they cut it, unfortunately my parts heep has a dealer installed harness they spliced in, but atleast i can use the wire to do my own.
The header is already ordered and paid for. They had OEM panels with lights included, but as i have 2 jeeps worth of lights already i wasn't going to pay for more. It will be here Wednesday I'll see how it goes. After i get it in my hands i may see how difficult it would be to lay out on the plasma cutter at work and see about cutting one out of galvanized/stainless/aluminum.
Those studs weren't a problem, put my 18v RIGID impact drill on em those nuts just melted off. Now if only the pittman nut on my parts heep would be so cooperative i could make $50!
