OK So I'm running the D70 with factory rear disc brakes AND it has a parking brake inside the rotor. Where should i look for a pair of cables that I can source to run up the lower links to a linkage setup to use the parking brake if needed OR should i just install a line lock for that just incase.

You might be able to run 2 passenger side cables, they are longer than the D side ones. That would let you have a little freedom on mounting the 2-1 bar. Line lock would be much simpler and let you close off the rear brakes if you lost a line.

My friend with a 2nd gen Tacoma ran the factory brake cables down the lower links so I should be able to do the same thing on this but ill also install a line lock for front and rear incase I brake a line I can close it off.

i have been using a line lock for years on the rear of my truck. been working good. i have notice that when i lock it after a good run and they are hot, it starts to slip as it cools. i did have a time or 2 when it gave me some crap to un-lock. on a incline, i will still look for a rock for a back up.
