Comparing Tow Ready 118496 & Curt C55513 4-Pole Trailer Wiring Harnesses for 2010 Toyota Tacoma


What is the difference between part #s 118496 and C55513 ?


Expert Reply:

The only significant difference between the two is the rated maximum current output on each of the circuits. Tow Ready 118496 can provide up to 2.1-amps for each of the stop/turn circuits and 7.5-amps for the running light circuit. The Curt C55513 offers a 3-amp capacity for the stop/turn circuits and 5-amps for the running lights.

The Tow Ready 4-Pole T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118496 and the similar Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness # C55513 are both confirmed fits for your 2010 Toyota Tacoma without the factory tow package. Both are simple plug-n-play installations that require no cutting or splicing of wires. They plug in at your taillight assemblies and require only that you make a ground wire connection (using the ring terminal on the white wire) to a clean bare metal surface.

An installation video showing a 2010 Tacoma is linked for you; this video refers to part # 118496 but the process will be identical for both products.

If you know the power requirements for these circuits on your trailer this will help you select the harness that best matches. If you do not know the trailer's power demands then go for the lower-priced Tow Ready # 118496.
