I ran a search here and googled, but didn't get a bottom-line up front answer. Some sites allude to it, but no one flat out says NO. Thanks.

No! You will need one from a '91-'96. The '97+ are a different style altogether, and '90- have a mechanical speedo. The '91-'96 have an electronic speedo.

Oh, well, I KNEW it was a different style, I just didn't know if it was a swapable item or not. From what I had gathered, the '97+ were electronic as well, but no one had said whether everything matched up or could be made to match up to '96s.

Probably not worth the work but if you're set on it it would take custom mounting. Not sure on the electrical connectors will work, or if they could be sliced in.
