I have a 2021 JTRD with the LED and BSM (Blind Spot Monitoring System), and was trying to plug in the Curt 59864 flat-tow wiring harness which is supposed to be plug-and-play. Unfortunately it looks like my plug is different?

I was wondering if anyone knew if there was a difference between the wiring harness/plugs for the LED Tail Lights with BSM vs LED without BSM??? Can you please post pictures of the LED w/o BSM connectors?

Attached is a picture of my LED Tail light connector vs the Curt connector- mine is the black connector which only has 1 row vs the Curt which has 2 rows:

You will need to contact Curt. They show the 58964 as compatible with all 2020/21 Gladiator models. I'm guessing it is only compatible with standard bulb taillights, not LED lights.

I tried emailing/contacting them thru their website but no reply yet. On Amazon- others with LED lights says theirs have worked with the 58964 without issue. If they don't reply, maybe I can just ask the Jeep Dealership/Service Department if they know if there are any differences.

Maybe you got a different harness in a 58964 package.

Your setup is going to weigh well over 5,000lbs. with fuel. Heck, it’s over 5,000 without fuel.
Please be sure your tow rig is rated to handle it.
Be safe.

I'd call them. They're swamped and short handed.

Hello, we can chime in here. All the Gladiators use the same tail light connector its a 12 Pin Molex MX-150 connector.

What you have in your hand in the photo if the sensor connector. Plug that back in and unplug the main tail light harness.

Here, if you fast forward to 1:20 here you can see what we are referring to;

:LOL:

It’s ok, OP. We’ve all been there, missing something obvious. Can I get an Amen?
