Buy some cable clamps and wrap your existing cables around the levers, cable clamp it and call it a day.

I'll see if I can find you some pics.

It would be best to run your cable around a trimed thimble and use a cable clamp. Home depot has stainless 1/4 inch clamps that come two clamps and one thimbal. Leave your calipers off and loosen your e brake shoes to gain all the slack you can for fitment then adj. as necessary.

I have been slammed before but I will post this again. I tried using the factroy ones from the XJ and also the cables from the Ford explorer. It was a huge P.I.T.A. for me. I decided to go with the M.O.R.E. cables and they are AWSOME. Nice high quality thick cable that worked flawless right out of the box.

Lokar makes a connector for the Explorer set up that can be modified to work with the XJ's cables.
