    I have a 94 full size blazer and would like to swap out the dash with one from a 95-98 truck. Same body, different style dash. Other than a needing new wiring harness, does this sound feasable or am I opening pandoras box?

    A co-worker did this when I worked at the wrecking yard.

    I think dash supports were taken from a donor truck and welded to the inside firewall. Also some of the holes in the firewall are different (column & harness for sure). You need the column and all heater components to match. Stay with a '95 donor as this is still TBI.

    Connectors for the other harnesses probably changed with the interior restyle... Some splicing to do anyways.
