Ready brake on Jeep Wrangler

I was thinking about purchasing the Ready Brake unit that goes in the receiver. I'm towing a 2001 Wrangler with a gas class A. Any feedback on this unit? I plan on moving up to Diesel Pusher in a few years so i want a unit that I can transfer when I change coaches . Thanks

I've been using the ReadyBrake since 2012 with no problems. It's simple, effective, and low-cost!

You'll be happy with the Ready Brake setup. We tow an 08 Jeep JK with our MBS rig and am very pleased but it. Simple, easy to use, cost is way less than other companies, and you can do the brake cable install yourself. If you go with this setup, be sure to get the emergency breakaway system too. Another plus - lifetime guarantee.

Just installed on my 2015 Wrangler. Also in stalled NSA Break Away. Install was easy. Not so much so for the base plate.

And another happy user. Lots of miles in nearly five years. The initial setup takes a wee bit of time (very little) but once it is done you just hook up and go.

I purchased Ready Brake with emergency breakaway devise recently. Installed entire system including remote brake light at coaches dashboard in on afternoon. Have made two trips towing my Jeep now and am very happy with this system, $300.00 on eBay.

It's so simple people can't believe it works as well as it does. I have had mine for 6 years on 3 different toads. Can't believe a a much higher priced brake system could work any better.

ready brake and Wrangler JK

I have the ready brake tow bar combo and the Currie base plate. Both work great. Currie installs by replacing plastic air dam.

I have the Currie base plate as well. Not a tough installation, lucky for me a buddy has a shop with lifts so we could stand and work on it rather than laying on my back. Made doing the cable install for the ready brake much easier as well
