He said he put an XT trans in, did you put a 3.70 trans in where a 3.90 one was?
Excellent catch. However, are not all the non-turbo 4wd transmissions 3.90/1?
I would tend to believe that the speedo gear in the trans could be worn or possibly different which could represent the difference in readings.
And, if the OP states his speedo is that far off then I tend to believe that it is. Just because your speedo doesn't match that doesn't mean his doesn't...

Now, that being said, you could explain the slower speed by using a 3.70 transaxle. Have you engaged 4wd yet? It should not be 10 mph off by changing to a 5speed as long as the correct final drive ratios were matched.
