In order to install electric brakes on your trailer you will need a brake mounting flange, brake assembly, hub/drum, trailer wiring, breakaway kit, and brake controller. I have attached my recommendations on each of the following for you below:

Brake Mounting Flange: part # 4-34 (2)

Brake Assembly: part # AKEBRK-2

Hub/Drum: part # AKHD-545-2-EZ-2K (2)

Trailer Wiring: part # ET7WK

Breakaway System part # 20099

Brake Controller: part # 90885

In order to be sure the above hub/drum is correct you would need to know the numbers on both the inner and outer bearings. If the numbers are not visible than you can always measure where they seat on the spindle with a digital caliper like part # PTW80157 to the thousandth of an inch. I have attached a help article to walk you through this process as well.
