Today we will be installing Roadmaster universal wiring kit, RM-154, on a 2004 Jeep Liberty. Our first step is going to be to mount this small bracket here in the front of the vehicle that we are going to tie the front end off so it will be accessible when attaching to your motor home. This is a self-threading bolt. It may be slightly difficult to get started but once you do it gets much easier. Our bracket is mounted. I am going to zip-tie my front connector off to it and begin the routing of my wire to the rear of the vehicle. You can see our wire coming up over the axle now. We are going to use these two rear mounting holes. We are going to zip-tie off the rear leader going to our taillights. Now that we have our wire feed run to the rear of the vehicle, what we need to do is remove the taillight lenses in order to splice our wire in. The first step is going to be open the rear hatch of the vehicle and remove the ports bit screws so that we can remove the lenses. Alright, now that we have our screws removed, we can pop our taillight lens out. I even like to go ahead and disconnect my hold-down and then go ahead and disconnect the harness so I can set the taillight lens out of the way. Our harness plug has a locking tab that will have to be pushed up. Then press on your tab to remove your harness. I am going to repeat the same steps on the driver side. 1:46
At this time, we are going to go ahead and separate our green wire from our four wire lead because it is going to route directly to the passenger side taillights. Once I have completed that, I can take my three wire piece. Feed it up through the corner of the bumper support and fascia. Pull it out through the driver taillight lens hole. This is where we are going to be making our connections with our diodes to connect our new harness. At this time, I am going to go ahead and run my ground screw so that I can use it for ground on my tester. Using my tester, I identified that the brown wire with the yellow tracer is my running light circuit. At this point, I am going to go ahead and cut it and my diode in line with my new wiring harness. You can see we have our wires stripped back here. We will need plenty of wire to make a good connection. We are going to go ahead and install our end terminals that will go in to our diode. Alright, once you have your end connector crimped on make sure you give it a couple of tugs to make sure it has a solid connection. Now we are going to repeat that same process on our other two brown wires, the one with the yellow tracer and our new lead coming in from our new harness. 3:20
At this time, what I am doing is stripping away the three wires because I need just the brown wire that is going to attach with our new harness coming in. We are basically reattaching the same wire we cut off the extra and we are going to route that to our passenger side, along with the green wire that we stripped back earlier. We have our wires crimped down. Let us give it a tug. Make sure we have a good connection. At this time we can go ahead and install our diode. You will notice that it has two inlets and one output. The output is going to be the one that goes to our plug on our taillight. Let us go ahead and make that connection now. And then clearly both inputs will be the manufacturer harness and our additional new harness that we are setting up. And that is the installation of our first diode. We have tested and discovered that our white wire with a brown tracer is going to be our brake light signal. Again, we are going to cut it and a diode just like we did with our last running light. At this time I am installing our ground wire. We are going to use the hole I created earlier for our tester lead. Now we have our ground wire installed. At this time I am just dressing my harness back up, using a little tape to secure it. And then we can reinstall our taillight. 4:56
Now we are going to be taking our green and brown wire and routing them over to the passenger side and then going up to the passenger side taillight. As you can see here, we have gone ahead and pulled our wire back up, through our bumper fascia, to our taillight area. Now what we are going to do is go ahead and locate our running lights and brake light, connect our diodes and our passenger side will be complete, which is basically the same process that we have already done on the driver side. On the passenger side, we have identified that our running light is going to be this green with the yellow tracer. We are going to connect that to the brown lead. That completes our running light diode installation on the passenger side. So we will be using the white wire with the brown tracer as our brake light signal. As you can see now we have our fourth and final diode in place. Just wrap our wire back up with some electrical tape and we will be able to reinstall that passenger side taillight lens. And that completes the installation of our Roadmaster universal wiring kit, RM-154.
Today on our 2012 Jeep Liberty well be test fitting the Blue Ox Aventa LX Tow Bar, part number bx7445. With the Blue Ox Aventa Tow Bar hookup is a snap with the heavy duty swivel tow bar. The durable ball and socket joint provides a superior flex so you can easily connect even on unlevel ground. The tow bar lets you tow your vehicle safely and securely behind the motorhome. Our self-aligning arms are also protected with rubber boots to keep the dirt and grime off of the arms protecting the seals. With a durable steel construction and included safety cables, this product is made in the USA and comes with a three year warranty.
Today on this 2002 Jeep Liberty Sport were going to install product number RM-8700 from Roadmaster. This is their InvisiBrake Kit. Alright, first thing we do is figure out where we're going to install pulley and then air cylinder and plus this cable will activate it so we want to keep the bins as little as possible in the cable. So were actually going to hide it underneath the threshold going across here and also by the back seat. So we'll just pop up this threshold here. We're going to lay out our air cylinder in this area right here.
Today on this 2002 Jeep Liberty we are going to install Base Plate from Roadmaster, part number 521423-1 from Roadmaster. What we have done so far is remove the front wheels, now you dont have to do this, but it makes the install a little bit easier to get behind to the fasteners in the wheel well. We are going to start from the top and work our way down. Work at the top of the grill and remove the fasteners to take out the grill and then we will start working on the bumper cover. There are four fasteners on the top, here, here, here, and here will start with. And there will be 6 plastic fasteners we have to remove at the top edge of the bumper cover.
Today on this 2011 Jeep Liberty, we are going to install part number 48955. First off, what we are going to do for our wire harness is find a spot where we are going to locate the 4-pole end. And you can do it anywhere you want. We are going to actually run it to the center on this vehicle right here for now. Put it over this pin. And then we will go ahead and start routing our cable from the front of the vehicle all of the way back. Just stay away from anything moving, like the suspension components, or anything hot, like the exhaust. OK, we will take our ground wire with the ring terminal and we will run it straight to the frame. We will go ahead and show you how we routed our wire. Above the sub-frame there is a piece of tubing that goes all of the way across the suspension. So we actually thread it through from the front to the rear. It is actually easier to see from the back side right here. And then we were able to run it through the frame, using the wire pull. We were able to go all of the way out to the back of the vehicle. We were also able to route it through the back cross member. Our green and brown wires go over to the passenger side of our vehicle. And our yellow and brown wires will go over to the driver side. 1:02
Today we are going to show you part number RM-576 from Roadmaster. This is their Sterling All Terrain tow bar. We will be installing this on a 2006 Jeep Liberty. Our Jeep here already has the base plates installed so we are going to concentrate on the tow bar. We have got the parts laid out in the order of assembly. Starting off with these two pieces right here, these are the adapter parts that go to your face plate that is mounted on your vehicle which allows you to connect this cross bar to the base plates and then to this cross bar the sterling all terrain tow bar mounts to it. Start with the brackets that are listed for the driver side and passenger side of a car. This will get mounted up like this and then the bracket for the safety chains is going to get mounted on the bottom like this. Go ahead and bolt up these two halves and put the assembly on to the tow bar bracket. 01:00
