Is there a Quick Connector Trailer Wiring Harness Available for a 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Question:

do you have the quick t connector wiring kit for this vehicle??? how difficult is it to install?

Expert Reply:

The T-One wiring kit, item # 118425, is a quick T-connector kit that installs inline with the vehicle taillight wiring and does not require splicing into the vehicle factory wiring. This connector will provide a 4-Way trailer connector at the rear of your 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The hardest part about installing this wiring harness is accessing the wiring at the rear of the vehicle taillights.

We have a video of the # 118425 Harness being installed on a 2007 model which will be very similar to the installation on your 2011. A Mounting Bracket 4-Pole Flat, item # 18144 and a No-Drill Mount Bracket, item # 18140 are recommended to secure the connector at the rear of the vehicle.

If your 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee has the Tow Package installed from the factory but there is no 7-Way or 4-Way connector at the rear of the vehicle, see photos in instructions link, you can add a 4-Way connector, item # 118384, inline with the factory 7-way connector, located behind the rear bumper on the drivers side. This connector will provide trailer lighting for trailers with 4-Way connectors. You should check to see if the connector for this harness is there before using the # 118425 harness, because it is powered by the vehicle towing package and has its own separate circuitry from the vehicle tail lights.

If you have the factory tow package connector and no 7 or 4-Way connector you can also add both the 7 and 4-Way connector, item # 30955, to your vehicle.
