Calibrating speedo???

Anyone know if there's a way to calibrate the speedo when running oversized tires?

I have not looked into this yet but I read in a magazine that this web site should help you out. www.speedometershop.com

According to the magazine article you should also be able to go to your local dealer and they might be able to help you out.

In their FAQ section, they answered my question. It looks like it's not a simple tweak of a screw like I had hoped. You have to change the drive gear in the transmission. It's something I've lived with for 6 years now anyway, so no biggie. I recently did a gear swap and it changed again, so that's why I asked.

It really isn't that hard. while you can't just 'turn a screw', all you have to do is purchase the new speedo gear, crawl under your Jeep, take the old one out and the new one in. The speedo gear is located on the output shaft of the transfer case, its pretty easy to get to.

Thanks for the info guys. I found this website that pretty much explains everything. http://www.gotjeep.net/speedo.html No more excuses when getting pulled over by the man....then again it's never worked anyway.
