There are pre-made wire kits for the JK series.


And no, it won't interfere with the CANBUS. The brake light system has some leeway. You just don't get the separate fuse factory wired ones get.

I tried to be good, but I got bored...

We get a mopar branded hitch from bestbars in new zealand down here, and they come with a plug in 7 pin flat plug (current standard down here).

You simply unplug the current wiring at the tail light, plug the new trailer wiring loom onto the now vacant tail lights connection, the existing wiring loom then plugs into sockets on the new trailer wiring loom.

Simply plug and play Nothing else required.
