Modifying 4x4s is sure getting easier.

(Wouldn't this look cooler on an AEV hood?)

In the old days we had to do walk up hill both ways to modify a Jeep. Today it is simply a few clicks of the computer and it is done. This whole process took 2 mins.

Changed to 35" tires so my speedo is off. In the old days I would have had to change a physical gear inside the transfer case. Today I just plug in the AEV Procal and tell it what tire size I have.

Measured them at 34.0" and set a few dip switches, 2 seconds later the speedo is correct, the ESP should work better, the trans will shift at the right time.

Next I set my fogs to stay on as daytime running lights and lowered my TPMS threshold to 28 psi so that annoying light shuts off.

It will also let you set the correct gears after a gear swap, turn on and off the 1 click lane change feature, center your steering wheel for ESP,clear fault codes, etc etc. Very handy little tool.

More pics.

Just set the dip switches according to the guide for the options you want and plug it into the OBDII poart. The horn will honk 2 times to let you know the programming is complete.

.....and if you have big paws like me you will have an excuse to use your knife to set the dip switches. :roll:

Unfortunately they are VIN locked to the Jeep you use it on.

That sucks but I understand why. I wonder how much a dealer would charge to change the settings.

Some of the settings the dealer can't change. For example, they canlt set the tire size to anything above 32" or the gears lower than 4:10.

Procal also lets you set some "euro" light options that I imagine the Dealer can't do.

I know the dealer can't/won't change the TPMS settings.

I have driven about 60 miles now and have to say the Jeep drives better. The shift points seem to be much better, the "ave eco", speedo, and odo seem to actually be accurate. (and I seem to be speeding everywhere now). Jeep actually seems to accelerate and hold highway speed better, hard to discribe but better. Of course some of that is perception since the needle on the speedo is moving about 10% faster (accurate).

Hey Cole,

I went to 35s a few days ago and only drove around for a day or so before picking up the ProCal. I noticed very little difference in the power band and sifting from 32s to 35s.

Now that I adjusted everything I wish I had this thing before I went to 35s...just to test. I wonder if my JK Ruby was not set for 32s? I notice a huge difference in power and shifting after using the ProCal.

Here are my thoughts on all of it. (http://www.traildriven.com/showthread.php?p=1084#post1084)
