Default Wiring for trailer lights.

I have a 1996 Cherokee Sport w/o the towing package. I bought this kit (http://www.cseoffroad.com/48205.html) and am trying to install it today. Where do I connect it to the stock wiring harness?

open the drivers side rear interior panel (behind the spare tire if you have one) you should see a black box thats runs to your drivers tail light and also runs up your D-pillar.. i'm pretty sure you tap the wires in before the black box...... make sure you sync up the correct wires for the turn signals so your vehicle is matching your trailer lights (blinker side wise)
it would suck if you wired it so the vehicle blinks left and the trailer blinks right LMAO

I was driving behind a vehicle with a trailer that did that. It was really confusing when the right turn signal came on but there was nowhere to turn right. When they turned left I couldn't help but laugh.

It's definitely a good idea to check to make sure they're right before you start driving.
