Not sure about were you are. I can tell you that i worked at a GM dealer and anything regarding the head speedo ect. Had to be sent out for recalibration to a licenced shop.I understand how you feel but i wouldnt touch it.We used Custone in Oshawa area in Ontario.

Just read this on a random forum searching what your asking:

because what you and the op are talking about is illegal, the only legal way to go about it is to have the dealership order a cluster that is programmed for the correct mileage, and the op blatenly stated "how do you roll back mileage on a ta" hardly legal at all

and like i said in the beggining if you are stupid enough to actually do it why in the hell would you post your criminal intent on the internet for everyone to read

I say as long as you own it outright and never sell it who the heck cares. But thats just me, not saying its the right way to go about it.

Had a buddy with a Jeep wrengler 99 or 98 (not the analog dials) and the digital read out for everything in his cluster would constantly go out. He could hit the top of it and it would turn back on but he said you hit your dash every five minutes in your car and see how you like it, it gets real old real fast. Needless to say the Jeep was traded for a new one years later and Im sure there was many miles unaccounted for on it, not his fault though, and he was scared to take it to a shop for fear it would be somehow be documented and his name be blemished or not get any trade in value on the ride..

lol wow, Z's reply was a little harsh. It may be illegal but you don't know that till someone tells you, and he's also wrong, you don't need a dealer to order you a cluster pre-programmed, there are lots of places out there who can reprogram your cluster perfectly legally lol

But I agree with you, and really, I'm not trying to break the law or looking to mislead - quite the opposite in fact, I actually want my odo to reflect the CORRECT mileage for my truck...I just don't want to pay some grease monkey $150 for the privilege lol

seems that i must have missed most of this post
BUT, my thought is, if i had say a 2006 vehicle that had a odometer go south for any reason & i found another odometer from an older year that would interchange, it would likely have many more miles on it that mine did, i would go to a licensed speedo shop, tell them my problem, let them document my current odometer reading & have them check out the workings & reset the junk yard unit. if they do it, its completely legal
of course they could just rebuild the unit that came with your truck too

I actually only changed the cluster because I wanted one with a rev counter lol
I've already fitted it. I don't know, I may get it changed at some point...or I'll just forget it cause I have no intention of selling the truck.
