Got my dash fully together and the interior cleaned. Sadly I only took pics of the outside today... But they look good!

















Sorry, I know, picture overload...

Lucky, I was looking for a silver face cluster when I found my white one, so I got it instead.

Here anything 2000 and newer gets ripped apart in no time at the junkyards. I got lucky that I got my cluster when I did.

I have no idea how I found this, it is really rare to get anything with the newest style headlights here so a 03 is a crazy new find. Where I went had 2 03s, a couple 02s and so on and I noticed right off the bat every cluster was taken, even if the cluster was an ugly black one. This truck was put off in the corner and picked apart very well, so I had little hopes for anything (truthfully, I was not even looking for a cluster as I doubted there would be one) and there it was sitting!

2nd silver cluster I have ever seen, and man do I like it! I also hate that I found it now tho, as my white cluster I have now is still not completly installed (2 bolts left that I lost and got at the jy today) so now do I wait for a while or start modding the silver one? I like how I finally got the white one to look, and it would be a shame to take it out and sell it before I even do 1k miles on it! But a silver cluster would match my interior better anyways...

No big updates yet, hopefully there is a cluster update soon...

For now, I put on rear shackles amd removed my hitch. I say put on shackles and not replaced because there was literally nothing but a plate mounted to my frame left.

So I realized I have no pictures of my white cluster back in with sanded faces. Let's change that.



Yep, that is the only picture I took of them so far. I'm shocked by that!

Anyways, I should probably update you on the status of my Silver cluster. It's a paperweight because I am busy and I like how it looks on my desk. Don't worry, it will be put in by the end of the month (end of the week if I am not lazy).



And, like usual, I took some nice pics, so random photo time.

First, finally took more pics of the sanded white cluster.





Second, took it out to never put in again.



Third, started working on my silver cluster.





Fourth, damaged an overlay slightly...



Fifth, called it a day.

Watch for the white cluster to go up for sale or pm me before it does if you want it!

Thought it would be fun to have before/after shots of my cluster mod both in and out of my truck, tonight is the out of truck shots.

Before:



After:



It looks so good I almost don't want to put it in and loose a desk ornament.

Ok, so honestly, I thought this would turn out terrible and that I was going to ruin My silver cluster.



Nope. By far my favorite mod to date.



Look at that beauty!



Oh how she glows!



I'm in love!

Really nice job on the silver cluster! Now I can see all your effort that was put in.
Does the dimmer work with the cluster lights?

Thanks! It's been a huge pain but something I've been preparing for for a year, so glad it's done, I love how it looks!

And the dimmer does work, but not a lot, as I used cheap Amazon LEDs to make sure I knew what I wanted... I am considering getting $20 LEDs, and a custom dimmer switch but for now I am waiting for these to die (one already has). And I keep my dimmer all the way up.
