3" Body Lift Parking Brake Extension

When I bought my truck the parking brake wasn't hooked back up because of no bracket. I'd really like to have a parking brake with my manual transmission now! lol

Does anyone have a picture of what the extension bracket looks like because I can't find one?

Thanks

I do when i'm on somewhat flat ground... but my driveway is too steep to do that lol and it would be nice to be able to warm my truck up without sitting in it!

Good news...
I was able to get everything hooked up and its now working...
What really threw me off was the fact that I used to have step bars on it and the bracket for the bars used the body mounts and I had left those brackets on it.
I had just assumed that I needed that bracket so never really looked that close! lol
