Don't ruin the bumper man! Just make some tabs! Get some 1" or 2" wide flat bar 1/4" thick and heat it and bend it to a 90 degree... That way you can put them where you want!

The only way to learn how to do this stuff is to do it. Take your time, follow the instructions, and when all else fails, guess! Don't be afraid to ask questions either.

get a ring terminal from autozone or someplace like that so that it is a good solid connection

Just wait until theres a local meet near you or see if theres a Ranger guy that will come over and help you out. I'd drive out to help someone for just gas money. But if you really don't want them I'll take em. You can do it, just take your time and follow the instructions. If you take a picture of the wiring harness laid out we'll be able to help you a lot better.
