Picking up a new 2021 Laramie next week--I plan to move my existing cap from my 2016 Ram over to the new truck, and thought I'd tackle the wiring myself. Does anyone know if:
1. the 5th gen has the purple/white wire pigtail from the brake harness to connect the 3rd brake light?
2. anyone have a wiring schematic for the tailgate harness? my existing truck lock/unlock is tied into this harness, but it looks like both lock and unlock tee into wires that look green/white. would be nice to get it right the first time...

Any help would be much appreciated.

Did you ever find that white purple pigtail wire for 3rd brake light? I dropped the spare and have run my hand along the trailer wiring that’s bundled and taped up in a plastic flexible wire harness tube, but I can’t seem to find the white purple wire lead to connect a 3rd brake light I want to add to my bed rack cargo bar on a 2022 Ram 1500. Where is that wire?

Usually they wrap unused wires inside of the tape wrap
find the fattest tape wrap & you will find the unconnected wires in there

I think that i read that the fat wrap is back by the drivers side tail light

i can't help but think that i also once read that a interior light for a camper shell could be found above the spare tire, near the bumper

third brake light that the Ram trucks have. That wire on my truck is a Wht/Purp wire near the spare tire, written by a forum member

wish you luck
