Tail light wire colors for 2003 Rubicon?

I'm trying to install LED tail light assemblies on my 03 Rubicon. Anyone know which wire goes to which bulb?

Also, is there some special relay or something that needs to be used for LEDs?

Scroll down this page. Your 2003 wires should be the same.

Use the link I added in my earlier post. It tells you what wire does what and what wires they'll connect to on your LED light harness. Be prepared to do an evap cannister relocation. It's simple, but it's another step.

OK I see in the article that this particular stock tail light has 4 wires, mine only has 3. There is like a purple (ish) wire, a black w/ yellow wire, and a black with red wire. Any clues? The purple (ish) wire seems to be running to the back up light. Oh yeah, I'm color blind, so those colors I've listed are only approximate. The wires on the Rugged Ridge LED tail Light are Green, Red, and Black.
