Looking for 'Diode' method for tail lights...

I just picked up my 'new' 2008 Jeep GC Limited and I need to set it up for towing.
I want to set up my tail lights so I can just plug in my 4 connector to my MH and the tail lights will work with the MH.

I know there are diodes involved and some wireing involved.

SO, can anyone point me to a write-up or give me instructions of how to do this?

I know there is a lot of info in this forum and it has NEVER failed me in the past.

Thanks for your time and consideration.


PS: I DO NOT want to go through the magnetic lights for a Jeep that is this nice.
Less to carry with me, also.

biggest issue is if the wiring in your MH matches your WK.

08 WK has the brake and blink signal all in one wire. then a park wire and a ground. its called a 2 wire system.
Does your MH have the same wires.......if it has the brake and the blink seperate then besides diodes you need a box to break up that signal.

they sell boxes that do it but you need to know if you NEED it.

There are kits available to do this. Most RV places should be able to help you out. Here is an example: http://www.etrailer.com/Tow-Bar-Wiri...ins/38955.html
