    My partially new truck (new engine, tranny, radiator, carpet, bed liner, headliner) was stolen. We just recovered it. Due to fact that is was being worked on for the past 3 years, no insurance.
    I need to go to craiglist, junk yard.. for the following items. May I know what other years these items came with so I can widen my search:
    Front Seats (mine were not electrical)
    Center storage bin (one between the seats)
    Dash around the radio

    Thanks so much for your help

    1995-2000 parts should be the same. If you can find one, A "Limited" will have a better drivers bucket seat with more adjustments that you will appreciate on long drives.

    I think the dash would be 98 - 00.

    Be careful with 2000 model items, that was a transition year and I've seen some half and half carryover/new stuff in that year.

    Assuming you mean bucket seats.

    Get 01-04 seats as well as an 01-04 center console/cup holder assembly. Massive upgrades

    Do the seats and center console from these years a direct bolt on? I bought a pair of seat from ?tacoma and would require (3) hours each from my mechanic to safety and correctly adapt to my truck.

    Thanks so so much

    I had 01-04 buckets in my 98 single cab, they bolted up but had to punch out the holes near the center hump in the back of the cab and use a nut and bolt there. Otherwise it was a direct fit.
