Just get one out of an 87 to 90 XJ or MJ 4.0 with auto trans. 89 or 90 is the best.

If you own a Renix Jeep, you'll want to check this out.

You don't wanna do that!! Maybe someone on the forum has a spare from a parts vehicle. Post your request in the Parts wanted section.

My YJ was like that when I got it. We rewired almost every thing. I just put a new coil in mine because of running issues... I think this may have fixed it....

My tach hasn't worked since I bought the Jeep
I imagine it wasn't hooked up after the motor change
Any ideas how to get it to work?
