    I think he wants to do some burnouts at the track to warm up his mud tires for quicker ETAs with the, well known for its speed and power, 6.2. :D :D

    then no, it wont work. the first time you leave it engaged for any period of time, it will kill the battery.

    you've got a 205, now its time to call Jesse. :deal:

    I would try to find one that uses double-flare fittings (like on a normal brake line) instead of NPT fittings.

    Maybe even a manual valve instead of an electric one.
    Less complicated=fewer things to go wrong.
    Cheaper, too.

    I've seen them before but I can't seem to find them now. :doah:

    edit: MICO makes manual locks but they're more spendy than the electrics.
    edit2: have you thought about fixing the regular mechanical e-brake the vehicle came with?

    cables hanging under the vehicle are bad, m'kay? plus, the line lock as an ebrake for the trail would open him up to running discs on his 14FF using standard 3/4 ton calipers without worries. i'll agree with him, that in a parking situation, the 465 should do just fine without an ebrake.

    Push brake pedal.

    Engage line lock.

    Line Lock holds pressure to brakes.

    Exit vehicle and see how deep the mud/water really is.

    Re-enter vehicle.

    Push brake pedal.

    Disengage line lock.

    Put vehicle in gear (forward or reverse, depending on how deep the mud was).

    Continue on!

    I'll buy that.

    line lock only keeps the front brakes engaged making burnouts a possibilty too! :wink1:

    You could also put it on the rears if you're only using it for a parking brake.

    That would also give the benefit of being able to use it as a cutting brake.

    define cutting brake

    Technically, you'd need two line locks for a genuine cutting brake but the purpose of one is to provide the driver the option of locking either the left rear wheel or the right rear wheel to help improve the vehicles cornering ability.

    edit: Of course, there are other things to consider, as well. If you don't have open diffs, it would also require either a NP203 full-time t-case or a twin-sticked case that you can put the rear in neutral.

    line locks cannot be used as a cutting brake. you'll need a cutting brake to work as a cutting brake.

    they're commonly found on dune buggies for steering in wheels up situations.
