    Anyone ever put two levers in the cab connected to the e-brakes to use as turning brakes like in a sandrail??
    Of course you would have to have an open diff while using them?

    I had "cutter brakes" in a old CJ I use to have. After putting it in front wheel drive You could lock up a wheel and piviot it right around really cuts down on turing radius. Tractors have been using the concept forever

    You don't have to have an open diff if you can run front wheel drive only (twin-stick), you just can't have a spool.
