You can use a 1 DIN unit with the flip up or flip down screen, and use the proper mounting bracket from someone like Scoche or Metra, and it'll fit fine. They even have one with a "CD tray" under...

The 1995 chassis has a SBEC with a single 60 pin connector, the 1996 PCM is a JTEC with three connectors.

Doesn't matter without rewiring, it won't fit.

They might.

OTOH, why not investigate an upholstery shop?

Even if the Durango seats fit, find some and have them recovered in leather.

Sounds like the fuel pickup is leaking at about the 1/2 tank mark.

Easiest fix is to just replace the fuel pump assembly; I'd keep the old one and in free time rebuild it for the next cycle.

Sounds like you have a crack in the fuel line inside the gas tank; I'd replace the fuel pump assembly. Or at least pull the current one and check it out.

Goes stone cold when it's overheating, but gets hot again when the motor hits 1500+ RPM? Water pump failing (possibly the impellers rotted out).

So something.

Check the wiring diagrams for your 1994 - the fuel pump relay AND the ASD relay have their coils wired up almost identical. I'd swap the two, see if you get spark but no fuel.

Sounds like you have another problem.

And, oh, for 1994, no ECM programming needed; that's for newer vehicles.
