Default Cracked Dash

I have noticed about 6 months ago that my Dash was cracking. Now i have several cracks along with HOLES in my dash from it all falling apart, Does anyone else have or heard of any issues with this?

Ive noticed with this gen of truck if you see one without cracks you need to find the owner and see what kind of voodoo they did..

I had a '94 with a perfect dash...for three days, then it got stolen. I made sure to get the cracked dash option on the next truck so maybe it won't be as appealing.

Nothing uncommon for this generation ram . Depending on how bad it is you may luck out and try a dash cap . www.dashcaps.com

My 96 had a perfect dash but that could have been because it was parked inside at least half of its life.

My 97's dash had plenty of cracks and holes in it, I ended up just getting a cover and using A LOT of double sided foam tape or whatever you wanna call it, i still talk to the new owner and it still looks brand new!

My 95' has too many cracks to count anymore. I'm thinking about just buying a new dash...
