Depends on what speed sensors you're referring to. You still have the WSS's on the truck but you're right, there should only be the output sensor on the trans.

Replaced the speed sensor on the transmission, not the transfer case. Cleared the code, and ALL IS FIXED!

Very easy fix, but if anyone has to do this have the new sensor ready when you take the old one out. Tranny fluid comes POURIN out!! LOL
