    ...too much shit to list.
    Look under the truck, Drivers side right about where the door is.
    Mounted on the inside of the frame off center below the fuel filter.
    You'll see a bracket/spring setup for the ebrake. The cable that runs to the back is connected to a really long bolt (for lack of a better word). I'm not 100% certain, but I think you can just tighten that bad boy up (but not too much to cause the shoe to drag when not engaged).

    Very easy. Hit the adjustment bolt with pb blaster and tighten it up. 1 beer job.
