Their should be a color chart with the harness. Just get you a test light and test what wires on the Jeep you need to splice into.

I know this doesn't help, but I bought the whole quick connect wiring harness (no splicing required) for $15.99. It was well worth the convience, plus there is less chance of corrosion.

The good thing is that the wires are easy to get to. They are in a loom on top of the driver's side wheel well tub. (near the roll bar). Get a Haynes or Chilton's manual, they have wiring diagrams that tell the colors to look for and just splice into them there. When not in use I tuck the extra vehicle wire in behind the roll bar and it's out of the way.

I thought those wires that ran through the loom were the taillights. Does anyone know off hand what color wires on the flat 4 go to what??? (Yellow, Brown, Green, and White) I know white is ground but what do the other colors go to?

Sorry about that. I can't believe what they change from year to year on a Jeep.

This is the color code for my boat trailer;

Universal wiring color code -- The normal trailer wire colors will be white, brown, green, & yellow.
White -- Ground
Brown -- Tail lights
Green -- Right hand directional
Yellow -- Left hand directional
