Cheapest way to correct speedo....

as some of you have read, my lift and 37's are comin in tomorrow at 9:30 am, hoping to have everything on around mid-monday if everything works out......

well, to be honest with ya, I've plucked all the money off the money tree with this one purchase! lol
So the money tree has to take a rest and take a chance to replenish. At the same time my speedo is gonna be a good amount off going from 275/65/20 to 355/60/20

Wondering what my most cost effective speedo calibrator is gonna be. I've seen the TirePaq, and how it can just plug and play like my SCT, BUT will it work with my SCT........and is there ANYTHING like it that doesn't cost the steep price of my SOUL!

I'm not changing gears any time soon....if my truck doesnt like 37's I'll go to 35's when they wear out!.

I was looking at the TirePaq since it doesnt look like it has to be wired in, where the TruSpeed looks like it does. Price is identical on EBay and prolly everywhere else.

I most worried about not being able to run the TirePaq for the speedo and the SCT at the same time......ORRRRRRR how much of a pain the TruSpeed will be to install.

As far as the SCT changin the speedo, everywhere else I've heard it doesn't, but does change tranny parameters accordingly for final gear ratio change with bigger tires.

Thanks for the help..... Raul, I'll prolly be getting with you again as soon as my wallet recovers from the thrashing I gave it on tires and lift! Just keep me away from the Recon stuff....I already impulse bought the tinted cab lights and been eye-balling the mirror lights, tail lights, and 3rd brake light.

edit: Oh yeah, and now the Harley style headlights too.......my finace is gonna KILL me if I get anything else!!!!!

you guys are creating a monster, keep control of your money, use seperate checking accounts and split the bills. took me 2 marriages to figure that out, but it works great.
