2019+ (T1) Denali / High Country Cluster Upgrade Kit

(4 customer reviews)



This exclusive product allows for factory correct operation of a brand new (full warranty) T1 Denali or High Country cluster into a non Denali or High Country truck with plug and play simplicity! We can also suppress warnings/errors etc please email for pricing on those applications as they are custom. NOTE: The Denali style version is whats pictured above.

This product is 100% custom to your vehicle and options and can be tweaked for mods such as added OEM navigation, added front park assist, HUD hardware retrofit etc.

We setup all clusters for Navigation regardless as it will allow you to turn off the speed limit menus and simply enable them if you retrofit navigation. We’ve found this to be the simplest method to make everyone happy and negate the need to send the unit back for additional programming.

Please note: In order to Utilize the Music, Navigation (if Equipped) and Phone menus you will need to have an IOS or IOT radio; the IOR does not have the capability to drive those menus.

Please Note: These ARE special order and subject to current lead time.


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 simply plug the unit in and you’ll be golden; yes it’s really that simple.

Q: How do I know which radio I have?
A: By scanning for the QR code on your build label (likely located in the drivers door jamb) and looking for one of the three radio types in these particular vehicles which are: IOR (7″ or 8″ Base Radio), IOS (8″ Midlevel without Navigation) or IOT (8″ Uplevel with Navigation).

Q: Can you do this for Export (Metric clusters)?
A: Yes we can supply them as well via the drop down.

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 Denali/High Country clusters have slightly different menus. We can also enable things you have added such as indicators for front park assist or the Navigation menu if you have added factory navigation which is why we ask for those of you with the IOS radio. If you have added FACTORY options that your truck didn’t have please put what you have added in the notes section.

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. What Menus are included in the Expanded Menu Set?
A: A true un buffered/unscaled coolant temperature readout. The factory gauge is heavily buffered/skewed; This reads true coolant temp. Top consumers: Shows which features currently being used are costing you fuel economy; and how much. Economy Trend: Shows fuel economy on a scale of 0-30 MPG over the course of 30 miles. Individual Oil Temp and Oil Pressure Readouts. A combined menu that shows Oil Temp and Oil Pressure on one page. Performance Timer: Timer can be set from 0-60 or from any stop/start point you choose. Lap Timer (2020-21 only): Can be used to clock “laps” or any time between points/events. G-Force Meter (2020-21 Only): Shows instant and peak-hold Lateral and Longitudinal G-Forces exerted on the vehicle.

Q: What is the HUD Retrofit Option?
A: This enables the unit to drive a heads up display. Yes it can be installed no we do not provide support for that end of it but you should reach out to HarnessDr.com for wiring harness info to make that switch. If you have forward collision alert and are not 110% set on doing the HUD upgrade we recommend you do NOT choose this option as it will disable the LED Forward Collision Alert indicator.

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 are reset to zero. These are not required at a federal or state level however if you wish to keep them we need a print out from a dealership using GDS2 software. They can print a report showing your vin as well as idle and total hours.

Q: Do I need steering wheel controls to use this cluster?
A: Yes you need factory (or properly retrofit) steering wheel controls to interact with the menus on these units.

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. No, we only need you to send the Denali cluster you are sourcing (if you are choosing to supply it)

    I was a little hesitant about ordering this, because I wasn’t sure if it was worth the amount of money I was going to spend. Well let me tell you… It definitely was worth every penny!
    First….. Ordering the item was seamless. It arrived in about a week from order date. Lightning fast!!

    Second….. installation was a breeze. There are videos on YouTube, explaining the install process, step-by-step. If you have any “man skills” (or “woman skills”) you should breeze through this in less than an hour from start to finish. Remove some trim, remove seven #7 hex bolts, and about 4 torx bolts from around the radio. You have to pull the radio trim slightly out, to get the dash trim out (super easy).

    Third…. After install, this thing is beautiful. Everything on the center screen is bigger than it was on my stock cluster. Not only that, but the clarity and style is amazing too. The feature I love the best, is when I put it in tow/haul, the volt gauge changes to trans temp. That pretty awesome.

    Finally….. Buy this thing!! You won’t be disappointed in the product, or the customer service.

    Back in May of 2020, I saw several videos on YouTube of people upgrading their cluster (speedometer) for a digital with bigger digits and all digital gauges. I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to do it since the price for a new cluster was about $900 and some change. I kept reviewing videos of Mods for GMCs and contacted the guys from Wams and they advised me to get a used cluster for half the price. I followed their instructions and purchased the correct part number from the list provided by Wams. That was the OEM GMC 8 digit number from my 2019 Gmc Sierra. I found a used GMC Denali Sierra cluster on Ebay for about $350. I didn’t think it was worth it since I still needed the programing. After doing the Math I decided to give it a try and I rolled the dice and took a chance with them. I paid for the programing and I was contacted immediately by a representative ( I didn’t get his name) who was very patient with me and my million of questions regarding the programming. He was very helpful and understanding. They were a few confusing details regarding the programing and he explained to me everything. I also purchased a parking assist sensor module and he helped me with the programing and the step by step instructions on shipping the items. Even with this crazy Covid-19 the guys from Wams were very fast on programing and shipping the items back.

    After reviewing about 10 YouTube instalation videos, i installed my cluster in about 10 minutes. The installation was very easy. This was a plug and play. My display looks amazing, I just wished that the guys at Wams can do other digital options for the displays. I love the larges icons on my display. I still haven’t done the installation of my parking assist module. I still need to purchase my front sensors and harnesses. I had such a great experience with Wams and the amazing customer service. I would definitely do business with them again. Just followed the instructions and you won’t be disappointed!!!


    Sincerely Vic!

    Working with Chris has been an amazing experience. I recently purchased a 2021 Silverado Trail Boss and was really turned off with how cheap the dash cluster looked. After doing some research on cluster compatibility I stumbled across this website and shot a message off to Chris to ask some questions. I am a much bigger fan of the Denali cluster than the High Country cluster and Chris was able to program one to work flawlessly in my Silverado. It has completely changed the interior feel of the truck and now actually feels like a $60,000.00 truck. GM Really dropped the ball with these cheap dashes, my 2015 Sierra had a nicer cluster!

    If you are considering this upgrade, do it without hesitation. The product and customer service is second to none.

    Thanks WAMS!

    Seamless! I’m extremely happy with the results 🙂 I came across the upgrade in a group forum and decided to follow through. Ordering was simple, installing was just as easy….. This looks much better in my 20 Silverado Trail Boss, I’m not sure why GM cheapened out on this part of the truck! These guys communicated well and were quick to answer any of my questions. Well worth the money IMO!
    Thank you WAMS!
