It's called a line lock and shouldn't be used as a replacement for an emergency/parking brake in my opinion. Hydraulics leak which could lead to your rig piling into another or rolling down a hill in a huge fiery crash. Just my opinion.

Thats it!!! it won't be used all the time, just on steep hills like when spectating at potato salad hill and such. I have been running around with no E-brake and have got used to finding a level place to park it, so it will only be used periodically.

You should run something mechanical, like fixing your e-brake or a t-case e-brake.

Well I got a Cj8 E-brake cable from the pedal to the equalizer and moved the bracket back so my stock lines would reach the brakes, and when I put the brake on the pedal goes down fine and gets stiff, but the brakes just dont hold. everything is hooked up fine but???
