I do it?

Yes, you do. I just did it with my CJ. If you look underneath, you'll see where the e-brake cable is connected to the e-brake assembly. It was easier for me to take the whole e-brake assembly off and then disconnect the cable.

I unhooked the cable underneath where it splits and then used vice grips to get enough slack to pull the cable out of the groove of the pedal assembly.

If it's the style I am thinking of, you can fully depress the pedal (tell it sad stories) then clamp the cable with vise grips, release the pedal and it will move back free of the cable. This will allow enough slack to work it out of the hook, then release the vise grips and slide the cable out the back. The challenge is putting it back in, I have been successful with sliding it in the back of the pedal assembly, take one pair of vise grips and clamp it at the end of the cable pull it as far as you can and then use another pair of vise grips to clamp it at the base to keep it from moving back, remove the first pair of vise grips and return it to the hook in the pedal.

If it is a different style, I just wasted your time. Post a picture if you can.

Careful your character's showing

I just backed the nuts all the way off the cable under the body. The cable came out through the frame and is still attached to my body.
