Do you know what the "e" in e-brake stands for? I suppose if you loose your brakes coming down a hill you just jam it in park right? Let me know how that works out.

E=Emergency, the e-brake is also commonly refered to as the parking brake. And no you don't just jam it in park, because if you do you will shear the parking pin basically putting you in neutral, and if you survive you will have to take the transmission apart to fix the parking pin. Driving with out a e-brake is extremely dangerous and not recommended, not to mention the liability of not having one. It provides a mechanical link to you brakes if your hydraulic brake system fails.

I don't have ABS, So I just cut the wires off, I left the sensor in so it would plug the hole.

When I'm coming down hills I'm in low gear and 1 anyways. Engine braking is a wonderful thing.

As for the speed sensors, I don't have ABS. I cut the wires off. If you take the plug out, mud and **** will get inside.

Rear Currie 4" coils - 190 shipped. (They've been sitting in the back of my Jeep for mock up but won't work out for me.)

Hornblasters Shocker S4 horn set with some extras $210 shipped. (It is not OBA, just an accessory for OBA)

"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.

I thought you could buy JK axles made for TJ straight from Chrysler now?

You can, but they are more expensive, have a 5x4.5 bolt pattern, and are more narrow. Finding JK take-offs, or someones project crate axles like I got, work out much better. Well, they did for me at least.

I know. It's super funny when you have an auto and are relying on "park" and the transfer case pops out of 4low into neutral like happens ALL THE TIME on TJs and LJs!

A buddy broke a ba joint on a ledge and lost the wheel while being lowered down a hill. He lost the knuckle and caliper and all and subsequently the brake line and brakes. E brake was all he had, and a it did was slow him down. Hate to image what would have happened if he would have gone down full out. Throwing it in park would have just made it skip off the pawl, and if it would have grabbed it would have broke the tranny or flipped the Jeep backwards.
