The stock 404 rear axle is equipped with a parking brake!

Ya what "Wolfgang" said!

Both the front and rear axles also have locking diffs. (Not to confuse the two).

Later.

If you are going to use 2 fronts you will be out of luck onthe parking brake thing. I would use a driveline brake like Land Rovers or like the disk available at all-pro offroad

Parking Break on front axle

You can put the rear brake parts on the steering axle. So you can go with a parking brake on the steering axle.

parking brake all 4 wheels

Interesting idea. I have never though about that. I am sure you are correct.

So does that mean that you could in theory have 4 wheel parking brakes? Or set up the brakes individually as cutting brakes?

Now that's very interesting..... Cutting brakes on a mog.

A Dukes of Hazard Mog.

So when would cutting brakes be an advantage, esp. on the front axle?

I have absolutely no idea, but i am sure I could find a use....4ws and 4wcb would be interesting.


I can see a use for 4 wheel parking brakes on the trail though.

I've got 'em on the Blazer, not hydraulic and not mechanical. I've used them to pivot the front end around even quicker to miss trees and avoid backing up. More useful in competitions than regular trail driving, IMHO.

hmmmmm backing up to get around things in a big camper Mog may not be easer than cutting brakes.. course that kinda weight and the forces applied when using a cutting brake may not be good either........ hmmmmmm.

looking forward to more discussion

Whoops! Typo! They are hydraulic. Just a little electric solenoid that can close off the brake line to keep a brake engaged.
