if the engine has had regular oil filter and oil changes
then NO ,, 143,000 kilometers is not a-lot of mileage for that truck

the metric gauge cluster will work fine

( there is no difference between them )

as you said ,, you can shift between them

1 KM is roughly 5/8 mile.

i've read something about the 04+ clusters requiring reprogramming at the dealership when you switch or take them apart. not sure much more than that, but i would research it some more before doing it.
