My gauges are acting up and I'm thinking about switching to after market ones. I am wondering if a cable driven CJ style mechanical Speedometer would work with the TJ's NV231 transfer case. Can you unscrew the electronic sensor and screw in a speedo cable instead? Any thoughts are appreciated. 97 TJ 2.5, 5 Spd. Manual
I'd leave the t-case end and electronic setup as is. If you want an aftermarket gauges (I went with Autometer), contact the gauge MFG to see if they can handle the CAN BUS feed from the existing setup, or contact DakotaDigital.com to see if they have an adapter module to convert the CAN BUS feed to a proper gauge signal for the chosen gauge.
