but did any of the fx4 trucks have the dual climate control like the lariat?
All the ones I have seen have the three dials and the cutout looks like three cirles in a line not the square cutout for the dual climate control.

The cutout for the dual zone isn't square, the ends are rounded.

Whatever!
I think the point I was trying to make it that the knog style panel is not interchangeable with the dual zone panel, whatever the shape.

The original poster was looking for an knob style pannel for his lariat, which I dont think they made one in carbon fiber, unless the harley truck had it.

After more research you CAN'T get the dual zone climate with an FX4. I now want to know what kind of bastardized truck the dealer was attempting to sell me that was the manager's demo!

I wonder if it is as simple as removing the three knob and plugging in the dual zone? maybe they stole it from another truck? But most of those automatic climate controls have temperature sensors elsewhere in the dash to give the thermostat feedback.

I thought about putting the F150 harley auto climate into my lightning, and it was WAY more complicated than just swapping the clusters. I'm assuming its the same for our trucks.
