Default Jeraco Cap - Truck Wiring Hook Up

I picked up a used Jeraco cap for my 2001 Ranger this evening. The seller told me the truck was already wired to accept the 3rd brake light and interior cap light harness. I'm not certain he knew what he was saying so I'm asking for some help. Does the brake / tail light harness already have an accessory plug in place from the Ford factory or do I need to buy and install one. If I need to buy and install.....where can I locate one and is it all that difficult. My son is busting my chops to install the cap but I don't want to until I have the brake light working......any suggestions? Thanks for any help you can offer.

NO, it does not.. i hard wired mine into my brake light harness. as for the interior light, i ran a hot wire bac from my fuse box under the hood, put an inline fuse on it and grounded it to the frame. i also used insulated spade connectors so i can disconnect everything when i take the cap off.

I just put an ARE cap on my 2002 ranger and the third brake light has 2 black wires coming off of it. What wires on the back of my tail light do I wire these into?
