Default 01 Tail Light Wiring Color Codes??

So, I broke down & got an 01 tail light wiring harness from my buddy Bird76Mojo (arrived today man, thanks!) but upon inspection, I noticed that the plug in connectors for the tail light bulbs are a very different shape than my 96 has or even the extra bulb holders I have... this isn't a big deal, I'll just trim off the original ones & graft on the others I have.
( I recently got a set of 01 tail lights from another member, Bird76Mojo posted his a couple days after I bought mine )

Question is.......

Which wire does what?!?

On one 3 wire connector I have Yellow, Gray & Black/Yellow stripe
On the other 3 wire connector I have Black/Yellow stripe, Gray & Purple
On the 2 wire connectors I have Brown/Yellow & Black/Yellow

I'm guessing the black/yellow is the ground, but does anyone know which of the other wires are the "major" & "minor" ie: brake, turn, etc.

I know I should just plug it in & test each wire, but I can't get my truck in the garage & it's too darn hot outside to be fooling around with this stuff.

Thanks for helping a lazy dude.

I know, I have several voltmeters & such...

It's just too darn hot to be outside getting ate up by mosquitoes.
