    Good point but if you have GPS that shows your speed (that reminds me of planes trains and automobiles cause that is what the cop asks John candy (I forget who he played in the movie)

    But it won't hurt the truck to run without the cluster just be careful if the op don't want to risk the cops then don't drive the truck

    It would be a good excuse to get out of a ticket though! just point to the hole in the dash and say that somebody stole it!
