08 conversion

I am in the process of turning my 04 superduty into an 08. I have the 08 recon headlights, 08 RBP grill, and 08 fab fours pre runner bumper coming in the mail soon and i want the interior to be 08 also. First off, is this possible? will most of the wiring be the same? And also, where is the best place to buy a complete dash (without radio) that i can put a double din screen in? I also want the door panels 08 also, so any help would be great to see if all this will work.

Thanks, Brett

i saw a complete conv with pics on here or the dieselstop, cant remember but it was lenghty and cost lots of money, trying parts on and off etc. the interior I dont think he changed, but its not a bolt on my any means at all, theres alot of grinding, cutting, and all.

If you search and read through, the 08 front end is not hard, many have done it. The door panels will go right on, you will need switches with plugs etc to do the wiring. The dash has not been wrote up as of yet, it should be pretty straight forward, some custom brackets , you probably will need all plugs with a few inches of wires to solder everything up. So everything is pretty simple except dash swap, I am planning on doing the dash once I get out of the sand box for a decent period of time. You can buy dashes on ebay, but I woudl recomend going to your local junk yard and removing yoruself so you will have all botls, screws, clips, brackets, and cut any wiring leads you want, you may also want the blower motor box etc, I did see a picture of both dashes removed and the blower box etc from 08 and an 04 looked almost the same.

The interior would be a pain the a/c control holes are not the same gauge cluster doesn't fit right and pretty much nothing is plug and play good luck with all that

I say thats going to be more work then you think. Just off the top of my head you will need to re duct all ac/heater vents and tubing. The gauge cluster isn't going to work, upfitter switches. I'm guessing lots of trimming and grinding to get everything to fit flush. As well at the heater and climate controls then everything has to be wired.

This is very accurate. I decided to be the guinea pig on the complete 08-10 interior swap. It has been a pain. The dash will bolt up but that's really about all. The AC-heater core on the 08-10 is directly in the middle of the firewall whereas the 99-07 is offset to the passenger side. Therefore, the duct doesn't work. The steering columns are different, the HVAC - different, cluster - different, even the TBC module and upfitter switches are different as well.
