Talking Sport Trac Cluster Swap

Swapped out my old cluster for an explorer sport trac cluster. swap was easy, really just taking out and putting back in bolts. took about an hour.

Thanks to TomN for the cluster, and fast shipping!

I would probably just leave it and add up the mileage as I go....I will probably never sell it so I wouldn't have to worry about the odometer reading right

If you take both clusters apart you can just swap the odometer part......
