My truck is an old (1971) Full Size jeep pickup. I am in the process of putting in running gear from an m715 jeep.

Anyway, I was wondering how you guys would reccomend that I put an emergency brake in the truck. I cannot use the traditional ebrake on the drum because such a thing does not exist for these axles.

I am thinking about putting one on the driveline, but I was wondering if that would put any extra stress on the dana 20 transfer case yoke.

What is the best way to install one on the driveline if that is the best way to go? I know very little about this, so any information would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Call High Angle Driveline (530)877-2875

Jess is making parking brakes for certain applications as a bolt on kit. I don't know if he has one for the D20 tcase yet, but he would probably be willing to sell you the components and you could build the backing plate/bracket.

The problem with the driveline e brakes, and why they are not legal in some places, is that if you lose a driveshaft you have no ebrake. Same deal with line locks if you lose regular brakes, line locks won't help ya. Just something to think about.

Gee then I guess my Land Rover is not legal! Comes stock with a drive-line brake! :rolleyes:

Even if it is not legal, it doesn't really matter, there are so many other things that target me for a ticket that an ebrake is the least of my worries.

The main thing I want is just something to keep me from rolling back on a hill, or to keep my truck still in the event that I get stuck. (It sucks having someone hold the brake while you get out of the truck)

Thanks for the responses,

What calipers and rotors are people using for this? Sources? I'm thinking of fabbing one for my rig.
