cd player wiring harness help?

I have a 2000 tj and I tried to install a new jvc head unit and I messed up the wiring. I know its easy but im really bad with electronics. my friend told me they make a harness that goes from the head unit to the factory wiring so you don't have to wire. Just plug in and your done. Anyone know where I can find one or if there is such a thing. I've searched for two hours can't find anything.

Walmart carries them. Cheap and easy. Just match the wire colors and go.
Also...almost any electronic store with a car audio section,,best buy, curcit city etc.

ALWAYS use a harness if you can..why? You can always swap it back to stock or install a different radio down the road without worry.

Crutchfield, for one. I found one at Wal-Mart. Pretty common item.

Probably this one at Crutchfield:

I know about those ones im talking about one that plugs in and goes into the cd player to the jeep harness so I don't have to do the wiring. I know its easy but im color blind so im looking for one to just plug straight into the head unit to jeep harness. I don't wanna pay someone an arm and a leg to do it.

Here, for one.

Metra - Wiring Harness for Most 1985-2005 Chrysler, Plymouth, Dodge and Jeep Vehicles - IBR-WHCR

I bought one for my 97 TJ from Best Buy, best $20 I ever spent on radio installation.

The part is called a wiring harness adapter, do a Google search, they're pretty easy to find.
