SYE Kit?

I'm cogitating on which way to go with a SYE kit so I can put the tansmission and transfer case on my '93 Wrangler back up where they belong. One decision seems to be whether to keep that little speed sensor that plugs into the tail cone. Can someone tell me what's the function of this thing? what happens if I get rid of it? Does this operate the speedo? I do still drive my Wrangler on the street occasionally so I still need the speedometer. Then, does anyone have a recommendation on whose kit to buy or whose kit to avoid? Can the kit be installed with the transfer case in place? I'm a fairly decent mechanic...done lift kits, A/C compressor changeouts, etc but I'd rather not pull the transfer case if it's not needed. Thanks

Doing the install with the transfer case in makes it a little more awkward, since you are laying on the ground. On the other hand there is a time investment in taking it out and putting it back in. I have done a couple "in" and one benefit is it stays still while you are working on the bolts. No matter what you do, in or out, loosen the yoke nuts before you do anything else.

Just about every SYE is made by only a couple of companies so they are all the same; except stay away from the hack-n-tap versions.

The speed sensor is needed and the sye tail piece will have a place for it.
