Yes, when you swap the gauges swap the odometer out of yours into the new one. Very simple

if u don't want to roll the odometer that way just take yours off your current cluster and then bolt it onto the new one....there are only 3 screws holding it onto the gauge cluster.

Hi Ben...

I'm the one who wrote the how-to that's linked above. If you're scared about swapping it, I've got no problem doing the odo roll on the new cluster for ya so long I get a pic of your current milage. I'll even test to make sure the cluster's all functional. Shoot me a PM if you're interested.
