Interior swap

Has anyone tried swapping out the interior of their Jeep dash, console etc? I have a 2008 jku and want the look of the newer style. Any ideas, pictures or insight is greatly appreciated and needed. TIA

With all of the computers on board, I think you would need a whole lot more then what you see.

Pretty sure the cluster itself is a computer that is tied in with the ECU and TIPM. Not sure how changing that out would affect other systems. It might work or nothing would work.

I don't even know what direction to point you in to find the answers.

The console I'd bet would swap without issue. I'd also bet the plastic face of the dash would too. Anything with a wire going to it........that's where the issues will probably raise their ugly heads.
