How to add electrical for rear window defroster?

I just picked up my 03 TJ, and found that it never had a hardtop from the factory. The previous ower put a hardtop on, and never ran electrical for the defroster or wiper. How do I go about adding the wiring for this? I really want to have this option, well I really dont care, but my wife wants it. And we all know if she wants it, she gets it.

I'm going through this right now with my 98 Sahara, but I'm piecing used wiring harnesses together, I'm a cheap skate, haha.

I did that on mine last year-you really need the comprehensive kit from Mopar.I got mine off eBay for a little under $100.00.Not too difficult,but was time consuming.You must pull the instrument cluster and add wiring,tap in under dash to main wiring,pull dash bezel to add switch,etc.The kit comes with great directions.I am very mechanically/electrically inclined,and know what I'm doing for the most part,and it still took me a half day,but yielded excellent results!
