Dexter Axle Predator Electric Brake Controller Installation - 2012 Chevrolet Silverado

Today on our 2012 Chevrolet Silverado we're going to be installing the Dexter Axle Predator. This is a proportional electric brake controller capable of handling two up to four brakes. Part number on it is 58-8. The Predator is going to offer us a lever activation right here. That's going to allow us to gently apply our brakes from inside of the vehicle without actually using the brake force here on the floor. As you can see, once we do press in the blank 00:30 on the floor, it gives us a reading of .17, but since this is an inertia-activated system, if we're not moving it's really not going to provide a lot of force to those brakes in the back. A great thing about the an inertia-driven system is that when we really have those emergency stops and we really have to stand on the brake, it's going to sense that and it's going to give us a lot more power back there to help us come to a stop.more
