It's what I call my red-neck cutting brake. When doing a front dig with the rear axle disengaged and unlocked (I guess it is an open axle at that point, Jerry :)), and the brake on one wheel engaged, it will pivot around that wheel.

Not quit a hydro cutting brake, but it was a fun little project to do.

I joined two stock levers...

...and split the cable at the equalizer.

I got the levers close enough together that you can still easily engage both simultaneously like a regular parking brake.
That's pretty slick. (y)

I'm wanting to do this in our 01 TJ. If I go the mirror route what cars am I looking for at the pick n pull? Also on earlier post it was mentioned the need to add in an adapter to work with newer openers.... I'm guessing if I get new enough mirror or console mount homelink I won't need that, but what years am I looking for as well? My 2012 yukon factory homelink works with our opener, so I'm guessing at least 2012 and newer, but can I go older as well? I'm also going this route in our 95 yukon as well, but the TJ will be the guinea pig as its simpler to mess with.

I just recently installed a mirror from a large Nissan SUV. I think it was a mid-2000's pathfinder.

I pulled all the mirror harness out all the way down to the plug and socket in the A-pillar. Then snagged the temp sensors off the radiator support, including the plug and a few inches of the harness (there were 2 sensors on the support so I took them both but only ended up using the gray one).

I used a Nissan service manual I found online to splice into the Jeep harness with the service manual in the resource center here. I replaced the Jeep plug and socket on the dash and radiator support with the Nissan unit. Even though the Nissan had the homelink wired into a constant 12v I used a keyed source so someone can't open the door if I leave it in the driveway. I have pics of my splice info -pm me and I can send them over for you.

I used it for the first time yesterday after bringing it out of hibernation. So handy!

Google Kia

B2062-ADUP1 many Kia dealers online sell this homelink mirror for around $15. Comes with instructions and the electrical plug.​

Just saw this. I googled and do see them for around $15, but to be honest, I'm a bit skeptical of that price. I also watched a video of someone installing a homelink mirror in his kia and he spent $250 on his Kia mirror. Hmmm.... I do appreciate and I'll look into more or I might hit a salvage and see what I find!

No need to be skeptical, I bought one and put it in my Jeep and it works great. Kia has these listed as an accessory/ upgrade for some of their models that are 4-5 years old maybe they just want to move them
