electrical gremlins

ok, heres the situation... this is an 86 dodge ram W250 4x4. the problem is when the tail lights are off, i have both brake lights. and when i turn the tail lights on and hit the brakes the one light goes out completely. i've checked all the wiring for breaks or shorts and i've checked all the ground wires too and they were all ok. is there something im missing? plus i've used 2 diferent bulbs so the bulb is ok. any help with this would be greatly appreciated. thanks!

Doc here,

Do you have Trailer lamp connections? If so Check there first..That is about the only place the two would be close...except in the rear harness going from the cab to tailgate..Those connect Nowhere in the circuit (isolated from each other)

it did have trailer connections, but we pulled the trailer wiring harness out because we thought that was the problem, but its still doing it. the wires from the cab, under the truck look ok. unless i missed something somewhere. ill have to go back out tomorrow and really look over the wiring good.....
