Pigtail for 3rd brake light

I am looking at my options for a modified 3rd brake light. I was curious if anybody can tell me what type of connector the factory 3rd brake light wiring uses? I know that there is a connection where the wiring of the light hooks up to the wiring leading into the jeep.

What I am looking for is a pigtail/connector that I can wiring onto the alternate 3rd brake light I am thinking of using and allow me to easily disconnect it when getting the spare tire off. I know that I can use the disconnect the light comes with and then tap the wire from it onto the factory wiring. I would just like to avoid tapping the factory wiring if I can easily do it by putting the matching connector onto the alternate 3rd brake light wires.

The harness disconnects inside the tailgate and at the third brake light itself. You'll need to disassemble the tire to get to the third brake light connection. IIRC it's 4 screws.
