Toad gear

Looking for some advice on the best deal around for flat towing equipment. I need the tow bars, electrical stuff, brake activator system of some type( I'd like prices on a safe, effective unit), pretty much a complete system. I am not afraid of buying used as long as I can see it. I am towing a 2010 Rubicon Wrangler.

I bought my blue ox alladin tow bar off craigslist for half new retail, and my smi stay n play braking system from a forum member, also used for half retail. It all works really well. I tow a wrangler TJ.

You'd be hard pressed to find a better price than using the Ready Brake / Ready Brute system. I bought a set of used Roadmaster brackets on ebay for 1/2 price. Demco adapter from ReadyBrute. Roadmaster coil cord from CW and a nice set of coiled safety cables on Craigslist. All done all parts under $1400 and I supplied the labor.

Another Readybrute Elite/Readybrake supporter here. Get the Cooltech wiring harness for the lights and you're all set. By far the simplest and most cost effective setup I found (and I looked hard!!)

^^ This. We bought the entire setup (except the Cooltech harness) from TowBarsUnlimited.com. Great deal.
