trouble putting my dash back together

so i completely disassembled the interior of my jeep just over 6 months ago and have slowly been putting it back together, i did this to fix some cracks in the floor board, spray a bed liner, remove an alarm and stereo system. i did not think it would take me nearly this long but it seems like everytime i turned the corner there was something else that needed fixing, or something was coming up keeping me from it. so getting to the point. in the over 6 months, i've forgotten the order of how some things go in and where they go, etc. but unfortunately, i'm not even to the point of asking those questions yet.... the seal under my windshield had been leaking and my dash (the actual metal piece) was practically rusted away, i had to buy a "new" one, the only one i could find came from davey's jeep parts, and i'm pretty sure it came from a 92-95 model YJ, where as mine is a 91. theres is i slight difference in the tach and speedo setup of these two. so finally, my question. can i still use this "new" dash with my old instruments? i can already a couple of the mounting holes dont line up so i'll have to drill, but will i run into any other problems?

98% of people when they are about to go into the ditch say "oh shit!" The other 2% are Minnesotans and when we are about to go into a ditch we say "Hold my beer and watch this shit!"
