Default Have some Conversion questions

Im doing some coversion (swaps) on the 93 and am curious about what will fit, doing the work is not a prob and parts availability is not a prob. Ive found 2 05's and am wondering can I swap the entire enterior into mine (dash and all) I imagine the column might need to be modified but will the dash where it bolts in? I know the front clip will fit (or so I have read still unclear though). Thanks in adavance for the help, and also if the 05's wont fit which year can I upgrade the dash too? 93 is just very atractive lol

It can be done, but will be work. you state that's not an issue though.
However, as for swapping the front clip... If I'm not mistaking, the body lines on the '05 front clip will not match the body lines on the '93 cab / bed.
Again, that may not be a problem for you though.

the dash will not bolt in. not even close. the mounting points are different, the firewall shape is different, the wiring is different, the steering column is different, the hvac is different, the gauges are different. get the point?
