Product Comparison Of The Brake Buddy Stealth and Demco SBS Stay-in-Play Braking Systems  


I have a 2019 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk, already installed a Blue Ox baseplate and 6-pin light connector has 4 wires going into it. Now I am ready to get a supplemental braking system, but I want a more permanent mount. I am trying to decide between the Brake Buddy Stealth and the Demco SBS Stay-in-Play. Both seem to be good. I will be going through mountains occasionally. Can I use the current 6-pin plug, do I need an additional battery charger, or a break away? Thank you

Both the # HM39530 and the # SM99251 are both good options but for your needs I recommend the # HM39530. It uses a 7-way flat connector, which is included, and can plug into your lighting system with a 4 pole connector it has coming off of the 7-way flat connector. It also comes with a battery charger that will keep your battery charged as your tow. The # SM99251 does not come with a battery charger so you'd have to purchase a separate battery charger like the # BB54FR. Both braking systems utilize a vacuum pump to restore your vehicle's vacuum after each braking event and both have an inertia sensor to help apply the correct amount of pressure to your brakes. The # HM39530 offers additional fine tuning of brake sensitivity that the # SM99251 does not. Because of these reasons I recommend the # HM39530.
