Wiring Harness for LED Lights and Other Parts Needed to Tow a Trailer with a Mercedes-Benz R320 CDi


hey guys, looking to order a kit to make my 2008 Mercedes R320CDi tow-light compatible. wondering if Item # 119250KIT can also drive LEDs? please let me know when you get the chance, thanks!

Yes, the ZCI Wiring Harness # 119250KIT will work with LED lights and is a great choice for your 2008 Mercedes-Benz R320 CDi.

If you don't already have a trailer hitch receiver I suggest the Draw-Tite # 75470. This is a 2 inch Class III trailer hitch receiver and is a completely no-drill install. I've linked an install video for you.

If you don't already have them you'll also need a ball mount and hitch ball. I've attached link of our selection of ball mounts for a 2 inch hitch receiver as well as an article to help you determine the correct rise or drop you may need. Once you choose a ball mount you can then choose a hitch ball to fit it.

One way to make choosing a ball mount easier is to go with an adjustable ball mount like the B&W Tow & Stow # BWTS10038B. It features the ability to be flipped under the hitch when not using it and will provide up to 5-1/2 inches of rise or 5 inches of drop.

For a pin and clip to fit you can use # PC3 or if you'd like to have a locking pin you can use # BX8858.

I've also included links to some articles on towing that you might find helpful.
