I was wondering if anyone has tried to put upfitter switches in the cubby hole in 1999-2004 trucks? if any one has pictures that would be awesome. I would really like to put them in my truck.
thanks for any info guys

I put them in my 03 and made a filler panel for the rest of the cubby hole. there is a spot in the fuse box that has the same plug as the upfitters, I simply plugged the upfitters in and moved the 2 pins out of the factory connector into the upfitter connector.

What is the oval switch to the left of the upfitter switches? I wondered what went in that slot.

how did you mount the switches into the cubby hole?

I pulled the switches out of the surround, then put it in place, marked it and dremeled where the tabs go and it just clipped in

Could you just install the entire 05+ lower dash assembly to the 99-03 for a cleaner factory look?? Also, how hard would it be to integrate the factory trailer brake controller to our trucks?? Thanks for any help

The 05-07 lower center panel fits with a bit of trimming of the plastic support bars of the dash frame. It would be next to impossible to install a TowCommand on an older truck, since it is patially integrated to the 05+ instrument cluster, requires a new master cylinder, and the PCM requires a re-flash.

What do you mean by moving the two pins from the factory connector to the upfitter connector?

Has anyone done this in a 2002? Bought the relay box and wiring harness and the plug in in the back of the fuse panel is already filled, where it looked empty on the 03
