I wish I had 3 or 4 days to do that to mine. There's no way I'm going to invest the time to take another Dodge 2nd Gen dash out again. A day out, repair, and a day back in. I'll buy the dash cap and sleep the other 3 1/2 days.

I work in a body shop at a dealership and we are always dying dash covers to slap on for aution trucks. If you buy a quality brand, they dont fit bad and are much more cost effective than an OEM dash.

I was thinking that this may possibly be a recall issue, especially if we have a bunch of us Mopar owners with this problem. i am thinking of filing a complaint with the Gov, since this can cause a fire or a short in the electrical wirings with all the plastic falling into the dash, for the price of vehicles anymore, we try to take care of our stuff and it ends up being a manufacturer issue, I dont think so.

my '01 I bought brand new Christmas of '00 was perfectly fine. No cleaning except wiping with a dry bath towel. That is until last year when I tried Armor-all. Wasn't able to keep up with it and the dash was cracked (in half) within a month.

I am going to LMC to get a replacement dash pad. I'm not a fan of those dash covers and the replacement pad is only $70 more including the extra charge for oversized shipping.

I have been a proud member of the craked dash club since my first ram in 2008... Every time I see a 2nd gen Ram without a crac in the dash I want to shake the owners hand for performing such magic. There is one product I have found that will keep new cracks from forming decently well. Meguiar's Supreme Shine spray.. Dosent leave film on the dash that attracts lint and dust like armor all and it definitely protects the dash better...ALSO you can use it on the front bumper/air damn and it will make it shine like new and all the side rubber trim and that big trim plate on the tailgate.. It's good stuff check it out http://www.meguiars.com/en/automotiv...eg-protectant/
