No on the regear. Haven't seen too much loss, but I think I may eventually get to it.

I just got a Procal Friday, This morning I went out and measured the height of the tire (P255-75-18 A/T RH-S Bridgestones) ( 31") Did the little Math thing, I set the dip switches (little slide switches) on the Procal, turned on the ignition switch, plugged in the Procal and the Horn honked, I unplugged the Procal, done deal.
Then my Battery died..... Been sitting for two weeks, original Batt. Charged it up and it works great !.....EASY, even for me....
I guess Jeeps can't live without these Procal thingy's ! "BH"

i hear ya, my biggest concern is the tpms, didnt buy them for the new rims and tires and wanted to shut the whole thing off.

if you get the AEV ProCal you just set the switches on the box, put your key in the ignition and turn for power (not ignition) and plug in the ProCal. your horn will honk once the flash takes... and you're done.

I'm only going from 255/70/18s to 305/70/16s. Research says I only go from 65MPH on the speedo to 66.5MPH. Is that a big enough deal and am I missing something else?
You'll need to recalibrate the speedo (I think your mph difference will be more than 1.5 mph...either way, if your speedo's not accurate, your odometer won't be, either). You can also use it for numerous other things, such as centering your steering wheel after the lift install, adjusting TPMS sensors so they don't trigger the warning light/chime constantly, etc.
