    Wiring is real easy. And for the headliner cut, just start small. You can actually keep the cut about an inch narrower than the bracket and be ok. Just use the bracket for the width measurement.

    Follow the video and line up that tab with the roof.

    You can do it! :thumbup:

    Well, once you bolt the bracket in a drill and good bit work great. Thats in the video also. I used a 1/4" cobalt bit.

    My first one I installed I used a dremel, that was bad because of the sparks, it burned up the headliner
