Regearing speedo gear

I have just changed diff gears in my 2001 Wrangler Sport going from 3.07 to 4.88 mainly because I am now running 35" BFG T/A Tires. My speedo is now running abt. 30% too fast according to my GPS speed. Where can I go to get the proper gear for my speedo???

I just did a ford 8.8 on my rear with 4.56 and a detroit locker.

I need to change my speedo gears. I have 33' tires but plan on going to 35' in the future. should I run the speedo gear based on what I have now (33) or what I will be getting????

Changed mine out in less than 5 minutes. Don't worry about disconnecting the harness from the speed sensor. It isn't nessesary.

You might want to order the O-ring for it as well, sometimes they can get damaged in the swap. Just a thought...

On the to do list. Right now I am enjoying my jeep that does "85" mph on the highway.
