I bought a new harness for my comanche, and its different than my factory one. only thing I can think of is my jeep doesn't have factory trailer wiring and the harness does. Does anyone have a diagram of both harnesses so I could merge the two?

The only difference should be between Renix and HO MJ's where I believe they simply have a different connector. So far as I know, which may not be far at all, any trailer harness had to be spliced into the factory harness. Can u post details of the truck you got the harness from and the truck u want to put it into? perhaps a pic? also you can find the info u need here: http://comancheclub....=trailer wiring

There's your problem, Chrysler changed the plug for the tail light harness  when they switched to the HO. You should be able to swap the plug on the rear harness side if you like or someone may sell you a tail light harness with the correct plug. There is a 91 in my local JY now. If you want I can snatch either the whole harness or just the plug for the tail light side the next time I'm there. PM me if you want to go that route.

as long as the color codes are the same between the years, i can swap them. i've already got the bed off and ready to install my straight one. and the donor wasnt factory trailer wiring. it was a really clean and good wiring job.

for future reference,

 

HO tail light wiring:

Black - ground

Brown/Green - back up lights

Blue/Red - running lights (parking)

pink (salmon) - brake & right turn signal

Green - brake & left turn signal

 

Renix taillight wiring:

Brown: Right turn and brake light
Black: Ground
Blue: Tail (parking) lights
Brown with white tracer: Backup light
Grey with black tracer: Left turn and brake light

 

 

so renix to HO plug convertion would go as such:

Black - black

Brown/Green - brown/white

Blue/Red - blue

Pink - brown

Green - grey/black

are you going to hardwire in the harness or do you also have the rear harness side of the plug to change over?

oh good, as you can probably tell hard wiring the tail light harness to the rear harness would make bed removal problematic.
