Forgot to note, when the gear ratio didn't match my speedometer was off by as much as ~5MPH in some cases (I only knew this because they have radar on one of the streets I went on ; they're useful for something!)

Alright I'm going to bring this back to the steering wheel centering. I've been reading up on how the ProCal works and what I have to do, so I just want to make sure of what all is needed / how it'll work for my build.

I plug in the ProCal and then go and manually re-center the wheel until the lights on the dash tell me I'm centered, tighten everything back up and life's good right?

I can't imagine it'll be that far outta whack with the 2.5" lift and 33s

Yes, that is how you do it.

I've heard Some being off-some not.

As you adjust the wheels, just watch your turn signals on the front of the jeep. That way you don't have to keep getting up and looking inside. You can just lay underneath and adjust the draglink as you watch the exterior lights.

If the wheel is too far to the right, the right turn signal will light. If the wheel is too far to the left, the left turn signal will light. If the steering wheel is stopped exactly dead center, the highbeam indicator and both turn signals will light.

Mine was off after my lift. Just a little, but it was off.

I just got the ProCal in and started reading over a few things. Just wanted to clear this up...

When you set the tire size, measure the tire after they are installed, set the Dip Switch settings to the proper size according to the chart, and with the engine off and ignition on, plug the ProCal into the OBD port and the horn will sound twice. Once that happens, do you unplug the ProCal with the ignition on or do you turn the igntion off then unplug the ProCal?

Does not matter if you unplug while it's on or off.

Thanks

Plus once it is plugged in for the first time, does it automatically read your VIN or do you have to set the VIN as it is shown under "Engine Functions"?

Automatically grabs it. The engine functions are mostly for people with HEMI swaps to reprogram the PCM, etc

It's honestly as easy as it looks. No need to over think it
