M&G on newer Jeep Wrangler

I have a 2012 Jeep Wrangler that I am setting up to flat tow. Brake system is the last thing to get ready and I'm seriously considering the M&G brake. I called and talked with them to confirm the compatibility and discussed installation with the rep. He sent me some instructions and pictures of the install. The brake cylinder won't fit on the master cylinder without making some modifications. The ABS module must be relocated forward about 2-3 inches which means removing a plastic wall that the front of the module is mounted.

Questions; Does anyone here have the system and what issues did you have with the install? What did you use to cut the wall out? How did you secure the ABS module when the wall is gone, it had the mounting bolt. The pictures they sent, created more questions in my mind. If you do have the M&G system, did you also use their break away brake? As I recall the installation instructions were to just find a place to put it. I guess after I pull the top plastic engine cover I can find a suitable spot.

Biggest concern right now is the master cylinder, M&G cylinder and the ABS module placement.
Pictures would be helpful.
Thanks.
David

I installed one on my 2015 JK Wrangler this past summer, it's not to hard. If I remember right there are two bolts thru the inter finder well, I moved it forward and used one hole and two heavy duty cable ties to hold in place. My brother was helping me and it only took about 2.5 hours.

Thanks, every posting says it's easy. I'm not thrilled about cutting that wall out and figure I'll need my cut off wheel. Hopefully there is enough slack in the brake lines to be able to hold the ABS module clear. One of the M&G pictures they sent must be a different application since the surrounding area looks different and the ABS module is no where to be seen.

Cable ties, almost as good as the old coat hanger and duct tape.

Why not use the AF1 system. It's easy to install, at least as good as the M&G, and it's not vehicle specific so if you trade toads you don't have to buy another unit like you do with the M&G.
I've had both and now have the AF1 which has been on several different toads since 2007.

Yep took a couple beers before I started with the cut off wheel but was very easy, there is plenty of slack in the brake lines.
