tail light wiring connectors

Where can I get the weatherproof connectors for the taillights/reverse/brake lights? I was just going to use bullet connectors, but I decided not to create problems for myself. Jeep has a non-terminated Painless harness and I bought it that way, so I have no source for the original connectors.

Painless sells a "weather pack" 3 pin connector for about $10 each. Is that pretty much the same thing?

Doesn't have to be 'Weather Proof', just pack it with dielectric grease BEFORE you plug things in and let the excess 'Squish' out, wipe off and you are done for about 5 years or so.

I also don't use connectors in the back, since I don't like servicing the connectors.

Hard wire, solder, then slip GLUE LINED heat shrink tubing over the splice.
Seals the connector up as good as new and you don't have problems after the 'Hot Glue' sets up!
