    Default May purchase - need some info :

    I am looking at several C1500's in the 89-94 range, and was wondering if it's possible to EASILY install 5.25 - 6.5" speakers int he doors of these trucks?

    Also, I have seen reference, but no guides on this - so curious - how would one go about swapping out the 1995 dash and gauges, and door panels into one of the older trucks?

    I am looking at these trucks as they are the one's in my budget range locally - would rather just GET a 95 or newer truck, but cannot afford one.

    Hey MaxWgn ,
    I own a 88 GMC and a 96 Silver-oddo ..........

    I really think if the interior is that important find a 95 or newer .

    Changing the door panels would be sort of easy .

    The DASH would be a MAJOR undertaking , NOT worth the money or time !
    UNLESS you are planing to for this to be a forever truck !

    The problems are endless ! NOTHING is the same !
    Air conditioner controls being the hardest to switch over !
    IF you find a dash find one with out air bags !

    good luck , sounds like a fun project ! lots of time and planing here .

    I have a 1970 CADILLAC that I have wanted to put a 1966 dash in for 30 years !

    My mind says go for it , My mind says TINT the windows and hide it ................
    Chevy parts
