Trailer Light Convertor, for LEDs brake lights

I have an '09 Access Cab with LEDs brake lights, does anyone know what brand of trailer harness/convertor works with these lights? I know, from experience that Valley and T-One do not work. I need a convertor that will not back feed current from turn signals into the brake light circuit. I am looking for the connector type rather than the hard wire type.

Tried that model and did not work. The trailer lights work fine, but the vehicle lights, brake lights blink when the turn signals are put on.

mine has a big box for the taillights, the dealer had it installed before i purchased the truck....i would tell you what it is but they used what seems like a whole role of 2 sided tape to keep it in the frame rail so i can't get it out....but i can tell you its not a simple t connector, its like a 4in by 6 in box.

that one should work. Mine had to be hardwired in also. No plug and plays that i know of.
