It makes sense to me that the back brakes would lock up first because of the heavy utiliy box. If the front brakes locked up first maybe they would slide because of the weight from the utiliy bed. If you had a heavy boat behind you and only had front brakes you'd be in big trouble. Back breaks with a heavy rearend would most likely be better. I don't know what do you guys think about that? Must be the reason for being bass ackwards.
