Make sure they sold you the correct cable. There are numerous different ones due to different wheel base lengths such as super cab vs regular cab.

i am a ford guy.
need 2 people.
#i push seat back-get on foor of driver's feet-flash lite-look in to the park brake control pedal assy.
(it is a self adjusting assy) there will be a lever that is visible ,probaly next to a wound spring.
#1 guy push lever up. or down whitch ever releases the adjusting asy.
AT the same time #2guy pulls on cable from control assy,as hard& as far as he can-hold it there. put a pair of 'needele nose vice grips -over a rag-over the cable-close to the hole in the frame member.
this will give you enough slack to install the cable.
