05-07 dash swap..suggestions..

Ok so ive run out of exterior things to do..as you can tell by my sig..


So i want the interior out of a black super cab..heres the thing..i dont know where to start.. ive only seen black interiors in Amarillos and Harley trucks.. is there an XL or XLT that has a black interior?

anyone have any insite before doing this..ive read and read and it seems very duable..and i want to use the factory trailer brake controller in the dash too. has anyone else done this?

Really could use some insite! and if i can find all the parts i will do a step by step transformation with pics and full write up..

i also want the roof to be black.. is there any super cab black interiors out there??

XLT Sport trucks had black interiors. Not sure on the factory trailer brake controller, I know it is tied into the computer of the newer trucks, so you might have some issues there.

As for the exterior of your truck, you still need to upgrade your badges...

Yeah, I have an '03 XLT-Sport. The dash is grey, but the seats/carpet and stuff is black. On top of that, I have pretty fake carbon fiber...
