96 Tail light wiring schematic/color code??

Does anyone have these handy or know where I can get it? I need to know the color code for the wiring going to the rear harness for the tail lights/license plate lights. Most importantly:

R turn signal
L turn signal
running lights
brake lights
reverse lights
plate lights

and any corresponding grounds

I just have the shop manuals for the 2002. I figured that would put him in the right direction, if they are different he can ask again. That's why I put the 2002(pickup) at the top.

Re: 96 Tail light wiring schematic/color code??

I'd really like to know the same for a 2000 S10 pickup 5-speed. Mostly I would like to tap into the reverse wire and mount a small light on my bumper that comes on only when I put the truck in Reverse. Is that possible?
