    Stephen, where are the pics everyone is talking about? I would like to see pics of the interior, I've looked on your website and didn't see any. I also plan on putting cutting brakes on my Blazer, how do you like them? Jon

    Glad someone came up with some pics, I need to finish my pics and get them up.
    Anyway, the cutting brakes are nice for really tight stuff. They work really well for weaving around trees. Really, I haven't used them that much so far, but there have been places I REALLY wish that I had them and didn't. They're just another tool in the box to get you through more situations. I have the levers so I can modulate them a little, but you might consider using e-brake calipers with individual controls, or just putting a line lock in each rear brake. Either way would do it. I've also heard of guys that just use front wheel drive and lock up both rears. But that can't work as well as locking one. Ideally, with an ARB, you could just lock up one rear tire, and actually provide some power with the other rear, at least a little. They might also give you some neat capabilities with an open rear diff.
