Looks pretty capable to me! Trust me, if I had it to do all over again, I would chose a completely different path.:p

Tks Greg lots of sleepless night and 3 years of frustrations and I would change a few things also lol.
We did the best we could with the knowledge we have.

Sure is. I was checking his Cruiser out the other day! It's a solid looking rig.:)

I live off of Stevens Mill in Shannamara.

FYI...I figured out how to provide a VSS signal for the ecu's so the transmission shifts properly without input from the SLABS. This eliminates the need for wheel speed sensors and bypasses the ABS system. I used a GPS speedo module from Intellitronix
(http://www.intellitronix.com/gps-sender.html),
It supplies the ECU the proper pulse per mile signal (8000 pmm) that the ECU is looking for input as road speed. Use the Pink/Green (K/G) wire on connector C0504 pin 3 (It's the black connector on the slabs unit). Cut the wire, splice a connector on and feed the output of the speedo to the this wire, (Don't feed back to the connector) This will feed the rest of the systems looking for a VSS feed (Road speed) signal.

Works great, I have a accurate speedo and the transmission shifts properly...

Thanks Frank! Much appreciated. How was your trans working before this mod?

Like shit...

I had incorrect wheel speed going to it, it was off by 20mph. The reluctor on the toy axle is 48 tooth and the land rover ones are 60. I had input to the slabs, but it was really fucked up. I tried a couple of macgiver solutions, but nothing worked. The trans shifted, but was rough. It didn't go into limp mode until the toy wheel sensors died and when they were working, it would throw rough road codes because it wasn't getting input on all the sensor inputs. This really fixed all the problems by eliminating the slabs unit, it now shifts like it should and is within 2mph of the lowrance gps I run.

So this will allow me to completely ditch my SLABS unit?

Just ordered the unit. When it comes in I'll give you a call for instructions.

Thanks for the help!

I dunno, even without sprung hinges that looks like a lot of factory reinforcement has been removed. Are you running a hood with that much structural support removed and wheeling serious trails with it?
Um, yes. I kinda removed most of the sheetmetal from the bulkhead forward on my rig, so, yes, I can safely say I have removed a LOT of reinforcement, and on an RRC which does have spring-assist hinges.

Now, I'm off to trim so sheet metal!:shaking:

After all that brainstorming, it's finally resolved! Nice elegant solution.

Left you a VM. So, I'm cutting the Pink/Green wire, or just tapping a lead off of it, and then connecting the speedo sending unit (Intellitronix) to this wire?

That way the signal from the GPS unit is sending the proper signal into the SLABS so it thinks the wheels sensors are still connected - correct?

I like that front bumper. :smokin: Do you have any more pics of it? Pics straight from the side and straight from the top would be awesome.

The answers you seek are in the ETM.

greg, No, you are totally bypassing the slabs and sending the signal to the rest of the computers down the line. the slabs just averages the 4 input signals to 1 output. the rest of the system doesnt care as long as it gets the right signal.
