Help with speedo gear

I am running a 33" tires with 4.10 gears on an automatic tranny. I need to have my speedo calibrated. I am hearing a lot about other options such as Superchips, Skyjacker Truspeed, and orange (35 tooth) speedo gear.

Which one will work better? Anyone have used any of these?

I have 33" wheels and 4.10 gearing. I put in a 36 tooth speedo gear and its right on. You can get the speedo gear from Quadratec but its like $40!! I bought mine used off EBAY for 12.75 shipped and it took two seconds to change. I would recommend that, I'm not sure the speedometer is controlled in such a way that a tuner would fix it, at least I never heard of that as an option!

This gives you a step by step to changing the gear:

I just changed mine this week as well. It went really fast except that I put it in upside down the first time and it didn't register. I don't know if an Auto will make a difference but I wouldn't think so since the speedo gear is in the back of the transfer case.

Here is another link that will help in installing the gear.

All you need to do to recalibrate your speedometer is to replace your speedometer gear with a 36 tooth speedometer gear. Here's how to do that: Changing Your Jeep Speedometer Gear

Replacing the speedometer gear can be done in less than 5 minutes.

Only Rubicons require electronic speedometer add on boxes to calibrate.

There are several known inaccurate charts floating around out there. The chart I gave you is accurate and has been gps verified.
