4 wheel line lock?

Looking to have the ability to lock all 4 wheels so that I don't have to be standing on the brakes when winching someone out, or just being an anchor point.

And CHEAP!

If I'm being the anchor it is generally because nothing else around is suitable.
Also less work to just lock the brakes up over getting straps out, hooking up, taking up the slack and then setting up the winch.

Wheel chocks........?

I get what you're saying but sometimes you have to anchor yourself in order to be a solid anchor.

Right, but like yesterday there were 4 occasions where I just needed to sit inside on my brake pedal. Happens all the time really.

I'd rather not have to sit there holding my brakes if possible.


Is there somewhere I could install a standard line lock and get all 4 wheels to lock?

If there is I'd be interested as well - make for an awesome parking brake when in the mountains.

That too.

I guess could just install two line locks, but that is twice as much as I want to spend, lol.

Scotch blocks.

Used them on my wreckers, including a heavy duty one, for years.

Still putting stress on that little tiny parking pin though.

Slide your seat all the way back, measure from the front of seat to the brake pedal and cut a 2x4 to that length. Stick it on the pedal and slide the seat forward. I use that trick on my diesel in the winter as a cheap high idle switch

I was thinking a high tech stick. Wasn't sure it if it would be hard on the booster or not though.

I don't mind spending money, but didn't want to spend 200 bucks to get two line lock kits, was hoping there was a way to get away with just one line lock kit.

No, you're not if you use them properly. You winch yourself up on to them with the chains looped correctly so the centerline of your axle is over the digging part of the block. More pull and the block bites more and more.

I made a set of spades for our heavy wrecker but you need a jockstrap to lift them.

I see what you are saying. Still more setup than pushing a button though, even though it would probably be better.
