Trying to replace the core support in my 94. I ordered one and it was for a 92. I also found one off a 97 and the guy swears it’ll work. The radiator supports look different. Does anyone know if the 97 supports work on the 94?

Those (94 and 97) are both 3rd generation trucks. I'm thinking it would work.

Bronco graveyard shows 89 to 92 same.
93 and 94 the same.
95 thru 97 the same.

Hmmm...

I figured someone would call me out.

I was thinking they only changed the grills and headlights.

But I think you can trust the Graveyard.

I ended up with a new in box core support in a parts truck deal. I saw someone looking and thought I could move it and help someone at the same time. But no such luck. Mine is the 89 to 92. That was my motivation for finding compatibility. But we all got educated. 😁

The 97 has a 13” or so hole for the radiator and the 94 is about 16” so I don’t see how that’s gonna work. I also bought a new one but it’s for the 92 body style. It said online 91,92,93,94 the bottom are the same but the sides are different

Mine doesn’t look the same as bronco grave yards 93/94. The one I bought looks just like that but it’s not the same. Mine has the dip in the bottom like the 92 style but the top and sides of the 95 style. It’s like a mix of the two put together

I think yours looks just like the 95-97 model. The picture at the graveyard is from the engine side and at an angle so it doesn’t show much of the lower drop. Do you have a build date on your rig. I’ll bet it late 94.

It’s August I think but I have a 97 mount from the junkyard and I don’t think the radiator is gonna fit in it without having that swoop at the bottom

This is the one I found that looks just like it but it’s out of stock everywhere. It have the same headlight holes as the 95+ but the same bottom as the 92

Looks like both are out of stock. Have you checked LMC Truck.
