Speedometer Calibration

Friday morning we installed a new set of Goodyear Fierce Attitude M/T tires on my 2004 Rubi. They are LT285/75R16 in size. My brother should the specs show them to be at 33.1 inch tire. Of course they made my speedometer off so I've been using my GPS to know my speed. This morning my brother was going to check the pinion gear on the speedometer cable to change it to correct my speedometer. But he discovered there was no gear it's a magnetic pickup sensor.

On a model like this what is the easiest and cheapest way to correct my speedometer for my new tires?

Electronic correction is the only way with the 241. The Blue Monkey product linked above is popular (its what I use), but there are others as well if you search (e.g. Dakota Digital).

I used a plug and play yellow box.
It is real simple. No cutting or splicing wires.
No power or ground needed.

I'm looking at the blue monkey website now.


What is a plug-and-play yellow box?

The blue monkey you are looking at is very popular.
The yellow box i chose is fairly popular too.
They are the 2 most popular choices i hear about.
Both get pretty good reviews.
I think either would do a fine job.
i would look and see whats cheaper.
the plug and play options are nice!

I do wish the harness was a foot longer on my plug and play yellow box.
It worked ok, but if it was longer, i would have had more mounting location options.
Mine is hung on the fire wall near the transmission dipstick.

Means the same thing it does when anyone on the forums does it, means your watching the thread. I need to correct the speedo on my Rubicon as well.

And I don't do that line thing, it's happening automatically for some reason, the app I suppose.

Popcorn usually means you're sitting back watching the drama and fireworks, taking in the entertainment. I didn't think anyone was slap-fighting as sometimes happens, so I was surprised to see you popping all that corn. Wannabe fight about your squiggly?
