Trailer wiring adapter

Anybody know if an plug in adapter is available for an 1988 jeep wrangler? I kinda thought of taking an easier way to wire up trailer connection if possible.

Everywhere I go looking they think I'm crazy.

not likely

It won't be likely as there isn't a single point at the rear. The wiring comes back on the driver's side and crosses over to the passenger. The right turn signal wire should be continuous so it doesn't lend to an adapter.

The wiring goes along the top of the driver's rear fender. You can work there and get all 3 of the wires. Then just extend them through the grommet and down through the fender to exit at the rear. Takes a little longer pigtail but works well. And gives you a reasonable place to work and check later.

I grabed access to my harness wiring as the wireloom came around the drivers side rear, quarter panel ust before it dives down to the signals, bought the female setup with the led indicators, looks nice and tucks in out of the way when not in use.
