Brake lights on lightbar help

Hey guys, I got a lightbar for my truck and need help figuring out something. It has taillights on it and I need to find out where the best place to tag into the running/brake/turn signals. I don't want to run alot of excess wire and there has to be somewhere under the hood I can tie into. I need to tie into a running light, left turn, right turn and stop. Thanks!

Do you have a 4-pin / 7-pin tow connector on the back of your truck? You could tap in there.
If you don't you can tap the wires from each taillight.

Either way, a lot less wire running that way. Just a thought.

EDIT: Does the light bar have the 4-pin plug on it? If so, you can just plug it in.....if you have the connector.

no, its a full on roof mount emergency led lightbar. I could tag into the trailer harness but was trying to figure out a spot under the dash/hood. That way I wouldn't have to run wires all the way to the back of the truck.
