You can purchase a wire harness assembly [converter] from U-Haul or other trailer supplier. They run about 18.00-32.00 dollars.

SOME U-Haul stores can install it for you for around 30 bucks labor. Most stores are booked and can't do just a wire job. I used to work there. There are full instructions inside the package if you do it yourself.

You will need 2 wheel ramps, unless you are super skinny, since you must run a hot wire from the battery to the converter box. This is not as difficult as it sounds, you will just get a bit dirty.

This installation will require that you remove your tail lights as you will be splicing your existing light wires to the converter.

>Never run a hot lead next to a fuel line or moving parts! It could cause an ignition!
>The wire will most likely be ran on the DRIVERS side.
>Don't for get to set the parking break and chock the wheels!

I would write a tut, but it this installation is dependent on your vehicle. Good Luck!

How do you hook up a trailer wiring harness on a 2002 Jeep Liberty?

Do not purchase a universal harness. Purchase an OEM type trailer harness for your ride and it will fit perfectly and be basically a plug in type. It will cost more but is worth it. The instructions that come with it will describe in detail the installation. The 2002 - 2005's are the same. hitches4less sells the OEM wiring harness. It is basically a plug-and-play installation. Unlike other harnesses, however, the liberty also has a ground wire and a "hot" wire from the converter. After plugging the harness into the exiting plugs, you have to ground the converter, and then run a hot wire (with an inline fuse) to the battery. This hot wire, as per mfgr. provide power to the trailer lights.
