I ended up taping the wire end to a piece of doll rod and fed it through.

It took me 15 minutes to install and program the Speedohealer. Programming it actually took about one minute.

There's a chart that allows you to figure out what perentage you have to set. I set mine at 9.1%. I took it out for a quick spin and found it was spot on at 20, 30, 40 and 50 mph....I couldn't head out on the hwy yet, but will later, but I'm sure it's dead on there too.
It appears my speedo is almost dead on, it looks dead on up to 65, then it appears to be off by 1mph (speedo reads 65, gps 66), at 70 mph it's off by 2mph (speedo reads 70, gps read 72). I'm sure I cound fine tune it, but really it's good just like that.

Oh, it appears the shift points of the 42rle are back to where they are supposed to be. I'm running right around 2300 rpm's at 65 mph and the jeep didn't down shift while going up a hill on the interstate that it down shifted on yesterday. All in all I'd say it's money well spent.

Great DD build and your shepherd is pretty too man. Someday if/when I'm done with the YJ I will do something similar with a JK Unlimited Rubi!

Looking good, for sure. I'm not real happy with the shovel either, especially tranny part. I want a tummy tuck too, someday, but until then I'm going to go with the Skidrow engine skid, as soon as I get a chance to pick it up.

I called Q-tec today and cancelled the OR-Fab rock sliders. They said they "probably" won't ship until mid January. Thinking probably could turn into February I decided they didn't need my money anymore. I told them showing an item "in stock" when it really isn't, isn't the best way to keep a customer. I've usually had good luck with Q-tec, but I'm not too sure I'll be going back to them anytime soon.

Time to pick out some different rock sliders.

I could save even more weight by just sticking with the stock rockers, and spend the money on something else....

Like a trip to Moab maybe?

I'm actually glad for you that the Or-Fab stuff fell through, now you can go with Rokmen. You will not be disappointed.
