Hard Top Wiring

I've installed a hard top on my TJ. It has never had one before so I just installed the primary harness (top to driver's-side dash) with hose.

I couldn't find one during a cursory search, but is there a harness built-in for the wiper/sprayer switch and the rear defrost switch? I'm guessing not, but I didn't want to wire everything, THEN find it laying an inch away.

Also, I'm adding a sound bar, should there be a wiring harness already in the Jeep if it's never had a sound bar? I haven't even begun to look for it and since I'm typing, I might as well ask about this too.

Not sure about the sound bar.

My Jeep came with just a soft top, so I bought the mopar wiring kit. came with a new washer resevioir under the hood, a second pump, the wiring and hose, 2 switches, and a few fuses and relays. The wiring is pretty straight forward, except the under dash connectors. The directions are REALLY lacking when it comes to that, and those metal wire connectors are pretty permanent when installed so you cant pick the wrong hole. I ended up having to hardwire 2 out of 4, because a buddy got the wrong slots by accident.

The harness includes the switches and the harness has the connectors built into it, not the jeep. In other words, you pull the dash apart, run the wires/connectors from the harness through the dash, install the switches in the trim panel, and just connect them. The only real hard part is the stupid connectors under the dash. What a PITA
