It's a drum-mounted brake that attaches to the rear of the transfer case on the driver's side. If you're asking about the lever, it's a large lever with a button on top that sticks up to the left of the xfer case levers.

Jon, do you have a pic you can post?

If you have everything else, I have an extra parking brake lever that Rich was talking about. LMK.

Hmmm....what do you need pics of....the stuff on the tcase and the lever and the linkage?

Heres some to get started:

Lever and linkage mounted to passenger side of the transmission:

The pic teking shows above is the stock ebrake with a conversion flange to allow the rear driveshaft to run off the same output as the ebrake. This eliminates the very loud whine at speed that the stock tcase has but it isnt a stock item....normally the rear driveshaft is on the passenger side output with the ebrake on the drivers side one.

Why does the drive shaft in stock form come off the right side shaft, what capability do you lose if any by connecting to center shaft.

Why it comes that way I dont know....
I do know that there is no functionality lost...I have had mine that way since 1999 and many many others have their converted too with no problems....you still get high range, low range, 2 and 4 wheel drive as before...no difference at all....except it does cut noise as noted above...from a ton at highway speed to NONE...and some say it lowers their t-case temps...

The only downside to moving it that I have ever heard was a clearance issue with the stock gas tank when the rear axle is swapped out for, say, a Chevy 14-bolt. The stock axle has the differential offset to the passenger side a bit, so it is not an issue unless you swap in a rear axle with the differential centered. It may have even fit (barely). Haven't done it myself though.

I think the benefits would easily outweigh the drawbacks though.

Bluesman moved the axle and had pics of the clearance. Don't think he liked it very much - believe he moved the tank.

A centered t-case output with a centered rear axle will clear the fuel tank. Not by much, but it does clear it. I can think of 3 former members who where running such a set up for years. You will get into serious clearance issues if you enlarge your driveshaft diameter though.
