Speed/Tire Size Calculator

Something like this may have already been posted, but I've seen several comments over various threads talking about how far off their speedos would be given a change in axle gears or tire sizes. Although I don't have a JK (yet!), I do have a WK2 and a friend of mine, also a WK2 owner (BMWister on another forum), made an Excel spreadsheet to quickly do some what-ifs for the Pentastar and W5A580. It was originally made for a WK2 forum but he gave me a "JK-copy" to make available here. Unless you un-protect the worksheet, you can only change the tire size and select from a few axle ratios so even a noob Excel user can work it without screwing it up. Hope it's useful to someone.

Since gears changed in the 2012, the mod may want to consider adding this to the FAQ....
