Default Aftermarket tach install help

has anyone installed an aftermarket tach in their ranger?

i dont want to do a cluster swap just to throw it out their, but to wire it up, ive been reading you have to splice into a wire on the powertrain control module.

am i gonna F*** my truck up splicing into it? it seems like a big deal splicing into.

Any advice?
thanks

as long as you dont sever the wire you should be good. it doesnt have a lot of current going thru it.
