You don't need a line lock, you need off-road driving technique help.

1) If the motor is off, just start the Jeep motor with the clutch engaged.

2) If the motor is on, when in low gear and low range (especially if you have a 4:1 t-case), you don't need to use the gas pedal. With a foot on the brake, ease up on the clutch. There is a cross over point when the clutch + idling engine just starts to move the Jeep (you can tell by the motor starting to load up). At that point, just let off on the brake and you will start idling uphill. You probably don't even need the gas pedal, but you then have plenty of time to move your right foot to the gas.

3) If that all doesn't work, maybe because you have 3.07 gears with 35" tires and a stock 2.7 t-case ratio, then spend your money on improving the poor gearing situation.

I have 4.56 gears, I know how to drive offroad.
I was just saying a hand throttle works well when you are stopped in a uphill situation.
My rear line lock is used as a parking brake and has worked well for 10 years or more but I do like your setup.
Was it a kit?

I would think this would reduce the pressure to the front brakes...


This is what I did to my YJ. Pressure should no be affected.
I did mine with manual valves in the cab on the dash.
1 for the front brakes and 1 for the rears.

So are either you or JeeperDon going to tell us whether this is a kit or not?
Or would you both rather show us pictures of your setup?

The rotor kit needs fab work to get it to mount to whatever SYE or aftermarket tcase you may have. It only works with a plate type output flange, not the yoke type. I welded a bracket to the inside of the frame to hold an overhead garage door pulley, which turns the OEM parking brake cable 90 to operate the rotor brake. It's been in service for me for 8+ years now.
