    Back when I had a e-brake....BLING:D
    Only got around to hooking up that one wheel but that one wheel alone held my truck VERY well on a incline.

    Well I did get the caliper mounted up, but I have yet to hook up the e-brake. I cut off one of the stops off so I could run the e-brake lever more vertical in relation to the caliper. This lets me put the e-brake mechanism on top of the axle. Thanks for the help guys.

    sorry to dig up an old post, but i was just wondering if any one could add to this? I'm also getting ready to do the E-brake setup & just wanted some more pics.

    Thanks

    has anyone ever had a problem with them getting caught up on the rocks? I'm thinking i could weld a plate coming out from the bottom of the bracket at a 90* angle. about 2" wide & the length of the bracket.

    Haha,

    No problem. I love writing up about my truck, not for the praise, but because it's helping so many of my fellow wheeler's out! I'm always ready to lend a hand and if my post helps even one person, then I feel I've accomplished my mission in life. I like to make at least one person laugh a day, even if it's at myself.

    Enjoy!

    Manny
