I recently bought a 2007 Wrangler and needed to set it up for toad. I spent lots of time researching posts here and on rv.net to identify which vendors to use, both for manufacturing and for the online order.
I just placed two orders, one for the towbar setup and the other for the braking system.
is running a special on Blue Ox towbar (Aventa LX), removable Blue Ox baseplates and safety cables - package price is $749, delivered for $833. I liked the 10k lb rating for the Aventa LX, and read posts from many happy Blue Ox towbar owners.
As for the braking system, I read a sh*tload of posts on that topic. At first I was leaning towards a brake-in-the-box setup, especially when I found that rvpartsoutlet.com had factory rebuilt Apollo systems for $549. But after reading a bit on the topic I decided on the US Gear Unified Brake system. I ordered that from www.tweetys.com
for $598, to which I added a 7pin to 6pin coiled cable (Blue Ox #BX88206). With the cable and shipping the total for Tweetys.com was $685.
I will still need to get a cover for the towbar and a wiring kit for the Wrangler. I am thinking of going with Blue Ox #BX8869 which installs seperate lights into your toads rear light housings.
I really struggled with the choices for Brake System - lots of options!
