Description

This exclusive kit allows for factory correct operation of a brand new (full warranty) fully programmed T1 Denali or High Country cluster into a non Denali or High Country Pickup with plug and play simplicity! We can also suppress warnings/errors etc please email for pricing on those applications as they are custom. Please make sure you read the entire Description / FAQ prior to ordering.

NOTE: The Denali style version is whats pictured above, High Country below in the gallery

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 should you choose to upgrade down the line.

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.

**THIS PRODUCT IS FOR PICKUPS ONLY. IT WILL NOT WORK ON 2022.5 or 2023 1500 “REFRESH TRUCKS”. THERE WILL BE RESTOCKING FEES IF YOU ORDER THIS FOR A REFRESH TRUCK DESPITE NUMEROUS WARNINGS HERE NOT TO**

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 a paid order with the manufacturer. This product is NOT compatible with 2022.5 or 2023 1500 (Refresh) trucks. You can find more information on how to identify these particular vehicles in the FAQ.

FAQ:

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) model year (which must match your trucks model year), 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). NOTE: The Speed Limit display requires navigation to drive it. Knowing this is no longer a requirement to order however you should know what radio you have in order to know what to expect feature wise.

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

Q: Can you put a Denali Cluster into a Chevrolet or a High Country Cluster into a GMC?
A: Yes we have developed a way to keep all of the gauges looking proper and have the proper startup/welcome logo and vehicle icons in this situation; If you’d like to do this you’ll need to purchase the expanded menu set option. Also the Denali cluster physically has a “GMC” on the tachometer bezel so keep that in mind when considering doing this.

Q: What does “NO AUTO STOP” mean in the cluster selection?
A: This selection is for applications that do not have Auto Stop such as heavy duty gas trucks with the L8T 6.6L engine, those trucks built during the 2021/2022 model years that had an optional (or forced) Auto Stop delete or the lower trim trucks without Auto Stop. 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. There are no “Non Auto Stop” units available for the 2019 model year as these clusters were not used with any engines that did not have Auto Stop functionality however the auto stop clusters work just fine in that instance.

Q: I saw this list goes to 2023 is that the new ALL digital 12.3″ Screens in the new refreshed trucks?
A: No. While these are still model year specific 2022 here refers to the pre 2022.5 refresh “limited” trucks which are basically carry over 2021’s with 2022 VIN’s.

Q: Ok can you make the 2022.5 12.3″ all digital unit work in the 2019-2022 trucks?
A: No. Those utilize an entirely different electrical architecture.

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.

Q: Will this work for my 2022 or 2023 2500/3500 pickup?
A: Yes it will just pick the proper cluster!

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. Please Note: Not all engines and trim combinations support all of the features above; we do enable them all though. If one is not supported simply disable that menu from appearing. For example some HD trucks show -40 for Oil Temp as its not broadcast on the bus to read.

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 report from a dealership using GDS2 software showing both your total AND idle hours; we will not program them without the report. 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 factory (or 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 boot 7″ and 8″ 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 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!!!

    GREAT JOB WAMS!!!

    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!

    When I originally was looking at the Silverado I wanted the digital instrument cluster but was told it was only available on the top model. That was disappointing as I was interested in the LT Trail Boss trim. Looking at videos online I saw WAMS had an option to get that digital cluster into my Silverado Trail Boss. The ordering process was clear and easy. So far so good. Very happy with the upgraded High Country Cluster. Would recommend it to anybody interested in upgrading their Silverado.

    This is my second cluster I have ordered from WAMS. The first one that I ordered for my Sierra and I liked that one so much I ordered another one for my Silverado. They are hands down the best in the business. There was a hiccup with the Sierra cluster as when the door was opened and closed it displayed “AT4” instead of “GMC” and I reached out to WAMS and got a prompt response. They explained that the clusters automatically default to “AT4” when you have the “X31” package. I shipped it back and they fixed it and it was all seem less. The second one for my Silverado is great and makes a huge difference in the feel of the truck. If you have the money and are on the fence, just do it! You won’t regret it. Overall GREAT experience.

    Side note. I didn’t pay for faster shipping on the second cluster and got it in the exact same amount of time as the first one, which I paid for faster shipping. Not a big deal though just something I thought I’d mention.

