to my knoweldge, there is a factory harness for basic stereo in ALL xj models....hides down in the area of dash above heater controls.
anyhow, most stereo's have two "hot" wires....the RED is the memory power, and always is hot, and the YELLOW is the "power-on" power that provides the juice to the radio to make tunes.
as for speakers, they go like this:
(this is for 4-speaker setup, you'll see the code is color/color+white for any speaker leads to each speaker)
power antenna is the Blue wire, but you don't have a power antenna
black will always be negative ground.
Here's a BIG tip:
forget about the 6-disc, 10-disc CD changers, or any variation thereof. the HOT tip:
leave the factory am/fm, whatever ya got in there, and just get an iPOD with the cigarette lighter adapter/fm output kit. heres' why:
1) awesome sound capability, with Equalizer stuff, from your basic ipod
2) who needs to swap CD's out of the damm dash, have somone rip your radio out, when your ipod has over 1,000 songs. some monster units will hold 10,000 songs. best of all, just pop it out and take your tunes with you to the gym, mountain bike, etc....
3) if you have an iPOD, with this little mountkit, you will NEVER ever need to upgrade any factory radio or for that matter any piece of junk radio as long as the FM radio works!!
