    Thanks!
    That's Great hear!!.....Your Speedometer being off, also may be due to a change in tire size....meaning if the Overall Diameter of your Tires Changed from the Overall Diameter of the Stock Tires that came with the Truck from the Factory.....that would cause your Speedometer to be off.

    I suppose that could be true. I bought the truck used and it had new tires on it. I don't think the tire size is different but who knows. Thanks again.

    The way to check to see if your Tires are Different from what they came with from the Factory......opening the driver door and there should be a White Sticker and on it will be......the Weight of the Truck...the Vin # Number and what Size Tires and Rims the truck had on it from the Factory.

    Yeah, I'm aware of the sticker showing passenger tire size and inflation, etc. Current tires are the correct size. Like I said, not a biggie. It's only off by 1MPH or so.
