Question LiteDOTs LED Tail light Install Issues

So I have a 2004 Jeep Wrangler Sport 5-speed with a wiring harness for a trailer in the rear and had a hookup for being towed in the front (which I cut for my new bumper). Recently I bought a set of the LiteDOT LED Tail lights and as im a decently versed DIYer, I attempted to do the install. Even though I followed the directions to the T, my wiring doesnt match up to that of the instructions. Where there is supposed to be a connecter from the OEM tail light to the jeep and it appears to have been spliced and hard wired in. At this point im completely stuck and the story is the same for both tail lights. Is it safe to just cut and hard wire the new tail lights in or should I take it to a professional and have them do the install? Which is $$$ i dont want to spend if i dont have too.

Hard wiring should be fine but I'm not 100% sure. If you cut them and it doesn't work you can just splice them back together

Should be no problem to hard wire. My 4" LED tail lights are spliced into my trailer light harness (preferred not to cut up my good stock harness) and work great. Just solder and heat shrink the connections.
