I've been searching and I cant find the link. A few weeks ago I came across a post where someone kept the e brake. They said it took very minimal fab to work. I hate not having a rear e brake as well. I am going to be finishing the rear of my truck next weekend so maybe i'll have an answer for you by then. I'll take pics and post them in my build.

This is what I did on my truck,





I ran the e-brake down the leaf springs. I used adel clamps to keep it in place.
I'm also running a Tundra axle which is much wider and the brake cable pulls from the passenger side rather then the driver side. I just spliced the Tacoma cable into the tundra cable after the pivot on the axle housing and it works great. Super easy, clean, and works great.

My stock ebrake seems to work just as good as before the LT swap, its just not attached to the bracket on the gas tank..

i would be curious to know if its just a legal thing that the companies tell you not to use a line lock for a ebrake, or if they bleed off after a while or something

No the line lock will bleed off. after some time the pressure will find a weak point and star to bleed out either at a junction or maybe your seals.

I work on Lifttrucks for a living and there are a lot of options out there that are similar to that set up - just not quite so shiny :). The inline hydraulic setups work pretty well holding LARGE HEAVY FORKLIFTS and I have not seen any that bleed off unless there is an issue.

I just did the rear of my 4runner and was going to use a cable off a truck setup but my cantilever arms got in my way so I ended up using the factory cable set up and it worked leaving the last clamp unattached with 15.5" of travel.
