Lighting Options for Flat-Towing 1997 Jeep Wrangler With a Truck


I want to tow my 1997 Jeep Wrangler with my truck and want to use my Jeep tail lights through my truck trailer wiring. I am looking for a wiring kit I can plug into the Jeep that is ease to install. Thanks.

There are several options for lighting kits to allow flat-towing a vehicle. These range from the easiest-to-install and remove magnetic types, to independent bulb-and-socket kits that bypass the dinghy's wiring to hard-wired diode kits that require cutting into the dinghy's wiring.

For ease of installation the magnetic type will be preferred as these require no alternation of the towed vehicle; they are also a cost-effective option.

For example, Optronics offers their # TLL21RK 20-Foot Wiring Kit that includes a 4-pole flat connector and two 4-inch-diameter lights. For reference all wiring options for your 1997 Wrangler are linked along with a helpful article on flat towing.
