07 Ranger wiring question

Hello everyone
My wiring question about my 07 ford ranger is this. I am wiring the truck to be a toad. While doing some research learned I needed diodes to stop back current .
To avoid the diodes I thought I could do this . I went to the auto wreckers and picked a tail light harness. I then ran my wires from front of truck to rear and established which wires I needed and connected them to the new male end of plug .

So now at the rear of truck under bumper I have 2 male connectors and 1 female (female runs to tail lights) So when towing I connect to the plug running from coach and when using the truck I unhook plug and plug back in to factory male plug.

I have not tried it yet as I forgot to stop and get female 4 prong plug mount for front bumper I know it's a pain to crawl under the rear to change plug but only takes a few seconds.

Will this work ?

thanks HR-Pete

That will work pete and if you use a toad brake that presses the brake pedel that hook will also solve a problem with the brake lights, a real simple soulition for the toad lights.
