    im in denver and can do your cluster for you. you buy the LEDs (BUY THE CLUSTER, STEERING WHEEL AND CLOCK LEDS HERE!!) and/or (RADIO LEDS HERE!!), drive to my place, and i'll do your cluster for $60, radio for $120, steering wheel controls for $30 and 2010+ clocks for $20. i have done 100+ other clusters (including my own back in '07), a few radios, steering wheels and 2010+ clocks, so i have experience, email me your screen name to tacomaleds (at) gmail.com if your interested...

    if you are not located in denver, i can still do your swap. ship me whatever you want swapped, the required leds and a prepaid return label and i will have your stuff back on its way to you the day after i receive it. (in most all cases)


    for ease of reference and ordering, here is the required amount of LEDs for each aspect of the cluster:
    - Background = 11
    - Needles = 7
    - Turn Signals = 2 per side
    - Additional indicators (ie CEL, Batt, Cruise etc..) = 1 per light

    Radio:
    05-08 (JBL or Non-JBL) - 55 LEDs
    09+ (JBL or Non-JBL) - 67 LEDs

    Steering wheel - 6 total LEDs

    2010+ clock - 3 LEDs

    UPDATE:

    Blacktacoma23's 2011, craziest cluster to date! reminds me of the old school joker

    the two per blinker is not always true.. I did sock monkeys today and his only had one per arrow. his truck is a 07. I would assume 07+ would be one.

    i believe at least the 05s had two (mine did IIRC), so better safe than sorry w/ those numbers. i left them as generic as possible so its foolproof for someone that knows nothing about swapping the LEDs (hopefully!). if anything, its only a $1 worth of extra LEDs! plus you might get a bad one anyways!

    cluster = $50
    radio = $100 (i know that may sound like a lot, but there are over 50 LEDs and the screen ones are a PAIN to do. i have done one though before, so i do have experience)

    so $150 for both. same deal, you buy the LEDs and drive out to me.
