Tow bar installation recommendations in San Antonio

Finally settled on a 2013 wrangler as a Toad. Looking for recommendations where to take it in the San Antonio area to have the tow bar, base plate and braking system installed.
Also equipment recomendations, seems i hear about Blue Ox quite a bit on various forums. Any help appreciated!

I have a 2014 Wrangler for my toad. I use a Blue Ox towbar, and so far I think it has been excellent. I would also recommend getting the Blue Ox KarGard screen to protect it from rocks being thrown up. The first time I towed my Jeep I didn't have that, and I had major chips in the paint from rocks and debris being thrown up behind the RV.

As far as where to install it, I live in Houston and had mine done at the local Jeep dealership. I'd suggest contacting your local dealer for help.

Oh, and also, just yesterday I had a braking system installed in my RV and Jeep. I went to M&G Engineering in Athens, TX. I think they have an excellent system that works off the air brakes from the RV. You just connect an air hose between the RV and toad, and it applies the brakes as needed. Very simple and effective.

Iron Horse in San Antonio. They've done several things for me and I've been pleased.
