Default got a stpuid idea but seems cool.

so i have a 2011 slt trim with higher trim (not sure if its an option though) talking about the gauges.
but thats besides the point, another forum i am on, a guy has a 14 ram tradesman, he swapped in a higher trim dash.. got me to thinking, could i do it.. from what i read mine has 2 connectors, his has one.. plus how does it talk to the truck (stupid question) but can the ecm see what all the new dash can show... i do love the gauges on the new rams hopefully it would work with mine..

mine is great but just that i love the newer ones. the stuff it shows is nice... i been looking at them and watching you tube...

only problem is besides the connectors. is the buttons on the wheel and most of all mine doesnt show the stuff (like that does)... trailer brake, oil life, lights(to show its on) engine hrs (driving hrs) only thing it doesnt show is fuel burnt.

what do yall think would this be worth it...

should fit in the org location though. if i had the time and money laying around i would gladly try this.

Yeah, it would work. But the dealer would have to flash the ECM to let it know what cluster you have so it could send the proper info to the right places.
