Arrow What color is the ground wire in my 93?

The factory radio harness in my truck was cut out so I have plain wires. I have everything hooked up except for my ground and there are a couple of options. I think it might be a black wire with a green stripe because it's a little bit larger than all of the others.

Continuity test. Set a mutimeter up to test Ohms. Then touch the tip of that wire with one probe and the touch a body ground with the other. If you get ~0 ohms its a ground wire. Can you peel anything back to see which factory wire this comes off of.
BTW congrats on getting that far. I know you had allot of other wires to figure out.

Yea I don't have on of those haha. How has nobody been in the same situation as me with a 93? I think I might as well use the ground on my head units harness since it's got a little terminal on it..
