Rear light wiring

Please help!!
I have been trying to run wires for a trailer by splicing into my rear lights. I cannot get everything to work. Running lights, brakes, blinkers. Does anyone know what each of the wires are by color, etc.?

I wonder were that dirt road goes?

I've done this at least 3 times now on YJs, but I'll be damned if I remember what the color codes are. I always tag into the wires on the drivers side of the tub, near the rear most rollbar upright. Right on top of the fender there are all the wires you're looking for. I just use a DC probe with a good point and tie in there.
