Trailer Wiring ????

I went to hook up a new 7 way trailer hook up when I found a large bundle of wires everywhere. Whoever owned the truck before me spliced the harness about 3 ways I think. I cut out a lot of the wires I thought were no longer needed. I noticed this one harness was all beat up. I put the multi-meter on it and only one wire was getting power from one end to another. Does anyone know where I can get a harness like this? I really don't want to try and re-wire this whole thing. Thanks, Josh

The left end goes to the Ford wiring harness. The right end goes into the back of the 7way. We have those in our store. Let me get a link.

Ford Replacement OEM Tow Package Wiring Harness, 7-Way Tow Ready Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring 118242
This isn't a bad one, but we have one better.
It has one female OEM connection, and then two connections going to two 7way sockets, so you can have one in bed, and one on bumper.
I'll look it at tomorrow and let you know.

I looked but can't find just the harness that goes from the truck to the 7 way hook up. I already bought a new hook up, I just need the harness to connect it. Any idea if you sell just that connecter alone?

Thanks

Let me see if I got this:
You have the trailer wiring harness on the truck, all the way back to the connector that goes with the one on the left. You don't have the harness like in the picture? That goes from the truck wiring to the 7way socket? And you do have the 7way socket with the connection like on the right?

Ha. Yes and Yes I just need the one that is in the picture. The previous owner spliced it all sorts of ways and it is not letting power go from one end to another. I would buy the whole kit but I bought the 7 way hookup awhile back and no longer have the reciet.

Gotcha.
We have the harness that's in the middle spot, like I said, that has the one OEM truck end, and TWO 7way socket plugs, like on the right, so you can have one in bed and one on bumper.
