Need HELP with aftermarket stereo install. Wiring

Ok, wanting to get rid of the crappy factory stereo in My KK Liberty. I ordered this wiring harness odd Ebay.

I am so confused with this. The red wire which is power in a normal vehichle is not part of the harness. I have also looked further into this only to find that there are several harnesses avail. Not sure now which I need? How do I know? If I did order the correct one Where do I hook this red wire to? I have searched all over the internet and cannot find any info on people doing an install in a KK. Mine is just a plain stripped down Liberty with no steering wheel controls or that U connect thing or Sirius in the factory head unit. I have done several aftermarket stereo installs in cars before but have never run into something like this. I bought this KK used and did remove the factory stereo just to look at what the Factory stereo and wiring looked like. There is only 1 plug besides the antenna going to the head unit. The previous owner did have aftermarket installed in it because the factory plug has one of the wires stripped bare. Actually the one that goes to the yellow on the harness I ordered.

You have to tie the power into the fuse box or cigarette lighter I stripped some of the wire off the cigarette lighter power wire and mine works fine. There is no power on the harness you have to splice into a power source. make sure you use the white connector for the antenna as well.
