I have a 2003 SLT 1500 and the dash started cracking about a year ago. Prior to that date a church member showed me his RAM and I could not believe it. I was thinking to myself I don't have that problem and never will. Well, two years later it started and the dealer is telling me 1200 bucks and up to repair. Then he said it will happen again because the material is the problem.

none of my dodge truck dashes have ever cracked, maybe i didn't have them long enough.
RDGAINS, might try googling LMC dodge parts. i have seen them advertised on some of those truck shows.

my 1999 ram 1500 4x4 had a cracked dash
I went to the dodge parts department and I got a coverlay to replace my dash.
a coverlay is a molded piece of plastic that is a perfect mold of our dash including the defroster vents.
it glues over your existing dash,and you can't tell it from the factory dash.
I paid $120.00 for my coverlay,and I couldn't be happier
I have pictures on my avatar here so you can see them.

Bringing this back up.

Had an 02 Ram and loved it...but it did develop the cracked dash on year 6-7. But I know some started cracking in as little as 4 years

I was hoping they would address this in the 4th gens and considering the first ones have been out 5 years im a LITTLE concerned to see 5 people say they have cracks.

Any 2009 owners that can comment?

Im considering getting a 2014.
