You can do a disk brake on the rear pinion transfer case.   Fully mechanical but you need driveshafts for it to work.   I think even steep hills youíll be fine (my Cj always is) but I do see what you want it for. 
I have one of these pinion ones on my TJ, not hooked up yet tho.

Iíd just fix the rear truss and then wheel it.   If the front ainít broke donít fix it :).

Ok.  So I guess I should update this .... fixed the front driveshaft the easy way, simply replaced the blown apart ujoint with the high clearance one.  Made a huge difference but still bound up at full axle droop.  So I jacked her up and found the point where I needed to limit the travel and used a couple lengths of chain I had and surprisingly it worked perfectly.  It's a little ghetto but it'll work till I figure out my next steps.

Wheeled it this way for this summer or really just the bbq and fall crawl since that is all I was able to make it out too.  Well after fall crawl i had had enough with no storage space.  So I built a shelve over too of my air tank with some aluminum.  Now I have plenty of storage and I even built in a small fluid container holder. 

Well took it out for an easy run this weekend at gremlin and the jeep worked awesome.  Walked up everything I tried.  But the whole day the back of the rig felt odd and was maki g more groans than normal. But I kept wheeling and nothing got worse.  When loading it onto the trailer I figured out what the feeling and noise was.   My rear truss is slowly coming off the axle.  It had always had a small crack in one of the welds on top of the pumpkin.  Well that is no longer attached and one of the other mounting points is starting to crack.  So time to redo the trusses. Going to probably redo both front and the rear this winter, time shall see but I definitely have to do the rear. 


So now the point of all this was I had a question, I also want to add some sort of parking brake.  With the 1 ton swap and running front brakes on the rear d60 there is no provision for a parking brake.  Normally it's not an issue but I don't trust the clutch to hold it on some steep hills, so I'd like something.  What do you guys run??

Also on a side note, since photobucket sucks the big one now, who are you guys using to host all your pics?

I picked up a Glock 81 knife.  Pretty nice, but for the price point, Iím not willing to bet my life on it.

Anyone going?
I think it's like $20 at the gate +$5 passenger. All different level trails and Scott told me the big hill climb will be open.
If I can get the truck going I think I might go.
