Good Job! Congrats! Unfortunately, I am not very good at mechanical endeavors, thus the Jeep dealer is going to do it.

I hear ya. The jeep Wrangler is so easy to work on. The fenders come off with relative ease. I broke one of the plastic fasteners that attach the fender to the sheet metal. (It is still held on with 6 bolts too.) But, I bought the Jeep purposely to tow it behind the Motor Home. I would have never purchased a Jeep Wrangler if that would have not been the case.

However, I must admit, I've enjoyed the Jeep so much, wish I would have owned one way before the end of last year when I bought this one!

Thanks for posting the pictures of the braking system install. I'm about to do the same install. Just completed the lighting and now working on the baseplate install.

Cool, just take your time and a few beers . Pay close attention to the break away wire. I wanted to run it in such a way in the event it did get pulled that it would not damage anything else. So, if you pay close attention, I ran it under the spring tower and right against the chassis. If you look real close, there are small gaps between the spring tower and the shock tower where they are welded to the frame. I used this location to provide the safest running of that cable.

Removing the fender is the best way to provide access to everything. If you haven't removed the fender before, there is not much too it. There are five plastic fasteners underneath and 6 bolts holding it on. Then the whole fender is attached to the sheet metal with body fasteners. Be careful not to break those. The one in the very front can be accessed from behind and you can use a pair of pliers to squeeze it closed from behind to get it out without breaking it. Then the one on the very bottom at the rear is accessible from behind. However, the rest you will just have to pull and yank the fender off and pray that none got broke. I tried to use a body fastener pulled, but did not have much luck with it. I probably still did not have they correct tool.

I have the Blue Ox Patriot and every little issue I have had they stood behind the product even replacing it free of charge including all the shipping. It uses wireless to the dash in the motor home where you can change the amount of preset pressure and manually run the brake with a lever just like the old under dash trailer units!!!

Wrangler '12 with brake buddy2. I liked that I could move it to the next vehicle and easy hook-up at tow time. I thought it was overpriced but I can change motor home or tow vehicle with no concern for a change out. I'm glad I have it.
