2011 Dash and Interior Swap
I know I've been askin a lot of questions but like I've mentioned a time or two I just sold my 01 PSD and bought a 02 crew cab.
I like the idea of having a truck that is truly mine and no one to have anything like it. I know it's pretty impractical but that's how I am. I like originality and experimenting. I also love my 7.3s. I grew up around them and will always own one.
But returning to the topic. With my love for 7.3s being stated the only thing that I actually dislike about them, is the interior. I see all the time how people swapped out for 05-07 dash but even those were only slight changes.
I first thought about the 08 interior because I love the look. I think it brings in character with molding, curves, and lines. But then I read up and studied a little more and I see the 2011 is pretty muc te same but the console connects at the floor to the dash. And I like this because I would love for my little loved one (2 daughters) to also enjoy some heat/a/c.
I know the biggest problems will be the instrument panel, AC climate control, firewall and the reshaping/ engineering the ducts for the center console as well.
All in all I would love to have a lariat trim level interior with everything operationable. I know this also will include censors and what not but f anyone has any info on this please let me know.
I know there's some here and tree out there on google searches but it's all scattered. I really want to use this thread to collect my information and be able to start my conversion.
Thanks for reading and I can't wait to hear what everyone knows about this. I'll be reading over the schematics lol.
