Check Vehicle Fit

A CURT custom original equipment vehicle-to-trailer connector (sometimes called a T-connector) is a simple, plug-and-play electrical device that eliminates the need for cutting, splicing and soldering when installing vehicle-to-trailer wiring.Most vehicles do not come ready to tow. Unless your vehicle has a towing package, it is probably not equipped with a trailer wiring connector. This is where CURT's OE vehicle-to-trailer connectors come into play. A custom wiring connector uses a single original equipment plug to plug into a special socket provided by your vehicle. Though this option is not available on every vehicle, some automotive manufacturers design their vehicles to be easily equipped for towing by supplying a socket, integrated into the vehicle's electrical system, to readily accept a custom wiring connector. With a CURT custom OE connector, there is no need to tap into the taillight assembly because a special socket is already provided.This custom original equipment vehicle-to-trailer wiring connector provides a 4-way flat connector socket and is designed to be a custom wiring option for certain models of Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Dodge, Ford, GMC, Hummer, Infiniti, Jeep, Nissan, Ram and Saturn (to verify your vehicle compatibility, see the CURT application guide at CURT custom vehicle-to-trailer wiring connectors are designed to be long-lasting and simple to install. They come with dust covers to keep your connector clean when not in use and feature a one-year limited warranty to give you peace of mind.

      I'm happy to help, Glenn! If your vehicle does not already have a brake controller installed, you do need a separate trailer brake controller.
