The switch is insulated so wires can go either way.

This sounds like you have a bad ground on your Dakota. Trace the wires back until you see that one of the wires is connected to the body or frame with a small screw or small bolt. Make sure that your have a good clean ground to work with.
Another thing that you can check for is to see if there is another light out somewhere else on the truck. Its like christmas lights, when one bulb goes, it can effect all the others just as well. The only other option is to check your fuses, get the fuse diagram and see what controls the taillights. On my truck I have the wrong fuse in there cause only the taillights to work and not the brake lights. Vehicles are very picky with there fuses. If the correct fuse is in there, make sure that the fuse isnt burnt out. You can check that by seeing if the filament in there looks burn or is broken like it popped. Hope this helps!

A test light checking each connector would be faster and easier to do. Maybe somebody may have a illustration for you but by far a simple test light is all you need with a helper turning on the different lights as you check them out and writing all your findings down
