I've searched and found many different solutions but.... What's the easiest way to do this?
Essentially I have the ball end of the factory cables and the arms on the calipers. I have nothing in between.

find some used TJ parking brake cables and use cable clamps

I finally managed to find a clear pic of it. I was definitely overthinking it, lol.

I just hope I can get the equalizer bracket too. Mine's gone.

I managed to find (2) new cables for $35 shipped and luckily the equalizer plate was in the box crap that I got with it. Crisis averted.

Hey...this came up in my google search! Were you able to get them working or did you need the ZJ cables?

I used '95 ZJ cables.

Here is a good write up with P/N for the ZJ brake cables.

Something alse to consider is using some TJ Dana 44/Rubicon cables, I'll gladly take pictures of mine for you but, I think they are the same as the 8.8...Cast loop that hooks over the lever sticking out the backing plate.

Link for picture of cable from Rock Auto.com, looks a possible winner, cheap too. Just watch if you order they have the drum/disc brake stuff intermingled.
