I looked at my repair database and it came back inconclusive. The only thing I know is that is states your cluster is non-serviceable and if anything is bad, you replace the whole unit. I know for Chevies, you can take them apart and replace pretty much anything as I'd had several apart for modifications.

On the plus side, you could always make a custom dash or at least a custom gauge panel with aftermarket gauges. I've seen it done a few times with great results in looks and function.
2011 RCLB Silverado, It's got the power I need.

I'll had to look at all this. I know on the jeepforum thread that was posted he used both ECUs I believe. Maybe I miss read. I like the dash of the TJ. So I dont want to get a new dash. I would consider different gauges if I could make it look good. I saw one but it got rid of the space between the clear plastic and gauge panel. I didn't like that. That seemed to "in your face". That was my thought when I first looked at it.

I am in the middle of swapping the 4.3 l in place of the 2.5 in my 97 wrangler. The mechanical stuff is pretty easy. The wiring is giving me trouble. I have had the GM harness and ECM redone. I am currently going through the jeep wiring to figure out what I do and Don't need. I figure I will need the fuel pump and speedometer. Plan to use temp and oil press sensors from the jeep in the GM block. I would assume that this swap would be similar to GM V8 swap. Any advice or diagrams on what jeep wiring I will to keep?
