Ragnar of Ballard Also Crutchfield (Crutchfield: Car Stereo, Speakers, Home Theater, LED LCD TV, Cameras) is a pretty good resource for those sorts of things. I found them to be cheaper than anything on Amazon and they were also pretty good on the customer service side.

Cutting the bracket seems to be a bit of a waste of effort, TBH.
To each his own just wanted the extra security.

Make sure you buy plenty of splices if you do it your self or have good soldering experience. My personal preference is non insulated butt splices then buy some heat shrink and use a torch or a heat gun (butane lighter works well to). All the splices are very easy the speaker control wires all match in color. Some modifications had to be made on my 2012 wrangler. You need to cut the bottom off the metal bracket that holds the rear of the unit (depending on what you install) also had to trim the lip on the front plastic bracket. If you have any questions you can PM me and I will do my best to help.

RP4-CH11 is the correct harness to integrate an after market head unit whilst retaining steering wheel controls. Be aware that if you have a more recent '13, some people have reported compatibility issues with the firmware for that harness. I use it with '13 built in December 2012 and have no problems.
