    Hey guys, hopefully someone can help me out here. I just got my 09 DC lifted 3" with tuff country kit and 285/70/17 Nitto TG's and the speedo is off by about 5mph. How can i get this fixed? i know that Re gearing your truck can get rid of it but thats expensive. Is there any way to just get the Speedo calibrated to the right speed to compensate for the bigger tires?? its not a huge deal, but it would really be nice to have this issue fixed.

    Thanks!!

    Yeah, i could do that, but i hate the way it looks. I would love to have it just look like stock without some big screen sticking out somewhere where it doesnt fit in. haha im picky.

    Had tons on the old Taco's.... new Tundra is pretty stock
    to the best of my knowledge, there isnt a calibrator out there for our trucks. Sorry. The SG2 or regearing is really the only options. Just to be clear though, the SG2 doesnt change the factory speedo, but accounts for the tire size you input to it and displays the correct speed on its own screen; the factory speedo remains inaccurate.
