    Yes, you would need the "dash" harness (or at least the fuse box from it) and the switch bank (if it has the same upper switches as yours) from the donor truck.

    I would definitely be interested in seeing the part numbers, pictures and a write up.

    Benny posted a doc with all the different switch banks over in the vendor section. All the switch banks can be used on 1500-5500, no difference except the different options.
