Yeah, You could heat shrink the crap out of them... then ziptie them so they don't vibrate.

Much of my problem stemmed from the previous owner. When the Rallyraid kit was installed, the wires weren't long enough so they were lengthened with 2 short wires. The the Ignition coil uses 1 small and 1 large connector, when he installed the wires, he used 2 large wires. These came loose, then broke then, then came loose again. I think I have a pretty good fix now.
