Yes you can swap out the cluster.
To reset the odometer you need a Tech 2 GM pcm scan tool.
Check with your local gm service center and ask how much before you swap out the gauges.

Harofreak...

Where'* the pics of your cluster in pieces. Does it appear this can be done or do we know for sure the vehicle mileage is in part of the cluster and it needs to be reprogrammed?

That is my concern..with the databus setup ... it might be grumpy and not play nice with another cluster.

This is the description of the odometer. It indicates that it is part of the IPC, and works directly with signals from the PCM, so the concerns of compatibility seem well founded.

Description and Operation

ODOMETER

The IPC contains a season odometer and a trip odometer. Press the TRIP RESET switch in order to reset the trip odometer. The IPC displays the vehicle mileage and trip mileage as determined by the IPC. The IPC calculates the mileage based on the class 2 vehicle speed message from the PCM. The odometer will display 'error' if an internal IPC memory failure is detected.

well i was thinking, there isnt really a reason i would need to swap out the odometer. I will just take the new gauge cluster face replace it with the one i am using now. So hopefully its not hard to swap clusters..

An update to this, the DIC may be in contact with the PCM but the trip odometer is stored in the piggyback module on the back of the mainboard on the cluster primary board.

I tested this when I swapped out the odometer modules.
