Default 1994-1997 dashboard

Can you take a 1997 ford rangers dashboard and put it in a 1994 ford ranger?

sure. is it worth the work involved, no. it will be a custom job. it will NOT bolt in. all the mounts are different, the steering column is different, the fire wall is different, the heater box is different, the wiring is different. see the trend? 97 wiring will not interchange with a 94, 97 steering column will not bolt in place of the 94.

Yeah, they fit exactly the same... However, I didn't even take my dash out to paint it. When it comes down to it, it's just a lot of annoying, pointless work to do it.

Might sound a bit "Ranger-racist" but I only REALLY like 93-97's.
