Default upper console unit swap

has anyone ever swapped the unit on top of the cab from a 98 (with no digital display that shows direction or mpg) for a newer one that does have those features? thanks

I havent, but id think there would be alot of wiring involved.....but it would be a nice upgrade!

Look at some of the stero specialists in your area, someone might offer an install kit

You would be missing some sensors but if you do the research you can find the right ones.

The other thing that kind of makes this difficult is processing the sensor signals through your generation PCM. Each generation truck seems to get an upgraded sensor package and program point for each.
