JK axle swap to TJ

Can I see what those of you who have swapped JK axles in to your TJ have done for the rear e-brake? What did you do about the tabs for the e-brake lines on the axle (they are right where I want my lower control arms to go), and what e-brake lines did you use?

I didn't ever re-connect it.

::SELLING HALF OF MY JEEP::

Rear Currie 4" coils - 190 shipped. (They've been sitting in the back of my Jeep for mock up but won't work out for me.)

Hornblasters Shocker S4 horn set with some extras $210 shipped. (It is not OBA, just an accessory for OBA)

"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.

I have an auto, but the e-brake is still nice to have.

Did you ever find a solution for the e-brake?? If not, you can use the Lokar e-brake kit for a Ford Explorer with an 8.8. You can order the kit from Summit Racing, or JEGS.

Do you have pictures of this? The TJ and JK have different methods of attachment for the e-brake by the drum.

I put JK axles in my 97 TJ and I used the factory JK lines up to the TJ junction/ adjuster.

I didn't have the cables that came with the JK axles - so the kit I purchased was for an 8.8 Ford, which hooks over a lever, but you can spread the clevis and use a 1/4" bolt for attaching.

I used the e brake cables from 35 disc brake, and used a 1/4 blot to attach to the JK 44.

I have a question: What did you guys do about the speed sensors? Did you just splice the old cables to the new speed sensors?
