Hello,

I need to replace the rear right parking brake cable on my 2003 quad cab 3500.
But Rock Auto lists multiple ones of differing length.

My wheelbase is 140.5", but they list the standard cab as 140.5" and the crew cab as 160.5".
No mention of quad cab.

My approximate length (measured from outside the truck) is c.134".
They list one at 135.5" and another at 138 7/16".

Can anyone tell me what the correct length of the rear right park brake cable is for a quad cab?
And / or Mopar part number?

Thanks - D

2003 Quad Cab 2-Wheel Drive

Box Length, ft. (nominal)
6' 3" bed has a wheel base of 140.5
8' bed has a wheel base of 160.5

back then they only had Standard Cabs & Quad Cabs


in 2006 Dodge Ram Mega Cab is the 160.5-inch wheelbase Ram 2500 long box model. Engineers re-proportioned the cab and the pickup box by replacing the eight-foot long box with the Ram 2500's six-foot, three-inch box, providing an additional 20 inches for the cab. The result is a cab length of 111.1 inches


The first Crew Cab came out in 2009

Thanks GTyankee,


The chronology of Ram cab development puts new light on my understanding!


BTW your signature says you have a CB radio.
Where have to installed it?
I want to do the same, but can't see anywhere to mount a unit.


Thanks - D
