Just recently finished installing Ready Brake on a Chevy HHR. Once everything is installed it's a piece of cake to hook-up and unhook. I did a lot of research before deciding on this set-up and very happy with it. Like any major project, it took more time than I expected (but I did get to buy some new tools
). I had priced some local dealers and was looking at roughly $2,000+ for a tow-bar, baseplates and lighting - this did not include a braking system. Ultimately I found entire "towing system" from a single source and got everything for $1850 and did all the install myself. This was Blue Ox Baseplates, Blue Ox 4-diode wiring kit & 7-to-6 pin cable, drop hitch, Ready-Brake tow-bar/braking system with in-dash indicator light and the Ready-Stop breakaway system.
