Line Lock Location

Quick question:

I am going to install a line lock for my rear brakes this week. All the pics I have seen have it/them mounted at the rear axle.

Is there any reason not to mount it at the master cylinder? Seems it would be easier to access it there and better loc to run the wires from.

Thoughts? Comments?

Ok, right after I posted this, I had a thought (strange, but true).

Is it because mounting it at the MC is before the prop valve?

I agree with the prop valve issue. Mount it after that. If your going electric, mount the release button on the side of your stick shift. That way it's close in case your using it for offroad and have to throw the stick quick.

Re: Line Lock Location

I've had one on my 82 CJ-7 for 10 years now and really like it. It is plumbed between the master cylinder and the front brakes. I did it this way so I could lock front and rear (emergency) brakes. The switch is part of the Hurst T-handle and is very handy:
