JWS LED Tail Light Wiring

Hi Everyone -
Lots of great info here from many of you that are smarter than I am so thanks for that.

I just installed JW Speaker LED Tail Lights on my 2015 JKU. Taking the stock tail lights out caused me to have to cut the power to my backup camera which was wired into the power to the reverse lamp on the stock tail lights.

Does anyone know which color wire is the power to the reverse lights in the JWS LED's?

Thanks for the help.

Look at you old taillight and see what wire the camera is connected top. Match it to the wire on the backside of the plug in the wiring harness. Tap it there.

$5 voltmeter will tell you, not familiar with those lights, but will answer your question.

Thanks guys, I was able to trace the wire in the harness...should have thought of that myself, so thank you.

Tried a voltmeter, but it was not reading anything through the wire insulation for some reason. Strange.

Did you use a pin to poke thru the insulation?

I'm pretty sure it's the white/gray wire.

Reverse is white/grey in the trunk area and white teal off the light socket itself
