Post those pic of the Jeep and name all those places. Many here have Jeeps and look forward to enjoying all the thousands of trail miles out West.

Ok, Pics attached

Demco Baseplate purchased through E-Trailer
I wish I had taken pics, when I have the wind damn off again I will take pics
This model was for the Metal Bumper (forward thinking so when I upgrade bumper) this choice added some extra thinking and cutting that I did not expect. Easy to do, just wasn't expecting it

Ready Brute Elite purchase direct through NSA, came with the Demco adaptors
Towbar and Brake Combo
Very hefty and durable
Be aware it is not light, if need to remove from motorhome it is a bit heavy
Brake Cable was easy but a PIA due to the fact I have the 2.0L Turbo Engine and THERE IS NO ROOM IN THAT ENGINE SPACE TO GET MY ARMS IN.... Lucky my wife has small squishy hands and arms and has no problem helping.. Some problem following directions But she did great.
The end of the cable is in that hole in the middle of the ABS wind dam, the cable tube is bolted through the metal wind dam just behind the ABS dam.. Just need to pull the end out of the hole and connect. Not in use it sits inside the hole away from any potential snag while out wheeling

Emergency BrakeAway cable also installed, also needed Squishy hands to help me with this part of install
That is the Red Loop at driver side horn... All wire tied into place so as not to snag on anything

RoadMaster Universal Wiring Kit
The yellow silver elevtodes with blue wire connects
Not installed yet

Thats it for now
I'll share the test run results later..

last pic is we made it to Death Valley Furnace Creek for a potty stop and jeep was still connected

Adding some pics of my finished install
Pic one has the wires and cables hidden (my Demco caps are in the MH)
Pic two has the wires out of their little hiding box and the cables out from their hiding spots
Pic three is the only place I could figure out where to install the emergency brake pull box
Pic four is the cables at the brake pedal

I'm about to install this on our JL with the 2.0 turbo. I too was noticing that there is little to no room under the hood. Any additional advice on how you routed the brake cables?

HA! We have an '18 Ocean Blue JLU; same Demco baseplate with Demco Commander tow bar and Invisibrake system. Also the 2.0 turbo (great engine, by the way!) and yeah, it is tight under there. I did the installation myself, ran the electrical lines along the firewall and zip-tied them.
