You talking about pics of how it's set up on the interior with the pedal? If so, I can go out and take a few pics to help you, but it'll take a few minutes to get em on photobucket and on here again.. but I'll help if I can.

BAM! I took these specifically so I can put my p-brake crap back together after my axle swap. but it only took me a year to finally do it! lol.....





And believe it or not...I've seen them done two different ways on otherwise stock, untouched trucks. so be aware....

pass side clips into the hanger bracket...cable stop into sheet metal U bracket thingy.

driver side up and over spring, clips into U bracket thingy then hooks onto the pbrake cable 'butt connector' about a foot forward out of camera's view. On that joint(the one out of view), I use a torch and heat up the metal then take a pair of vice grips to make sure the m-effer aint comin' out! lol.

/end confusing shane's decode of pic. lol.

I use a torch to heat it up, and two needle nose vice grips. You'll wanna 'open' the gap between the two cable stops. Opens it up just enough to get the cable stop out of it. Then to reattach, heat it back up, slide it in, heat up more, and squeeze the ever lovin' shiz out of it to make sure it don't wanna come out. lol.
