Default Anyone successfull with getting a dash replacement

I bought me a shinny new! (1997 just new to me hehe) ram 1500 and like all rams of that age in florida the dash was cracked has anyone that was not the orginal owner successfull in getting the dealer ship to replace the dash

how much would it cost to get a new dash? and will that one have the same problem? I mean someone has to have identified this problem and made a product to fix this problem by now

I hve been researching vendorsfor my 99 1500. replacements are available in FL and other states. Try, 1. PlasticParts.com; or Sandkindustries.com,; or DashCoversPlus.com; but first try Ebaymotors.com.. Be sure to order the correct year and get the trim code from vin plate in door jam for color code. these and other companies also have dash covers to be glued on top of exsisting dash that look very good and are cheaper $ to purchase. Youtube has exelnt video show-n install.

the fix is to back off the original screws in top part of dash a quarter of turn or so.... seem that factory installed them just a hair too tight resulting in the cracking.... if you are replacing i would put a strip of the soft side of velcro or a very thin one sided foam tape (to eliminate the possible tap or creaking sound that the "looser" screws may introduce) and not crank the new dash as much as original was...

this method has been verified by many as the best fix to prevent cracking or keep them from cracking even more
