help please.

I installed an after market stereo in my 2000 Wrangler tonight and the antenna wire from behind the dash came disconnected. I can't figure out where to reattach it. Any suggestions?

There should just be a small hole in the back of the radio it plugs in to...

If a short cable tail was still attached to the radio when it was removed there is another cable behind the glove box that has to get reconnected.

That's what came out in my hand
The small cable that was supposed to stay behind the glove box. Should I be looking for a loose piece of coaxial cable to reconnect to or is there some type of junction or converter box to reconnect this to?

Just a cable end. Just pop out your glovebox and it should be right there. It might have a foam sleeve covering the cable so it could be fatter than your eye would suspect.

Exactly right. Foam cover threw me off. Found it. Connected it. And the new stereo with HD Radio works great! Thanks for your help.

No worries, enjoy the tunes. I put Kickers in this year and that was a major improvement.
