How many people are running a line lock for there parking brake? How well does it hold? Any opinions?
Note to all: you want "down is off" on a line lock so gravity can't accidentally engage it for you. At least that was our reasoning when we installed them on dump trucks and crane trucks in one of my other lives.Felix said:"are you sure up is off on that line lock?"
woody said:mine is line-locked in the rear, since I can set the dana 300 t-case to front-wheel-only, lock the rear, and use it to "spin" around obstacles....
in 4wd, locking even a single wheel will effectively lock them all as the load transfers thru the drivetrain...IMO, since the rear axle is stronger than the front (no birfs), I'd install it on the rear....
