What do you guys use to calibrate the speedo on a 2005 F350 for larger tires Do you use a tuner of some sort?

Superlift Tru-speed. I just installed mine about a month ago and it works great. Even helped with shifting now that the speedo is in tune with the pcm.

The tru-speed works with 37s? How much did it cost.

You can go up to about a 36" tire with the factory stuff. They just go in and change the programming. If you don't mind for it being off just a little, you could get that done for free or little cost. If not, I would go with the truspeed.

I got mine done the dealership. Calibrated the abs sensor(same as the tru-speed) and they adjusted the speedometer. Cost me about half the tru-speed, and no shipping delay.

did you change the setting on the SCT for the revs/mile too, or leave it alone since you have the TruSpeed on there????

I think I'm gonna have to get a TRuSpeed soon, my speedo is sizeably off....evidently HAULING on the highway is about 65mph right now!
