The 2013 and above have no steering lock. Jeeps really hold their value and the newer ones have the 286 hp pentistar engine which is fantastic. Newer jeeps are much more cAr like. We bought the rubicon because I'm not a jeep builder, looked nice right off the lot. We use the blue ox system to tow, but the braking system is permanently installed on jeep, completely transparent. Also have an additional electric brake booster to keep brakes charged. Stops better towing than not.

SanDiegoDoug: Would you be willing to share what the total cost was for the complete set up? Where I am somewhat mechanically minded, time is not on my side related to our first extended trip.

We live up in Manhattan Beach but as a youngster I was raised in Coronado...

We paid around 3500. My wife wanted the best system possible and we didn't want to see it in the jeep when not towing since my wife loves driving our little ruby around when we don't camp. We actually bought jeep in Huntington Beach , but they would not install system. I'm sure I could have put in system but wife wanted a professional to do it, since our safety was at hand.
We love beach camping and Doheny is one of our favorites when we can get a reservation

Growing up in SoCal we camped at Doheny every summer in the 70's. It's probably changed a bit in 40 years. Hopefully not too much!
