Question for installing overhead console???

I've got a BASE model 2004 regular cab and I'm wanting to get the overhead console so my truck doesn't look so damn base model-ish inside.

My question is what all do I need? Is the wiring already there to do it, or am I gonna have to get someone to wire it all in for me?

(I am NO electrician or close to it)

How hard is this to do for someone with amature knowledge about things like this?

good question!
You'll need to make sure the Temp sensor (mounted behind grill on driver's side of vertical Rad support) is in place to have temp readings. The instant economy, distance till empty, and additional trip distance options are more than likely going to need to be plugged into the CAN bus line (ecm data) to work. I "think" the direction indicator is built into the overhead console, may want to check on that too.

Remove your A and B pillars to gain access to the headliner and look for wires. They "should" be going up either the drivers, or passenger's side A pillars.

So, they pretty much wire all the trucks the same, even though one truck may not have everything in it that's in someone elses??

Do you (or anyone else) have pics of what all these look like so I know what I'm looking for/at?
