Do you think this will work?

So It was pretty slim pickin's when I got my 2011. There were still a good amount around, but I specifically wanted 2011, 250, Gray, 6FT bed, Crew Cab, and under $47ish.
As you can imagine, it didnt leave much to pick from. I found a nice one though for $41, with a good bit of what I wanted. Fx4, running boards, SOTF, and a few other small items. It however did NOT have the upfitter switches, cab lights, fog lights, remote start, or a decent heat/ac unit. I had read up on the ability to add some of those afterwords, so I was not worried. I had the dealer install the remote start, (it was pre wired) I installed the upfitter switches, (they are pre wired) and I just ordered the cab lights, and fog lights, (which are both pre wired)
Dont get me wrong, I know they are not "PRE WIRED" as in plug and play, but they are wired enough to save half the labor or more. I have never seen a vehicle that comes with all these options, pre wired for future use.

It got me thinking. I had taken my dash apart to paint, it, and noticed just how easy the Heat/AC unit was to remove. So my question is. If the front portion of the AC unit comes out so easy, do you think I could get one that has all the options and just swap it out? Like something were I can actually set the temp, and not have a turn nob... etc?

I have seen the standard ones on ebay, (the one I have) for $75, but nothing else...

Just wanted to get some input. Do you think If I just installed the control panel, I would have the full options of a lariat, KR, etc...? Or what else would I need to get?

I think some of this might be programmed into the BCM/GEM modules. or alteast it used to be. In the older trucks you had to re-program the modules for it.

you might get lucky with plug and play but for anything else I believe the can address needs to be programmed if you replace it. Some of the door locks and rear window defoggers on the GMs need to be programmed.

In the past and I'm sure it's not much different now, but you usually needed a donor vehicle if you wanted to put in the EATC system. There are motors and sensors and a lot of wiring that's needed to convert the system to electronic.

I kinda thought If nothing else there would need to be a temp sensor somewhere. I wonder If this is a part dealers may keep in stock. Maybe buy it and try it in the Parkin lot. It only takes 3 minutes to get the dash out...
