Had one in a Jeep Liberty and now in a Tahoe. Plug in air hose and go. Worked very well behind a Discovery and A Providence. Only problem is they are not compatable between different vehicles, however M&G has an exchange program that helps. Takes no electrical to work.

I have been using an M&G brake system for over ten years and I personally think it is one of the best and easiest to use. I have now used it on three vehicles I have owned. Unfortunately it does not fit on every vehicle.

M&G braking

We've had M&G on a Chev Trailblazer and currently on a 2008 Dodge Dakota pickup. Had to trade in the trailblazer unit to get the dodge unit, but got about $200 off the new one. Love the setup, and have been using it for 5 years now. If M&G did not make a unit to fit mine I would go with Air Force 1 I think. Steve

Thanks for all of the info. I think I will be going for the M & G setup for my Silverado 1/2 ton crew cab.

If you have mechanical ability you should be fine.

Not a hard job. I did ours, and the main problem I had was one of the bolts holding the M&G unit to the brake booster was hard to get to, but I finally got it. I had an RV shop do the bus side of the connections because I didn't feel confident messing with the air brake system on it.

I had mine installed at a FMCA rally . They were running a "special ". After seeing it being installed , someone with average to good mechanical skills could handle the install job. Some vehicles will be more difficult to make the install .
