Flat tow... lights

Searched but can't locate an answer I flat tow my 2000 Cherokee behind my F250 that has slide-in camper. I am being "Told" that I can get a wiring harness that is plug and play. Currently I have Harbor Freight magnet mount lights for brakes and turn signal on towed Jeep. Just plugs into trailer plug on Truck. Works fine but I sometimes forget to put them on and even to take them off the Jeep.

Anybody know about a plug and play that allows me to just use the XJ's lights?

This isn't 100 percent plug 'n play, but it doesn't look terribly complicated to install and may meet your needs.
