Can anyone help me tighten the e-brake cable? Every time I go wheeling lately in mud and sand, I have no e-brake anymore. Took it to the dealer last time and six hours and $500 bucks later they had cleaned out the drums. The problem is that this is going to keep happening and I'm not going to have them cleaned out again. Isn't there some way to tighten the cable?

Sounds good. Is the nut that adjusts tension easy to locate/identify? Thanks.
Though I never have seen the setup on the FJC I would think there should be 1 or 2 cables coming up through the floor with studs on the end that go through the handle with nuts on the end. After you tighten them a few turns I would check the rear wheels to make sure there's no drag with the hand brake off.
