Welcome to Fordmods.

On the upper hand yes, you can use a Fairmont cluster in a XR, you are required to add the dimming resistor.

Please read:
documents.php?d=14 for all relevant information.

You'll notice below the Fordmods banner, in the grayed out section a resources tab, a wealth of information there.

Be also careful with the wiring - preferably use your EF dash wiring harness - EL dash looms may have different connectors to the EF body harness.

To clarify, are we talking about the instrument cluster?

As snap has given information about the entire dash as your question asks.
