05-07 dash bezel on 99-04? Will it work?

Does anyone know definitively if the 05-07 dash will fit/work on a pre-05 truck?

I'm 99% sure it will not work. What are you trying to do?

The radio surround (in the actual dash) is different as well as the A/C ducts. It is not impossible but it won't be an easy swap.

What I'm tryin' to do is use an 06 dash bezel (surround) in place of my 04 style. Just a thought.

If things don't line up well then ta heck with it. Plus I like things easy.

I understand that, but why? Are you trying to install a double din stereo or something? If so you can fit one in your truck with just some minor trimming that won't even be able to be seen if you ever put the stock radio back in. I can give you more instructions on that if it is what you are trying to do.

Ken,

Once you remove the bezel you will see that the actual dash is different. The opening for the radio is quite a bit larger on the '05+. Also the A/C ducts on the 99-04 are horizontal and vertical on the 05+, so they will not line up.

I like the look of the updated dash. I have this "need" to make my Excursion into the Excursion Ford would still be making had they not killed it.

Looked like both vent designs were horizontal. I can always get a new radio. So it's settled? The clips will NOT line up?

Not the vents, it is the actual ducts (behind the bezel) which are different. I actually removed the dash bezel off of my '05 SD and test fit it on my '05 Excursion and it would not fit without considerable modification.

Yeah the entire structure behind the dash is different on the 05 up trucks (at least the top portion, the lower portion is the same). You would pretty much have to pull the entire dash out and swap in the new one.

What if one was to buy the entire dashbord and all the hardware from the 05-07s from a junkyard truck, would it work then?

Also: yes the clips line right up. No the vents don't line right up. I did this conversion on my old 02 a week before a drunk driver murdered it.
