94 F150 gearing question

I just picked up a 94 F150 with a 5.0/aod combo to use as my new daily driver/tow vehicle. I know its not the best option but its way better than the 99 Ranger I was using before and the price was to good to pass up.

Right now its sitting on some 235/75-15 tires on steel rims and Im pretty sure it has 3.55 gears. Im goin to get new General Grabber AT2 31x10.5 for it on aluminum wheels and plan to swap a stock L/S and some 3.73 gears I have.

Do think this would throw the speedo off much or is it going to be a wash pretty much? And if I ever decide to up the gear to 4.10's or drop back to a 28-29" tire how do you re-calibrate these to keep the speedo correct?

just need to get the right speedo gear for the gears. i'd imagine the 31's and 3.73 wouldn't throw it off by much. also, you sure that trans is an AOD, thought that year had the e4od?

Actually it has the pan of a AOD so Im assuming its a AODE. I talked to a couple different trans shops before I ordered my TransGo shiftkit and I was told it could be any of those 3.

my brothers 96 bronco got the speed off the rear abs sensor on the 8.8. When we regeared it from 3.55 to 4.10, the speedo was accurate according to the GPS, whithout doing anything.

i forgot to say that, i think best way is just to do GPS if you can. also, if it has a TV cable up to throttle for kickdown on trans, it's an AOD. of it's electronic then it's the AODE or E4od

It does have a TV Cable. You sure it couldnt be a AODE? I didnt think the AOD got the on/off button for OD.

The speedo is electronically calibrated on that. Google it. Easy as pie. All you need is a jumper cable from cable under the glove box and a calculator. I lost all my bookmarks otherwise I would post the link. There are several. Takes longer to get the crap together than it does to program.

I did in fact find out it is the aode. I mistaked the cruise control cable for the tv cable.

I will look for whatever it is your talking about.
