trailer lights
 
my bumper has a receiver hitch but i don't have a light hook up, is there a pre wired harness that im just not seeing? Do i need to tie into existing wire? thanks for any input

Look up your year/model. Just installed one. Took 45 minutes. They even have install videos to assist you.

I got a wiring harness from 4 wheel drive hardwere. It plugs into your tail light harness

You can buy a plug and play harness for your year and model. Even it will fit onto driver side harness, it won't work right. Needs to be on pass side harness.

Crawl up under the pass side tail light and pull down on the plastic cover. The harness is up in there a ways and the tail light is plugged into it... That's the spot you plug in the trailer harness 'T' to and plug the tail light back to the 'T'

You can buy a wire harness at most auto stores. I found one on the shelf for 30. It plugs into the right tail light wiring harness, super easy to install.

I put on a hitch an harness over the weekend and used a T-Connector #55363 from thehitchstore.com. Super easy to install and works perfectly. Looks like the same one from Amazon but more expensive.

Or if you have a NAPA near by they have one also, I used it on mine and it installed and worked fine.
