Just found this great site. I have a '95 Cherokee that's real basic, it has part time 4x4, 4.0L inline six, AC, and that's it on options. It's a 5 speed with manual windows and locks, no alloy wheels, and no instruments. There's just a fuel gauge and a speedo, and lights for everything else. I want to install the instrument cluster from a Cherokee with all the gauges--tachometer, oil pressure, coolant temp, amps, etc. Will this swap right in, or will I need to change out the senders too? I'm afraid the sensors for the coolant temp and oil pressure lights might be different than those for the gauges.

Yup. You will need new sending units for temperature and oil pressure. The senders for the idiot lights are ON/OFF switches...the senders for the gauges are variable resistors.
