I really like the look of the 4 switches in the 4x4 switch spot. I think I'll be going that route soon too. Thanks for inspiring me.

same carling switches, lighted, non lighted, rubberized rockers, gaskets ( i dont use them ) harness plugs, switch "brackets" for lack of a better word. holders maybe?

check them out. SAVE A TON. i used them to wire my race car.
Checked them out, not too much choice for any labeled rockers which is normally a must for me; good pricing though like you said.
I just paid 15$ per rocker for this setup, but that's with a fully LED rocker, and custom engraved actuators.

No prob! I was happy with the final result. Good thing I have the 4 on the floor for the extra dash space. Not a fan of the Electronic 4x4 anyways

Any body have pics of the 650 dash mod completed with a stick? Just got my piece a few days ago and noticed there is a rectangular whole cut on the left side of the plastic where the switch pannel would go. How did you guys with the manuals cover this up or work around it??

Hi Everyone,
I'm a newbie to this site. Just wanted to ad my .02 worth. I am in process of doing this mod and got it VERY cheap!!! Just wanted to post a link to my install page so you could see pics.
I am doing to manuel F650 piece instead of the automatic version as above. I have names and addresses listed with Ford part numbers so you could order this as well.

I don't work for Ford but I had a real hard time finding this so I figured it might help someone else.

here is the link:
F650 Dash Mod on the Cheap!! - BioFuels Technologies Forum

Hope this helps!!!

Veggi X!

Here's my original post:
____________________

I got the dash piece at:

Broadway Truck Centers
(They are a medium duty Ford Truck dealer)
1501 S. 7th St
St Louis, MO
63104

Part #4C4Z-7004302-HA

314-241-2080 - ex. 295
800-325-3861 - ex. 295

www.broadwaytruck.net

Salesman: Tom Hick

They are open most days until 11:30pm I believe.

I can't find my receipt but I paid $38 plus tax if memory serves correctly.

This fits a 2000 F650, Manuel transmission truck, with air brakes.

Mine will be similar to the pic of the one with 7 switches when done(internet pic). According to my calculations (I could be wrong) I believe I can fit 7 rocker type carling switches across the top row, same place as the pic with the toggle switches. The dash piece in my truck pic was just set in there to do a test fit and get a pic for reference. It fits perfectly with out any mods, Ford piece, Ford fit!!!

The three holes in the mod piece (2 round, 1 oval) are how it comes. They are where the air brakes and something else goes on the F650. You can either glass over them or I've measured that you should be able to get a switch over far enough on the top and center 3 autometer gauges across the bottom without having to glass up anything. Of course if you change things you will need to adjust accordingly.

Here is the pictures from the other website. Sorry, didn't realize you had to sign up to see pics!

{edit}...The one on the far right (the finished pic) is one I got off of the internet (not my truck), just put in for a reference of a finished F650 "manuel" dash piece to look at. Mine will be set very similar but I will use Carling swithces I got at Granger.

Thankyou for the pictures!! Looks great, very clean install, looks factory! Where did you get the black piece that the switches are mounted in? or did you make that? I was considering going with the carling contoura v switches from OTRATTW that were mentioned in this thread but those toggles arent bad at all either and you can fit more of them...

also just wondering, whats the black box on the right of the stick with the ford logo on it?
