The trailer brakes improve stopping power under demanding conditions such as when navigating steep downhill grades. They also have the benefit of reducing wear and tear on both the trailer and the truck, so are an especially viable upgrade for owners who tow quite often. The trailer brake controller itself is integrated into the Gladiator’s instrument panel, with a round controller knob situated ahead of the shift lever. The amount of brake force on the trailer can be customized as well. Existing owners of Jeep Gladiators will be able to have the trailer brake controller retrofitted.
“Our new trailer brake controller improves Jeep Gladiator’s braking efficiency and maximizes safety when towing,” said Mark Bosanac, Head of Mopar Service, Parts, and Customer Care.
