TJ-SE Rear Speaker Wires?

Hello... I am a new member and have a question already. I am upgrading my stereo. Have a new HU, dash adapter and wiring adapter. My 99 TJ SE appears to have wiring for rear speakers from front harness, but I can not find where the leads end. Can someone advise / Help?

Note: No original soundbar equipment. Is there wire going to the back of the jeep? Do I need to run my own wiring? Plan to use some old bookshelf speakers in the back. I can rewire all speakers, but hate to leave the original harness unused if I can avoid. Thanks for any and all guidance.

If I am not mistaken, Jeep did not run any wires back if there was no factory installed soundbar. The wiring will be present behind the radio, but will terminate at the bottom of the junction box above the driver's kick panel behind the dash; the bottom connector should be a red one. If the wiring ends here and there is only one side of the connector, you probably don't have the wiring there. You can use the wires that run from the radio to here, then just tie into them and continue running them back to where ever you plan to mount the speakers.

Unless the OE radio had a rear channel & sound bar, there is no wiring for the rear speakers at all. You'll have to add your own.
When you have a choice, buy American.
