As seen just find a cluster from a junkyard car. If you can't find one or have one shipped to you let me know, I know of plenty in my local junkyard and I would not mind pulling one and shipping it to you.

There is an F-150 Forum where someone did swap cruise in, I figure it would be a similar procedure, but I remember it was a huge pain in the ass. After that I remember seeing post about an aftermarket cruise control, maybe try to find one of those? I just can't see trusting the damned thing.

I wouldnt trust an aftermarket cruise control system either. Most likely full of bugs.

I reside in detroit, and there are plenty of Focus' in my local junkyards, so it shouldnt be an issue. Just need to find an 06-07. Thank you very much for the offer. If I cant find one, youll be the first to know.

Tach cluster will work from 05-07, as stated. The duratec cars have a different plug than the zetec and spi cars. Id be willing to bet a cluster from a 03-04 duratec car would work too. I forget the pin number difference but the easiest way to tell is the duratec cars dont have a stop pin at the top of the tach (right after 7k).
Ill be sure to get the proper one. Thanks

If I'm changing out the cluster, I'd like to change the cluster to a white color. Any ideas where I can get the insert for it?

Speedhut used to offer them (cant remember if that was for our year though.)
Saleen also had a white face one you can try to search for

Ideally you could even use an ebay over lay.

The ebay overlays are only $23.99 and you don't have to worry about removing/damaging the needles. Replace the normal bulbs with leds and boom great alternative to reverse glow gauges.

overlay. That's the word I was looking for. I liked the look the saleen overlay had. I tried looking for them on ebay with limited success. Then again, I didn't know exactly know what to call it

I just want to make a correction to myself. Leds bulbs cannot be simply "swapped" into the backlighting as the 04+ cars got the bulbs soldered and they are already green leds. However the overlays will look awesome either way and are a good value.

Here is a link to that thread see post starting at #218: http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/s...134217&page=22
