Guess it's busy work time tomorrow...

It came today and DAMN.. looks brand new! LOL

I'm going to install it first to see how it looks and (pray to God) hope that it works ok - remember my truck is 4x4. I'd be extremely happy if the computer resets the odometer, if not, gonna have to look for my emergency $ and get it reprogrammed.

I'll take some iPhone 4 pict's once I put it in and try it out and post them.

If all's ok I'm going to get my nephew to see if he can help and come up with something to cover the SRT10 and put something else there, he runs a graphic's and webdesign shop: http://www.dolphingraphics.com/

It probably came with a SKIM module on the back of it, this will have to be removed and replaced with your own; as the SKIM module won't recognize your keys, since it's coded to the VIN and keys of the truck it came out of.

You should at least be able to determine if it works after changing the SKIM module with your own.

The SKIM module also hides the 11th bulb for the dash module, should you be inclined to change to colored LED lights.

I'm probably going to wait a day or two for this 100 degree heat to subside before I sit outside to test my own new module.

Computer does not contain the mileage, that would be too simple. Mileage is contained in the computer in the speedometer cluster, but not in the SKIM module on the back of the cluster. With current laws about speedometer replacement, the stealership will have to reprogram it.

New module works fine, and the stealership says that the install and reprogram should be about $100.

Will post picks after install.

Why me?

Why did they have to close my local dodge dealer that I had been going to for years and always had outstanding service?????????

I'm biting my tongue right now to keep from going ballistic because of a XXX CENSORED XXX Dodge Dealer in Pleasanton California that XXX CENSORED XXXXXX CENSORED XXXXXX CENSORED XXXXXX CENSORED XXXXXX CENSORED XXX lied to me on the phone, make me bring my truck all the way down there and then have XXX CENSORED XXXXXX CENSORED XXXXXX CENSORED XXXXXX CENSORED XXX nerve to tell me to my face in a complete lie that they can't do it, that they are shipped preprogramed from Dodge!!!!!

I called another and they said yea they can do it but it has to be installed first....


STONERIDGE DODGE YOU XXX CENSORED XXXXXX CENSORED XXX SUCK!!!!!!!!

How do I really feel?

You really wanna know?

REALLY????????????????????

Does this answer your question???

OUT WITH THE OLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!



AND IN WITH THE NEW!



NO CHARGE from the dealership because he didn't flash anything!

Course I ended up doing most of the work - like 99%...

The whole install was really easy except the part where you need itty bitty skinny as all hell hands to get behind the cluster to unplug them, mine DON'T FIT! LOL

You don't really need that special tool others have posted to use to help take your dash apart as long as you are super careful where the clips are located when you pull them free, the rest is basically a cross tip screw driver and one small socket - I think it was a 4 or 5 mm?

One thing I noticed too, you'd be surprised on how much dust and dead bugs end up BEHIND your covers and cluster! LOL

I had to exchange the simm card from my cluster to the SRT10 one, after that the stupid alarm horn/flashing lights stopped and that little red light that flashes for that special key that SRT10's have stopped blinking too.

The guages all work perfectly and I don't really care that it says SRT10 on it now..

Oh.. one minor thing?

You need to make sure that you get used to the change in the speedometer needle position and how fast you are going..

Ummm.. I kinda forgot and found myself doing near 100 cause I was used to the other one..

There are only 2 downsides on this install, the cluster does not show my proper milage but I did record the actual milage when I pulled the other one out and wrote it down to keep with the truck, other thing is that the 4x4 light does not come on, but not worried about that...

All I can say is..

SWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
