Try this: http://www.4wheelparts.com/Hypertech...6297&t_pl=2708

This is an inline module that you just need to add. I hear it works well.

You can get it recalibrated at a shop, or buy it yourself and do it yourself.
You dont need to re-gear.

RE-GEAR!!! - it will be more fun and better money spent - that is unless your off roading consists of your driveway and the off ramp to the mall!

Hes still gonna have his speed off hes gonna have better RPM's if he re-gears, but he's talking about his speed being off.
He needs to buy TRUSPEED

My response is from loosing a R&P when I thought - I don't need to re-gear - but like I said, if the idea of off roading is level ground - no problem. But if that's what your doing why get bigger wheels - these trucks do pretty well with the stock stuff if you are not wheeling hard. Plus if you keep the stock stuff, when the r&p or other driveline components go, the warranty will still work. With larger wheels and tires they may reject the claim.

GO BIG! or stay small. The choice is yours!

I looked at your avatar and it says your in Montana. Don't know where but the quick fix is to get new speedo gears. Here is a local speedo shop in Billings. If this is too far then google "Speedometer repair shops in (your city + Montana). good luck.
