Hi guys just want to let everyone know that jeep has finally fixed the ebrake issue. There is an updated handle and new cables. I installed it today and it works. The new cables are shorter. I got mine on eBay as a package and it said the cables and the handle were needed. I didn't notice anything different with the handle though. Just thought people would like to know. I will also update in a week or so to let everyone know if it still works.

All JK e-brakes work, at first. Use them a dozen times or so, get them dirty/muddy a couple times and they're toast. Shorter cables aren't really a good idea if you actually wheel you're Jeep and flex it out. If short enough, they'll actually inhibit droop.

No. Just a counter point to the blanket statement that ALL JK parking brakes work, at first. Mine has been great from day one. So have the ones on the JKs I am locally familiar with.

must be climate related. They're all garbage here within short order.

Edit: you're in Maine. I'm in New Brunswick. Can't be climate difference. Must be a Canada / US thing...

I'm still mightily impressed w/ your e-brake, Ringer. I never knew that was possible until the thread you posted about that wicked custom setup you created! How's it holding-up?

Thanks. I've ran it for about a year now and it works great. I had to adjust the cable a few times as it stretched, but beyond that perfect.

The best parking brake I found is to leave the 6speed in gear.
More than a few JK owners have seen their JKs at the bottom of the hill they parked on after having left it in gear with the parking brake off.
