Default replacing 95 xl dashboard with a 96 xlt dash

I wrecked my 96 ford ranger xlt a couple days ago, it has a decent interior everything works but the gas gauge. i got a 95 xl the other day, i think it was a government work truck at one point, it has a pretty rough interior and even if it was in nice condition it isnt as nice at the other trucks. I am planning on switching the entire interior over. the only thing im not sure about fitting is the dash and gauge cluster. has anyone done a swap like this or have any information on if it would work or not. any help is appreciated.

95 and 96 have the same dash. If the "95" has the square dash and doesn't look the same as the 96 then the truck isn't a 95 but probably a 94.

Should be able to. You have the parts truck so you have all the wiring and such. But not exactly sure
