Tow Bar Wiring that Bypasses Tail Light Wiring on a 2016 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk


will the Roadmaster 155 Taillight Wiring Kit work for my 2016 Cherokee trailhawk Id rather not cut into the wiring.


Expert Reply:

I checked with Roadmaster and the bulb and socket kit, # RM-155, is not recommended for your 2016 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk due to limited available space in the tail light housing for the bulbs. Another option that bypasses the vehicle wiring is to use a kit such as # RM-2120 if you have a horizontal surface to attach them.

This kit has a part of the bracket that you would close into the rear hatch which holds the lights in place. Or, to keep the lights off of the vehicle, you could use a set of magnetic lights, # RM-2120, with tow light partners # TLP01.

If your Cherokee has 4 wheel drive or the Active Drive II system, to maintain the vehicle's stable steering while being flat towed you will want to install the Mopar accessory kit 68321424AB, available from your Jeep dealer. This kit will prevent the Cherokee's steering from shaking while being flat towed.
