Dumb.

If you're rebuilding the stock brakes, hook up the parking brake, if you're converting to disks then it gets a little more complicated, I use a hydraulic line lock in the rear brake circut for a parking brake, but it isn't as good as a mechanical p-brake....either setup works well enough for "front dig" fun with a twin stick-ed t-case.

A functional parking brake is required for many organized trail rides.
