    So my first truck was my 1994 c1500 I used to beat the piss out of and do "cool custom homemade modifications" now I'm trying to fix my mistakes and actually take care of this truck but some damage has been done and I was wondering what newer replacements I can use. My door panels are DESTROYED and my driver seat is broken and the frames bent in the reclined position anyways I was wondering if I could put newer doors (97?) In and how hard those would be to replace with my doors now instead of just doing door panels and what I could do for seats! Here's some pictures of my old girl.

    No pics, I've got the same truck 94c1500 ecsb. If I'm right the dash has to be swapped out if you use the 96 an up doors. Seat coukd easily be swapped out, I broke mine the first time I owned it and ended up using a tow strap wrapped around it for couple months.

    95+ Door panels wont work with the 95- dash. Seats from any gmt 400s will swap in though.

    I thought 95+ panels would work with the old style dash. IIRC it just leaves a larger gap between the dash & door panel, you'll have to make a spacer to push in the plunger for your dome light.

    Edit:
    I found a pic of one, but I know I've seen others.

    Well learned something today, I thought the entire dash had to be swapped.
