Did you install really short tires? Your truck probably drives the speedo from the transmission. If so you can change the drive gear to match your tires. Electronic speedos can be changed with a programmer.

If your truck was originally delivered in Canada it might be showing your speed in Kilometers per hour instead of Miles per hour. Just a thought. HTH. -Jim
