Need Help with Alternating turn signal

I just installed lights in the grille of my 1st gen 2000 tacoma. I want the raptor light mod which is what I am working on. Now what I would like to do is have the left side grille light alternate with the turn signals and have alternating turn signals. I also want all 3 grille lights to act as marker light until I hit my turn signal. Then outside light alternates with the turn signal. The problem I have with using the alternating turn signal method is it only works with the marker lights on if I am reading this correctly. What I am looking for it the outside lights on the grille to alternate regardless if the marker lights are on or not.

I'm not too sure how you have your raptor style lights set up. I am no electrical engineer, bu what would make sense to me is to...

1. have your raptor lights wired so they are like the switchback mod
OR
2. somehow manage 2 hot wires into the LEDs. (insert electrical engineer here)

i want to do something similar. what we need to do is add another relay to give power to the other relay that does the alternating blinking. Basically giving the light power as long as the turn signal switch is activated. Only problem is I don't know where to draw this power from. As I understand it, we need this power from before the blinking module, wherever that is...

Thoughts?
