Cutting Brake Placement, left or right??
 
I moved this from the jeep board.

I'm building a new rig with an auto tranny and a stock cj column shifter. Got a new cj tub with a full cage and PRP seats. Space is tight up front but I want to make sure that I get the placement of the cutting brakes right. I've got two of the CNC dual cylinder sets. I've seen many of these setups placed between the two front seats and I've seen others on the left side of the driver's seat. I would think the best placement would be on the left side of the drivers seat so your right hand could get to the column shifter if needed while using the cutting brakes. I'm probably over analyzing this for the actual times I will use these brakes but does it really make a difference???

Thanks,

scott

I think its just personal preference (and where you have the room for them)...I put mine on the left side of the driver seat...they are out of the way but still convenient to use...

I'm sure its just personal prefrance, as in most rigs it would be tough to shift/steer/brake all at the same time and if you really think about it why would you need to?

I've seen more placed on the left but you have to be careful to make sure you can get in and out of your seat without them being in the way all the time.
That said, Dustin had a great piece of advice on thier plumbing ...
His (Becca's ?) is set up to apply braking when moving the levers FORWARD and claims this is by far the most ergonomic way to operate them.
