    Does anyone know where you can get your speedometer adjusted for bigger tires? Also does anybody know what the stock tire size is on an 05 4x4 V6 Tacoma?? I have 305/70/17 Goodyear MT-R's right now which are about equivalent to a 34" tire..

    Anyways any input would help alot, i wanna actually know how fast i'm going and how far i'm actually going on a tank of gas. Thanks

    i think the scangauge II (the one everyones buying as a group buy) can display accurate speeds. I'm not exactly sure though...i might be wrong...its also supposed to display gas mileage

    I think the only device they make for Tacomas to recalibrate the speedo is for the 1st generation trucks. Nothing out yet for the 2nd.
