Tow Bar Lighting Recommendation for 2017 Jeep Wrangler that Doesnt Cut or Splice


I had ordered this wiring kit for my 2016 Jeep Wrangler, which I thought the website had matched for 2016 Jeeps. Before I got it installed, my Jeep was totaled and I purchased a 2017 replacement. Now the website shows this not to work for 2016 or 2017 Jeep Wranglers. What has changed from the 2015 to 2017 wranglers? Will this work or do I need the Hopkins wiring package?


Expert Reply:

The Trailermate part # TM781124 that you referenced may not be officially listed as a carry over to the 2017 Jeep Wrangler at this time (July 2017), but it uses the exact same connectors as the Hopkins kit part # HM56200 which is a confirmed fit so there is no reason it wouldn't work.

The Hopkins kit part # HM56200 is the better option though. It has a converter box in it that prevents the backfeeding of the voltage to the tow vehicle. So you will want the part # RM-690 diodes with the Trailermate kit.
