My 2010 without the DIC switch had the mounting bracket already on the back of the panel, but, i replaced the panel anyway as I got it for free.

I'm willing to bet it won't. i upgraded mine and the mounting "brackets" are plastic clips that are molded into the panel itself. IMO best bet: just ebay it (that's what i did) and install the entire thing.
Nothing is going to look as good as factory anyways probably, and our trucks are beautiful, why cause blemishes?

I ordered just the switch ($16 or so plus shipping) and cut out the hole with no problem. The switch snapped right in, I put the plug on, and everything worked as advertised.

It would be great to get some more info about how made the cutout in the panel for the switch. I have cut lots of things with a dremel, but I think it would be tough to cut that hole with a dremel and have it look decent. Especially small cuts on top and bottom, the dremel cutoff discs are wider than that cut.
