For sale: Gen3 Mini overhead console w comp & Homelink

Hey, I have a gray mini overhead console for a Gen 3 Dakota... with the trip computer, lights, Homelink. It all is in good shape and works, and includes the mounting bracket, in case you want to do an upgrade from scratch.

Also includes a wiring pigtail, these are pretty simple to install & wire. This version only requires unswitched B+, GND, Keyswitch, light wires, and one-wire CAN (databus - 2002 & up?) hookups. If you've already got the cheap-o "clip" version, this installs quickly.

I also have the "clip" console, if you just want to replace a broken one of those.

I replaced my "clip" console twice, once with this mini computer console, and now again, with the larger console with a storage compartment.

I'll take any reasonable offer.

The console includes a pigtail with short wire leads. There is plenty there to splice onto so you can extend the wires under the headliner to your A-pillar, then down to the fusebox & ECM, where you can pick up all the necessary signals.

I've done this, so I know the details. If you want it, I'll extend the wires and label them for you, so it'll be a breeze to hook up.

If you already have a console with lights, the light harness will plug right in.

The computer only needs 4 wires:
1) Battery + (fusebox)
2) GND (ring terminal to bolt near fusebox)
3) Data (CAN) tap into wire at ECM behind kick panel)
4) Keyswitch (IGN) (fusebox)

In my '03, the dimming is handled via the data bus, so no dimmer wire was required.
I am looking to put an overhead in my 98 will this work?
