What do i need?

I have look at about every site I can find and I am about to commit. I have a 2007 Jeep Wrangler. I have purchased a Currie base plate for the Jeep. it looks good, I don't have to take my light bar off and it was on sale today with free shipping for $208. It will fit Blue Ox and Ready Brute.

I am going to purchase the Ready Brute with the Ready Brake. (Just have to find the best deal online as no one sells it close to us in the Chicago area I can find)
I am going to get the Cooltech wiring kit.

What else will I absolutely need to have and what do you recommend (safety chain? And ......)

Thanks in advance!

Yep, you'll need some safety cables. I'd recommend getting a breakaway system that will stop your toad if it should ever become separated from the coach while in motion. You may be able to buy a towing package that includes those items. One more thing to consider is a drop-hitch if your motorhome tail is significantly higher or lower than the toad, placing the towbar out of level.

Ebay for the Ready Brake (299+21 shipping) is the best price I found.

I believe th Ready Brute Elite tow bar/brake comes with an emergency stop kit. I've towed a '06 Wrangler trouble free for about 30k miles. Easy straight forward install. Make sure you specify what base plate you have, so they'll send the proper ends. Adventure RV in Tn is where I got ours. Good price, quick shipping

Received the Currie industries baseplate. Looks easy install. $208, bought Cooltech light harness. It's on it's way. Instructions seem easy online. $155. Just pulled the trigger for the Ready Brute Elite from tnsproductsinc.com for $880 free shipping. Found them on EBay. Comes with the ready brake and safety cords and the Clevis for my base plate. They were awesome to deal with. Any questions were quickly answered and they were the cheapest by a bunch. Many of the others even charged extra for the Clevis and safety cords and even one charged for the light that supposed to come with it.
Will let you know how it all works when installed!
