In my van, there's a light green wire under the driver's step well cover that goes hot with a press of the brake pedal. I was able to confirm the wire but I never ran it to the tail lights to make them work properly. That was seven years ago so I guess it didn't matter enough to me. ;)

well finally something plug and play, this caught me by surprise. the e brake 2010 e250 pedal assembly and front cable, 1995 e250 intermediate cable and equalizer, 2003 f350 left and right cables to the diff. this is the winning combo. so happy this all worked. this is something i researched putting ends on cables shortening methods. fitting had never crossed my mind. also got the rear shocks in
