Plug n play trailer wiring

Hi Jeep CJ buffs. I would please like to know if anyone has information on a plug-n-play, prefab, trailer wiring connector (3 female, 1 male) that plugs right into 1976-1987 CJ tailight wiring that eliminates the need to bare/splice the wires. These off-the-shelf connectors are readily available for newer trucks/SUVs, but I haven't found such a product for 1976-1987 CJs. My Jeep is a 1981 CJ5.
Thank you,
Tim

There isn't one that I have found. Maybe go to a NAPA, or somewhere that deals with heavy trucks, and see if they have the connectors that you have on your rig, then make one up using a generic trailer pigtail. Solder and heat shrink the splices. This is what I did with mine, only mine has an aftermarket harness that uses Weatherpak connectors. I had to find the plastic housings, the pins, seals, and crimpers. This was $$$ to make mine, because Weatherpak is expensive on parts.

not what you want but when I rewired mine I mounted this on top of driver's fender. It's all the wires going to the rear. Then when I did the tail lights, b/u lites, trailer lights, etc, I simply ran the wiring off the back side. everything clean, out of the way, and done from the top. Any changes/additions you care to make takes a screwdriver.
When I did my 4 pin harness it took 45 minutes and a soldering gun to attach 4 ring terminals.
Sorry to hijack....

If it's good TO you, it's gotta be good FOR you....

Now that is slick! Nice idea. I think I may have an idea on how to connect /disconnect the plow lighting on mine. I think that would be better than a couple 6-pin trailer plugs/sockets!
