Need Help, towed vehicle brakes On the cheap?

I need to add brakes to my jeep for flat towing. I also need to rig up some break-away brakes as well. For break-away, I thought I could just rig the emergensy to pull if the jeep broke free, I should be able to do that, but I am at a loss for rigging it.

Anybody done this or have any suggestions for either of these brake questions?

I know of aftermarket companies that sell this stuff, but minimum is over a grand, and go up to $3k. Way to much money for this poor jeeper.

C'mon folks. With all the resourcefullness on this board, I have a tough time believing no one has a solution they would like to throw out. Even if it is off the wall!
