Yes you do need a parking brake....If you don't want to install an electrical one you can purchase a mechanical one that is very easy to install . Matter of fact you can get the mechanical one from the same vendor....I use the mech one and think it's great........

I use one equivalent to UTV Inc.'s. It's one of those that a few manufacturers copied with little changes, but as a whole, function the same. No matter which you get, they work and work well.

They will both work quite well......On one you have to tie into your brake line, on the lever one you don't.......

I have that exact parking brake. It works really well. Its made by Trail Armor and the instructions are pretty good. You get a dash mounted, lighted switch which you switch to engage it. Once the brake is on, shift into park and back into drive with no pressure at all. It will hold the RZR with no problems at all on hills. Just make sure to take it off before you try moving lol.

im havin a hard time deciding between the lever and the button behind the shifter, i do want the do a mechanical brakin system i think would be better then eletrical, but cant decide between the two, the lever looks to me like its just pushing and holding the brake down (idk if thats true just what it looks like to me) but not sure how the button is tied up into the brake, which one is better at holding and last longer, guessin both keeps from yankin the shifter

I did a little research before I made mine and I decided on mechanical because most of the electric ones would only do the rear brakes. I don't know if this is true on all electric models but I wanted one the would brake all 4 wheels. I love my set up because I can apply it and winch someone out keeping the rzr in "N" so that all the force is not on the trany or transfer case.

Oh and how it works... You pull the button which pulls on the back of the pivot lever while pushing on the brake there for blocking the brake in the pressed postion. The spring is there so that when you push the brake again it automatically releases the parking brake and sucking the button back to the normal state.

The one I posted pictures above. Again I made my own but there is a kit on Ebay thats sold for around $90 what works the exact same way. I beleive all his hardware is SS I made mine all out of 1/4" aluminum because I ride a lot of salt water.
