About 3 plugs to undo, about 6 bolts, about 4 screws and about 1-2 hours of time.

^^^ that's what i'm looking for. see... i'm weird, i keep my seat way up... i dunno why, but, i usually drive with my knees almost in the dash. and i'm fat. so the tilt would be nice.

i think in addition to fronty's being hard to find in a junkyard, how many came w/tilts? i really shoulda jumped on a parting out i saw on ebay last year... the tilt column and the 04 dash swap woulda been cool...

As far as fronties I have no idea but likely any SE model would have one...the SE HB's did.
