When changing tire size or axle gear ratio's your original speedometer gear will not register the same MPH as it did with the stock gears and tires. The MPH will either read higher or lower than what the vehicle is actually traveling. You will need to change the speedometer transfer case gear to the correct tooth count to obtain the proper MPH reading on your Speedometer. Use the Tire and Gear Ratio Chart to determine which Tooth Gear you will need to correct your MPH speedometer reading.
The part looks just like the existing gear but the tube on the opposite end from the gear is not as deep as the one I was replacing so the cable would not insert enought to reconnect the existing speedo cable.

5.02001 XJ, work perfectly
Works like it is supposed to.
I have a 2001 XJ. Not sure why 4wheelparts doesn't list this as compatible if you do a vehicle specific search
Is it the right gear for my Jeep Wrangler TJ (Canada)?

I have a 1989 Jeep Wagoneer Limited (XJ) the technical description says it will fit, but when I do the compatibility check it says it is not for my vehicle. I am confused now. I know I need the long shaft and a 38 tooth will fix my speedo reading.

Thanks for the question. This would be the correct 38 tooth long speedometer gear you would need for your 1989 Jeep Cherokee.
