16 explorer Ltd head unit swap to 15 F-150?

I have a 16 explorer Ltd with 7” head unit that I rarely drive, I also have a 15 F-150 scab with a 4” display. I’d like to put my HU from explorer into my f150. Is this possible if I buy the dash kit for the upgraded screen size or am I hoping for too much? I don’t see why it could be an issue but if anyone can guide me to success or a how to or maybe even just say it’s not possible I’d be grateful. Thank you.

Not an expert, but the fascias for the faces are different, so you's need to purchase the faces for both trucks. Not sure if the amps are the same, most probably would need to be switched as well. The you'd need to have the software reconfigured for the new display. Might be cheaper in the long run to purchase an after market for the F150 with a dash kit.

Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?

Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?
