Default Wiring the high mount stop lamp on bed cap

Hi, I'm new to the forum. I have a 2007 regular cab Ranger, V6 5 speed. I'm looking for info on the best way to wire the high mount lamp correctly on the bed cap so it doesn't flash when the turn signals are used. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks for your reply. I found that link several days ago and spent about 2 hours under the truck looking for the described looms, connectors, pigtails, etc. That link refers to an F150. I couldn't find anything similar on my Ranger, and I never found the mint green wire tied back to a loom. I do see Rangers with bedcaps on them practically every day and most of them have functioning 3rd stop lites, so I'm sure there is a way to get it done. Thanks again for you attempt to help.

There is that posted above or running a wire all the way to the cab and tap into your current 3rd brake light.

Thanks to all for the help. I ordered the part from Flowmasters. I think it will be the easiest way to go.

3rd brake light wiring connector color codes from my own testing:

Green = red center positive
Black = red center negative

Black/Pink = white outer positive
Black = white outer negative
