A hell of a lot.

Have you got drive on your transmission?
That's a blank off plate for it.

You'll also need a 1:1 speedo.

Check your trans case, after 76 or so they didn't machine the FX (except for the wide glide) trans case for a speedo drive. Also they did not install the drive ring on the gear cluster for the drive.
