Trailer Wire harness Plug
#1
Just thought I would share this mod.
I have seen too many trailer wire harnesses ripped from beneath the bumper when off road, so I decided to mount mine through the bumper just to the left of my tag.

After wearing the teeth down on a couple 2 1/8" dia hole saws, I drilled a bunch of 3/16 holes close together all the way around the 2 1/8" dia until I could punch through. I filed the rough edge down using a round file. Then disassembled the factory 7 pin connector I bought at the stealership, trimmed off a few tabs on the back so it would fit flush, fed it through, and reassembled the plug. No process pics, sorry. But here is the finished product.

I wish it came like this from the factory, I busted mine while off roading.

Don't know what MDawg paid, but I paid about $55 for my OEM 7-pin kit.

Tooooo much, but didn't want to wait on or pay for shipping. Mine was $64 including tax and my supposed discount.

That looks way better then below the bumper. It should have come from the factory like that.. Good job.. This may be my next mini project.
