Wiring Options for a Brake Controller on a 2018 Jeep JL Wrangler Unlimited Without Tow Package


my jeep jl doesnt have the factory trailer package and has led lights so there is no 12volt on the brake pedal. so how can i hook up a brake controller?

Since your 2018 Jeep JL Wrangler Unlimited doesn't have the factory tow package you will need to start off with 4-Way wiring like the recommended Tekonsha T-One # 118786. Once you have that installed there are a few options for you.

You can either install the 7-Way RV Upgrade Kit # ETBC7L which only adds 12V power to the 7-Way and allows you to use the Curt Echo # C51180 brake controller with an Apple or Android smart device, or you can install the Universal Installation Kit # ETBC7 for a fully functional 7-Way and then use the Stop Light Switch Kit # RM-751490 to get the stop light signal for a more traditional brake controller like the Prodigy P3 # 90195.

Either way, I have attached some sample videos for you to check out. The one for the Prodigy P3 shows the ETBC7 kit being installed as well.
