    You will have to buy a different radio. The 8.4 RA4 and RA3 are for 2013 and up.

    I might have a bead on one, but spoke to the guy...and he was adamant that it won't work. I have a 2014 SXT, and this cluster is coming from a 2013 Sport. He listed this PN as 56046541AF. I have seen a part number very similar in this thread except the last number was a 4 not a 1. I am assuming this is just different models. I am sure this will work, but before I drop the cash, I want to get one last confirmation. LOL. Thanks guys! And woohoo, first post on RF complete. No longer a virgin. HAHAHA.

    I have installed 2013 and 2014 clusters in my 2014 and they both work.

    The radio and cluster were changed for the 2013 model year. They are not plug and play. There isn't a cluster like these for your model year and you can't use the 8.4 radios either. You need to look at the radios for the 2009 to 2012 year trucks. I know I've answered this on other threads for you before. Are you reading the replies?
