But M&G here too. Had it installed at the shop near Athens TX. I think his son did the install.


It's funny on the FB page there was more of a mix of suggestions.

I have no idea whose on FB,or what their experience is.
I know that i have used M&G for close to 30 years on many different vehicles and they have been flawless and fool proof.
I have sold many and installed many M&G units.


The guys that posted here about M&G are the pros,they understand mechanical stuff.
WOG for the win!

Heck yea, for real information I always come here.


Craig had posted on the WOG Forum Facebook page asking the same question. And there were only a two M&G posts. Several other suggestions.


I'll stick with M&G. When we get a new TOAD it'll either be getting moved or a new one will be going on.

OK,i will admit there may be another brand out there that works,but there may be another brand coach out there that works too.
I'm not interested....

Had my M&G system installed last year. Love it. I like how quick and easy it is to hookup. One air hose to plug in and clip on the the break away cord...maybe 15 seconds

FWIW, I looked at the M&G system and liked it. However, for my 1999 Jeep Cherokee it moves the master cylinder forward enough that it requires removal of the factory air filter box according to M&G. As I did not want to remove/replace the factory air filter box I bought the SMI Air Force system. Never had a problem with it and works well for me. Break away emergency brake system is included in the system.

I have M&G on a TJ wrangler, and Air Force One on a Honda CRV. AF1 is more sophisticated on the coach side, and universal with no upgrade costs for future toad changes.

Hookup is the same for either, and both perform the function they were designed for.

Each has its own install hurdles.

One costs a bit more on the second install.

Not knowing any better, or worse, and not checking here, we decided to go with the Air Force One. It had many satisfied customers, and we were rushed deciding. I'm about to do the install on our Jeep TJ.

We bought it from our "friendly" dealer. They lost the male connector and bracket for the towed car. They lost the emergency breakaway connector. They lost the air hose and vacuum line.

It's a long story, but, when I complained, they said they wouldn't replace it.

I'm in the midst of trying to repurchase all the missing stuff.
