so did the new radio you are trying to install come with a seperate harness to connect to the factory wiring or did you crimp each individual wire from the new radio to the factory wires? Double check your colors on the corresponding wires for Power lead, remote, make sure the ground is tight, speaker wires etc.? Make sure the harness and or crimps are all solid and tight.
Some radios come with an inline fuse as someone mentioned earlier also check the fuse in your fuse panel on the inside firewall. It may have blown when the other radio was stolen, wires got crossed or yanked around, etc.

get a multimeter..... lowe's sells a greenlee for $18 that'll be perfect for everything jeep related and it's even got a crappy rubber "boot" to help protect it from damage when you drop it....

A lot of the time there is an inline fuse. It is in a semi clear/white sleve. It holds a fuse that is skinny and round in size. You twist the clear/white sleve to open it. You should be able to check the fuse with ease to see if it is blown. I'm 99% sure you have a fuse problem

If you are installing a stock OEM Radio, the wire you show plugs onto a tab that is already on the back of your radio.. It is right beside the main plug-in...
The wire is already attached to a ground, and its purpose is to ground your radio. If the tab is missing, just loosen a screw on your new radio and attach the wire to it, which will ground the radio...

Wait a min. The wire in your pic ( as asked above) comes from the truck not the radio? If so then with above, just attach it to one of the screws on the radio.

pm me your email and I will send you a complet wireing diagram for your jeep. This was a huge help when I coudn't get my 4wd light to come on. It tells you (as far as the jeep goes not your radio) what every color of every wire in your jeep is and what it goes to/from. Great tool when trying to figure out where you weak link is.
