backup camera to tailight question

I installed a backup camera in my 04' and I am trying to figure out which is the reverse power wire to use as my signal wire for the camera. I am trying to run off the drivers side taillight. I'll try to add a pic of the wires. I'm sure someone has done this before?

Is it the same color up farther towards the cab? If it ran up in front of the firewall and possibly into the cab that would be the ideal place to tap into it. In my experience the farther back a wire is tapped into the sooner corrosion will disrupt that connection just from road grime and other things being kicked up. Worth looking into imo
