M & G braking system

I'm considering installing the M & G system on my new Jeep Liberty. My old 2004 Jeep Liberty had the Readybrake system. It worked well, but I prefer not to drill holes & attach cables to my brake pedal. Is there any other systems to consider & is this system better than Air Force 1? I like the idea of no cylinders or cables!

Thanks for any info

I have used M&G brake system on three vehicles. I personally think it is the best system available. That is my opinion. It is easy hook up and disconnect once installed and uses no power from the toad. It is also proprtional braking to the motorhome braking. Wish you the best of luck on your choice of braking systems.

The M&G is the only system I know that bypasses the brake booster, It puts ABSOLUTELY no drain on the vehicle battery (with one special case exception) and so on.. (in fact ideally it will never use electricity at all)(The special case is a break-a-way, one hopes that never happens).

It does not press on the brake pedal so it will not activate the brake lights (On most braking systems the towed's brake lights come on the turn signal on the towed is inhibited) And of course it is 100% invisible to the driver of the jeep.. I mean NOTHING not one part of it, is inside the cockpit.

What's to not like about it?

Great system, really easy to hook up. Best on the market for the money!

I have never used one because I change toads to often but I think it's the best system on the market.

2 toads over 8 years, M&G is the easiest brake to use, In my opinion anyway :-)

Trade off the Honda. Keep the M&G.

Yeah, I did look at it, but my AF1 works pretty well.

When we bought our MH, some friends who are full-timers showed us the M&G under the hood and told us how trouble-free it was. We bought one in 1013, and haven't even thought about it since. We just attach the air-line and it works. If you have a gas engine MH, they have an adapter kit for that too.
