Hoppy Trailer light "T" Connector 97 TJ

I have a 1997 TJ that I will be towing a small (500#) boat with. I have the hitch and just got around to pick up the Hoppy T connector (42605) for the 91-97 model.

The directions say to lower the mud flaps to access the wiring connectors on each side. I had a few minutes today and removed the driver side flap (3 bolts) but it did very little to expose the wiring they described. A little looking tells me there are some wires back in behind the wheel well plastic.

My question is. Do I have to remove the wheel well plastics and mud flaps on both sides to access this wiring? It sure seems like more that a 15 minute job that they describe. Also, if I have to any tips to remove the wheel well liners? Or is it pretty self explanatory?

I appreciate any help.

All the wiring you need access to to connect your trailer connector to is exposed by removing nothing more than the flap located underneath each rear corner.

+1 and you'll need a quick trip to the parts store for a few ''plastic medium head snap in things'' to re-attach the flap.

I've always just re-used the OE snaps. They've been removed many times but they still work for me.
