1995 Yj Rio Grande Tail Light Harness Write up.

Today i installed a 4 flat trailer light wiring system for my 95 wrangler.

I didnt find i single one that had the same wire colors and the manual had different wire colors for some reason. so i went out and decided to figure it out myself with a meter and stuff.
in the end i got it all working right and perfect.
i used 3 14-18G wire crimp ons (the blue ones) and a sheet metal screw

the wires for the brakes run on the driver side where the tub meets the roof. i used those wires and right in the corner by the roll bar i took all the tape and wrap off the wires so i could see them. i connected the harness to the jeep wires.

Jeep-----------------------------------------Trailer harness

Grey wire with red stripe------------------ Green Wire (Right Blinker)
Green wire with reddish stripe------------ Yellow wire (left Blinker)
Purple wire with black stripe-------------- Brown Wire (Tail / Marker)

and i used a punch to make a small hole for a sheet metal screw to screw in the white ground wire to the tub.

-Jrod

ill post pics here soon tonight of what i did and how it looks.

Good for you. Too many bone heads here ask all sort of "I'm an idiot, please help." questions. It's nice to see a newer Jeeper dig into the problem on his own and get it done.

We can use the TJ wiring harness on our 95s. Its plig in play. It has a pig tail the clips to our factory harness. 20 $ at u haul and very nice and well made. No splicing needed. Congrats on the sucessdful work though. Its always nice to see the new guys diving in

Good to know, where does it plug in line? Curious where the wires come out. One big advantage of wiring the harness inside the tub is that the plug always looks good. I did mine like that on the last Jeep and 10 years later it still looked great! In fact, I may just cut it out of the old (now parts Jeep) and install it in the new 95 Rio.

It plugs in behind the tail lights. From the outside you stick your hand behind the rear corner there is a plastic peice You can flex out of the way so You don't need tools. Mines been on 2 years and sees a lot of mud and still works and looks great

Thanks! The problem we have here in the northeast is the salt damage to the trailer end of the plug.

And you just reminded me that I forgot to put that shield back in place afer doing the TJ filler mod a few weeks back! Now where did I put that thing....
