Perhaps Air Force One braking system? Since you already have an air line for an M&G system this would be easier to install, and hopefully just as trouble-free as M&G.

I just bought a new Chevy 1500 4wd for towing behind our MH. I specifically bought it because it is 4-down towable without any modification, and, my M&G system will work with this truck.
I love the M&G, completely trouble-free, just plug in the air line and go. Folks who have the AF1 say it's the same way.

I traded my 2015 GMC 1500 in on a Jeep, had M&G on it as well as the Jeep. .Kind of a dumb move but its done now. I bought a 1998 Chevy pickup so that i would have a truck but i want a new one and will occasionaly tow the pickup. Keeping the Jeep.

I did remember to remove the M&G from DW's Jeep before selling it to a salvage yard.( semi hit her). M&G offers a $150 credit towards a new one if you trade it back to them.
