Started SMI Install

I finally started the install of my new SMI in my Jeep. Got the duo installed today, started by removing the "platform" on the drivers side and fabricated an aluminum plate to replace it so the duo will sit flush. Countersunk the bolts to the aluminum plate to the bracket and then self tapped the duo to the platform.........see attached photos. Tomorrow we will be back at it and finish up the install of the gforce controller, brake switch, breakaway, and all the wiring.

The install continues, from last weekend, see pictures below. The last thing is the brake switch connection and anchoring the actuator connector to the floor...........then the test!

Finished up the install yesterday. Test drive went well, I rode in the jeep while a friend drove the MH. Brakes great eases on and off no jerking, I will do some fine adjustments to the sensitivity.
I need to make some detailed checklists for the jeep setup and the SMI to Tow.
