any of the Prodigys and RVW usually has the best price.

John, I followed your Amazon link and they show P2 for the
price you mention but it's a 2nd party seller and not free
shipping I think..... still a pretty good price.
I googled a bit and couldn't find a better one.

Go for the Max Brake. We had the Jordan until he retired and Camco stopped making them. The Max Brake is FAR superior and we've been 100% satisfied since we purchased one almost 2 years ago. Diana

I know most people need to add an after market brake controller in there trucks, but if you are going to buy a new truck try to get the brake controller that is factory installed. Prior to the truck I have now I have used two different types and they were ok but factory installed is the best way to go at this time with my experience. I have a 2008 Chevy Silverado 1500 HD with factory installed brake controller and it operates extremely smooth evey time all the time.
