Overhead console retrofit

Installed an f150 ohc in my truck today. Bought a factory unit off ebay and made the bracket work to fit the truck. I think it came out pretty good, just waiting on the temp sensor that will be here tomorrow. Did black to match my black dash and blak floor matts. Heres a few pics




Let me know what you guys think!

I just got my 08 350 XL package and i really miss my temp reading. so this new over head console would give me the temp and compass reading?

Bought an overhead console from an f150. Made a custom bracket out of the f150 bracket that came with it but unfortunately did not take any pics. Was very simple and has been working great.

So the harness is there or what? Did you have to run the wires?

There are no wires there. This is a complete retrofit. Pull power from purple accesory wite under the steering column, run a ground wire and two wires out to the temp sensor and you are good
