Super Duty dash swap

I know you can swap the seats and steering wheel from the newer trucks into the OBS, but can you swap the whole dash from the 99-07 into the OBS?

Sure but your going to have to be really good at customizing stuff to make it look right. It won't be a direct fit and the gauge cluster won't directly work, however it would make a good excuse to upgrade to a SD PCM.

aren't the superdutys a tad wider than the OBS?
at least it seems like it is to me, but i may be wrong,


anyway if you do it, it would be cool and take plenty of pictures!!

the airbags would look out of place to me lol unless you use the entire sd harness and wire them up,

It is also a much deeper dash compared to the obs

Well I can take measurements and cardboard it to see where it hits and how close to the seats it comes. If the 99-03 7.3 computers and everything works with the OBS then no problem switching. I don't mind extra work and maybe even some extra $$. It will be a nice one-of-a-kind truck

Forgot one important thing, the HVAC system. How different is it from the 99+?

The HVAC shouldn't be as hard as getting everything else to look good. Both systems are vacuum operated, I would suspect that the OBS box would work and you just need the SD ducting with a bit of customization to make it work. The big thing is just going to be getting everything to fit and not look like crap.

Good, since I will be using the SDs computers should not be hard making all the buttons work and maybe try to get the overhead computer too?

If using sd computer too, then go hydroboost brakes and electric vacuum pump
