    I have a dana 44 centered from a 75ish cj that was converted to disc. its missing the ebrake cable for the left rear. I believe its stock and not part of the disc conversion.

    Jeep number 999980 if you have what you say you have.
    Left or right same number.
    Should be readily available Crown, etc.

    Not sure what part number you found, but I have a 1976 with a 75 dana 44. the left and right are different lengths. I not sure if they used the ones off the Model 20 or what...just one is missing.

    I went by what you stated in your opening post.
    72-75 CJ5 would use those cables, equal in length, snaping into backing plate.

    A 76 CJ5 from the factory would have a drivers cable length of 32-3/4" in length; the cable bolts to the back plate.
    The passenger side is longer at 61" according to the book.
    Left J5355325
    Right J5355324

    Mid 78 the cables would snap into the backing plate.

    If your set-up isn't stock (disc brakes), then who knows what you have. Mix and match.

    Thanks....you prompted me to crawl underneath and see exactly. Turns out the cables are the stock 76 and they never hooked them up, because you're right about the two different styles. These had the two bolt flange and the brakes are set up for push in "bendix" style. So I will need to order or hit the wrecking yards and find some the closest length possible. I've done a lot of brakes and it seems the bendix style is common, so I shouldn't have any problem...I want to use the 76 ebrake setup. If all else fails..line lock.
