Can I Wire an Optronics LED Off-Road Light Bar to a 4 Way Connector?

Question:

I purchased this and want to wire it so I can plug it into a 4 way hitch plug when I want to use it. I am going to run the hot wire to the running light wire and the ground to ground. Will this work? will i need anything else? Thanks,

You could connect the Optronics LED Off-Road Light Bar # UCL23CB to a 4 way connector like the 4-Pole Trailer End Connector # 18004 in order to allow you to receive power when it is plugged into the 4 way connector on your 2019 Jeep Cherokee, but there is no running light circuit on a 4 way connector so you'd likely need to use the tail light circuit in order to accomplish this.

With that being said, this really isn't going to be the best way to accomplish this. You would be much better served by wiring this directly to your vehicle and controlling it via a switch. I recommend using the Blazer Complete Relay Wiring Kit # MM510, which comes with all of the wiring you'll need to connect this light to your vehicle's head light circuit and install a switch to control the light. You can still mount this light just about anywhere on your 2019 Jeep Cherokee using this kit, it just allows you to use a different, more efficient way to power and control it.
