Speedo help. The truck will have 37’s soon. Axles have 4.56 gears. What Speedo gear do I need to order for the tcase to keep the speed right? Buying the correct gear will keep the odometer accurate also, correct? Also don’t know if I need the short or long gear. Just did the 2wd ba10 to 4wd ax15 from a 96’ xj. The Speedo parts that go into the trans/tcase are different between the 2wd and 4wd transmissions. I won’t be able to use the cable driven Speedo off of my 2wd trans (it’s much bigger) so I’m going to take the Speedo mechanism off of my 87’ 4wd mj tcase.
My truck is an 89 with 2.5L and 4spd. I bought it a little over a year ago for $400 and have been tinkering on it since. When i got the truck it was basicly stock other then the 31x10.5 15s, the lights on the sides of the cowl which were cosmetic and had never been wired in , and a flowmaster muffler,it ran and drove but had been neglected/abused and needed ALOT of little things. First upgrade i did was a guage swap,my truck is a base model with idiot lights so i swapped them out for guages from a 1990 XJ. No photos but I'm sure youve seen MJ/XJ guages next project was the interior,the truck had some thrashed bucket seats out of some car thrown in it and bolted onto wood blocks screwed into the floor. I tore all that out,fabricated new mounts and put in a set from a 97 Dakota. next the rear, the rear bumper was missing and the truck had a reciever that hung below the missing bumper.I chopped off the reciever and tucked it up then made a rolled pan to cover it then I installed a winch bumper,I had one laying around from my old 83 F250. It was way too big so after a chat with a torch and welder it looked like this Now time for a lift,I decided to install a 5" lift from Rocky-road outfitters,It uses old man EMU springs and i installed long travel shocks. the entire install took me about 7 hrs to complete by myself. the truck drives much better on the road now and has lots of flex off road. the other day i decided to redo my headliner since the old one had been cut out but i wanted something different so i customized it. And thats about were I'm at now,with lots still to do.
