EX dash trim vs. F250 dash trim?

I noticed while searching that Rich/Unbroken said he used an Excursion dash in his truck. Is there a visual difference in this dash versus the stock F250 dash? I'm going to order another dash trim to paint and "play" with and if there was a visual difference, I was thinking of maybe trying it.

Anyone know?

I think the Ex. dash sticks out a little bit.

The Excursion bezel has a raised part over the cluster....kinda like the curved eyebrow on 97-03 F150's and the right side of it is shaped different. The light switch is different too...but the F250 switch will work in it.
You'll have to lok at an Ex to really see what I'm talking about...it's pretty subtle....it's a direct swap though...no mods needed.

Thanks Rich.... like you said it is pretty subtle but I can see some differences. I think I'm going to paint both pillars black as well as the dash trim.

Got one ordered. Rich, did you have to paint the air vents? Also, how does the F250 square light switch deal fit when the one in your truck is oval shaped?

I disassembled the vents and painted the outer part to match....they come apart easy.
The ****ch still locks in place...you can just see the oval part around the square F250 switch a bit. I think the Ex switch was 80 bucks or so from Ford.
