Same year as mine. How do your brakes work? Mine still are not right and they have replaced both sides drum to backing plate. I'll probably start a separate post on that..

So far they seem to be ok. I tested them with my brake controller and they seem to apply evenly and smoothly. I installed a Prodigy P2 on my truck.

Maybe I'll have the dealer try a different controller. The one they sold me seems kinda cheap. Just has a light

Amazon.com: Tekonsha 90885 Prodigy P2 Electronic Brake Control: Automotive

I'm pulling this with a 2013 Toyota Tacoma V6 Pre-Runner with the factory towing package.

That is the controller I installed. Took me about 4 hours to find the bloody wiring harness behind the drivers side kick panel and about 15 minutes to actually install the thing.

How does the truck do? I pull with a Ram 1500 QC LB with a 4.7L. She struggles a bit. 6% - 7% grades I'm at 30mph. Dealer did all the wiring, had to convert from 4pin to 7pin. They sold me this controller for $160 (jerks):

It is definitely a lot of trailer for her. The truck has automatic sway control built in and that seems to help a lot. She does fine with it on open highway. I keep my speed around 60 or less. Haven't had it on steep grades yet. I will probably avoid those the best I can. The truck is rated up to 6500 lbs of tow weight but this is about as much as I think I would put on it.

My 2014 195bh seems like the drums are out of round. The brakes pulsate when braking. I have to turn my gain down. That's was on my aftermarket controler in my f150. Now I have a the integrated on my f250. I still have the pulsating. Dealer said they couldn't find a prob.

After they replaced everything I have pulsing at low speeds as well and moaning. They seem to act right when cool and first driving. The more heat the more stupid they act. Taking it back in on monday. Might see if they will swap my voyager controller for a P2?

BTW the loaded backing plates with the shoes and magnets they installed have the manual adjusters instead of the the auto adjusters. They said the auto stuff is garbage. Just don't understand why drivers side keeps working hard and passenger side is under working. It's closer than before. The original drivers side drum after 300mi looked like a cheetah. Inside surface full of black spots lol. That sucker was getting hot!
