Default Bought used gauges/instrument cluster dont know what to do about the different miles!

I bought used gauges/instrument cluster today from a junkyard out of an explorer. My truck has 94700 miles on the stock gauges and the new gauges have 120308 miles. What should i do about the difference in the miles?
thanks, shawn

I have a friend who bought a lexus. The mileage on it was exempt. Which means somebody either changed the cluster or maybe the dealer rolled back the numbers. Either way, maybe just keep track yourself. That way if you sell it, just write down the true mileage.

Thanks everyone for your help! i rolled the odometer back to my trucks actual miles and put everything back in. I took the truck for a ride and it still counts miles only the odometer shows the space in between the numbers on the dial so ill have to pull everything out again and fix that.

you could have just swapped the counting part but i guess what you did works
