3rd party, 3rd brake light wiring

Hello folks, trying to get my recon sticker and they say I need a 3rd brake light. Trying to install a generic brake light, got it all mounted but the wiring is the problem....can I wire directly to the left or right light wiring? Does it matter which side I tap into? Or is there somewhere else I should be connecting to. I also have a trailer, is there any way to plug into that connector to get the 3rd brake light to work?

There should be a connection right below your tailgate hinge; it should just look like two metal buttons. They make contact with two matching buttons on the tailgate when it is shut for the original brake light. This is for a Jeep TJ, not sure of the set up for other models.

Good luck, but if I were you I would just skip Recon and find someone who will pass your Jeep as is.
