Is it Safe to Use Tail Light Isolation Diodes on a 2005 Jeep Wrangler TJ for Flat Towing


Is it safe to use diodes on lights of a 2005 tj wrangler? Someone told me to install seperate bulbs, as diodes may feed power back into the system.


Expert Reply:

Yes, it is safe to use diodes on your Jeep Wrangler. Diode Kits, like the Hopkins Tail Light Isolating Diode System, item # 38955, are designed to stop any power feed back onto the vehicles electrical system.

If it concerns you, and drilling a hole in the tail light housing is not an issue, you can definitely use a bulb kit on your TJ. Blue Ox recommends the Blue Ox Tail Light Wiring Kit, item # BX8869, along with the Blue Ox 4-Wire, Coiled Electrical Cord and plugs, item # BX8861.

I would also recommend using some Loctite Silicone Gasket Maker, item # LT37467, to seal around the bulb sockets after installation of a bulb and socket kit.
