After reading the posts on the installation procedure and problems associated with the Mopar wiring harness, I tought I would offer up the following. I opted for the Hopkins wiring kit over the Mopar for price and availability. Now I'm glad I did for ease of installation. I purchased this:
I have a 2014 JKU Sport and already have a wiring kit installed (plug in) to tow my boat with the Jeep. This unit was plug and play with no removal of body parts (except tail lights) or drilling required. The procedure is as follows:
1. Remove both rear tail lights.
2. Place the entire assembly inside of the driver side tail light cavity. Route the wires and the pair of plugs to the passenger side keeping the wires away from the exhaust.
3. Remove the rubber triangular plug in the bottom of the passenger side tail light cavity by pushing it up from the bottom with a hammer handle or something similar. (I had to remove some spray foam that was factory to remove this plate.
4. Unplug the Jeep wiring harness from the tail light and plug the Hopkins connectors inline.
5. Replace the rubber triangular cover and tail light.
6. Unplug the driver side Jeep wiring harness and connect the plugs from the Hopkins wiring kit. Route the 4 pin flat plug and wires down and out through the foam rubber cover and replace the driver side tail light.
7. I chose to route as much of these wires inside of the frame as possible. This was done using an electrician's fish tape and a pull string/wire. I have attached pictures of this part as some have done this by cutting off the 4 pin flat plug and splicing on after but this does not HAVE to be done.
8. I routed the wires up in the engine compartment keeping away from moving and hot parts on the driver side.
9. I did remove the grill for access to spots for cable ties to secure the wires but this could be done without doing so.
10. I mounted the plastic plug holder to the under sude of the bumber just outside of the driver side tow bar attachment point on the tow plate.
Finally, I connected the ground (white) wire from the Hopkins harness to the tow plate using the supplied self drilling screw and tucked and secured the excess wire up above the tow plate behind the bumper.
NOTE: I connected the plug to the motor coach before mounting the plug holder for testing. Everything worked as it was supposed to and no warning lights from the Jeep.
I don't mean to sway anyone's decision away from the Mopar wiring kit but wanted to be sure this was outhere. Happy Travels
