Auxillary Brake System 11/12 Grand Cherokee
Hope that this is the correct section to post in - Guess it could be Interior -?
Need to install an auxillary braking system in a 2012 Grand Cherokee. This unit applies the Jeep brakes when the vehicle towing it (Motor Home) applies brakes. The unit that I have, I took out of my 2008 Liberty. It consists of a rather large servo motor that pulls a cable that is attached to the brake pedal. In the Liberty, I had it mounted under the Driver's Seat. This worked, except that it took up rear passenger foot space. In the Grand Cherokee, it is to large to go under the driver's seat, as it interferes with the seat track, and the storage are under the driver's seat. I am considering mounting it on the passenger side firewall, however it a brief look last night I did not see a path from the passenger to driver's side over the transmission hump near the firewall.
Other components consist of a control box and a vacuum pump. Vacuum pump goes under the hood and attaches to the brake booster vacuum line.
The unit is made by US Gear and is the UTB-1000. Any information on a path for the cable from Passenger to Driver's side, or experience mounting this type of unit would be appreciated.
