Can a digital TC change to a cable?

I have an 89 Cherokee 4.0L and I need a new transfer case. I was looking at posibilities, but I ran into a snag...

Cherokees 1984 through 1991 used a speedo cable and 1992 through 2001 used a digital sensor.

Is it possible to get a 1992 or newer TC to work with a cable speedo?


Looking to buy MJ, 2.5L, 5 speed, 4x4. *PM me*

I think the counter for the digital speedometer just bolts into the same old socket that an old-style Chrysler speedometer cable pinion goes in. I think you should be able to transfer your pinion from the old TC to the new one.

So the gearing on the digital sensor is the same as the pinion gear and I can just swap them out?

I'm pretty sure the whole pinion adaptor will swap over. Compare them at a junkyard to be sure.
