Pac Brake Install?

Should I install a Pac Brake and what kind. I tow a 32 foo Toyhauler with 2 bikes. Hoping this will save on brakes a little.

Makes a HUGE difference going down grades with my manual! Hardly ever even touch the brakes on grades up to 5%. Best investment I made for peace of mind and safety towing the 5er.

Sounds good. Easy Install? I can do this with a automatic? Cost? Where should I buy It?

Yes good investment, easy install took me and a buddy 5-6 hrs to really do a professional install. Product is of the highest quality. Yes for auto and buy it here. Pac has been running a $100 rebate, not sure if it's still in effect though. Great customer service as well. You won't be sorry.

PBRX yes, I love mine as well. Received my 100.00 check a week or two ago.
Just got into Fla. From Mi. and it helps in alot of ways. Very good upgrade for sure.

It's my pot and I'll stir it if I want to. If you're not careful, I'll stir your's as well!

I installed the PBRX and use it many times every day even without towing my fiver. It's a great mod.
Have 110,000 miles on my truck with original rear pads and still about 25% of life left. Changed the front pads at about 95,000 miles.

Probably the best mod you can make to your truck in my opinion.
