You mean CJs have a parking brake?

Well no stock CJs with rear drum brakes don't really have a parking/emergency brake, none what so ever if the nose is higher than it's gas tank. Likely that the adjusters are mucked up and you don't have any back brakes at all, or the cables are full of crud and hanging up providing some serious wear to the shoes that dont's adjust but making the axle and wheel bearing hot......... damn, I'll stop this rant.
But if you do the rear disc with cable parking/emergency brake it will sit right where you put it until you come back. I find it much better than Jeep chasing, or board / brick / block / tree limb tossing in front of a tire. Actually it's a wonderful thing - rates close to sliced bread. Technology has come a long way since the CJs were designed and it's a good thing!!!
I have been told that the SSB rear disc kit is based on Caddy parts (caliper anyway)... don't know how to prove that or even where I got that idea. That's what's on my CJ7 and I'm not going back because it's just too good to be true.
Here's a couple of pics from when I did the SSB install a couple of years ago.
Note the parking / emergency brake cables were not hooked up yet..... the axle was not even under the Jeep at the time of the pics.
Not sure if this helps any but I'm having fun [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]
