I'm getting my trusty 2006 Jeep Liberty CRD set up to be a toad. Since I been using a trailer 4 wheels off the ground I want to touch base here so I don't miss anything for 4 wheel down is new to me. The following Items I snagged for the project:
1 Roadmaster Eagle 8000 tow bar complete with base plates for chevy pickup for $200. I sold the base plates for $200 on Craigslist but not able to find used for my vehicle so $399 new from e-trailer. Also a new set of RoadMaster 68" Single Hook, Coiled Safety Cables - 6,000 lbs $46 from e-trailer. So complete tow bar set up $445.
2 Roadmaster Even Brake used only twice $200 plus I have 2nd vehicle kit on the way for $150 from e-trailer and still save $900. They had their toad wired with the transmitter but not the breakaway. Scary!
3 I picked up a pair of magnetic tow lights from Camping World for $35. I'm thinking that it makes it simple since two vehicles electrical systems won't get mixed up. I think the two issues are feedback and turn signals and brake light issues. I also won't have to install the brake light relay kit that comes with the 2nd vehicle kit.
That's what I have so far is there anything I missed that I should know?
