    4.56 or 4.88 gears?

    Thanks macho. I passed it along to my mechanics. They actually worked at Chrysler for 30 or 40 years but left in early 2000s so I'm guessing they may not have done any TJs. Thanks to both you and Jerry for the info.

    4.56 or 4.88 gears?

    Jerry. (or anyone else with firsthand experience) I purchased this exact same kit from Revolution for my 06LJR. They didn't come with crush sleeves although when I ordered them they said they did. The sales guy called around to a number of his associates that deal with TImken etc and according...

    4.56 or 4.88 gears?

    ok, I had assumed that the other end of the cable at the PCM also had a connector.

    4.56 or 4.88 gears?

    Unless I've missed something in the documentation and the install videos, the speedohealer only attaches at the transfer case, not at the PCM. No other specific brand was discussed other than a generic reference to one that had a knob you turn. I have no idea where that one attaches, probably...

    4.56 or 4.88 gears?

    Fair enough. Then at the PCM instead of at the transfer case. Same principle.

    4.56 or 4.88 gears?

    Understood. I guess my experience with variable pots is that they tend to drift due to temperature and vibration etc. That being said, there very well may be a potentiometer inside the speedohealer that you cant even see.

    4.56 or 4.88 gears?

    Got it. To be honest I'm not sure why they didn't intercept the signal where the factory harness plugs into the speedo cluster instead of under the vehicle.

    4.56 or 4.88 gears?

    In reading all of this and seeing a comment or two on changing pinion angles to alleviate or at least partially mitigate the vibrations... I have begun to wonder if there's a correlation between the amount of lift and the likelihood you'll run into vibration issues? A higher lift is certainly...

    Hi from North Dakota

    I only have ones from the seller, none of my own yet. Seems like cheating to post those.

    Hi from North Dakota

    Yeah I hope so too and thanks. There was a Lone Steer Motel in Steele which is about 20 minutes east of Bismarck. I hadn't heard of it but according to the new it was burned down in 2012.

    Hi from North Dakota

    Hi I'm Tim, I'm a transplant in Bismarck ND. Just recently purchased my 1st TJ but 5th Jeep. 2006 Unlimited Rubicon. It's still on it's way here but I've been busy doing all sorts of research on things I know I need/want to do. Thanks

    4.56 or 4.88 gears?

    I like plug and play (watching install video now). I'd prefer not to cut into the factory wiring if I can avoid it. Thanks!

    4.56 or 4.88 gears?

    OK, I didn't know that. Is Speedohealer the best brand? Or just the one with the easiest to remember name? :)
