So I have found an 09/10 cluster they look great.... I have yet to buy it and the guy I am getting it from will program the cluster to have my mileage....

I have yet to buy it yet because I want to make sure everything os plug and play and will work...

The supplier says that it will work, but I am still unsure....


Any advice????? anyone do that mod? Let me know

I know I've seen info about this conversion for 07 Escalade and up. The gauges are a lot better looking. I will search and see if I can get you the link to the info. I was also wondering if this would work for a Denali as well? I've been searching for info and can't find anything.

Look at the new cluster compared to the old cluster. Pull up some pictures online. There not really better, I just think they look a lot better. Preference on look I guess. If you look at the video I posted about the fastlane 427SS, It will show the new gauge cluster which they installed on the truck.

I apologize for resurrecting this thread but did anyone do this successfully as in "plug n play"??? How easy is it to remove and swap out the cluster from the dash? So from what I read the mileage has to be programmed into the cluster. Isn't the mileage stored in the vehicle computer somewhere or do we have to pay the dealer to program?

Thanks...JDG

IMO, It's not worth the trouble, not much of a change, that is probably why the thread died in the first place. I would probably spend that money towards a new 2001 NAV unit or some other noticeable upgrade. Again, this is only my opinion.

I wonder about the legality of it also. I recently imported an Audi TT from the US to Canada and I was told the instrument cluster was untouchable, as that might be considered tempering with the odometer. So I have to live with MPH speedometer with tiny secondary KM/H markings. That said I am sure there is a way it can be done, as these parts may fail and need to be replaced.
