I ran mine below the bumper. Mine comes out in between the top of my blue ox base plate and the bottom of the bumper. The nylon fitting is actually attached to the very top of the air dam on my setup.

I also rigged the dash light installation so it is activated by the toad brake switch not the readybrake actuator arm.

I ran the cable from the firewall, along the frame rail and down underneath the bumper. IIRC, I drilled a small hole in a bracket that is in the center of the bumper and used that to mount the end bracket for the readybreak cable.

My cable is below. See pic. It should be at the same level as the tow bar and in the center of the bumper. If it's not centered it will pull when you don't want it to in a turn.

I use a Blue Ox Patriot and it is a little tricky to get set if you don't have a power seat. I did have an issue as I could not feel it apply the brakes on the toad. I emailed Blue Ox last thursday about it and man what a company, I mean the service was outstanding! On Friday the following week Fedex delivered a new one to my door in Canada. You just can not get better service anywhere and they believe in there product and now so do I! Gretchen work Blue Ox, I'm still waiting for a reply from the company I bought the unit from. Not so great work Woodys RV.

Thank you for the picture, did you need to use a drop hitch to get it level?

Guys one last question, did you run the cable to the pedal through the floor or through the wall? Thank you.

You have to run it through the firewall as it has to enter right in front of the brake pedal.

No, the mounts on the Jeep were the perfect height for the Motorhome. I use the entire Ready Brute / Ready Brake set up and the tow bar is about as level as level can be. It couldn't of worked out better had I planned it that way.

Okay, both holes have been drilled and final installation to be completed tomorrow and then off to Bristol and Atlanta for the races. Thank you all for the guidance.

DIY install Ready Brake on 1990 Wrangler about 15k miles ago and happy. Did have problem finding way to route cable around engine to center of front. Ended up putting cable in electrical PVC with two radius bends at front. Only needed a couple tywraps to secure PVC. No glue, just pushed parts together.

I found a hole in my outer Firewall that was right in front of my brake pedal so I only had to drill a small hole through the inner firewall (06 Wrangeler).

I had to use an 8in drop hitch to level up my tow bar to the Wrangler.
