Default 1994 XLT Instrument Cluster Change?

Hello, I was wondering what years above the 94 3.0L XLT Ranger instrument cluster would work if I decided to change the instrument cluster. Say would a 98-99 instrument cluster work in a 94?

I believe 94-97 are a direct swap, the newer ones would require modification for fitment etc..

95+ will not go in a 94 and older. 94 and older are completely different shape, and use a mechanical speedo cable. 95+ are completely electronic with no speedo cable. they will not even physically fit in the dash.

1993 is the last year of the old "Square" cluster. 1994 - 1997 are the same.

negative. 95 was the first year for the new style.

My 94 XLT had the rounded cluster with the dome dash.
hmmm, maybe it was a late 94? I never checked and it's dead and gone now.

if it had the new dash, then it was a 95. that's when the interior was redesigned.
