Ready Brute Elite, front cable mods?

I finally made up my mind and bought the Ready Brute Elite. I still haven't set it up yet... still considering options for attaching the cable(s) to the brake pedal, but mostly still wondering how I can somehow hide or disguise the cables that will be hanging out under or around my front bumper.

I anticipate using my Jeep Wrangler as a toad maybe 10% of the time and the rest of the time as a normal driving car around town. I'm not real thrilled with those cables hanging out in front 100% of the time.

Anyone have any hack ideas on how to hide/disguise these?

I attached the end of my cable to a piece of angle iron I mounted behind my grill. I left the cable about 6 inches long. I just tuck the loop back behind the grill when not in use.

I also tuck the break away cable behind the grill when not in use.

I drilled holes in the brake pedal to avoid using the larger bracket on the brake pedal. I covered the ends of the cable at the brake pedal with black electrical tape to hide them better.

That sounds cool. The cables aren't too HIGH? Any photos?

Sorry it is a bit hard to get a picture of the bracket behind the grill. This is on a Ford Fusion so it is very low to the ground. I am guessing someone with a Jeep can chime in with another example.

No... I get it, and I like it. After looking at their install videos again, I guess there's no reason NOT to make them a little longer and then tuck them in somehow. Thanks.

Can't help with tucking the cable end out of sight. I keep looking for a plastic tongue to attach to mine!

As far as interior, did I send you the pictures of the pin and roller mod for the brake arm attachment? If not, Let me know.
