Here are some instructions. You will need 18 gauge wire, wire connectors, etc. Also, Ford makes a bypass connector which basically crimps over the lt blue/yellow and I believe pink wires.

Step 1:

Locate the sensor on the clutch pedal and remove.

Step 2:

Locate pink, and red/blue wires.

Step 3:

Splice the two of them together using a crimp-on wire splice connector.

Step 4:

Reinstall the sensor to the clutch pedal and your done.

There is another way to do it using a 2 position switch so that when the vehicle in not off-road the switch will work like normal. For this method follow these steps.

Step 2 A:

use a crimp-on wire connector on each of the wires indevidualy with a pig tail wire off of each one.

Step 2 B:

Run each of the pig tail wires into a standard two position toggle switch.

Step 2 C:

Refer back to step 3 to finish.

Just be aware that you are disabling a SAFETY feature.

...if started w/o the clutch pedal pushed in, and in gear, that thing will lurch quite a bit

Just get under the floorboard and see where the clutch hits the engage pin/box and then get a tie wrap and/or electical tape and wrap around it to keep it engaged. I did this way in case I wanted to change it back quickly and haven't messed with it in 3 yrs....still works great. Be aware of what tow guy said.
