Default Dash & Side Mirrors

Just bought a 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 Laramie SLT V8 Magnum. Not sure of engine size.

The side mirrors are cracked. Can those be replaced without having to buy the mirror and container?

Also the dashboard is out of it. Where is the most economical place to purchase one of those? Thanks for any help.

Best place to start would be on Craigs list for all your pieces and parts. After that, try the auto recycling places. Don't know what part of Texas you're in, but Grand Prairie has a ton of them up and down Jefferson.

Check out RockAuto they have a Dash Kit. Because the 2nd generation Rams always have cracked dashes. As for mirrors I would go talk to a salvage yard.
Good Luck

Thanks for the replies, guys. Found a guy that will install just the mirror part here close by. Also talked to Coverlay about the dash. So I may just be fixed up.

Will check out RockAuto on their prices. Also used to live in Irving, TX and am familiar with those wrecking yards in Grand Prairie. Been there a few times. Live about 100 miles east of there now. Thanks again.

Good to hear you're getting it taken care of.

Mmmm, love me some east Texas! So much purtier than DFW.
