Toadstop braking system

I've done a search on the site for the Toadstop braking system and came up with a few older posts that go back a couple years. I kinda figured a few years have passed so there might be some things that have changed in the system. I had just heard about this system, called the company and got well informed about this system from John at the company. As one knows we always get well informed from people selling their products. Now is the time to find people actually using the Toadstop. Their website is safe-techsolutions.com. I have no monetary value with this company. I'm just looking for the best braking system. either SMI or this Toadstop system. Can anyone help with some expert advice? Blueox does offer this system.

I use the US Gear Unified Tow Brake system to tow my Jeep and am very happy with it. I would also take a look at SMI and M&G both very good systems.

Yes, it came with good instructions. The main reason for choosing the US Gear system is that it is recommended by Monaco, Winnebago and a few other MFG's. I know that the M&G and SMI are probley easier to install and are great systems, but I had no problem installing it myself. I did have a couple of questions and got complete support from US Gear. It has been trouble free so far and it comes with the break away system and also charges the toad.
You can read about it here.

I'm using the Brakemaster system and am quite satisfied.

I've had another brand as well and think they all work reasonably well. It's morea matter of price and preference than whether or not the system does the job.

I use the Tow Brake Mountain Master. I first bought a Brake buddy but because my CJ7 has a full roll cage in it the BB wouldn't fit on the floor, so I went with the Tow Brake which is small and works like a screw jack powered in and out. Plus I way able to get a additional install kit so I can use it our other toad. Had it now for 6 years and it's been great!
