    http://www.ih8mud.com/tech/fj40_wiring_diagram.pdf. This is in the technical section.Red with blue stripe = is actually lavender with blue it is from the backup light switch to the back up lights.
    White with black stripe is left and right turn signal grounds
    Green is the marker lights power wire
    green with white stripe is the hazard is the power supply to the brake lights
    green with black is left hand turn signal power wire. Look at this diagram
