I had mine installed, but the installer just followed the instructions from blue ox. We choose not to cut up the grill insert to try to put nice holes in it, it looks great without it. I would have tried it myself but reading the install I thought I might need help and only ladies around here. Good luck and don't forget a charge wire, otherwise it will be dead.

it was a staight forward install,altho it looked a bit scary with all the front "tupperware" removed. i am going to use magnetic lights and a portable battery/jump start pack to power the brakebuddy.my biggest problem was i put the outside temp sensor to the side in a safe place so i wouldn.t lose it
L LOST IT a new one is 10 bux so i quit looking, now i am anxious to tow it
my wife likes driving it more than the jeep so depending on destination i can now choose,maybe better gas milage too as it weighs less and is more aero than the jeep.
