I have both, manual line lock on the front (for winching and to help with the three footing on steep spots) and a cutting brake for the rear.

You're just mad because Free Willy doesn't know that braking one side of a locked or welded axle defeats the purpose of braking one side.

If you have a welded spooled rear diff you don't need farking shit.

A cutting brake by design will brake one wheel or the other. Thus "cutting" your turning radius, or "cutting" power to one wheel, or "cutting" off the circulation to your brain. You don't need to disco the rear driveline because the one wheel that IS powered will now push you through your turn.... like a bobcat, or a bulldozer.

Using a cutting brake, or a line lock for a tighter turning radius with a spooled rear end is a waste of time and money. Just hold your foot on the damn brake after you put the rear end in neutral. Ever do a brake stand? Your just doing a backwards one while turning.

But Daryl! How am I supposed to hold the gas, brake, and clutch at the same time!!! Jesus this is too hard!

I have a pair of purple Asics wrestling shoes from the late 80's/early 90's in mint condition that look like that.

Will they make me a better driver?

Yes, this must be the case. Can't be a friendly poke at a guy that used to be in my club. Never that.

Everyone can look at someone's rig and say this or that is a waste of time and money, but we all have different things we like to do.

Even with an ARB, there are times you want to disco the rear. We had a case like this at turtle ridge a few weeks ago, where a Jeep was stuck bewteen two trees and needed to do front digs to let the front end float. With the front brakes engaged, it would have heated up the brakes pretty bad (talking 2-3 minutes of sustained front digs). Having a rear tire engaged at double-speed would have driven him forward into the tree he was tryign to avoid.

It just depends on the situation you are in. Everyone seems to find some interesting and different use for them.


Since he's not going to have a welded rear, its a question of dual line locks or a cutting brake.

The primary advantage of the cutting brake is that it can be applied without stopping forward momentum. Nice travelling through a tight trail, when you need help cutting around a boulder or tree.

If you use a line-lock in that circumstance, then you need to stop, to apply the brake force to the cylinder, then release. Or, have a complicated setup that has multiple locks block out the other lines so that pressing the brakes only applies brakes to an individual wheel.
