Brake Smart Controller Custom Install

When we bought our 2002 F-350 it came with a SurePull DigiTrak brake controller. The SurePull is a Class-I, time delayed controller and after using it to stop our Everest 343L for a year we decided to upgrade to something better. We searched the forums and found that there were , each with different features and costs. We did a lot of research and when we considered that the replacement cost of our truck and 5er was over $100,000 it made no sense at all to save $200 to $250 by installing anything but the best controller. The only two Class-V controllers we could find were the integrated system on the new 2005 Ford Super Duties and the Brake Smart controller. Since a new Ford F350 would cost $54,000 and the Brake Smart costs only $350, we opted for the Brake Smart!

  • the brakesmart controller is much more than a brake controller

    I've never met or heard from anyone with a Brakesmart controller and would like to get some first hand feedback. The Prodigy has nearly all the same features as a Brakesmart but does not use/require that a sensor be added to the tow vehicle master cylinder, which makes installation easier. But I can see where Brakesmart could get some (small?) advantage by immediately knowing the TV brake output rather than waiting for an accelerometer to sense and kick in. Whether it is worth the price and install effort is another issue. But I & many others know a Prodigy works smoothly and efficiently.
