Heres a perfectly assinine discovery. Extended cab vs. Reg cab parking brake cables are different AT THE AXLE. Obviously the mid frame cable needs to be longer due to the extended cab, but whats the point of making them all different? The axle end cables are about 4 inches TOO LONG from the reg cab.
I would just replace both cables, but the pass side one is special order and wouldn't be in for 4-5 days. Fortunately they can get me the drivers side one by tomorrow (the one from my srw axle was busted)
I think I can reuse my Pass side one. It's crusty but still works.
