How to legally replace and instrument cluster

Hello,

I am interested in swapping out my instrument cluster since I have an SE and am sick of the idiot lights. I am wondering if anyone who has done this knows what I would have to do to ensure that the swap is lawful (I know there is somewhat of a grey area when messing with ODOs)

Thanks in advance!

Depending on your state it may be legal to change a new odometer as long as you don't change it to below the actual mileage.

If not you should be able to take it to a shop that can legally change it for you and put a sticker in your Jeep stating that the swap has been done legally, mileage, ect. Usually goes in the doorjamb from what I've seen.

Google, people, GOOGLE!
From http://dmv.ny.gov/brochure/let-buyer-be-aware :
For motor vehicles that are 10 model years old or newer, the seller must complete the odometer disclosure statement on the back of the title certificate. For vehicles older than 10 model years, odometer disclosure is not required.

When I went in to retitle my 95 jeep they told me that cars that are over 15 years old are exempt on reporting mileage. So now my title reads Exempt instead of 270,000 miles. That was in Idaho, but I am sure your state will have rules, so call the ever helpful DMV and see what they say.
