New toad...where to start...

Hi All
As most Newbies, we found out quickly that its a lot more fun with a toad. Ive checked the forums but cant seem to find the answers I'm looking for. DW and I have decided to trade in my Ram Sport on a Jeep Wrangler.
Now...where do I start. What do I need, what will it cost, what can I do myself?
I need to be educated.

Dazed and confused

2006 Forest River Georgtown 350.
Toad: 2014 Jeep Wrangler : Auto.
PS. The coach has a Husky Excursion Brake Control mounted under the dash...if that means anything.

Well we just went through this with our Jeep GC.

Plenty of options. If you are mechanically challenged like myself then the options get less.

You can go from a cheaper tow bar that will be a little harder to install to what we got and that is a falcon all terrain bar. you can also get a portable braking system or get one that is mounted and out of sight like we did with the invisibrake. We basically went all in with the best new stuff we could buy and went to CW for the install. We took advantage of there install special and the total bill was $3k. Would have been $3500 without the deal.

That is the high end. You can go cheaper with used equipment and self install.

Hope that helps.
