'94 F350 Taillight Wiring

I got a '94 F350 cab chassis and put a normal bed on it. I'm working on the tail lights now. It only has two wires back there since it had rectangular bolt on tail lights. The kind you see on trailers alot. How do I make that work with a regular 3157 tail light socket that has three wires?

My first thought is that those original light housings included a ground through the mounting bracket where a 3157 in the plastic lens housing had it through the plug.
I would probably just add the ground as finding a wire harness from a pickup box may not be all that easy.

Yup thats what it is. I dunno why that didn't occur to me. I had already done that for the reverse light.

Wiring harnesses from any E/F-150/250/350 and Bronco are all the same. I'm sure you could find a truck at the nearest U-Pull-It yard that will have everything ready to be removed. I would take the harness from the ground wire connections all the way back to the cab, and include the license plate lights if the truck is going on the road. If you can't find one, I have 3 Pick 'n' Nose yards and a pair of independent U-Pull-Its within short driving distance of me. If this is the case, PM me and we can hash out details.

Thanks for the offer but I just made my own. Once I understood what each wire did on the socket a light bulb went on in my head and I just got to work. I also had plenty of free wire to use. I work at a Chevy dealership and one of the techs I'm buddies with had just done a recall (go figure) that involved replacing a huge wiring harness. I asked him for the old one. Chopped it up and used it for what I needed
