2007 Jeep Liberty

I just purchased a 2007 Jeep Liberty that I want to setup as my toad. Any recommendations to what base plate / tow bar / brake system combinations to go with. I intend to do the installation myself so they more user friendly the installation is the better.

Ready Brute tow bar with Built-In braking system. Great bang for the buck.

Appreciate the suggestion Vince, but I did spring for a RVI Brake 2 system, Blue Ox base plate and Aventa LX tow bar.

Just in the process of setting it all up, base plate went on without a hitch, the most time consuming part was threading the taillight wires from front to back. I opted to go with the extra sockets in the taillights seeing as the Liberty already has an empty red light reflector which just needed the 1" hole drilled, piece of cake.

Still need to install the breakaway switch and re-install the grill and front bumper cover and we should be good to go. Other matters called for my attention so this won't happen till tomorrow.

Unfortunate our Coach is still in winter storage so won't be able to get pictures of the setup for another week or so.
