LED Light kit for Draw-Tite, Tow Ready, Pro Series, and Rola railed cargo carriers

Product Detail

Light Kit Installation


Insert grommet

Step 1

Mount rubber grommets on both sides of cargo carrier tray making sure grommets are seated securely.



Insert light

Step 2

Press tail lamps into grommets until seated securely on both sides of carrier tray.



Route plug

Step 3

Route plug with green wire under cargo carrier to the passenger side (right) and plug into cargo carrier tail lamp.

Route plug with yellow wire under cargo carrier to the driver side (left) and plug into cargo carrier tail lamp.



Secure wiring

Step 4

With supplied cable ties, secure all wiring to the bottom of the cargo carrier.



Please note: With the off-set Y-harness, one wire lead (about 3' long) is run straight to a light. The other lead (about 6' long) is run along the back edge of the carrier before it curves up to the second light. On the 40101 and 59502 cargo carriers, the wires come up through the carrier's mesh floor to attach to the back of the lights. On the Tow Ready carriers 63153 and 63155, the tighter mesh floor is not large enough for the plug to pass through. Therefore, run the wire leads under the platform to the lights, then up the front of the carrier and around to the back of the light. This also helps prevent the wires from getting pinched by the cargo. On vehicles where the 4-pole trailer connector is tucked under the vehicle, a 4-pole extension may be required to connect the two plugs. See related items.

Video Transcript for etrailer Hitch Cargo Carrier 98174LED Review

Speaker 1: Today we gonna take a look at the LED light kit for the Draw Tite Tow Ready Pro Series and Rola Railed Cargo Carriers. Now this LED light kit is designed to work on the Tow Ready, the Rola, the Pro Series, and the Draw Tite cargo carriers that have the integrated light brackets on it. Each light will feature 12 super bright powerful LEDs. Has a faceted mirror glean reflector that they're in for a nice bright superior look. Now LEDs are a lot brighter than conventional lights and you'll never have to replace a bulb again because they're 100% maintenance free.Now the harness that comes with to plug into your connector. It is 88-inches long.

The length of the wire for the driver's side portion is 46-inches. Now if additional wire length is needed, we do sell a 12-foot extension for installation. That's sold separately on our website. It's part number 9653P.Basically, it includes everything shown here on the table. The two lights, the two grommets, some cable ties, and the Y-wiring harness.

Basically what you want to do is on those cargo carriers, it'll have metal brackets, the shape of this. What you'll do is take this grommets, they're rubber grommets, push those and seat them into each side of the brackets on the cargo carrier. Once those are seated, then you just put your lights right into the grommets. It'll hold them into place. Push them right in there and then once those are all both attached, plug in your ...

Take your wiring harness, plug that into the back of the lights, and then you'll run your wiring harness underneath your cargo carrier. The cargo carrier's usually a mesh design so they include these cable ties that you can hook up the wiring as you run it back and then you'll just run this four way back to your plug in on your vehicle so then when you just plug it in, it'll give you the lights you need on your cargo carrier.That should do it for the review on the LED Light Kit for the Draw Tite Tow Ready Pro-Series and Rola Railed Cargo Carriers.

Per the other reviews, the lights do not fit snugly in the gasket. Nor does the gasket fit snugly in the frame. We will see this weekend if this a problem or not. Also, like the others the driver side wire is too short. Recommend product modifications to both carrier and lights. As for the function of the lights, they work great. 385182

This is the 5th one of these Rola carriers that I have owned over the past 9 years. I drive full size pick-ups with caps and drive a ton of miles for my business. These carriers are nearly always on my truck. I carry so many tools and equipment that this carrier is ideal for my overflow when going to a jobsite. This carrier is extremely heavy duty and durable and it has a nice look. I always order the LED light kit for the added safety feature of having lights actually on rear of carrier. I often have had strangers walk up to me and ask about these carriers as it is obvious how heavy duty they are built. The only issue that I have had is a cosmetic one. After about a year of continual use (especially due to road salts), the powder coat finish begins to suffer and then it begins to rust. However, I still have one of these in use that has been in constant weather for 4 years. Though it looks pretty rough it is still structurally sound. I actually am considering having this newest carrier sprayed with Line-X to help it to hold up to the excessive abuse that I put these through. I would highly recommend this product to anyone wanting a quality and heavy duty carrier. 339856

