    I am getting down to sorting out the parking brakes on my project. Was going to run caddy calipers with ebrake but have heard too many bad things about them. I looked at the bolt on NP205 ebrake disc, but was told it would not hold on a very steep grade. I will have over 115 to gearing, I think it probably would in low, low. Bottom line, I need something that works. Can the caddy calipers be modified to work better? Anyone have any ideas or solutions?

    Use the Caddy calipers and add a Mico-Lock to your braking system.
