Speedo Calibration Tool?

My 22.5's are coming in a couple days. From my research, I have found that the dealer can only go up one size to fix the speedo. Is anyone making a tool yet for the 2011 to adjust speedo for tire sizes? I don't want a tuner or anything. Just something to fix my speedometer.

I dont think there is anything out besides a full tuner from H&S, and even then it will only adjust for up to 35" tall tires

I've thought about going ahead and getting the H&S because I figured way down the road I would tune anyways, but I am not planning to yet. The only thing is, I had the Spartan on my 2010 and liked it but really never used the DashDaq. I turned it on, but never really felt like I needed it. I am definitely going H&S this time if I do delete later on, but honestly I think the XRT would better fit my needs. I wonder when this would be available? My tires are supposed to measure 36.6". If I could program to 35" then that would still be a lot closer than the stock 31" tires, so I could handle that.

How much lift for 36.6"?

No lift. These will be 22.5" Alcoas with Big Rig Highway tires which are narrow. They are supposed to fit on a stock suspension. From what I have seen on other trucks like mine, I may have to trim the inner fender plastic. I might do a leveling kit depending on how it fits, but do not wan't to alter the suspension for the first time ever on this truck. My truck only sits 1 1/2" high in the back so I am hoping I can just leave it stock.

Just received a reply from H&S and it looks like the XRT should be out in around a month, so I am going to hold off for it.