The LED light kit installed with little effort and looks great! Being our cargo basket will be fully filled, it is necessary to have a bright light kit for Overland Travels we take in North America. 72735


Comments

Patrick, still using very much. I tried to find recent pics of the rearRola HD rack, but not many. I did find the one attached which was takenjust prior to leaving for Overland Expo in Arizona. We are heavilyloaded down. The Rola rack has worked very well for us, including thelarge cargo bag. Just a note, there were NO tie down straps with thecargo bag. I use black bungee straps. Let me know how I might get someof the cargo straps for the bag I have.

Glad to hear the carrier is still hauling gear. We will be in touch about the straps, there are a few that might fit the bill.

The carrier I have is Erickson brand. The seller's pic shows no reflectors or lights. It came with reflective tape and I added the 4 orange round reflectors. Double stacking coolers and covering them with a tarp made the vehicle's [a Ford Explorer] lights hard to see at night. While the Erickson carrier doesn't seem to be set up for lights so I looked around at various options. A poster on another message board suggested the etrailer site. The 98174LED unit seemed like it would fit my needs. Pics of my innovated installation using zip ties. 1. As advertised by seller. 2. Carrier installed on vehicle. reflectors shown. 3. Left light installed 4. Inner pic of left light. 5. Pic of connection. The plug on the vehicle is somewhat corroded, so I purchased a short extension and plan to keep it permanently connected to the vehicle. 447484


Comments

I used the carrier just once on a hunting trip. The lights worked fine just as I wanted them to. I did put a tarp over the items in the carried but kept it tucked inside so it wouldnt obscure the lights. I had to cut the receptacle plug from the vehicle and splice in another one which I made from the short 18 extension.

The lights, I feel, are basically a mandatory addition. Without them, someone would easily plow into the carrier. I went with the LED and glad I did. They are extremely bright and clear. The rubber grommet fits loosely into the bracket on my Pro Series carrier but no worry, I used epoxy around the outside edges of the grommet, not the light! I would without hesitation give ETrailers five stars as their service and delivery was second to none. The lights themselves are really nice but only get four stars from me because of the harness length issue. One inch shorter and the driver side would not have made it. I would think with all of the notes about this issue, the company would care enough to add 6-12". Tells you something about the manufacturer. By the way, this light kit is on the larger 24" x 60" Pro Series carrier. It is used on a 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 Quad. Excellent carrier and ease of assembly. Have a torque wrench available. As I said though, ETrailer-excellent! I will be a return customer! Thanks! 55974

Super cool light. Easy to install. The plug in the back of the light would be better if they attached from side. Concerned the plug could get damaged when loading equipment as it sticks out quite a bit. We'll see. Fingers crossed. 407635

I had a plain old hitch hauler until someone decided to steal it. Naturally, I’ve needed it every day since. So I bought this new one from etrailer (a Rola, very sweeeet!) and saw where you could add some tail lights to it. They were very easy to install. They are very bright and make the hitch hauler look complete. Looks great day or night! They function as tail lights, brake lights, blinkers and emergency flashers. The only thing missing is backup (reverse) lights. The pin and lock work like they should. Everything was delivered within a couple of days. Very fast service and delivered what they promised! If I ever need anything related to or anything etrailer sells, I'm definitely going to give them first crack at the business. 68645

I used this with the bk70bb bracket kit to put on my Thule T2 bike rack. I was always worried about the expensive bikes on the back of the car when in traffic. The light kit makes brake lights visible and no worry of bikes blocking them any more. I used heavy duty outdoor double sided tape to mount brackets and lights to the rack. 413913


Comments

The kit is still working and is not used everyday. I only put the bike rack on the car when traveling with the bicycles. It has made me worry less about someone rear ending me with the bikes on the back of the car now that I have the brake lights and blinkers on the bike rack.

