Radio install- where is the antenna?

Wrangler jku 2007
I have a question about the radio antenna for anyone who has changed their head unit. When I took out the stock radio, there were three things attached to it:the wiring harness, and two cables that were exactly the same connection, one was yellow and the other was white. I know that one of these is the fm/am antenna, and crutch field said the other might be the satellite radio antenna. Well I bought the metra antenna adapter- the correct one- and it doesn't want to fit into either of the antenna wires. Has anyone had this problem?

I need to know which cable is the correct one (white or yellow)

And why isn't it wanting to fit?

I had this problem. I do not know which is which. I tossed the "adapter" (not sure wtf it was) and I forgo listening to radio altogether. I do not mind though.

I ordered Metra 40-CR10. Is that the one you got?

Looking at the back of the radio. Left side. Top is GPS. AM/FM is just below it.

I'll ask my brother what adapter he used. He has a 2013, should be the same.

Er, Just saw you have an '07. Might be of no help actually.

FWIW - He used a Metra 40-EU10 and it works fine.

I have an install manual that shows the plugs. PM me an email address and I will send it to you.
