I did this last year. Do not buy after market parts as they have plastic ends and are universal in fit, meaning they are longer than the OEM part. The longer cable made the accelerator very stiff. It was hard to hold the pedal down driving any distance. Got the right OEM part from the local ford dealer. Worked like a champ. Also the plastic end that snaps to the ip end broke when installing the after market cable. Regardless of cost get the right OEM parts for this.

Great write up!

Just installed the Pioneer cable from autozone (part#CA-8683 ) under $20 perfect fit and works perfectly on my 1993 7.3 ID crew cab dually.
My recommendation don't waste your money letting Ford rape you for $110... even the guy at the Ford parts counter rolled his eyes and thought it was a rip off.
