    What year 14 FF will bolt right in my 86 Jimmy with e-brake cables and all? I know the older ones used different cables, and I want one that will go in no problem. I can always move the perches, but dont want to mess with cables.

    Thanks Dan

    I used one out of a mid 80's 1 ton and the e brake cables worked fine. I just had to move the spring perch and shock mounts.

    Look for '83 and newer axles. They have the same e-brake cables as your '86.
    If you go '82 or older, the cables are different.

    The 14 is the easy part. It's the damn 60 that seems to be the problem.

    It's really not hard at all to get the e-brakes to work from the older trucks. I got a 14b ff from a 73 2wd 3/4 ton pickup and it's worked perfectly for about 10 months now.

    Well I thought the older axles used different style e-brake cables than the mid 80s trucks, so I just wanted to get one that bolts in.

    Well........the older ones are different, but "technically" they are still bolted on. I did no welding and had to make no custom brackets. I just used the trucks cables with the axles mounts and combined them. If you do happen to get an older one, let me know and I'll explain exactly what I did.
