I drive an automatic, and am thinking about relocating my E-Brake to the floor to the left of the brake pad. Not like I have anything there anyway.
I'm wanting the space where the E-Brake currently is for a custom console I want to build. Anyone know which vehicles had the Foot operated E-Brake under the dash. I was thinking maybe I could salvage the E-brake system from one of those and install it into my jeep.
Are E-Brake systems different on vehicles besides length of cables on the under side?
I think this may be a interesting project, something different.
This is a pretty snazzy looking foot operated E-brake
But the 200$ price tag is a lil much.
Any kinda info on E-brakes would be great.

well first of i have a manual so another pedal there would end up overdoing it also handbrake tends to be easier on a trail with manual. Let say you are trying to climb something.. with the handbrake you can control the brakes and the gas at the same time while with a foot brake it wont work since you gotta kick the gas and hold the clutch at the same time and also stay on the brakes.
Also its easier to retract the hand brake than the foot brake since its just a button thats at yoru finger tip while w/ the foot brake you gotta bend over and stuff..
Use a YJ pedal assembly. It should bolt right in, then you just have to get some cables made, about 85-100 bucks.

Try looking for a Fiero in a junk yard, I'm pretty sure they have it there, and it depends on what you want to use it for. Are you planning on it holding the Jeep in place while you are getting in and out? If you want to actually use it regularly, I'd leave it where it is. What are you trying to add in a console that you need to move it, anyhow?
Many Fords like old and newer Taurus ,Aerostars or newer vans,F150's ,Chevy Pick up's,etc,etc...
But like someone said before it is more practical where it is right now,bealive me if that mod where usefull there will be kits all over jeeps stores and catalogs for that specific mod.
