instrument cluster
 
if i were to put in a newer instrument cluster would i have to take it to the dealer for reprograming or would it automatically show the correct mileage? i have an 06 laredo and am looking to put in a 07 or 08 limited cluster.

I'm guessing the dealership for reprogramming.

I changed my. No reprograming, the mileage of the cluster is the one that will display.

Well, you are gonna mess with the mileage, if the cluster has more or less mileage then your Jeep.

Dealers are not set up to reprogram clusters, and the factory will not reprogram a cluster that is anything different than the exact one that came with the vehicle.

You may run into issues when switching clusters, as the later you get in WK model years the more features and options that are integrated into the cluster programming and wiring.

2005-2007 clusters use three connectors (16+20+20 pin). 2008-2010 clusters use two connectors (20+20 pin).

Every single model year WK has different pinout assignments for the clusters.

What model/model year WK do you have and what model/model year cluster did you install?

I have an 05 WK Laredo and my cluster is from an 05 Limited. It works.

yep....I tried an 08 cluster in my 06...just like what Milous said. 2 plugs vs. 3 and the rpm's didnt work at all. The cluster will show whatever it is from

Yes, staying within the same model year will *usually* work out ok.

What about putting a SRT cluster in a Limited?
