      I was looking at the speedometer cluster in the Platinum trim and I really liked how it looks. I think its a next generation type. Does anyone know the part number for it? I am planning to install it in my Sport and I am guessing that the wiring will be the same?. I have an old buddy who works at the shop installing similar things like dash cams and built in Valentine detectors wright into the back view mirror, he said yeah, sure, bring me the part and I will install it to you for a discount, make sure it is the same size. I said Ok.

      I see a used one for explorer 16 for only 120 bucks or best offer, the other ones are years 14-15 years explorer going to around 90 bucks. http://www.ebay.com/itm/v6103-2011-...ash=item3ac5622696:g:JqYAAOSwmtJXWe4a&vxp=mtr
      If I can grab a brand new Platinum for around $150-$300, that would be so awesome. Platinum one just looks so much more modern.

      I agree with you, however, some programming will be required.

      Keep in mind that even if it was possible to swap them, you would be changing the odometer as well therefore it would not be an accurate indication of the actual mileage on the vehicle which may cause warranty issues should you have any. Not sure if it carries any legal implications.:dunno:

      Any one try an upgraded cluster from the platinum in a non platinum vehicle, the single round cluster in my sport reminds me of a Minion looking back at me :)

      Yeah. Really annoyed actually that the sport doesn’t have the platinum cluster with the dedicated tach. Just seems kind of....off. You could probably reset the odometer with some programming to reflect actual mileage but could be a pain in the butt.

      It certainly is possible. A new one has a list cost over $1000 plus there is a core charge added on top of that. Used ones are very hard to come by. Mileage will need to be matched along with proper programming for your vehicle options. There are those of us that have dome similar swaps for the Fusion and Edge. I have everything to do one up for the Explorer if you are game. You should contact me via PM and we will move it to email. I have one that I can setup. It was formerly a Lincoln cluster but I have the correct lens for the Explorer.
