TC Lockup can be made for under 15$ and you can convert your EBPV to a brake relatively cheap as well.

These mods are on my To-Do list.

You turn it on and off with a switch. For the ebpv brake some hook it into the brake lights and what not I dont I dont tow much I just use it to make noise coming up the off ramp on the interstate and such. Its nice to have though for stopping and the t/c lock up worked awsome when pulling a trailer I think

Oh **** thats a good idea, putting it on the brake lights.

Is the EBPV something that wears out if used often? Or do they last forever like the rest of the truck?

They can start to stick after years of use but it is easy to fix!

the only problem with hooking it to the brake lights is you have to step on the brakes which doesnt really reduce wear
