2003 6.0 vortec swap

Hi, I'm fairly new so pardon my lack of experience. I recently bought a jeep that had been totaled, restored, and had a Chevy 6.0 and manual transmission swapped into it. I bought it not thinking to check any gauges. As I drove it I noticed that none of the dash gauges work. The jeep is a 2003 wrangler with a 2002 Chevy 6.0 and transmission. What must I do to connect the gauges? Most importantly the speedometer and fuel level gauges. If any additional information is needed I'll reply as soon as possible! Thanks!

Re: 2003 6.0 vortec swap

Welcome to the garage.
Im not familiar with the wrangler, but i presume that the information for the instruments is coming from the PCM (powertrain control module) and that the signal is send from the PCM via a data bus to the instrument cluster. Now you need to know how this is done with Chevrolet. You maybe will need to change the instrument cluster with one from Chevy.
