Can the T-One Wiring Harness Be Used With the Hopkins Tail Light Wiring On a 2017 Jeep Wrangler


I have a 2017 Jeep Wrangler Sport JK. I ordered your Hopkins custom tail light wiring kit for towed vehicle # HM56200 to flat tow the Jeep. My Jeep did not have a tow hitch on the rear which I would like to add later. My question is would the T-one wiring harness # 118416 work with Hopkins HM56200 ? If not what would you recommend?

Yes, you can use both the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness part # 118416 and the Hopkins Custom Tail Light Wiring Kit part # HM56200 together on a 2017 Jeep Wrangler. The harnesses will simply plug into one another between the tail light and factory wiring harness. The only issue that has occurred in the past with this type of setup is reinstalling the tail lights because the connectors take up space but the good news is that there is a good amount of space behind the tail lights on a Jeep Wrangler so you should not have issues.

If you haven't already decided on a trailer hitch, the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # DT78MR is what I recommend because it has the longest receiver tube available which will help with clearance of the rear spare tire if you ever want to put a bike rack on. If just for towing, the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver part # e98856 will work well.
