Radio Ground

The Jeep I bought had an aftermarket CD player in it. The display no longer worked due to water damage. I am swapping it out with one I picked up off CL. When I get back there I can tell that at one point in time the radio was stolen. All factory holes were ripped out. My problem is I can't find the ground wire...the previous owner did some half ass job where the deck was grounded to a glove box bolt...I cant believe it even worked..

Was the factory deck grounded by the security bolt? Where do you guys ground your head units? Will I be pulling too much ground from the cig lighter if I splice into that ground? I do plan to use that outlet for CPS on occasion.

Any help/suggestions are appreciated.

Thanks.

although it is odd i find the half ass glove box ground to be very effective! I know it sounds ridiculous but it gets the job done and is available for easy access. however i do not know if there is a specific ground for the radio unit i used the glovebox ground for my cb radio
