From what I've read the panels will fit but the truck wiring will not just plug into the new switches on the panels. I have seen some swaps done though and it looks really good.

Yeah I heard the same, as well as some massaging of the dash to make the front doors close.

I bought some panels and test fit them... There are a few problems.

Aside from some fit issues, the biggest issue is the texture. The new panels are completely different texture - The look horrible with the old texture of the dash and 99-07 trim.

Also, the colors are totally off - To make them the correct color, they'll need to be dyed.

Lastly, the wiring stuff - There are write ups on how to make the switches work, but that's more cost...

Just my $.02. I bought panels, test fit them and then decided against the swap because it wasn't going to look right.
