Swapping out instrument clusters

I have a ram express with the bare bones instrument cluster... can I swap it out for a sport or something else with the MPG calculator and other features and have it just plug and play?

The dealer will likely tell you that it "cannot be done" just like they "cannot add a remote starter, or keyless entry". All of the wiring is present, it is a little more complicated than simply "plug and play" but not to difficult. The easiest thing to do is find a wrecked truck with similar mileage for the gauge cluster, and I believe the cluster is the exact same from all of the 4th gen trucks.
That's exactly what I was intending on doing... getting a cluster from a junkyard. The mileage doesn't bother me too much because if I ever sold it I'd swap it back out and add the mileage up, but most likely I will keep the truck until it becomes a mud buggy beater. Basically I was just wanting the better look and the ability to calculate MPG's... steering wheel controls I could care less about
