Well I think I have figured it out after much searching and asking.

I ended up needing new everything except the actual pedal assembly, and my "eaqualizer bracket" as they call it was missing the threaded screw on the end, but wasn't all bent up so I thought it was good.

So, I go to Napa because they can actually order ALL the cables I need, the first set, the front cable was incorrect, as was the driver side rear. I assumed the passenger rear would also be incorrect, more on that later.

So they ordered cables for a 1/2 ton. Front cable fit great, as did the drivers side rear, this passenger rear didn't have that threaded rod on it and was that pressed block end and I was racking my brain trying to figure out how it attached or which one was the correct one. Turns out the first Pass/rear cable was the correct one in the first place after I had found a picture of the Equalizer bracket (and the threaded end which wasn't on mine) basically by mistake browsing through photo's trying to figure stuff out.

As of right now I think I have it right, it kinda works, but I have more adjustment left to it. I'm hoping over the weekend I can tighten things up and it'll work as it should.

I know I should get a manual on this, but money is tight and I need to cut where I can, I had assumed I was mechanically inclined enough to figure it all out on my own. All of this work got kicked off because it popped a brake line. I can deal with some other issues on the truck, but I don't want to go through that again.
