Just bought an 05, and it has everything on it but an overhead console. Are the trucks that don't one equiped with the wiring for one? I have found several consoles for sale but Idon't want to get one without knowing if I can wire it in.

It doesn't have the overhead storage. The truck is fully loaded with everything but leather, I find it strange it doesn't have the overhead console, I miss the temp reading lol.

Maybe I'm mistaken but I thought that in '05 they moved all the electronics to the cluster. My '05 just has the overhead storage. There are no electrical components on it.

you could be right. It has the message center on the dash but it doesnt display outside temp, compass, trip odo. etc.

The message center should display compass. And exterior temp is on the auto climate control. Also there is three rectanglar buttons to the right of the steering column, those control the message center.
