i own a 83 f250 6.9 2wd. i am looking to get a new brake controller. i had an energizer but didnt work. looking for a new one that is good for large loads. i tend to tow large trailers. 3 axel 5th wheels and 4 axel goose neck.
wondering if anyone has tried this one.
not experienced with it but amazon has it cheaper than your ebay listing. amazon has it with mixed results ie 3 stars. i would recommend going on amazon and seeing how they're rated. i currently have a prodigy that i likeon my 02, 6 years old and 0 problems, and built-in ford one on my '08 that works nice.
'02 f-250 cc srw 4x4, auto, 4" exhaust, pillar pod w/ post and pre turbo egt, trans temp and boost, black brushguard/bumper, chrome step tubes. bully dog trans kit, ts performance 6-pos chip, stock, high idle, 50, 75, 100, 140, volant air intake
'08 f-350 cc drw 4x4, auto, mini max, 5" downpipe back exhaust. black ranchhand bullbar bumper, S&B intake.
IMO, some items aren't worth the risk of off brand. If your wanting reliable sure stops with those loads, a brand name controller is best. I looked ( admittedly not too hard) and couldn't find much info for the Bully controller, and what reviews I found were leaning towards the negative side.
With that said, I have used Tekonsha since 1989 and currently use a Prodigy. Well worth every penny it cost me, when it comes to safety.
I have two prodigy's, so you can tell I like them. They aren't as good as the factory built-in controller in my 2005 F250, but they are better than anything else I tried. Word of caution, I think they are only rated for three axles so double check that before you burn one out.
Looking at the box from the Prodigy P2 I bought last year in preparation for 3000 miles towing a horse trailer it shows rated for 1-4 axles. I have had and driven quite a few trailers with a variety of controllers and the Prodigy P2 is the best I have used so far.