  7. chris meyer (verified owner)

    This is truly an outstanding company! The cluster worked as promised, The extra menu items and now having steering wheel controls is priceless. Very simple project. Delivery time was much faster than expected with the shortages everywhere. The communication was outstanding as well. Keep up the great work!

    2019 Chevy Silverado Custom, IOR Radio, Retrofit Leather Wrapped Steering Wheel.

    One of the first upgrades on my truck was replacing the ugly plastic steering wheel. Quickly found out that the controls on didn’t work because I have the IOR radio. I watched several videos on YouTube of people upgrading their cluster (speedometer) for a digital with bigger digits and all digital gauges. Finally, I came across a YouTube video replacing the cluster with IOR radio. August 30, 2021, I purchased the 2019-2021 (T1) High Country Cluster upgrade kit with expanded menu set for $773.67 Provided my VIN and tripled checked my order. Even check with customer service to get more info before pulling trigger. WAMS were very fast on programing and shipping the new cluster. Received my order in about a week.

    If you have the IOR radio, you will need to purchase the steering wheel LIN BUS harness from HarnessDR.com. After reviewing two YouTube instalation videos, I installed my cluster and LIN BUS data cable in an hour. The installation was very easy; but, the LIN BUS was a little challenging to install. This was a plug and play. My display looks amazing, I love the large icons on my display and controlling the menus with my steering wheel. Also, the volume controls now work on my upgraded steering wheel. I had a great customer experience with WAMS and their customer service is outstanding . I would definitely recommend WAMS for your 2019-2022 GMC/CHEVY truck upgrades. I would definitely do business with them again.

    GREAT JOB WAMS!!!
    Sincerely Billy!

    Love the gauge cluster. It really makes the interior feel upgraded. I highly suggest the expanded gauge options if you like to keep an eye on as many things as possible. It worked perfect right out of the box and the install was easy.

  10. Brandon Diamond (verified owner)

    These were out of stock when ordered, but once they came in WAMS got the cluster to me in about 2 days. Install was super easy (followed YouTube tutorial) and the difference is night and day. Enjoyed the end result so much I’m likely going to send in my module for the navigation option.

  11. Todd Nichols (verified owner)

    The best upgrade I’ve done to my truck!
    Absolutely love it!
    I have a 2020 Silverado custom so had to upgrade the steering wheel and ordered the harness from HarnessDr.com.
    Install was easy and flawless!

  12. Vincent Boyce (verified owner)

    Upgraded my 2021 Silverado custom to the High country cluster with the additional menus swapped out the steering wheel to a leather wrapped LTZ wheel with all controls and purchased the LIN bus harness from harness doctor it’s like driving a different truck excellent programming has more options than the OEM would have took about an 1 1/2 hours to do best upgrade yet

  13. John Morales (verified owner)

    Upgraded my 21 Trailboss cluster to this High Country cluster and it transformed the interior of the truck. I love the added features and the install was nothing but easy. Don’t hesitate if you are thinking about buying this cluster, just do it. You won’t regret it! Customer service was absolutely fantastic, look foward to working with them again!

  14. Robert Hiatt (verified owner)

    I did a bunch of research on these and this is by far the best product out there. This was truly plug n play. I was skeptical at first as to if it would really work but after speaking with there Customer service they reassured me and they were right. If you are on the fence I would recommend pulling the trigger and upgrading your dash. Thank you again for this great product and great customer service!

  15. Jason Greene (verified owner)

    Upgraded my 2020 RST to this cluster and it was worth every penny! Customer service is excellent!

  16. EUGENE MORGAN (verified owner)

    I upgraded my 21 SLE and it wow what a difference. It was easy to install and the extra features are well worth it. I will definitely be ordering the navigation upgrade from them.

  17. Saul jr Diaz (verified owner)

    Very satisfied, easy plug and play. A must upgrade on your Silverado cluster. In my opinion, definitely worth the money. Fast shipping was a plus.

  18. Erick Ponkala (verified owner)

    Product looks great, installed perfectly in conjunction with the Harness Dr. was plug and play. Highly recommended!! Looks 1000% better than the stock WT cluster. Plus I added a new leather wrapped steering wheel with all the buttons on it and they work awesome and look great at night!

