having a spool in the rear with rear cutting brakes isn't going to work, and having a spool in the front is going to suck.
True. Welding it up is an option but if the non arb is going up front it will be a Detroit or lockright.
Aussie Locker in the front and the ARB in the rear. You have to have an open differential option for the brake cutting to work I would assume.
i'd eat the three point turns, spool the rear and ARB up front Cutting brakes aren't exactly popular on the front? probably for good reason. maybe give a run down of your build and what type of stuff you're wheeling?
You need a rear disco. The rear is to light to lock up just one tire, its going to just drag it.
Ill be running rear disks for sure.
I'm looking to run cutting brakes on my pickup. ....Anyone have thoughts?
As you described for your type of wheeling and your vehicle design plans, cutting brakes will be a complete waste. Gnarls.
rear disco as in a transfer case disconnect. I don't think the cutting brake will work too good unless you drop some more money
Now then.If i was to run cutting brakes i would ARB front and rear. I would use ABS units from a Lexus 400 VVTi and plumb all four corners into it and actuate each corner electronically. Big levers in the cab are .You will also need to run either a front d/c or have a tcase such as an atlas or a 80 series cruiser with a center differential, otherwise everything will be fighting everything else.If you ran the ABS unit i would wire it to disconnect the ARB simultaneously respective to the wheel which you were locking, otherwise run them permanently locked. If you ran the ABS unit and learned to drive it you wouldnt need any lockers.this can also be done with a 4 slice electro hydraulic spool block with or without hydro boost. it can also be done by other means.
I run Detroit rear arb front, disco and cutting brakes. Like I mentioned before, you are going to find out fast that your truck is to front heavy and will just drag the rear if you don't lock up both tires. You have no plans on running the disco so you are going to have to gutt that truck and get it as close to 50/50 weight bias as possible to work.
Yes quite a bit. But if it didn't matter and doesn't inprove performance, why do people building rigs/buggy's from the ground up worry about weight distribution so much. 🤔
Sounds like big mike is liking his cutting brakes in his new tacoma.
What's his setup?
