Re: XJ disc brake swap

Crown DBC-06 and DBC-07 are bolt in disc brake parking brake cables for the 97+.

I haven't done a pre 97 since before those were available do have an answer.

Re: XJ disc brake swap

I bought the MORE cables for the 8.8 swap. They work perfectly with the TJ disk brakes.

I have seen guys get creative with getting the parking brake cables on. I just want to hook them up and call it a day. Couple guys have posted parts that are just plug and play like you did. I will probably do a KJ disc swap if I ever do. Why I was curious about which way you went. To be frank not even sure if it makes a difference.

Re: XJ disc brake swap

I went with the Flop Shop adapter solution. Cheap and easy. (It did require a little filing to open up the slots in the adapter a bit to be able to fit the cable.) It works just fine, but I sometimes think I may “upgrade” the setup with new cables down the road and ditch the adapters. But, realistically, I’ll probably never bother to do it.

Something like that I think I would be alright with. It is where the guys use the cable u-bolt to make a loop around the lever I do not want to do.

That's a pretty clever idea... never say that before. Only the U bolt type modification of the standard break cables. I didn't like that idea so it took me a while to just swap in new cables that fit properly. I almost never use my Safety Break ... but it's nice to now have one that works properly.
