Well, I called Remco and asked them if they had corrected technical problems with their DDS for tha Jeep Liberty.
Yes and no, If you have one of two different shafts, they will sell you the whole assembly for $849.00
So, I have decided to take up my Pa in-law offer to utilize his spare SUV, an Isuzu Rodeo.
He is not concerned with the appearance and it is a manual transmission. I will be buying the tow brackets that fit the Rodeo and pull that for a awhile, should cost less than 1.5k for everything.
For the record:
Eagle 8000 tow bar, used, 400 dollars
Blue OX surge brake assembly, new 450 dollars
Lighting wiring kit, new, 100 dollars
Tow Brackets for vehicle, new, 250-350 dollars
Very expensive habit............................
