Swaping out the dash

I have a question for you guys.....I want to swap the dash out of my 2003 superduty diesel (7.3L) into the 2000 superduty diesel (7.3L) I just bought. Has anyone done this? Is it just a bolt in, or do I have to swap the harness too? How big of a job is it? Thanks in advance......

Re: Swaping out the dash

What about the gauge cluster? I want to use the one out of the 2003. Can I use the wiring harness out of the 2000?

Re: Swaping out the dash

i dont think the gauge clusters will swap since they are different.

Re: Swaping out the dash

it may work. i just dont know. i do know that you CANNOT switch from a 7.3 cluster to a 6.0 one. A few guys on here have done a 05+ dash swap and they still have their orginal cluster in there.

Re: Swaping out the dash

I'm not going to a 6.0L cluster......My 2003 that I rolled was a 7.3L, not a 6.0L. I'm stripping all the interior out of the 2003 to put in the 2000, because the 2003 was a black sport model.

Re: Swaping out the dash

i know that but its the same principle.

the early 7.3s used roller odometers where as the later used digital and the gauge layout is much different.

Re: Swaping out the dash

If you took the wiring harness out and swapped them you would be ok.

The 2000 has a fuse panel under the dash and under the hood. Your 2003 has both fuse panels in the dash.

You'll need to swap the PCM too.
