I have a '97 Land Rover Discovery. I haven't yet bought the braking system. Still looking for a good deal on a used one.

Is there another system that others use that is a proportional unit ?
I understand the Brake Buddy system is not, but appears to be very popular. Reason?

Kyleozdin, Check your state laws if you are thinking about towing without a brake controller. I know in Ohio anything above 2000 lbs requires brakes. I use a Brake Buddy in my Jeep Liberty.

I live in La. The law here is 3000 lbs. I am interested in a supplemental braking system that is portable from vehicle to vehicle. There is a second vehicle kit that has the break away and wiring systems I have searched this material. Brake Buddy make different models. Just curious what success or failures other have had with different makes and models before I invest in a system.
Thank you in advance for your input.

Moving the brake buddy between vehicle is simple, you would just have to have break-aways in all of them. I have found mine works best if I set mine at slightly below the actual weight of my Jeep.

What is the difference between Brake Buddy Vantage and Brake Buddy Patriot, other than price?
