Well, last week I purchased a 99 Wrangler 2.5l 5 speed manual soft top and I am pretty excited about it. I used to have one several years ago, but at that time I had a 1 hour commute to work and the gas mileage about killed me. So now I live in the same town that I work in and thought it was time for a TJ again.
Great body condition, fresh looking paint, and interior is perfect. Has after market fog lights and it came with a soundbar. 73,000 miles and I gave $6000 for it.
So here is my question. I just put 31" tires on it yesterday from stock and my speedometer is about 5-6 mph slower than reality (verified with gps). I called the dealership and they said that they probably weren't going to be able to calibrate it because the speed sensor was in with the ABS module.
This is where I'm confused. I thought that I needed to put new speedo gears in it to get it closer?
Who's right? and if it is me that is, why did the Jeep dealership tell me this other thing?
