BLUE OX AutoStop Braking system Install Question
 
Has anyone purchased and installed a Blue Ox AutoStop Braking system (BX8893) for their Jeep?

Any advise or suggestions before I start drilling and wiring it as per the instructions? It's very similar to the "ReadyBrake™ Supplemental Brake Systems"

Thanks

I'm familiar with the design, but not the installation. I'd check over at rv.net on their "dinghy towing" area.

FYI - Cooltechllc.com offers perhaps the easiest light solution for Jeeps that need only plug into the tail light harness on the drivers side and run a cable through the frame to the front of the Jeep for the light connector. Took me about 20 minutes to install on my JKU.

Racorman, is that you from RV.net?

If you don't find it on RV.net you might check out RVforum.com too, either their Towing and towables or the 4-wheeling forum.

Good deal, haven't seen you around the forums in a while. Guessing you changed from Toy Hauler to Motorhome? Just sold our ATVs, getting the Jeep ready for some mild off-roading now.

Install complete. It took some time to figure out the best way to run the wires and cable, but it works great and it really was easier to do without following their directions in the installation manual. It's kinda like when you were a kid and you bought a Revell model aircraft....... I never read the directions and just put it together :punk:

Y-Guy,

We still have the Attitude toyhauler with the Can Am Commander SxS. I got tired of not being able to take the SxS to great riding trails because it's not street legal. I have the TH up in Mammoth for the summer and will be towing the Jeep up there with my Duramax.

I see an RV in our future, but will still keep the TH...... There is nothing like balls to the wall driving the SxS in the desert at 70 mph. I'm not ready to give it up yet :thumb:
