A few 1995-only things that kinda suck but not enough to make me not buy a truck if it's a good deal.  I don't care for the newer interior as it in general has a lot of weaker elements than 1994-older, but that's probably more personal preference of mine than anything else.

1995 has a one-year-only A/C controller that goes bad and you won't find a good 1995 unit in the boneyard, you'll shell out $160+ for a new one which will be a 1996-up piece with an adapter harness included.  Of course those go bad too...

1995 has a one-year-only automatic trans but since you're NV4500 that doesn't matter

1995 seems to suffer a little more trouble with the electrical portion of the ignition switch than the other years, for some reason, I guess they revised it for 96-up

Of course engine harness is totally unique to that year at least for the gas trucks, probably very similar for 6.5's from 1995-up though.  Not of much concern to you other than messing around during the engine conversion.

Hell at that price if the body is decent and it has good tires, the rest is a freebie. ;)

 Hey, I remember the 95's having the odd dash wasn't sure on the wiring. I do have a 97 manual shift steering column from a diesel. The tires decent tread, not sure if any cracks in them and the mileage is alittle high,229.000.. The front end has recently been re-aligned and the underside is somewhat clean for its age. Body and frame no rust/dents.

My K3500 had 315,000 on the clock and cost nearly twice that! Of course it was on its second 6.5, second 4L80 and had a rusty front clip.

Ok, looked the truck over real well yesterday and drove it. WOW it actually hauls the mail. it has a lot of power to be a 6.5...The catch is the guy is going to pull motor and trans together to put in a 01 same truck. He said he would give me the 01 NV4500 to go with the 95.so now I decide vortec 454 or 5.9Cummins. either way ive got the truck unless something happens.
