Got my truck finally back!
What an headache. They wanted me to pay $1200 dollars worth of labor for there time of looking for the problem as they said someone untaped the factor tape around the wire harness to the instrument cluster.
They where billing for replacing the instrument cluster, the pats system, and the GEM but they said my aftermarket ford warranty would cover the parts but was only going to pay for 3 hours of labor and I had to pay for 16 hours ($1200)the rest, or I was going to have to pay for everything and they where going to viod my warranty. This pissed me off with the attidude they said it like they where doing me a favor by getting the warranty to cover a part of the repairs. I said I only signed for 1 hour worth of diagnostic labor and this would let me know if it would be covered or not, but not 16 hours. To make a long story short I got super lucky and it only costed me my $50 deductable. And the mechanic said the only thing they did was move/shift the RX and RT wire over one pin on the cluster harness.
I swear I counted right, but this was the whole problem, nothing else was wrong.

Well it is good to hear you got your truck back. Also nice to here that you had the dealer by the balls and won. This post had alot of people curious and following up every day. It was a soap opera for us guys!  Well good luck in the future and sont let something like this stop you from doing future installs. It seems you know now to use the proper parts.
