    My truck was a 14 Express with the 5.0 and standard 3.5 cluster just like yours. This is what it looks like now....trust me you will like the new look.

    Thanks....it's easy to do. If you decide to do it just read the 4th gen DIY threads. If you have any questions there are tons of us who have done it and will help you with anything you are confused on. When you get your seats let me know and I will list all of the wires I have figured out.

    I'm not sure if I understand your question but if you are referring to the shifter knob then yes it came that way. My truck is a 1500 and has the 8 speed transmission. All of the 8 speeds have the Rotary Shifter Knob.

    Not jacking the thread but have question. I already have heated seats, so how hard will it be to add the cooling feature once i get the seats?

    I am not sure I have heard of anyone who has try ed to add ventelated seats to a truck that only had heated seats. I am pretty sure the wiring is different for the trucks that have the heated and ventelated seats because they have a lot more features so you would most likely have to find the correct harnesses witch is hard to do because in most cases on these trucks the harnesses are sold as a complete unit you have to buy a lot more wiring than you actually needed. You would need to change your control buttons under the radio most likely as well plus see if you can have the sales code added to your truck in order for it all to work. The sales code is most likely not available in your build sheet in that case you would have to go through W.I.C. to get the code added which is extremely difficult to do in most cases. Honestly I think your first step would be to see if the sales code is even available for your truck and take it from there. As long as you could get the sales code added you could probably do it it would just be a lot of work and a lot of looking for parts and probably get pretty expensive
