Adding rear defrost.

Hey guys, first a little back story.

I have a base 2000 wrangler, came with a softtop, 2.5l + AX-5 (the runt of the litter).

Earlier this year I bought a hardtop from a guy who wrecked his 2000 Sahara with a shattered back glass. I replaced the back glass with this unit:

Now, since my jeep is a base model with out any wiring for the rear wiper or defroster I need to add it. I'm not to concerned with the wiper at the moment, just want to make sure I get the defrost out of the way before winter. even though as it is, I'm already better off then I was in the softop.

I've had trouble finding info on adding the wiring, I assume it's as easy as adding a relay, switch and a fuse. But I want to know if there is any bias on witch pole (driver or passenger) is hot or ground and what size fuse should I be using?

Also, if anyone is aware of a factory conversion kit, that would be super awesome. I have enough jerry rigged switches on my dash lol.

cause I like to see pics of jeeps, here it is:

They sold lots and I still have the directions but it is more complicated then you think
A momentary switch with indicator light in center lower dash
A relay in relay box under hood
The defroster grid on back glass
PLUS tie in to the timer circuit in the cluster is the factory kit method
