Electronic (no speedo gear) SYE kits...?

Hey guys, I am gearing up to get a tummy tuck and frame repair done and in preperations, I will need to get a SYE.

My question is: if I get the SYE I really want (JB Conversions Super Short) how hard is it to set up so the completely electronic speedo sensor reads correctly? Or should I set my sights on a speedo gear type SYE?

I can't believe no one has answered this.

You have it made.
Because your YJ already has the electronic speedo, installing the super short SYE is all to easy. The new sensor that comes with it plugs right into your wiring harness like the original.

According to JB Conversion web page on this subject, in order to calibrate it you buy a kit or change the speedo to an adjustable one.

After reading on it more, I can see where thier setup has some advantages.

I knew my 93 is not cable driven, but I thought it still used a speedo gear with a different tooth count to adjust the speed output on the speedometer...? The JB Super short has an electronic transducer gizmo instead of the speedo gear... doesn't that change things...? Will I have to get my computer flashed before it will read?

You probably wouldn't find anyone to flash the ECU even if you needed to have this done, but I don't think you need that. The gears in the 231 will compensate for wheel size and gearing configurations, but with this unit, it appears you can adjust the pulse pattern without gears - why don't you give the manufacturer a call and have them explain exactly what you'd need to do this? Zeus87gn mentioned that there was a kit to do this adjustment, the manufacturer might have a pdf file to send you explaining this and giving you the min and max limits of this adjustment.

Yeah, I will do that... I figured someone already had this one installed and they'd set me straight.
