I used the Mopar wiring harness bought from my local dealer. About $90 a bit pricy but very easy install. Took about 20 minutes for me to install and includes a built in 6/4 wire adapter.

CTfrank did you use the wiring harness from chrysler that plugs in on the drivers side kick panel? Also when using brakes and turn signals at the same time how good do they blink? I just installed mine and when brakes are on turn signals do not flash very well.[:I]

Just and FYI, I am installing a hitch and looking at the wiring options. The factory wiring kit for a 2004 is like $139, but I found this kit for $55 at http://hitches4less.com/20ptcruis.html

I am going with the kit, as it includes a relay for the lights. Hope this helps the next guy,

Mike

To use a trailer, you need to purchased a Heavy Duty relay so it will operate the additional lights.

I found a T-Connector Assembly at RedTrailers.com for $50 plus $10 shipping. Have not yet ordered. I will check the site mentioned above first.

You cant beat OEM when it comes to accessories like this. the ease of install and actually being designed for the car makes any expense worth it.

I will definitely post a reply on the success of this assembly from RedTrailers.com. It is considerably cheaper than the $140 Mopar unit, but maybe I will get what I pay for.

Great success using a T-connector assembly from RedTrailers.com - PWP61041. $50 plus shipping of $10 (actually less shipping as I also ordered an assembly for my 2007 Town and Country). This includes a converter which is powered by 12 volts from the battery and acts as a relay thereby taking minimal power from the lighting circuit to run the trailer lights. We sliced the rubber grommets in the tail-light compartments to keep all wiring inside and put the converter in the compartment with the jack.

The hitch came from JC Whitney - Hidden Hitch for $120 with free shipping!

Altogether a rather successful endeavor for minimal outlay. Hope this helps someone.

Allen
