    .. I think I'm in way above my depth but willing to give it a go just wondering firstly if its possible, and if their is anything I should steer clear of or just get stuck in I'm aware that my truck doesnt have any of the wiring looms and would need to utilize these aswel , as much as I can remember the bits that im not sure on are the likes of
    air conditioning, and digital heater selector
    Compass rear view, and gps
    Parking sensors,
    Cruise control,
    Hardon kardon,
    Power Folding mirrors,

    My suggestion is to move this thread to the "Discovery" part of the forum and avoid some of us on a Sunday night, things can get a bit silly!

    And I think you meant Harman Kardon!!!!!

    And as for electrical stuff, there are those on here who know all about it but my initial reaction is that you might have to transfer every electrical item from the more complex vehicle into the other one, as looms and ECUs and stuff do not take kindly to having stuff tacked onto them.

    Agree with above, probably almost all electrical stuff are prewired. my car is a very basic one and I have already installed cruise control with no issue. I needed only the switches and just "plug and play". Other example the front fog light, which I do not have but prewired so I could easily install them.
