Radio wiring help

So I decided to let my brother try to change out my stock radio in my '04 Wrangler and he messed it up pretty bad. He cut the stock radio wire harness completely off. He went to an auto shop and ordered a new one, but the wire colors don't match up. I've looked online for a diagram but no luck. Is there any way to find out which wires do what? Any help is greatly appreciated!

What he was supposed to do is buy the new harness and plug into the old harness. The new harness must say it is for a 2004 Wrangler, and the colors will be given on the new harness. Can you reattach the old harness? Or, if you can plug in the new harness to the old cut one. The colors on the old harness will line up with new harness and you can identify it this way, using the diagram of the new harness and tracing the wire across to the old harness.

Sadly we don't have the old harness anymore. We have the stock harness we ordered but the wires from the Jeep don't match up.

Never let him near any vehicle's electronic system again...

That is all.
