Park/Turn/Brake light hacking

Hello All,
I'm trying to figure out if I can tap into an output line on the TIPM (or other area if needed) in the front of the WK2 for the parking, turn and brake lights.

I'll be configuring my 2014 WK2 to be towed behind a motorhome and I'd rather tap in at the front of the jeep to save wiring all down the body.

For my 2012, I caved due to time constraints and ended up using diode blocks at the rear lights and running wire all the way back there.. I'd like to do it smarter this time.. I still plan to use the diode blocks to prevent back-feeding into the Jeep's electrical system, even though I expect that it's just going to an open relay in the TIPM and wouldn't really cause any problems.. better safe than sorry!

Any help with connector pinouts, wire colors, etc.. greatly appreciated!
