05 dash in an 01

Ok well I bought an 05 amarillo edition dash to go in my 01 and there were a few questions from other members as to what it would take to get it to fit. It looks like more than a little modding to me so I'm going to see if I can locate the whole dash out of and 05.

Here are the pics of the test fit....

There was about a 1" difference in the vent hole to get it to line up

Several tabs did not line up

The radio housing is for a true double din and the thermostat controls would need to be mover over an inch or so along with the radio

all of these tabs lined up on this side but you can see my light switch will not work either

here is an overall pic

Jason, You need to get with VPO. They could help you out. They did it to Clays truck ( the red and black one from the shows) They are also putting 08 door panels in it.

Thats one good thing about the King Ranch, the seats might look like they are worn out and beat to death but they are strong as hell

Yea, I talked to clay about it the other day. He said it was a fairly simple swap for the whole dash. I was hoping I could just pop in the front piece and modify the radio housing but it was a lot more involved than that so now I'm back to square one. I'm going to give them a call because clay was talking about doing an 08 dash also. I may just buy his 05.
