How to Install a Trailer Wiring Harness on a 2011 Jeep Wrangler


Today on this 2011 Jeep Wrangler were going to install part number 118416 from Tow Ready. This is our T1 wiring harness. The first thing we need to do is go ahead and remove the taillight on the drivers side. There are two screws we have to remove and then the light can be detached from the vehicle. Next well disconnect the wire harness from the light. Theres a small tab we have to push down and then you can pull it apart.

Now well go ahead and start installing the wiring harness. Well take the four pole end and run it through the opening where the taillight used to be, and then well run it out the bottom. If you look closely you can see this pole going down toward the outside past the foam thats lying at the bottom of the body work. Well run our four pole wire out there, and then well go ahead and connect it to the factory wiring harness Next well go ahead and pull the white wire away from the wire harness a little bit to give it some extra slack, and well go ahead and attach it to the sheet metal on the inside of the vehicle. Now well be using a right angle drill to accomplish this.

Now Ill go ahead and connect the wire harness to the taillight, and then reinstall the taillight. Next well go underneath the vehicle and route the wire over to the hitch. Well go over the bumper bracket and then down toward the hitch. Next well go ahead and use some loom clamps to help hold the wire up and out of the way. Were using part number A0500.

With that, that will finish it for our install of part number 118416 from Tow Ready on our 2011 Jeep Wrangler.