- 98174LED
by:

Only ok. The cable connecting the driver side light is too short to be installed in a manner I would have liked, which seems to be a common problem in reading the reviews. I ended up having to buy an extension wire to make it work, and the set up is still less than ideal. If E-trailer's servicenwasn't so great with all the other products I have purchased, I would have rated it less. 42835

This is the 2nd light kit we have ordered from etrailer.com--the first was damaged by vandals. The lights and assembly are well-made and easy to install. The LED lights are extremely bright, which adds to the security of our van when using the rear cargo carrier. But more impressive than the product was the service of etrailer.com--the kit was reasonably priced with free shipping and we received the product exactly two days after ordering it. AMAZING!! 111275

Good quality kit, bright LED LIGHTS. I made a Light Bar out of inch and a half PVC pipe. I notched the ends of the PVC pipe and epoxied the LED Lamps into the pipe. I mounted it on the back of my KUAT platform bike carrier. 86170

Attached the 98174LED light kit to a Curt Cargo Carrier using self tapping screws for the light mounting brackets and zip ties for the cables ... Also added a Hopkins coiled wire adapter to connect the light kit harness to my vehicle. Project turned out great! I now use the cargo carrier for moving my kids into/out of their college dorms. Makes for safe trips with the added visibility that the light kit adds. 493595

This is a review of the light package, not the hitch basket that it is made for. The basket itself is wonderful quality! The lights seem cheap though, and they move around a little too much in the opening on the basket. Also, as so many people have mentioned already, the harness is far too short to reach even the closest of trailer light plugs.... It took me a while to solder, tape, then shrink wrap 12 connections to extend the harness enough to reach the plug on my car... the harness needs to be almost a foot longer to work, prepare yourself for that. Whoever made this harness obviously never tried actually using it. Poor product quality control 271986

Very easy to assemble on cargo carrier 63153. It would be nice if the cables to the lights were the same length. Being the driver's side is shorter by 2-3 feet, it means you can't center the power plug over the receiver bar. This cable won't reach my newer vehicle (which has the power plug under the bumper) but it my older one has a 4-wire cable long enough to reach. 155247

All products bought from etrailer.com have been as advertised. All products purchased are excellent. Products purchased are, Blue ox tow receiver, 6 inch drop/rise. A very strong, well made product. Also, a set of LED tow lights, for my scooter carrier. A 'Quiet hitch lock', which ensures no movement in my hitch at all. Lastly, a hitch plug, a little bit of 'whimsy', many thanks to the reps., at etrailer.com, their knowledge and advice has been invaluable. 665943

Ready for the beach! Great product. Everything fit as expected. The only change I would make is the position of the LED light connections on the carrier because they stick out a little and I am thinking they might get bumped while full of cargo and traveling down the highway. I would recommend the product and look forward to using in the future. 546260

Received lights in perfect condition. Shipping was extremely fast. I just wished it came with flex tubing for the wires. I ended up buying some (10 ft) for $5 and wrapped the wires with it, zipped tied it and taped the ends. Looks very professional. Rubber seals for lights could be a little tighter but it works ok. 513107

very bright and a custom fit into my Pro Series cargo carrier; simply pressing them into place did not seem very secure so I chose to use some silicone sealant/adhesive for some extra grip. I chose also to purchase 10 feet of corrugated plastic wire protector at the Auto store and run the wiring through the hollow tubes of the platform support after cutting and splicing the wires in the harness. It makes for a much neater job than simply attaching the wires to the bottom of the carrier with the included black cable ties. It's nice to have lights on the carrier for visibility and this is a reasonably priced way to get there. 402412

I was quite impressed with this LED taillight kit. It installed easily without tools onto a new cargo carrier designed for these lights.

The first set of wire connectors broke while being adjusted. The problem was that the wire harness was short and after already attaching the wires I had to take it all apart to move the LED light so that the wire could reach. You just need to be certain that your placement is good and that you don't need to take the wires apart once they are attached. Had I known I would not have had a wire end break. These lights look good and are very bright. 373749

  • Recommended Lights to Increase Visibility on Hitch-Mounted Bike Rack

You will also need some self-tapping screws or drill and use the hardware of your choice to mount the brackets. This carrier does not come with a hitch pin and clip.

