That's pretty old idea right? I remember when this was installed on Jims red 4x at Protrux MANY moons ago.

Certain states bitch about it not being a valid e-brake because its not directly on the axle. (Texas being one of them I have been told) Otherwise its a great system because you get a mechanical advantage since you are braking through the gear reduction of the axle.

really? didn't know that. i guess it makes sense though. a lot of components could fail after the brake, rendering it useless (if mounted on the driveline) whereas on the wheel, the brake would have to fail.

I think if I put it in 4 low I should be fine. I never wanted to put a goon handle in my truck but if I'm going to go through the effort of running brake lines into the cab I might as well go full goon, and incorporate some sort of locking pin into the handle. I need to redo a little bit of my center console anyways. I just found a BW1354 manual case.

i like the pin idea better then a separate line lock as well. as long as the pressure doesn't bleed out you should be good for launching/loading. in 4lo will help too.

Also my trolling motor has I-pilot and a remote so I might give it a try by unloading the boat remotely. I'll have to wait for a warm day though in case I have to go swimming for it lol
