Stay-in-play Duo install in 2015 Jeep Wrangler

Iím trying to install a Stay-in-Play Duo breaking system in my 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sarah. If you have done this, where did you install the large black box? I have seen several YouTube videos and several people install under the drivers front seat. There is a ledge metal bracket there so, at best it will be installed at an angle and halfway sticking out under the seat for people in the back to kick. (Not a great location). Some of the videos do not show the large metal bracket that I have and it appears to sit under the seat fine. Now for under the hood. I have seen it over by the battery on the passenger side but that appears to basically sit on top of the battery and I think almost is too tall to be able to close the hood without it touching. How this gets secured down is a mystery. Then if you look at pictures from Demco they show it on the other side of the engine basically sitting on top of the brake lines and near the large silver looking Thing? Anyways, if you have any good ideas and pictures of your install I would love to see them. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I have owned this product for 8 months and have not installed it, so I would love to get going on this now that summer is almost here.

Thank you.

I mounted my Stay and Play under the hood on the steel brake lines on the firewall. In a Honda Fit there was no where else to mount it. I made a set of bracket clamps out of a piece of vinyl picket fence scrap. Very secure and located near the vacuum line that you need to plumb into with the check valve.

The only things mounted inside are the brake cylinder and control switch unit.

I have a Sahara 2017 and my black box is mounted under my driver front seat. My on and off switch box is near the floor mounted to side wall near the bottom. It is out of the way of the break and gas pedal and easy to reach.

Luv the Stay & Play. Just hook up, flip the switch and go.

I had the Air Force 1 system on my previous coach with my DP. Another great system.

Great system, I'd recommend just trying various places for the box. In our Element I got it under the hood, can't recall exactly what it's attached to but there was room on something. I tucked the control switch mechanism up to the left of the pedals so you can switch it on but not knock it easily.

On the element I also wired the stereo through a relay that's normally on so that when the Stay-N-Play is on the radio is off, that way I don't have to remember to turn it off, and it's an indication if you drive the car and forget to turn the braking system off.
