Title: Curiosity
Post by: TeguTerra on May 16, 2014, 05:43:06 PM
my brain is always going about stuff I could do to the x, found out frontier step rails match up to the X with the relocation of 1 of the brackets but now I a curious will the center stereo section of the dash on a newer 2nd Gen replace and match up with the 2007 stereo section.  The entire center area with the radio, climate controls and the 2 vents.  What you think ?  :)

Its completely different. I installed a double din in my '07. Tried to do it in my now '11. I had to buy a completely different install kit.
That being said....stock....'05-'08 radio mounts to dash. '09-'14 radio mounts to bezel/entire face plate assembly. Connectors are all different for radio and a/c controlls.

The front grill assembly is interchangeable.

Well dang,  I like the look of the newer center. Oh well.

Ya, there is a thread about this somewhere, someone tried to custom install the newer one in the old truck with a lot of fiberglass.  The results weren't great.

Yeah, I don't like doing fiberglass work so would maybe try making some modified brackets at work for mounting and then either some thin brushed stainless or some aluminum on the side to form to the old dash.  Just trying to decide if it's something I'm wanting to try out or not.
