IF you need help with it message me on here and i can walk you through it, and i can help you reset the guages (ive only had to reset mine like 8 times!!!)
Before you plan on getting the milage off your old cluster, contact your Ford dealer. When I did this, none of the stealers would re-flash my milage unless I purchased the cluster through them. So I bought a junker a little over my milage, waited impatiently until they were pretty close, then swapped them out. The swap was just as easy as described.

Of course, this was years ago, so it may be different now.