  19. Michael Fredericks (verified owner)

    So happy that I went with this. Changes the entire feel of the truck. Ordering was easy and turnaround was fast. Thankful for WAMS giving the ability to have this upgrade.

  20. Jamie Martinez (verified owner)

    This cluster was worth every penny! Completely changes the look and feel of the interior. Install was seamless and couldn’t be happier!

  21. andeberry (verified owner)

    I received my High Country instrument cluster in a little less than two weeks I watched serval videos on how to install it Very very easy Took maybe 30 to 45 minutes because I was being extra careful The cluster upgrade from the LT to the High is worth every penny I had a few questions after installation and customer service was awesome If your on the fence, do it.

  22. Steven Banom III (verified owner)

    What a pleasure to deal with. Had a few questions beforehand, and was pleasantly surprised to get almost immediate replies and a pleasant conversation back and forth. Of course, the cluster (Denali) worked perfectly with the new steering wheel and wiring kit from HarnessDr (base model problems…). Would highly recommend. Excellent products, custom programming, and customer service!

  23. Samantha Reed (verified owner)

    Definitely worth the money! I have a custom trim level so the difference between this cluster and my old one is huge!! I had to replace my steering wheel to one that had buttons so I can flip through the menu and I am absolutely loving the new setup. It is so awesome that my husband decided he needed one too for his RST so we have purchased both the high country and Denali cluster and are two very happy customers.

  24. WES WILLIAMS (verified owner)

    5 stars 6 if I could. Not only a great product excellent experience all the way around. Dr. Harness also did an excellent job of helping me when I lost their directions.

  25. Terry Richard (verified owner)

    I am extremely pleased with the overall experience of my upgraded high country instrument cluster. The Harness single pin wire and upgraded steering wheel with radio controls work flawlessly… thanks to WAMS my IOR radio isn’t limitless any longer … Thanks Guys for all you do … continue to keep excellence & customer support at high standards!!!

    S. Alfonso Townsend – June 16, 2022
    I am very thankful for the support that WAMS Customer Service Department provided me that allowed me to correct my error after I ordered the wrong Cluster Upgrade Kit. After several communications from them I was able to correct my error and order the right kit. I eventually ordered the Denali/High Country Cluster Kit for my 2022 Silverado 1500 LTD LT 5.3L. WAMS even work with me in getting a full refund for my error. I am extremely satisfied with my decision to upgrade to the Denali/High Country Cluster Kit.
    Again, I am very appreciative of the WAMS customer support staff for their outstanding assistances.
    Bottom Line: KUDOS!!!
    Check with WAMS Customer Service Department if you are not sure you are ordering right upgrade kit. They will provide you with all the information you need to make the right choice.

  27. Alex Bosley (verified owner)

    Amazing! Got my high country cluster for my LT within 1 week of ordering & there was even a holiday thrown in that mix! Plugged right in and works amazing! Double what I had dreamed of! One sped closer to completing my high country conversion.

  28. Edward Nagel (verified owner)

    Just bought a brand new GMC Sierra 2500 SLT, but I knew the cluster just wouldn’t do. I was very pleased to find this site/product. I ordered the cluster just as soon as the truck arrived at the dealership and just a week or so later the new cluster arrived and I installed it the very same day. It took about 15 minutes and I actually did it without breaking anything. So if I can do it… anybody can. I love the look of the upgraded cluster and WAMS customer service even tolerated my stupid questions to boot.

  29. Jordan Grevious (verified owner)

    Service was great and I got my cluster in less then a week. Then gm Denali model worked just like they said it would in my Chevy. Would buy fro again

  30. Earl Ashley (verified owner)

    Purchased for my 2020 Silverado LT; product explanation is on point, easy install and looks amazing! Highly recommend!

  31. Albert Sanchez (verified owner)

    By far easiest and best looking upgrade you can add to your Custom Silverado. The WAMs team is awesome ordering is simple just verify your info before purchase. This cluster install makes you feel like you are driving a new truck again. WAMS thanks for your quick and easy service.

  32. Wladimir Foo (verified owner)

    Thank you, WAMS! This upgrade couldn’t have gone easier; from placing the order, to a quick turn-around time and installation. For a few months now I was undecided but glad I pulled the trigger finally. I love my new cluster and the data it provides.
