Yes. Get all the brackets and ducts from the donor truck. Get the connectors and several inches of wire from each component.

Here is the place you will need to start.--> http://www.infamousnissan.com/forum/...%27s+dash+swap

Yes you will need the metal sub structure from the new dash. It does bolt in using the factory holes.
I have done it in my 86.5 and it all fits and works like factory, physically. You will need to solder in all the new wiring for the dash cluster and some of the accessories(hazard flasher) etc.
Good luck.

No it does not plug up. You have to splice on the new style connectors to the old wiring. http://www.infamousnissan.com/forum/...ad.php?t=20642

Dont get the metal bracketry from a 96-97 truck. The dash itself and ducting is ok to get. The steering column bracket can only be used from a 94-95 Hardbody or pathfinder only.
