    It's plug and play, just pull the panel off, unhook two clips ... put the new panel on and plug back in.

    If you wanted to do a race, you could do it in maybe 90 seconds with no tools.
    1. By hand, gently remove the dash trim piece that is left of the steering wheel.
    2. Remove the light control switch and dimmer switch, they are just held in with clips.
    3. There are two unused cables connected to the back of the trim piece, these are the ones you will be using for your DIC controller.
    4. Plug the clips into the DIC module in your new panel.
    5. That's it, you're done.

    Wow, we sold quite a few of these since Friday night. We'll make certain to order a bunch to get ready for the demand.

    I hope that everyone gets their DIC, hooks it up, takes photos and tells their Silverado-owning friends how easy it was.

    Wow, we sold out of these units! We're officially in backorder status for the DIC units.

    We have another order placed, not sure when we will receive them. I think that we will sell out of those as soon as it comes in also, so place your order now if you want to get one of them when they come in (knowing that we're having a hard time getting enough supply). Clearly this is a case where we're going to have to put pressure on GM to start building more of these so we can sell more.

    Again, we have SOLD OUT of the DIC units as of 9/21/09 and we have another order placed but we can not ship until supply reaches up to demand.

    Just a note to everyone who placed an order for the DIC ... all but two or three will ship today, and those we will have to hunt around for. However, we will do whatever it takes to care of you even if we lose money on the deal and get you the parts that you ordered.

    Thanks for the order, we saw it come in. Hope you saw the message from 10:00 AM this morning, we're waiting for more supply to come in as we SOLD OUT of this item due to overwhelming response!

    We'll keep taking the orders at this price as long as people keep the orders coming in ... even if we lose money on the deal we're in this for the long run. Our official GM supplier has us on order, but we have not gotten a good shipping date, it will not be this week but we'll keep everyone posted as I feel we could sell 10,000 of these if we have enough supply.

    Yikes! Hope my order got processed in time! Glad to see the good turnout for this. I have two friends who drive new Silverados that I'm going to tell about this deal also.
