Trailer Wiring Kit

Hello fellas,
I have a '03 Wrangler X. I have a trailer with lights but I have no wiring on the vehicle. I bought a Hoppy wiring kit. I pulled down the mud flap behind the rear wheel on passenger side. I am just not seeing the connector that according to the instructions and a video I watched says should be there.

Any ideas?

Hope I have been accurate in the descripton. And thanks for any help.

It should be on the drivers side rear wheel well. That's where my 06 is.

Passenger side on '06 LJ. The connector will be wrapped in foam tape. It's there.

I've read several threads where the connection needed to be made on both sides.
My '04 Unlimited was on the passenger side

It depends on the connector and wiring harnes you are putting in. Some have a single large connector that pics up all the wires needed at one connections. Some pic up each side indivisually with two sameller connectors.

Well I see no connectors on either side. I have looked into the dark places where the wires go into and all I see is solid strings. I wonder if the the '03 X has a connector on the rear wiring.

Trust us, the connector is up inside there, you're just not looking hard enough or deeply enough inside the corner. It is there, stick your hand up inside and when you feel wiring, pull it down and the connector will come down with it.

And whether the connector is on the left, right, or you need to connect to both sides depends on the model year TJ.

I have an '03 and the wiring is on the passenger's side. Like others have said, reach up there and pull the wiring gently down, the connectors will be there. Use a flashlight and you will see it.

In '04 they put the wiring on the driver's side.

Yea, it's not a separate connector, it is the wiring. there should be plastic block style plug that connects the wires from the lights to the wiring harness that runs along the underside of the body. find that block separate it, and plug your tow kit wiring harness into it.

That's great advice thanks. I found two connectors. One on each side. Does that mean I need to use the double connector or can I use one that picks up both sides?

I went ahead and ordered wiring kit with two connectors from etrailer.com. I feel pretty good that this will get me going. Thanks y'all for helping me out.
