Does your truck have the cables with the wire wrapped around the outside? If so, and you have a little extra length to the cable, you can unwind some of the outside wire and re-make the end with some needle nose pliers(I am assuming it broke near the end where it hooks up to the control lever). I have never worked on that year truck, but have worked on some other vehicles where I have saved the cable this way.
