What the Iron-Dude said. The wife, sister, GF or Mistress will have a safety pin or a straight pin you can stick through the backside of the connector at the wire/seal junction.

I had some trouble making contact with a thin paper clip, which I cut in two pieces.
Vehicle off- When contact was made, I read 2.2 with throttle closed and 3.7-4.3 with throttle open. these readings fluctuated and I wasn't able to duplicate the numbers and therafter kept gettin 10+ volts whether or not throttle was open. Above readings were with volt meter scale set to "20"

Here's a better way to test, check out the video:

I replaced the TPS sensor, but that was not the problem. could this be a bad IAC? or will a bad IAC cause different problems?
Here's a pretty easy way to test it all, check out the video:

no need for real hassle.

Thanks. What is meant by the diagnally placed teminals to connect the OHM meter leads? The IAC terminals are 4 in a row...

Just do the business card procedure. Cheep and easy.

Start it up and place a business card over a portion of the IAC ports. Slide it back and forth. Exposing more/less of the ports. This acts just like the plunger opening and closing. If the idle comes back down thing you have a bad IAC or dirty seat.

FWIW on my stroker I had to drill a small .030 +/- hole in the throttle plate to pass more air then the TB would allow. This was with a 64mm TB. Not relevant to a stock engine but the point is I used the business card to help obtain the correct sized hole.

If you are still confused then post up. I`ll take a couple pictures later.

The IAC in the video was just an example from a Ford or GM car. It was just to show the concept of "how to". To get the right terminals on the jeep, I would refer to the Haynes manual. If you don't have one, I can look it up later on today - but I do recommend getting some good manuals.
