The vss really isn't the problem. It's getting the correct gear on the end of it. Just hit up a JY and pull out all the hvac ducting and a gauge cluster either out of a pathy or hb. If it's pathy or V6 adjust the blue dial on the backside. Someone can shime in on the clocking positions. I don't see how you can make a square dash cluster work in that lol.

U can't and I wasn't gonna try lol....the guy sold me the gauge cluster but took out the speedometer bc he said he had someone screw him over last time he sold one I guess they messed w the mileage idk but a fellow IN member is hooking me up w all the hvac and a speedometer so it's all good...I've done a lot w cars but I've always stayed away from electrical so I'm just tryin to llearn as much as possible before I start ripping my dash out and putting a new one in lol

DO not use brackets behind dash from a 96 or 97. Make sure to use only 94-95 Hardbody or Pathfinder main metal brackets. The right hand small dash bracket will need a few small holes drilled to make the dash mount properly. Im putting in a round dash in my 87 right now. Only modification I had to do was that.
