Factory Wiring Harness for Hitch Tips?

I have ordered a factory harness from Amazon ($44 with shipping compared to the factory price of over $100!) and wondered if there were any tips or "don't do it this way, this is easier" ideas you all had. I plan on doing the install next weekend once the part gets here. Thanks everyone!

Not having done it the best thing I can recommend is to go to the Jeep parts site and download the installation instructions and review them. They'll probably come with the harness but at least you can get some forehand info.

Because the dealer has a map manufacture pricing they must follow

Is this the 7-pin harness or just the 4-pin. I need to add a trailer brake for a small travel trailer and may have to get this one from amazon.

Thanks

Just an FYI, that is NOT the part you think it is...if you search the part for the part number they show its just the simple cable and NOT the entire wiring harness, its $45 at most places and it says its for the KJ also.

It sounds like the four pin connector but it could be the pigtail that plugs into the harness. The harness comes with one of those attached already. I think I paid about $130 for mine. The instructions are very straightforward.

Here are the directions for the seven pin harness. It says Dodge Nitro but they're the same.

reading through and seen that you have the oem kit installed as well. do you hear a clicking noise comming from the black nylon sac in the drivers side tail light when you have your turn signal on or apply the brake? also do you have any idea why my reverse lights quit working? thanks
