I need more room and I was looking for one of these guys for sometime. Its big enough for my ego and my even bigger mouth :) Chicks dig me in it, but my wife is not hot on that part..hehehe she will adjust :)
I will hold onto my 1995 Grand Cherokee (48k original miles) because I wanted more than one 4wd...it will be setup for towing my tractor (Jd4100) along with the bikes, I just have to install the brake booster and locate a car trailer for the tractor....as for the brake trailer I'm not too hot on aftermarket installs, especially screwing with the factory wiring harnesses. The truck itself is rated for 8,500 towing, and it has real good power. I'm one of the few who actually take their SUV's on the beach often (15-20 times a season)...
If anyone knows of a clean install after market brake controller please advise....

I'm not exactly familiar with that or if they still offer it? is it built into the trailer , and when enertia is pushing it, it applys brake pressure?

Yup built into the trailer, and tons around. Almost all boat trailers use it.

Hopkins mfg. makes some other controllers with more bells an whistles.

I am very satisfied with mine and the fact that I did not have to have my truck cut up to install it.

Thanks for the info Chief !! Hey Pat wanted to put a wall around America many years ago to protect its borders and keep the immigrants out - That is still a good idea :)

Anyway, thats a political subject and I'm done with that...I will leave that for those who likes to hear themselves talk....:)

I wouldn't go with surge brakes especially if you have any hills to back up. I have never like surge brakes go with the electrical brakes. The controller Chief posted looks good and it just plug in.
Also nice ride.:thumbsup:

Thanks Chief for the Info and everybody for the compliments on the ride...

It looks like they do not sell directly, so where I do buy one?

Thanks again...

With My Best regards,
