Re: Ebrake Options

Re: Ebrake Options

Other than a *non*-mechanical ebrake being illegal here in the Great State, I think a bunch of folks have used them. BTW, what do you need an ebrake for? [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Not everyone has one of those trannies that does everything for you [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] I don't have "P" on my shifter.

Re: Ebrake Options

How about considering one of those transfer case mounted E-brakes sold by High Angle Driveline? They work just like the old e-brakes that were mounted on the back of the transmission.

While they don't actually brake each individual wheel, are better than nothing... and maybe a little more of a sure thing than a line lock.

Best regards

John

Re: Ebrake Options

Well, the purpose of an emergency brake would be to use it in emergencies. [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] So if by chance you lose brake pressure, you have some sort of mechanical link between you and your brakes. If you have a line lock, it'll work fine except in that all important EMERGENCY. If you lost brake pressure, a line lock would be all but useful. Just some food for thought.
