    I was thinking that in My Hotrod I have line lock to do burnouts and to lock the front tires I thought it would be an interesting idea to put line lock in my Jeep to hold my brakes as I have a manual transmission when I'm on a tricky Rock Place

    Do you think it would work or not

    Thanks

    When I first got my CJ with an open front and rear axles, I would add a little brake when climbing the steep and slippery hills, this makes for a four wheel line lock, so it did help a little bit but not much. Also lowering the tire pressure helps also. Along with making for a more comfortable ride. A line lock would also act as a hill holder for when the engine stalled and you had to try and do a restart which did not always work.
