No, actually I just got a quote from a dealer and because I have a 15 Silverado I guess I need an additional module so the price is a little higher than MagnoliaTom posted. Mine came in at $1840 complete kit for both axles and shipped to my house

For my 6k axles, I spent $1126.00 for Kodiak kits and the Hydrastar actuator from trailer parts superstore or also known as eastern marine. They were the cheapest I could find at the time. I didn't purchase a line kit as I bought nicopp line, SS line nuts, SS braided brake hoses, SS clamps, SS stone guarding and misc items to do the install. I did the install myself. I also bought US made timkin bearings and races and installed them. The Kodiak kits came with China bearings and races. I also I bought national double lip spring loaded seals as well.
I ran 1/4 line to improve response time. I ordered separately the adapter fitting to convert the Hydrastar from 3/16 to 1/4. That, mounting the unit close the axles and limiting bends and fittings made for a no noticable delay system.

I called Bill at stopyuortrailer.com, the same guy the Magnolia Tom got his from. I couldn't believe someone answered the phone on a saturday. He was not in the office, he was out and about doing some shopping and actually answered the phone. Pretty impressed so far. Looks like my kit is gonna be up around $1900. I think I'm gonna a upgrade to the 8k bearings which I believe is different rotor/hub, studs and chrome lugnuts included. I also need the module because i have a 15 silverado. Like Mopar Earl did, I to am replacing their China stuff with Timken bearings and races and SKF seals.
Bill and I are gonna talk on monday or tuesday to make sure I get the right parts/kit and get one ordered before the price increase hits. Really didnt want to spend that kind of money right now, but... My install wont be happening anytime soon, its winter and the trailer is all covered up for now. I will post back on the install when I do it.

Aren’t most Timken bearings made in China these days?

That's a myth. I buy them often. From Amazon and Rockauto. Clearly stamped "US".

I’m just going to leave this here...

Not saying ya can’t get US made ones, but the Chinese made ones aren’t a myth. Worth checking the manufacturer mark, as you’ve done, to make sure.

Timken has manufacturing all over the world. As far as trailer bearings, I've only found US made ones. Another thing to be aware of is the boxes made in China but bearing in the US. So don't assume when the package says China the item is as well.
Bearings and races I bought for my 07 ram were US made as well.

What a difference disc brakes make

I contacted Performance Trailer Braking last week. Early March I am going to have them install disc brakes on my Pinnacle. I will be getting the upgrade 8000# kit which will include 9/16 studs and a larger outer bearing. I am having them do the install at my residence. I made an inquiry sending them the information from my axle tags and within two hours I had a reply giving me a quote.

Like so many others have posted I can attest to the difference between the electric and disc brakes. You have to experience a before and after install to appreciate the stopping power. I had disc installed on the 2012 Cardinal I traded in on the Pinnacle. After the installation we were going for a test drive. When I stopped at the first stop sign to get on the test road I was already sold I had made the right decision. I am 83 so my eyes and reflexes are not as good as you 65 year old youngsters so going to disc is mainly for safety reasons but also makes for a more enjoyable trip.

Oh, you have no idea! Hard part is I have to wait to start the install until the weather warms up in at least 3 months.

This is good to know. Not a bad price for brakes that actually stop. My biggest issue is we spent all our money getting this trailer. LOL.

I'm right there with you! I just paid mine off...so there's nothing left right now. I'm saving for the next big upgrade, just haven't decided if I'm going to do the disk brakes or the Flex Armor roof...

Dont be feeling all warm and fuzzy inside about the price. I got the same kit as Magnolia Tom. His came in at like $1600 and I'm sure that was a few years ago. I got mine under last years price and mine was $1950. Now, I did have to add the adapter for the GM truck and that was $85. I know there was a price increase for 2020 so I'm sure that same kit is pushing $2k.
It is a nice looking set up though
