I mounted it on the bed face below the tailgate. It was a little difficult to get into position, I even dropped it behind the bumper for a minute. I eventually got it where I wanted it, and peeled the backing off slowly and pushed it down across the width of the opening. Overall it came out great, but I'm not sure how well it will stick if it is cold where you live. Might be overkill, but here is the spot where its supposed to go. Don't mount it too high or low so that the bumper or tailgate cover the leds.
Without looking at mine, I assume this is normal, although yours does look a bit jagged at first glance. I watched some youtube vids of cabin filter replacements and it looks like they all had the notch. I could be wrong though.
One of the amazon reviewers on both the light bar and the harness mentioned this way of doing it, it was much easier than messing with factory wiring. There are 4 white wires that go between the male and female 7 pin connectors on the curt harness, the one that is coming from right in the middle of one connector, and going to the middle of the other, is the wire you need to splice into to get the reverse feature to work.
Used this harness: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0009FJ38Q/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s02?ie=UTF8&psc=1 No splicing of factory wiring at all, just spliced into this harness. The 7 pin connector has the reverse wire necessary to turn on the white backup light. No splicing at all if you don't care about the reverse light, just plug into the 4 pin for brakes and turn signal. In the future returning to stock is just unplugging the harness and plugging factory plug back in. Also this allowed me to hide all wiring behind the bumper and still have use of factory trailer connections.
