you couldn't get a whole new dash...the instrument cluster has an entirely different microprocessor set-up from you have in your truck

It would probably cheaper to dye most of the plastic to black than try and buy all the parts.

The 04 cluster is controlled by its own computer and has digital aspects on it, that the 03 and back aren't programmed to control.

And his replacement dash was from a compatible year, not a 2004+. The 04's not only have a different cluster, they have a completely revamped, rewired and rerouted harness throughout the whole truck. And a new Smart Junction Box to replace the GEM, CSM and fuse panel. Even if you had a donor vehicle and all of the documentation, swapping in an 04+ dash into a 03-back would be a nightmare.
