June 19, 2009Has anyone had their dash crack yet? Mine just cracked in two different places and they are getting larger. I guess it is from heat. is there anything that can be done besides replacement? that has to be a major job to do!! this totally sucks, and it is just cheap thin plastic! what a bunch of crap!!!
June 23, 2009Yeah, it's very common with these trucks. You can get a dashtop cover off ebay or lmc.com for about 100 bucks. I got this one off ebay:
October 26, 2009Got a cracked dash, got a cover off ebay, its ok
October 26, 2009I would check with LMC, they make covers for the dash to hide the cracks.
October 26, 2009i have a friend that had a cracked dash on his 01. he called chrysler about a month ago and pitched a fit about it. they did a 3 way call to the dealer and he got his dash replaced for free but he had to pay the labor. cost him about $200 compared to the $800 to pay for everything.
October 28, 2009go with one from lmc. i know of a couple guys that have replaced them with oem replacements and they didnt last long before they cracked again. the one in my 98 is cracked, surprisingly the one in my 96 is perfect though
October 28, 2009This must be a ram-specific issue,because both of my dak`s 98-99 dashes are fine
October 28, 2009my 99 is still good, but we don`t get much heat here in MN
November 2, 2009accuform, in my opinion, has the best dash cover. it completely covers the whole top of the pre 2002 dashs and the 02 and up is a two piece that cover the back where the defrost vents are and the front half. they are very very clean lookin and fairly easy to put on, the late model have to be painted but i think they got color match for the early models
