my e-brake sucks a fatty and ive been looking into line locks anyhow since our engines/tranny wont keep the truck from rolling on an incline. the only loks ive seen are the solenoid controlled kind. will those work with the engine off and not drain the battery? or is there a mechanical version also that i can use? all the applications iv read are for drag racers and stuff. i need something to keep me on an incline with engine on or off with out having to get out and find a big rock or tree to chock wheels.
thanks

Interesting, my 2001 has a GREAT hand brake. I parked on some steep hills, that were hard to walk on.

Try an RV store, they should have a manual brake valve.

Have you checked your E-brake, cables, shoes, drums? Maybe your truck was driven with the hand brake set and the shoes and drums are glazed.

Is this common on the Taco? Do alot of people have this problem on there Tacoma?

That is badass! i have a huge problem with my truck not holding itself offroad and that thing says it will hold on a 45 degree incline. Is there any downside to putting that on my truck?

I'd check the adjustment on your e-brake. It's under the drivers side seat, on the inside of the frame rail. Check to see if you have a leaky axle seal allowing gear oil to get on your brake shoes... My 2001 e-brake works great, and I live in the Mtns
