1997 Chevy cab any major troubles?

7 Answers


Are going to use all the 97 instruments and dash or just the sheet metal?

I would like to

Or would it be easier to use old dash and instruments


If everything works in the donor cab I would use it complete with all the goodies inside. Why do you want to do the swap? That is a LOT of work for what benefit?

The 93 cab got crushed by a tree and I found a 97 cheap just wanna make sure it would work like the wiring will the fenders line up?


Probably but if this was my project I would use the entire cab -- fenders, hood and cab. Good luck.


Make sure the frame was not bent by the falling tree.
