There is only one way. You have to replace the entire dash, not just the gauge cluster. Take out the windshield and use a die grinder on both trucks. Then tack the one you want back in place. Unless you are a god with bondo or lead, trust me, it's the only way.
Been there, done that, ripped up a good t-shirt
