2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with pics

Here are a few pics of my toad setup. Hope this helps the next guy looking to get his Jeep behind the motorhome.

2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Willys Edition. Roadmaster tow brackets (twist lock w/round attachments), Demco Commander Tow bar, 4" drop hitch (until I lift my Jeep), and SMI stay-in-play hard wired braking system.
All together installed I payed $3200. They did a great job and very clean installation. The toggle switch and vacuum brake are very nicely hidden inside the Jeep as well as the brake control box under the driver's seat. This was the least expensive quote I received for this system installed and other work quotes were as high as $4000. I could have possibly done the work myself but especially did not want to tackle the auxillary braking system in the brand new Jeep. Work took two days. Dropped the Jeep off the first morning; dropped off the motorhome the next. Then drove off with both a few hours later.
Have already towed the Jeep for a few hundred miles on our first 4-down trip. No issues and I love how the brakes feel with the SMI system. They are adjustable as well.

Nice Jeep, we have a black 2014 Rubicon, but ours is all tricked out for rock crawling. Enjoy.

Nice! I also have a 2014 Sahara and shopping for a readybrute system, hard part is to decide between upgrading the bumper or getting a baseplate...

Upgrading the bumper is easy. I got mine off eBay for about the price of a baseplate and love it. I had NSA make custom tow bar adapters to hook up to the ReadyBrute too. Click image for larger version
