PLEASE NOTE: These units are special order and subject to varying lead time beyond our control. Please make sure you triple check your selected cluster before checking out as the system automatically places an order with the manufacturer.
Q: How does this work?
A: You place an order for a cluster using the menus above based on your market (US Spec or Export) cluster type and engine/fuel type. Upon delivery (after installing your new steering wheel controls that you sourced and HarnessDr.com harness) simply plug the unit in and you’ll be golden; yes it’s really that simple.
Q: Does this include the steering wheel?
A: No there are many types and colors of wheels it would be very difficult to properly address them all. You are responsible for sourcing the wheel and harness.
Q: Can you do this for Export (Metric clusters)?
A: Yes we can supply them as well via the drop down.
Q: What does “NO AUTO STOP” mean in the cluster selection?
A: This selection is for two types of trucks, the first being heavy duty (2500/3500) trucks with the L8T 6.6L GAS engine. The second type is those built during the 2021/2022 model years that had an optional (or forced) Auto Stop delete. You can identify if you have one of these by looking at your tachometer and if you DON’T have a marking labeled “AUTO STOP” these are the clusters you are looking for.
Q: Will this work in my new 2022.5+ 1500 Refresh truck?
A: No this product is specifically for the 2019-2022 T1 trucks if you have a 2022.5 this is not the product for that application. You can verify you have a 2022.5 if you have the “new refresh” 1500 version truck or simply check your RPO’s for “J22” or if the last 8 of your vin starts with “NG5” or “NZ5” or higher for example “NG6” or “NZ6” etc. While there are some lower trim level 2022.5 Trucks that appear to have the previous generation interior/electronics this is not the case as everything electrical subsystem wise is completely different and not compatible. This WILL work for all 2022 and 2023 2500/3500’s with the IOR infotainment.
Q: Will I lose any features?
A: No you should not lose any features that you had before however due to changes in operation certain functions may operate differently and we’ve tried to detail any of those here in these FAQ’s.
Q: Will I gain any features?
A: You may gain some features as the 4.2″ clusters have slightly different menus.
Q: Can you delete warning indicators for items I may have removed from the Vehicle??
A: Yes we can, this would all be custom and priced as such, contact us for details.
Q: I added Fog Lamps to my truck will the indicator show?
A: We set up all units for Fog Lamp support just in case you choose to add them down the road or have already done so.
Q. Why don’t you ask for my Mileage? What happens to my odometer?
A. Your odometer will sync to your vehicle at install at the correct current milage this plug and play with no user intervention required.
Q: What about my engine hours?
A: Generally these ship set at zero. These are not required at a federal or state level however if you wish to keep them we need a report from a dealership using GDS2 software showing them. They can print a report showing your vin as well as idle and total hours. The hours should be noted on the order and a copy of the report scanned and emailed to us for record keeping.
Q: Do I need steering wheel controls to use this cluster?
A: Yes you need properly retrofit steering wheel controls to interact with the menus on these units. Adding this cluster along with the proper steering wheel controls and harness from HarnessDR.com found HERE adds full audio steering wheel controls as well as cluster controls to boot to IOR equipped trucks!
Q: My MPG/Range at install is WAY off is that normal?
A: Completely Normal! The new cluster has no baseline yet. You should start to see it normalize (or be close to completely normal) after one full tank of fuel has been consumed and the vehicle filled up. The remote app may take longer to normalize as it uses a “lifetime” MPG reading.
Q: Do I need to send in my factory cluster?
A. Nope! We are sending you a factory fresh unit.

I installed this cluster last night in my 2020 Custom Trail Boss, along with the wire from Dr. Harness. It was a relatively easy mod, although the wire installation was a bit cumbersome (mainly because of my aging eyesight). I am happy to report that all of the steering wheel controls work on the new steering wheel, and the backlighting is also functional. It was an excellent upgrade. In addition, the cluster arrived in just over a week from the initial order. Very satisfied with the purchase.

Great service and delivered earlier than expected. Gauge cluster adds a whole other element to the Custom Trail Boss.
