Default 3rd brake light for a cap

I put a cap on my ranger for the winter and i want to wire the 3rd brake light. I dont want to tap into one of the taillights and have it blink when that blinker is on. Is there a 3rd brake light wire like the fullsizes have? i cant seem to see one back behind the bumper.

I wish I still had my info on this. Some 04 and after had a wire you could tap into on the trail harness some didn't. I think it was a green wire. Otherwise you would have to run a wire all the way to the cab and tap into your 3rd brake light there.

Do you have the towing package with the trailer harness?

I do believe that Rangers without the towing package have the harness anyway...
