The box is 3"H by 9"W by 11"L. The off switch is on the front so you dont need to access anything on the top of the box. There is a gauge on top that shows the amount of pressure that is set but once you set it the first time, you really dont have to look at it on a regular basis, so as long as you have the above clearance, you should be good to go.

Thanks for the info Mike. I'm heading out to check the clearance under the seat in my Jeep. Hopefully I'll have enough room.

But it's great! Flip the power switch on and "that's it". The SMI saves me a lot of time, effort & storage space.

I just purchased and installed SMI (SilentPartner) based on this thread. The hardest part was pulling the hose and wires through the firewall of our turbo PT. I found the main wiring harness and pulled everything through the grommet. Connecting the vacuum tee was made hard only by tight quarters. I called my coach maker and car dealer and both gave me the correct wire to tap for the brake light signal. The brake cylinder did take some time to adjust so that we still had full pedal travel. Took a few spins around the block testing the brakes in a panic stop to be sure the brake cylinder wasn't interfering. The SMI was complete except that I had to add some additional wire in the coach to install the transmitter and reciever at the drivers window, and I built a bracket for the break away switch instead of mounting it to the bumper. That kept Patty happy.

Our first 1600 mile trip was last week and it all worked great.I like the latched mode when we were in heavy traffic.

Thank you ALL for your posts and helping me make a good decision.

Oh, it has to sit on the floor behind the front seat. I think I'll put velcro on the bottom of the box to keep it from moving around.

I just finished installing the SMI Stay-N-Play in my 02 Jeep Wrangler X last Wednesday. Took about 6 hours over a couple of days. No hurry here. In the jeep, it fits nicely behind the driver seat between the rails of the seat. Tight fit but not forced in. I believe if your Jeep has the flip-up driver seat it may not go there. I tried putting mine on Passenger side and found the flip-up to be a problem. There is plenty of room behind or under rear seat thought. By the way buy from SMI and mention the $50 lower price you saw at another site on the internet. They will give you that price and free shipping. I heard the other place is a family member or ??. Good luck.
