You could always disconnect the speed sensor on the rear axle. Sits on the driver side toward the front. (See Pic)
That would make the speedometer not to work, but everything else would.

Why? Who are you trying to defraud by doing this?

Pull the fuse... When I shorted out my dome light, it blew a fuse, and it turned out the dome light fuse was connected to the speedometer and the wipers, and maybe something else too... But this was with an older truck than yours too.

I dont know how to do this but I just gotta know why? Don't see any reason at all for disabling it, maybe recalibrating but not getting rid of it completely....
