plugs do not mate up...

Got a new set of CG Black Ted Tail light assemblies. Tryed to install them but the plug on the old stock fixture looks nothing like the plug coming out of the LED Assembly. Stock fixture on the harness side is about the size of a thumbnail. It is flat and has some type of yellow piece molded into it. The plug coming from the CG Light is also about the size of a thumbnail as well. Both plugs appear th be male fixtures. Can someone tell me...is there is some type of Female-Female adapter or pigtail that I will need to purchase to get these suckers to connect.

Or if anyone can explain how this swap is made with the current, seemingly mismatched, plug and recepticals

Or if there is anyone that might direct me to a video showing this swap.

Thanks:
JEG

Are the connections sealed up, if not there WILL be a corrosion issue later on.
That part of the truck get dirt and road grime tossed up there from the tires.