Measure from the center of the hitch pin hole back to the rear-most part of the vehicle, which is typically the back edge of the rear-mounted spare tire on a Jeep like your 2014 Wrangler. You can refer to the linked article for illustration of how to measure. The Curt hitch cargo carrier # C18153 will require 10-inches of clearance when folded up and 20-inches...

  • Are the Wesbar 108121 and Optronics # ST70RB Lights Interchangeable with Light Kit # 98174LED
  • Wesbar light 108121 is now a discontinued item but the Optronics # ST70RB is a direct replacement for it, and yes, this 6-1/2-inch oval 3-function light will work great as a replacement part for the cargo carrier lighting kit # 20174. For brighter light output and lower power demand you can change over to an LED-type lighting kit such as # 98174LED. LEDs do cost more than standard incandescent lights but they offer higher efficiency, brighter output and require no periodic bulb changes.

  • Best Hitch, Wiring, Bike Rack, & Cargo Carrier w/Lights Recommendation for a 2017 Chrysler Pacifica
  • Great news! I can help you with all those things for your 2017 Chrysler Pacifica. First let's start with a hitch for your vehicle. I recommend the 2 inch Class III Draw-Tite # 76046 hitch, because of its higher weight capacity. This 2 inch receiver hitch will be more compatible with accessories on the market. It is also compatible with the Limited, LX, and Touring models. For the wiring for the cargo carriers lights like the Pro Series # 63153 with LED light kit # 98174LED, you...

  • Tail Light Kit for a Curt Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier

  • Is a Light Kit Required When Using a Cargo Carrier Like the Curt # C18153
  • Adding a tail light kit to a cargo carrier like the 24x60 Curt Cargo Carrier # C18153 is a great idea for better visibility, but isn't required unless the cargo that you are carrying happens to cover your tail lights. If this is the case then I recommend using the Tail Light Kit # 98174LED, along with 2 Brackets # BK70BB using Self-Tapping Screws # FA1131822. This kit will plug into the 4-Way connector at the rear of your 2014 Honda Pilot. If you do not already have a 4-Way connector...

  • Difference Between Curt and Pro Series 24 by 60 Cargo Carriers
  • The Curt carrier part # C18153 is about 10 lbs heavier than the Pro Series part # 63153 that you referenced because it can fold up when not in use unlike the Pro Series. The biggest advantage to the Pro Series is tha you can install a light kit like the part # 98174LED pretty easily. However, most people tend to like the folding carriers so the Curt would most likely be the one you would like more.

  • Lights And Accessories for Using Curt # C18153 Cargo Carrier on 2014 Chevy Suburban
  • The only difference between the two anti-rattle hitch locks you referenced is that the # 63232 is for 2 inch receivers and the # SHP2040-XL is for 2-1/2 inch receivers. Since your Suburban has the 2 inch receiver, you'd need the # 63232. If the 4 pole on your Suburban is fixed in place on the bumper, I'd recommend the # 9653P extension. The Curt # C18153 you're referring to isn't specifically designed for a light kit, so they're aren't any pre-drilled holes on the carrier to mount...

  • Compatibility of Rola Cargo Carrier LED Lamp Kit # 59516 with Pro Series # 63153 Cargo Carrier
  • The Rola LED light kit you referenced, part # 59516 is indeed compatible with the Pro Series # 63153 cargo carrier. There is also the # 98174LED lamp kit that would also work, but I personally prefer the Rola Kit due to its heavier-duty wiring harness and connectors. Either light kit is also compatible with the # 59502, 59507, 59550, 63154 and 63155 cargo carriers. I have linked you to some product demonstration videos that you might find helpful.

Since you have the wagon model of the 1995 Buick Roadmaster, you would first need to install Tow Ready Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring, # C55352. For cargo carrier, # 63155, you can use light kit # 20174.

The lights of this kit are considered submersible meaning they are waterproof.
