Default Splicing a NMEA 2000 connection?

Is there a way to cut and splice a NMEA 2000 wire, or attach a new connector? I need to run the wire through my T-top and I don't know how much room I will have.

Yup, red & black wires = 12VDC line, Blue & white wires = data. If yer color blind, yer screwed.
