Installing 7-Way Trailer Connector in Bed of 2006 Dodge Ram


Do they make this setup in 5 feet insted of ten feet ? Or do they make wire extender for 2006 dodge 3500 4x4 factory plug too 7 way trailer plug, I have a 7 way trailer plug now in the bumper that needs to be relocated into bed ! the factory wires plug into the square reciever and plug into the back of 7 way trailer plug I was wondering if they make this wire set up ?

Hopkins offers a T-Connector type set up, part # HM42137 that would plug inline with the existing 7-way on your bumper and provide a 7-way in your truck bed. The wiring harness is 8 feet long, but any existing slack can be taken up and bundled up under the vehicle with zip ties.

Using the T-Type connector will allow a 7-way to remain at the rear bumper while adding one to the truck bed, which you would not have if you simply relocated the existing 7-way to the truck bed.

The HM42190 you referred to has a harness that is about 12 inches long. It would not be a good choice for installing a 7-way in your truck bed as the harness would be too short.
