Jeep Liberty Brake System

Just bought a 2011 Jeep Liberty 4X4 to tow behind our Newmar MACA. I'm searching for braking systems and would appreciate opinions on what to buy. I prefer to go with a mounted system as opposed to one that you have to place between the seat and brake pedal.

SMI looks interesting as does M&G. Are there others out there I should consider?

Thanks

I have a Roadmaster Brakemaster that is fantastic on my Liberty. Really fast setup and progressive braking.

Another vote for the Brakemaster by Roadmaster. We have used it for a year and a half now and it has worked really, really well.

I have had my Brake Buddy for 12 years, and I love it. Used it in a small Saturn, and now my 2012 Wrangler. Fits perfectly. No power drain either. 30 seconds to install. Just sayin....

We have the SMI AFO in our 2012 Liberty. If you have an air-brake coach, it's a great system.

I have been using the Brake Buddy on our 2012 Jeep Liberty. Continues to work well, easy to use.

Would not consider anything but an M&G. Have had it on a Liberty and a Tahoe.

I have a 2011 Jeep Liberty that I tow behind my Fleetwood Southwind and I had Camping World install a InvisaBrake under the drivers seat. It sticks into the foot space behind the drivers seat a little, but It has worked great for the last two years.

A bit more than a year ago I replaced the type that sat on the floor with the SMI Air Force One. I don't miss having to mess with the set up on the old style, and I gained storage space no longer taken up with the old unit.
