Default door panels

Are door panels from 92-95 able to be used on a 96?

Yes, the door panels will cross fit each other will very minor differences.

The only differences I know of are 92-95 have two 7mm bolts by the speakers, 96-99 do not, and 92-95 have two bolts behind the door light and 96-99 have only 1.

I believe JR3800 swapped his up to the 96-99'*.

It may be harder to swap the 92-95 door pannels onto the 96-99, its easier to swap the 96-99 pannels to the 92-95 tho...

If you do attempt to swap make sure you get all of the brackets that go with the pannels...

I haven't swapped all of mine... I will actually remove the one I was messing with and go back to the original pannel for a while... I just don't have enough time to do everything I want or need to, so the newer pannels will hold off for a little while...

In all actuallity I like the 96-99 pannels better... But I'll come back to those in the future..

JR...which brackets are you talking about? The one up by the power mirror switch (ok..where it would be...in the handle) and the one by the light?

Along with those issues it seems the switches fit just a little different. I may play with them awhile but not too long. Got them from the junkyard for 25 bucks, two tone grey leather.

the 92-95 panels are 2 different pieces, and the 96-99 are one piece. The 96-99 have Fatter switches, but that is only the plate. If you have 2 tone leather panels you got them from a 92. What you could do is use the lighter leather by the handle and that whole part on your panel, instead of swapping the whole panel
