    2 nuts on the firewall (take nuts off from the engine compartment) and 1 bolt on the hinge pillar on the inside.
    Disconnect the cable on both ends, IIRC, you have to pull the entire cable back through from the inside. Disconnects from the pedal very easy, the other end of it is underneath on the driversside attached to the equalizer, with slack, it should come right out.
    Pretty stragithforward.

    I would leave it there and someday go to eldo calipers and make the e-brake work. If you're ever going to winch the tranny needs to be in nuetral with the e-brake on or you'll break a tranny.

    Well, that would work assuming you don't need to be outside the truck for anything.

    Pulling the pedal assembly was pretty easy. Certainly if I did it:o:o

    Like the others I'd suggest keeping it. You can use a long ty-wrap to keep it up & out of the way.
