Re: OBS dash swap

actually its the other way around. I am looking at 00-03 trucks, but I am not wild about the dash. I prefer the obs dash greatly, but wondered if anyone had done such a swap in the past.

Re: OBS dash swap

I am sure with enough time and money it could be done. However you would run into issues with airbag compatibility. The newer dashes are so chunky so they can fit the passenger airbag.

Re: OBS dash swap

I heard someone over on FTE Do a OBS to a SD swap. THe SD was a tad deeper\wider and had to be cut to fit but he made it work.
