Tow Bar Wiring and Accessories Needed to Flat Tow a 2008 Jeep Wrangler


Will this part 38955 work on a 2008 Jeep wrangler or do I need to use a hy-power diode system?


Expert Reply:

There are several flat towing wiring options available for your 2008 Jeep Wrangler. I have included a link to them for you. Even though it is not listed, you could also use # 38955.

To keep a maintenance charge on the battery I recommend using a harness such as # BX88206 with the tow bar wiring you will be using so that you can run a wire from the connector at the front of the truck to the vehicle battery.

There are a couple of ways to do this. First, you can tap into the running light circuit in the tow bar wiring but to provide power to the battery the RV running lights would have to be on all the time. Or if the connector at the back of the RV has a working 12 volt circuit you could use that circuit instead.

Which ever way you choose you would just attach the wire to the appropriate corresponding pin at the back of the connector that will be at the front of the truck and the other end of that wire will go to the positive battery terminal.
