8 pin din CD aux pinout? Chrysler Jeep TJ 98

This is my first question here, I know this has been asked for before, and apparently given, but I just cannot find a picture or a complete description of the Radio cassette CD pin out?
I believe some of these 90's era radio units can be adapted to have an auxiliary output?
My unit has the 8 pin din connector on the back, which I am told there are two types, one that is quite dumb and another that actively communicates with the CD unit, if someone could show me the pinout of the earlier simpler connector, I will have a go at making a cable to a Bluetooth adaptor most likely.
I know it is easier to just put a new radio in its place, but I would like to keep this Jeep Tj as original as possible.
So if someone have got the pinout picture I would be very grateful.
Ps I drive a 98 Jeep TJ

I added Bluetooth to my 2003, works quite nicely. In my case the port required active communication.
Couldn't find the device I got but did find this place with various adapters for 90's era and 2000s Chrysler vehicles.
There are probably others and I have no experience with this site so not a recommendation of any sort.
Note that when I was looking for mine that there are different ports on these not all are pin arrangement shown.
You might want to do a visual inspection as well as getting exact radio model.
You said that the MBUS and BUS GND are unused by the adapter you have. If your radio is like mine then it requires the proper message on the mbus to enable the port. When enabled you get an additional option on the radio/CD selection.
Short of getting the right adapter ImperialCrown's suggestion is probably the best option.
