I just got my truck on the road, and immediately I noticed that from 35-50 mph a quick ticking sound forms coming from the gauge cluster. It’s most intense at 45, and usually slows down and gets quieter around 30 and 55. Anyone have any idea what this is? The cable is from a YJ, the same one the trans and tc came from. I think I vaguely remember that it did the same thing when my truck had a ba10 and the original speedo cable. But I never took it past 35 since it hasn’t left my neighborhood until recently. I’m assuming it’s something with the gauge cluster. The actual speedometer needle bounces a lot so that’s maybe connected. Any input or help would be appreciated

Search lubing the speedo cable and greasing the cluster, I usually pull the cluster and on the top of the speedo itself, might have to be removed from the cluster to get at. There is a spot for oil, I just use 3n1 oil and then graphite the cable, others use grease IIRC

It's probably the cable. One of mine does that when it's cold in the morning but not in the evening. Another thing I need to get to.

I have the same symptoms.

Recently it's changed and gone down to being most intense at 35, and basically gone by 45. It's also gotten warmer recently, so the whole oil thing is probably it.
