    Questions about M720 and brakes

    Is there a cheaper way to install air brakes on your tow vehicle? I'm thinking an electric/air system on your truck and then run the air hoses to M720 axles. Need air compressor and the electric actuation system. I have no experience with air brakes, but thinking 1 system should be less...
