Pull behind tow bar

Hey Guys,
I've got a quick question to those people who pull their Wrangler behind an RV or such with a tow bar.
I was thinking about doing the same, just with my pick up truck so that I don't have to drive the Wrangler all the time towards parks/trails and such.

I was thinking about setting it up via heavy duty D-ring mounts on my stinger front bumper, also have got already a Blue Ox tow bar over here.
So that I have to either setup the vehicle lights or use magnet ones is obvious.

But now the big question, what do you guys do regarding breaks?
Since usually a trailer this heavy behind the truck would have e brakes on it.


Thanks
Matt

I use a Ready Brute Elite which is built in to the tow bar, but since you already have a Blue Ox bar, they do make a receiver part that does the same thing here: ReadyBrake Supplemental Brake System for Towed Vehicles - NSA RV Products
Pretty nice system and easy to install.

I used a universal hitch brake similar to the link above, worked well.
