add upfitters and tow command in 03?

i tried to find some threads on this but couldn't find any for my application. i have a 03 xlt f250 6.0l and would like to put in the factory upfitter switches and factory trailer brake controller like in a 05 and newer super duty. after looking at a couple newer trucks, it looks like it would be easy to replace my lower middle dash section (pedal controls, cubby hole, cup holders, and garbage bag hook?) with a newer section made for switches and controller.

so my question is, has anyone done this, and would it bolt right in and hook up to factory harnesses or would there be a bunch of manual wiring?

any help or advice, or even pics would be greatly appreciated.

thanks,
travis

Upfitters is just a wiring harness and you're set. Adding the integrated brake controller requires you to replace the whole master cylinder. Good luck.

So will this work on my 03 with a 7.3L or is it strictly a 6.0 thing? I can't see there being much difference in the interior wiring harness for the upfitter switches between the 03 7.3L and the 03 6.0, but I'm really interested in the brake controller.
