Here is my truck, i wired the trailer up with lights for a realist touch, the trailer is part of a
Wal-Mart Model (most people use this one)For mine i use a triangular piece of plastic to make it turn better, look better, and for a place to incoprerate a plug for the lights. In order to make it the way i did on my titan is very easy, just do that same thing 2 times once the bumper to the piece of plastic , but use a short screw so it is tighter and doesn't wigle around, and then 1 more time the plastic to trailer.
