can you imagine attempting to drift while sitting on a bench seat. Swapping in bucket seats from a pathfinder or hardbody is a very popular swap with these trucks. I don't think anybody on here running an hydro ebrake has or kept a bench seat in their truck.
But let me ask you why do you need a hydro brake at all???

never heard of a hydro applied e-brake......have heard of a mechanical(spring) applied e brake with a hydraulic or air release. Does not matter how it is achieved. Going the other way is kinda crazy, any pressure system has to bleed off over time. Makes the e brake useless, no stored energy for it.
