    To my fellow veterans

    Thank you. US Navy 1988 to 92.

  4. Its different from the Comanche one. I'm using it and it works. My trip odometer was in bad shape on the Comanche.
  5. Hmmm good question. But jeep Comanche and Cherokee are the same.
  6. Cool, thank you for the reply. Wow, they are bright.

  8. Has any tried these? https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0788DZDQB/ref=sspa_mw_detail_2?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  9. I found it on my 1985 Cherokee parts truck. It's a retainer clip for the odometer cluster to the cable. I wonder if can still purchase it.
  10. First remove odometer from guage cluster. Carefully use flat blade screwdriver to pry up on pointer. Remove screws on faceplate. Small e clip on side of odometer. Remove e clip. Slide end retainer over a hair. The slide each number over to unlock gears to turn reset numbers. Assembly in reverse. I Don't live in California. I'm in the Cayman islands. Living off grid.
  11. Now I have a confession. Madog 7200. I understand that you wanted to lower your mileage. New engine, new transmission whatever. I guess that God is teaching me to not worry about the speck in someone else eye when I have a log in mine. “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? Luke 6:41 NIV Basically Jesus Christ was teaching his disciple to not be a hypocrite. Say something about someone else wrong and you do it anyway. So, I have a 1985 Cherokee parts truck. My 1986 Comanche had a bad trip odometer, and now a temperature gauge. So I grabbed my 85 odometer and noticed the mileage is 300k plus and my 86 is 100k.(yes its actual). I to reworked the 85 odometer to match my 86. So forgive me. Everyone.
  12. Thank you. That's what I wanted to hear.
  13. Um that's illegal. Mileage is for the vehicle, not the motor or any other part. So swapping motor for bad or better doesn't constitute the turning back the odometer. At least not tell anyone about it. Say if you just paid a whole lot of money for a pristine 1500 mile, garage kept, original tires, interior, paint 62 Corvette. But the original owner lied, and took a wrecked burnt destroyed car and made it into the vehicle you just bought for 300k. How would you feel? It would devastate the resale of vehicles. My 1960 Ford f350 barn find is used, but the odometer is intact. 71565 miles I know that its has twice as much. I think it the late 60s they started adding the 100,000 odometer.
