Are those wire connectors for doing some sort of exposed splice?

I don't like the electric shift but I'm not sure I like the idea of rolling under the truck to shift. I did that for a week when the motor died and didn't have time or money to replace it . I locked vice grips on it til I got a new motor.

The connectors are to splice the harness so the dash lights still tell you 4x4 is engaged

No, I'll post the video, the wire connectors are for the speed sensors. The electronics on the inside connect with a harness plug that has about 9 pins - try diagnosing that!

There are afew guys over on the explorer forum that made a manual shifter that can be shifted from in the cab. Some use flex shafts others used a 90 drill Chuck to get the rods into the cab.

That is the cheesiest thing I think I have ever heard...those type of connectors are not designed for vibration and are sure not weatherproof.
The connection should be made with a bare compression connector, then soldered, then a heat shrink with seal applied....or a type of weatherproof connector.

What are you talking about Duncan? The wire nuts? In order to disconnect the electric motor, you have to cut the three wires connected to the speed sensor (which you won't need anymore - thus no electric motor), so instead of having 3 wires just dangling, he provides these to cover them in case you want to resplice them and hook up another motor down the road or something, to avoid them getting corrosion and what not.
