Default Which wire is the parking lights/headlights?

I'm trying to put cab lights on my ranger and I'm having trouble locating the parking light/headlight wire. I know it's behind the panel behind the light switch but what color is the wire so I can splice it and wire the wire that goes to the cab lights? I thought it was solid brown but I looked and I only saw one that looks tan. Could that one be it?

Should be 8 wires on the headlight switch.... blacks are ground. and you can use either the Light Blue/Red wire or the White/Black for parking light hot. I suggest using the White/Black one since the first one I listed is in the dimming circuit for the dash.
