96 Tracker ReadyBrake Receiver Style Install ?

I do realize some say depending on where you are you do not need a auxiliary brake system, for safety reasons and my wife's piece of mind we want some type of Auxiliary Brake System. Lets not debate this here. Thank You very much

I just got a 1996 Geo Tracker 2dr 4x4 rag top. I already have my Tow Bar and everything I need to Tow.

I would like to install the ReadyBrake Receiver Style. I did watch their video and understand how it is installed.

I have specific questions and NSA was not able to answer. When drilling the hole through the fire wall behind the brake peddle I noticed that it will either HIT or come REALLY close to the Brake Booster. Is that the right place I have to drill in order to get the cable through? Or can I angle it down? Also how did you route the cable in the engine compartment? Did you dive under the radiator and then through the grill?

Thanks LeeB

It's the nature of the design of most brake boosters to surround the base of the master cylinder, making a direct shot at the brake pedal difficult. Look for the cleanest, straightest path to the brake lever. If the attachment on the brake lever is offset, go for that side through the firewall. At the front, again look for a path that keeps the cable straightest. perhaps under the radiator, under the bumper, or a hole through the sheet metal on the side of the radiator.

By the way, while some states don't require toad brakes, the law of physics is in effect in all 50 states, Canada, Mexico, and most the rest of the world.

Thanks for the response BF...

I am looking for some who HAS the ReadyBrake installed.... I can drill a hole but it will not be directly in line with the paddle, it will off to the right about 1 to 2 inches and low...
