Looking for company to install towing equipment for Jeep

We are located in Panhandle area of Florida. I am looking for recommendations for individuals or companies that can install towing plate, electrical and braking system for either a Jeep Wrangler or the new Jeep Cherokee. Looking for recommendations from people that have had good installation experiences. Would also consider driving north to Alabama if necessary. I am considering Blue Ox system with Air Force brake system or possibly break buddy.

Thanks for any advice in advance.

Not that you would consider driving to N Georgia, but I just had one of our mechanics (technicians if they work on a BMW ) install the Blue Ox baseplate on my '13 Wrangler Unlimited. VERY reasonable and with all the precision one would expect from this type of mechanic.

He had access to the shop lift that solved my worst problem of having to lay on the ground or carport floor when putting this thing in place. Looks like I may try the new Blue Ox air brake system but I am worried that the install and removal of the air cylinder each time I use the toad may be a pain. Helped a friend install his Brake Buddy back in the fall - 30 minutes ! Same thing when you use the toad with that however.

If you install an aftermarket front bumper you can use simple and inexpensive brackets bolted to the face of the bumper. Most any shop, especially a jeep shop, could readily do this for you. If you used the ReadyBrute tow bar with integral brake its also easy install that the same shop could do. This route would provide more bang for less money and a very good towing setup. IMHO.
