Hi McGarrett. We looked at Blue Ox. We did a lot of reading on posts on RV forums and Jeep forums to see what works for most people. The install dealer we bought from carries Roadmaster. They have a long running history and are family owned/operated. They came highly recommended and I now see why......give them 5 stars ADH, Inc, Parkville, MO. They also carry the Ready Brute tow bar and the brake system. I wanted the surge brake system. Ready Brute home is in Iola, KS....not far from here and again family owned/operated. I opted for the surge brakes so I don't have to carry a pod and make adjustments everytime I wanted to tow. KIS keep it simple. I became very comfortable with the set up and hooked and unhooked with supervision and instruction from ADH and then drove to storage and unhooked without any difficulty.
Blue Ox was recommended by the dealer I bought my Precept from, but I wanted the whole setup, put on at one location.
There is no doubt I could have saved some money if I pieced it together myself but I am not an install guy. This is the first towed I have worked with and I wanted it right. Besides, the Jeep is Mary's and she would not be happy if I messed something up on her Jeep. Happy wife, happy life.
