Towing a Jeep Wrangler

Looking to see if they make an electrical (taillights-directionals-stoplight) plug and play kit to hook a 2000 Wrangler to a class c motorhome.Thanks
Mike

Look's like this would be the simplest. Any thoughts?

Do you want separate lights? Why not just use the lights already on the Jeep

Maybe this would work?

Bear with me on this, please. This will connect the lights on my jeep so I can tow it behind my motorhome?

Mike, I wouldn’t put magnet lights on if someone paid me to. The primary reason is, they look hokey and, you’ve got wires hanging all over the place, scratching paint, blowing in the wind, subject to chafing and more.
Not only that but, drivers following your Jeep, will subconsciously be looking for lighting signals from your regular Jeep tail lights.

The other suggestion was/is the wrong application. Those are for your Jeep to tow something, not be towed.

I have wired 8 Jeeps of our own and multiple ones for friends , to utilize the factory tail lights which include stop/turn and tail lighting.
All of the connections are done right by the drivers left calf. The entire lighting loom for the rear runs under the sill of the drivers door. It’s incredibly easy to tie into only three wires right there. Right turn/brake, left turn/brake and, running light wires are right there and easily teed into.
The most it would cost you is about $3-$4 for TWO diodes to be inserted at the appropriate position. You’d be done in about 15-20 minutes. PM me if you’d like help, be glad to.
Scott

This is the one I used on my Jeep. It is completely plug and play with no splicing or adding diodes.

Sorry I am super bad at searching, thought I found the correct one but yea, I listed a plug to pull a trailer with your Jeep and not pulling the Jeep behind the RV

The one chad listed is what you should do, not mess with extra lights

On Wrangelers prior to the JK it's usually pretty easy to just add an additional bulb socket inside the tail light housing. That keeps you from having to cut into the Jeep wiring at all.

The kit Thor 37 posted will accomplish that. Also, with that install there is no need for a brake light relay to keep the toad brakes from interfering with the motorhome lights.

That's the kit you need to use the Wrangler as a tow vehicle and supply lighting to the towed trailer. I thought the OP was looking for wiring to use the Jeep as a toad.

I ended up using the Hopkins plug & play kit but found out later I could have got a kit from Mopar that just plugs into the connection under the dash. Don't know much about it as it's too late for me.

I use both the jeep lights and magnetic. The magnetic sit on the cargo carrier in the jeep hitch.

Can't stop someone from hitting me, but I can make them better lit for the camera...
