Jeep and Brake Buddy

Greetings:

Are there any Grand Cherokee owners out there using a portable Brake Buddy? I have searched this forum and have not found any specifics. I have a 2012 Jeep GC 4x4 that I would like to consider using the Brake Buddy on. We are only going to tow our Jeep 3-4 times a year and I hesitate to install a permanent system.

Thanks in advance for your response.

Dave

Yep, I used my Brake Buddy with my 96 GC and currently with my 06 Commander. Works great and as expected. Easy to install and remove.

I have Brake Buddy with a Wrangler. Works well. I don't like having to remove and store it whenever we want to use the Jeep. But for a few times a year usage thus would not be a biggie.

I am moving to a ReadyBrake, a pretty easy install (just a cable from the front through the firewall to the brake pedal.

We used it on a Cherokee, Grand Cherokee, Colorado Crew Cab, and currently on a Sierra 1500 Crew. It seems to work with anything.

I use the BlueOx Patriot, which is essentially a Brake Buddy, in my 2009 Jeep Wrangler X.. Not the same as your Cherokee, but pretty close. I've been happy with it. I sometimes loose the connection between the remote (in RV driver's area) and the box, which delivers a beep and "C" signal, but the brake system still works regardless. You don't even need that remote for it to work, though it's nice to have a visual on it. Can't determine why on some days it has no issues connecting, and other days it struggles. Ultimately, it works, so I'm not concerned.
