    With all the stuff all of you guys & gals have done there has to be someone who has done this.
    I want to put one in because it will work on all 4 wheels and I don't trust just puting it in park (I might also do a NV4500 conversion). I don't think it should be that hard to do on a fixed yoke np205. I'm thinking a Wilwood mechanical calaper, a plate steel disc, caliper mounting bracket, and cable mods. I did some searching and found they used to be on Jeeps, some motor homes have them, Highangle driveline is looking into making a kit.

    What do you think?

    When I installed my TSM kit on 10 bolt a few years ago they had some other options in a cataloq they sent me of kits that they had and some were kits for driveshaft brakes. What you are talking about is like the old HMMWV.

    If you ain't hurt, you ain't playin' hard enough.

    With a locker what will you do about the slack in the locker? Even with the brake set you could roll the truck back and forth probably 8".

    I thought I was wrong once,
    but I was mistaken

    Hum...I never thought about that. I could just go with a spool than (I think I would rather have a spool anyways). The only prob I could see with the slack is in a parking lot where it could roll into another car (my blazer rarely sees parking lots).
