I need a longer e-brake cables for my YJ, SOA, waggy d44, with the wheel base extended 2" in the rear. Anyone know of a cable from another make/model that will work?

i was able to use my existing ones when i went to XJ springs on my old YJ. I just rerouted them and tweaked the brackets and hangers that hole the e-brake cables. maybe this will work for you as well. Hillbilly

Thanks - I may be able to reroute the passenger side but the driver side won't reach even just sitting still. With flex I think it'll need to be ~8 inches longer

I used one of the original ones and one from a mid eighties dodge pickup. I still had to make a little spacer for it where the two join at the main cable.

One should be longer then the other, use two of those. I have a CJ that was SOA on waggys, and ended up using 2 pass sides. I have a YJ sitting there too, but its stock, haven't looked so Im not sure it it will work, but you might see if it could.

UMMM....... how about the ones from an XJ.

waggys don't run long side spring forward and have 6" lift from a spring over :flipoff2:

Think about what you are suggesting before you post

I am running two passenger side stock cables on my YJ with a 14bolt. I actually have them hooked up to cadi disc calipers, they are pretty versital.

But they are a lot longer than a YJ.

I have 7.5" of lift and they work fine for me thanks.

Shit the long side one off the YJ will work on the driver side, then get the pass side off of the XJ and put it on the pass side of the YJ.

?? XJ's are longer, so they may work. I am going through something similar, have to adapt mine for the 14 bolt. I may do it similar to a TJ, on the rear center of tub, so just need to rig things up.
