What I really like too is that this kit is going to come with everything you need to get it completely installed.

From Tekonsha we have part number 118605, and from CURT, part number C56208.Now for those of you with a factory tow package, this is going to be a really nice choice to not only have the seven-pole on the back of your vehicle, but also get your four-pole.

Now, it's going to provide us with taillights, turn signals, and brake lights to make sure that everybody behind us knows that we're towing a trailer and we can stay within the law.Something you're going to like about this wiring is the fact that it's going to have a built in dust cover that's not going to come off, so we don't have to worry about losing it. We can actually use it to not only protect our connector, but also attach it to our hitch so our wiring's not just going to be hanging down dangling. Now that we've seen what it looks like and the final result, let's show you how to get it installed.To begin our installation, we're going to open up our rear hatch, and we're going to need to remove our taillights. Now, each one of our taillights is going to have two fasteners holding it in place, and we're going to need to grab a T30 torques bit to remove them.
