08 JK trailer light plug

Anyone noticed that the flat 4 connector trailer plug that comes mounted on the 08 JK unlimiteds won't fit with a standard 4 connector plug. Local auto parts said its a special order item from jeep. I checked with my dealer ,he had no idea about the size difference til he checked the computer should have one in a few days

I modified my trailer plug 7-pin setup, by getting the 4-pin plug kit from U-HAUL

Back in my XJ days, I had an aftermarket hitch put on by a shop out here - well, the bum ended up getting that goofy 4-pin connector. I ended up going to Autozone and getting a 4-pin connector, butchering it (wiring is all correct, you just have to separate the ground from the positive terminals) and building an adapter to the normal 4-pin.

Worked out pretty good.

I got the correct plug from jeep,and made a pigtail with a normal size plug so I didn't have to change all my trailers to the weird sized plug
