i have one in my 95 and i wouldn't think there would be a year difference. its a plug and play set up for 95 and up. but if you put it in a 95-97 you have to swap out the temp gauges due to the 95-97 having a resistor on the back. the gauge will bounce back and forth.

Truck is prewired for a tach. So if you get one with a tach it's just plug and play
