Wiring Diagram 2005 Rubi

I have to install light wiring and a braking system in my Rubicon so it can be flat towed behind my Motorhome. Does anyone have a wiring diagram for a 05 Rubicon that they could share with me? It would make my job much easier if I had one.

Thanks in Advance.

OK how about color codes for tail light wiring... I have a service manual for my 02 Sahara but the Rubicon has more options so I doubt if they are the same.

im not understanding exactly what you need but if you need basic trailer wiring you should go with a T-1 connector

Don't have a wiring diagram but I have wired my two of my Jeeps to flat tow. I just buy the ones from camping world that enables you to splice in the extra inputs from the tow rig. Basically two ins and one out with no back feed.

I either do the splice at the front dirver kick panel or where the wires go down behind the rear roll cage support. I use these from Camping World: http://www.campingworld.com/shopping...es-2-pk-/14631

Once you pull of the back light you see the color of wires you needto splice to. Just use one of those pointy circuit light/tester and you can verify the wire function.

I use the same diodes and in my 02 Sahara spliced them in at the kick panel. I will do the same for my Rubicon but the wire loom that runs to the back is larger than the one in my Sahara, acually quite a bit larger. I was just hoping someone could share a schemetic to make the job easier. I will hit up Ebay for a 05 service manuel while I wait for the powder coat shop to finish up my tow brackets.

I'm not looking to tow a trailer behind the Jeep but instead I'm flat towing my Jeep behind my Motorhome. I'm cutting into the Jeep's wiring so the Motorhome can control the Jeep's tail lights. Basicly the Jeep becomes a trailer itself.

This is what I'm trying to do. Here is pic of my rig at Big Horn National Park in WY. Well with the old Jeep anyway.

All you gotta do is take a standard connector for lights,
like that, and splice one on for each tail light, then ground it and one primary power I think? I forget what the last one is for. But anyways, you get the idea.

So start by probably undoing each taillight (I would assume??) and splice into it there, and figure out how to run the wire from there.

Yes, the mess of wire is alot bigger. I ended putting the splice in the back and jus ran one wire to the back. It was a lot easier unless you are a Chinese contortionist.

I wish it was that easy. I have to add diodes to protect the Jeeps lighting circuit. Otherwise when I jab on the brakes in the motorhome it will energize all of the circuitry in the Jeep. I just want to control the tail lights not the dash or other lights (front directional/ running lights). Plus I don't want to splice into the tail lights for two reasons 1) that is just a good place for corrosion to start and 2) don't feel it necessary to run wires from the tail lights all the way to the front bumper when the wires that I need are accessable at the dash board. Also my wiring is not a flat four the umbilical cable from the motorhome is a 6 connector. It also contains a battery charge and braking control wires. A flat four is just Right / Left directional, running lights, and ground.

THanks guys but I just downloaded a service manual for the 2005 from Tradebit.com for under $20. The PDF file has over 2600 pages of information that wiring diagram better be in there somewhere!
