FX4 insterment cluster in a 96 XLT??

I am looking to put a new instrument cluster in my ranger so i can have a tach , a working temp gauge and all my gauges light at night and i was wondering if i could use the cluster out of an FX4 in my 96 XLT?

I just put a 2003 Ranger Edge cluster in my 1996 ranger. You just have to look and see what lights might be different..... For example, my check engine light now reads Check Susp, and my Door ajar light reads Check fuel cap. But everything else works; gauges, tach, speedo, odo, etc.
I know that a 2004 and later cluster will not work though. The lateest you can use is a 2003.

some 95-97 guys have had to swap the water temp gauge. some 95-97 have a resistor, while all 98+ do not. it's not a big deal to do if needed.
