A few issues

A friend of mine just installed some upgraded axle shafts on his JK.
When he was pulling the tone rings off, he snapped one of them. Didn't want to wait for new ones so he went ahead and installed the shafts without them.

Now his speedo isn't working, his fuel gauge is out of control, odometer is clocking miles. He doesn't want to pay for new bearing etc. and is thinking of just running the Jeep as is.

Will the odometer return to its actual reading once reinstalled?
Is the fuel gauge tied into something other than a gauge in the tank.

I thought the speedo was run off the tailshaft of the transmission, and I thought the tone rings were ABS related, guess I was wrong.

Any help is appreciated.

Try pulling the sensor itself ?
Possible the sensor is reading "nothing" and causing it to go crazy ?

Let's see...the friend screws up a part swap that causes other systems failures on the JK and now is too cheap (broke?) to fix the mistake. I commend him or her for working on the Jeep, but sometimes repeating the effort is just the price of doing it yourself. Call it education and move ahead with the repairs. For what it is worth, these jobs are always easier and quicker the second time.

He prob needed to get the jeep together to drive, and did not want to wait for new ones.
