If I still had my Max Brake I wouldn’t need disc brakes.

Apologies to the OP for diverting this thread to a slightly different issue. Yes, I am still using the built-in Ford controller. It supplies very proportional voltage to the amount of brake pedal push, and works reasonably well. My only reason for considering a Prodigy is the ability to increase the initial voltage disproportionately higher than the amount of pedal push to get the actuator pump running on light braking, and get the initial delay done with. If my 2012 truck had the controller aggressiveness setting that later Ford trucks had, I would likely have no need to make the change.

"Apologies to the OP for diverting this thread to a slightly different issue."

Threads wander that's the way it is!

I don't know how your Ford controller works but I think you will be disappointed and some $$$ less in your wallet with the P-3.

If I were to try something different this would be the one I would choose!
