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.
