You could grab them from the trailer harness or from the driver's frame rail where the wires run towards the back. Just make sure that you heat shrink all your connections. If you get me the year and model I can get you the wire colors to look for.

Just don't start poking holes in wires. If you do you will end up with corroded wires if you don't seal them back up.

Amen to that! Heat-shrink tubing is your best friend with exposed wiring!!!
