As I mentioned, Curt now has a specific harness (PN 51527) for the JL/JT which makes this install a snap. Especially since Jeep hid a matching plug up under the dash as seen here.

Once you find it, you connect the OEM Jeep plug to the Curt plug. Then connect the Curt plug (after fiddling with the tiny pins and it’s assembly) to the Control Module. Hide that sucker under the dash and all that’s left is mounting the small brake controller knob wherever you like.

It’s nice being able to tow a modest sized camp trailer. AC is a nice thing in the South, and though I hate to pay to camp it opens up some neat locales and the family is happy about that.

Currently at Twin Lakes (Holly Lake) near DeFuniak Springs, Florida.

It’s all about balance ;)

Trailready Bumpers did a great job on this design. Steel winch tray. Between the frame rails, very strong attachment to the frame, and low as possible.

This one piece alone is MUCH stronger than the OEM plastic bumper I just removed and really ties the frame rails together.

Fog lights. The OEM’s are actually pretty decent, but this was a good time to do something a little more performance oriented. Here’s my custom harness adding the Baja Designs Squadron Pro Amber fogs to the factory circuit.

Testing the circuit before final bumper mounting ;)
