Little wiring issue

I just got done cutting out the holes for my flush mount led lights but I've hit a little snag in the wiring. I have a 3 wire pig tail coming out of both driver and pass side of the jeep. I wired it up and have brake and turn working on both sides, but no tail lights. I figured out the wire I ran for the tail lights is actually the power wire for reverse. When I throw it into reverse the tail lights come on. So my question is, What wire do I use for tail lights.? One wire is for ground, one is for brake and turn, and the last goes to the reverse light. Then I'm out of wires. Any ideas?
