    Someone suggest a line lock
    not exactly an ebrake since it's still relying on hydraulics but that might be a good solution if I don't want to lose my lever.

    pinion brake. if you have a flange on your pinion its ez . the only time it doesn't work is if you break your axles. only have to worry about one cable and one caliper.

    As much as I like that idea, I don't think that will work with my torque arm

    does your torque arm bolt to the trans or the tunnel? rotor at trans like HD trucks, maybe?

    I like E-Brakes. The pin that holds an automatic in park is pretty small. Makes me nervous

    I'll ask CA if they can integrate the electric or cable driven ebrake in their design
    120-15687 for electronic
    120-12069 for cable driven (preferred)
    If not I'll see if they'll give me the strange ends
    worst case, I just get it directly from strange
