Switching Cable-Driven Speedometer to Electronic

I'm having a Rugged Ridge Mega Short SYE installed on my NP231 and I found out that I'll have to switch out the cable-driven speedometer in my 89 to an electronic one.
Has anyone done this? I'm looking for the most simple way; not necessarily the cheapest.
Also, would a 92-95 gauge cluster work?

Thanks in advance.
Dave

Why not just get an after market speedo? That should do the job. You should be able to get it to fit just like a stock speedo head.

A 89 yj with a 4.0 aw4 sye out of an 92xj. Now the hard part is done time to get it up in the air just a bit. Working on 8.8 with 3.73 and lsd for the rear. and new D30 hp with 3.73 .
For those who have not figured this out I'm old school but can handle the new too.

That's one option I'm looking into. I would like to keep the stock look and keep all the gauges in their stock location for now. We are going to check 92-95 gauges first since they can be bought fairly cheap on ebay.
