Electrical issues..

Noticed that my Passenger rear Brake light blinks with blinker and brakes applied. While not applyed everything seems to function fine. and it is fine on drivers side. this thing was cobbled with previous owners wiring repair and i noticed a connector has a nice burn mark..

First check the ground at the fixture. Then go through the rest of them in the engine compartment and the other fixtures

I went and got a foot of wiring with the connectors from another jeep. Should i bother splicing in the new connectors first or check grounds? This connector looks like somebody put a cigarette to it and held it there for a min or two but none of the wires are burned up?

I would verify the grounds are good. I'm not criticizing your splicing technique(s), but it is a "seasoned" vehicle, with multiple owners and issues. (I don't liked the words "old and aged" too close to home). Do one thing at a time, check and verify. The symptoms don't seem to be a "voltage supply" problem, but more like there is too much current for the available ground(s) to handle. This "excess" current must find a way to ground, when it does, you get very interesting effects, dimly lit dome lights, dash lights even wayward brake lights, and rough engine idling. There are many posts with similar issues.
