I think if you did a good job it would look good, but i think painting it and getting it to come out clean looking might be tough

If your interested in selling them let me know, just not paying $50 for them.

Re: Chrome rings on instrument cluster

To get a new instrument cluster you have to get one from the same basic package as yours don't you? IE same engine, drivetrain, model year.

If I get motivated to pull it apart and pull them off I'll just send them to you. However, it doesn't bother me THAT much, and it's friggin' cold outside...

Cool, not a problem. Just keep me in mind if you do!

So the mileage is stored in the cluster and not in the PCM?

Am also interested in this mod to class up my Laredo. Is it as simple as removing the plastic cluster trim bezel and then removing the clear cluster cover (while leaving the cluster installed on the vehicle)?

I would remove the cluster to make it easier to work with.....but yes if you want to do it that way...you can.

Re: Chrome rings on instrument cluster

i bought a used limited cluster off ebay before I saw these. the stock chrome rings are part of the dial faces. Took off the needles, swapped the dial faces with my original cluster, put the needles back on, done. Disconnected battery to be safe, but never removed harness from original cluster anyhow. Nothing broke, chrome rings look great.

the cluster cost me $50.
