Default Stereo Wiring

Hi Everyone! I'm new here and just got a stereo for my truck (old one had been stolen from previous owner) and was getting ready to put it in when i realized that i don't know which wires on the truck are which. Does anyone have a wiring diagram or know where I might be able to find one?

wow.. the radio wires should have never cranked the motor... thats an odd one especially since the 12 constant only has a 15 ampf fuse and the switched 12 volt has a 10a.. that is super odd
