Default Headliner

I have a 93 standard cab with the wire framed vinyl headliner. Are the 96-97 molded headliners DIRECT fit on the older D21s? The rear plastic pillar trim over the seatbelt I know is different but would I be able to use my existing front pillar trim from the 93? Or do I need to get the front pillars from a 96-97 also?

Just want to be sure before I start tearing down my existing headliner

Side note, I have a 96 and when I had the headliner out being redone I noticed holes for a handle mount on the drivers side, passenger side had one already.
Ordered from Nissan and installed...

I've only hit my head on it twice in a year!

You should be able to modify the headliner cardboard but do it before you get the headliner installed on it, check visors as well.

Okay so if they are different will they still fit/mount right up? Are the mounting snap-on clips the same location? I already have the headliner and the two rear panels. Just need the front now.

Only difference is the map light option on the later models verses the early models. You can use your existing A-pillar trims. The later models are made of cardboard(box material), Try and find one pre-1993. These are made of a hardboard material and are more durable to future recovering them.

Every "pre-1993" model I have seen does not have a hardboard headliner. They have a wire frame that goes across with vinyl stretched across. My understanding was the 96-97 had the hard headliner.
