Best route is swap entire dash with harness, and all body harness too.

99+ have digital odometers and in addition PATS is tied to the cluster. So that is a huge NO to your question.

You dont need the body harness, I highly doubt it anyway. Look at the plugs, if they plug up, they will most likely work. And your cluster is different anyway with the speedo and rpm's so you would want to change them. And also your hydro brake and pedal assembly.
