ECGS E-brake cable routing

I've installed my East Coast Gear Supply 8.8 and got my Jeep running but I can't figure out how to run these e-brake cables properly. I suppose its possible I just need to adjust it further but when I tighten the nut on the tensioner is becomes clear that one side is tighter than the other... Any chance someone has a picture they could show me that would help make sure I have these cables routed properly with the correct brackets on each side?

Any other way to adjust the e-brake besides tightening the tensioner under the vehicle?

The e-brakes are not grabbing at all right now.

You should only adjust the tensioner nut enough to take the slack out of the cables. Further adjusting is done at the shoes. They work just like drum brakes. Pop the rubber dust plug off the backside of the brakes and adjust the start wheel.
