Exclamation Rear Defroster Help Needed!!

It is about that time of year to get the hardtop on. My Jeep supposedly came out of the factory with a hardtop, but does not have the relay for the rear window defroster. It has the red socket for the switch but no red relay. So, I purchased a tub harness off ebay and stripped out the appropriate wiring. Now I have the relay with the wires and I have no idea on how to hook it up. I couldn't find a good wiring schematic or picture anywhere. There was one on JEEP Forum that kinda looked applicable but was a little different then what I had. If anybody has a good diagram or pictures please help me. It's a pain in the ass not being able to see out my back window in the mornings.

Just find an open spot in the fuse box and plug it in. Put an in line fuse and hook it up to a switch. It cant be much different than a set of fog lights or something.

I just turn the heater on defrost full blast and crack my window for a bit and it un fogs lickedy I didnt even know YJ's came with rear defrost.
