New dash ?

Hey guys, I love the OBS body style but I'm really loving the 08 + interiors. I was wondering if anyone has every tried to do this. I'm thinking this could be a really nice project if I could get some info on it.

If you look at them the dash on the newer trucks is alot deeper than the obs truck, in short it won't work without cutting it way down to fit the depth, you will have to modify it to bolt in too, good luck and keep us posted if you can get it done

The 08 dash is also wider than the obs dash. Last time I checked it was almost 10" difference. I was gonna swap an 07 dash into my obs but it would have required
Alot of hacking, forming, glueing etc. Just wouldn't look the same anymore.

I still say try it tho, if it works I may swap mine lol. But you could just take portions out of the passenger side as well as non key parts from the center as in around the head unit and eatc/hvac
