Secondary E-Brake?

I have never had any luck with emergency brakes on any of my vehicles. My superduty is by far the worst. I was wondering if anyone knows of a secondary ebrake kit. My truck will be in the shop again on monday for an adjustment because it cannot hold itself on any kind of incline. if im ever on some sort of hill and want to get out i have to turn the truck off and put it in gear so it wont roll.

a bigger problem is if i have a trailer on a hill, such as a boat on a boatlaunch. over the summer i had to stop the engine and put it in gear to help unload the boat. unfortunately the boat was heavy enough that the truck started rolling backward while it was in gear. it didn't roll far but i realized i cannot trust the truck on a hill even in gear.

i love the 6 speed but times like this i wish i had the PARK feature.

I hope you're not going back to the same shop for that readjustment, it's all mechanical. It may need new e-brake shoes. The e-brake is an old school drum brake inside the rotor.
