I own
95-3500 not cracked
96-3500 not cracked
97-3500 not cracked
98-3500 not cracked
95-1500 cracked to pieces
From looking in local wrecking yards and all the trucks my friends own ,I have came to the conclusion that armor all or any other oily stuff you spray on there is what makes them crack. My one tons all are work-farm and get bounced around but dont get cleaned
often other than wiped off with soap and water. I am pretty certain the sun heating the dash with oily chemicals hardens the plastic causing them to become brittle.

The dash on my 2002 has been cracked since I bought it last year. Its not as bad as some 2nd gens I have seen, but cracked more than I'd like.

2002 ram 1500 Cracked

Has anyone used the dash covers you can find on ebay or http://www.dashcoversplus.com ? They fit over the old cracked dash. only thing is they don't have new vents they are just cut out, so if your vents are cracked as mine are, shit will still fall in the vents, seems like someone would make a product with dash vents. Or it would be nice if Dodge made a good product....

Mine just recently cracked. Single crack down the middle, little to the passenger side. Only used a detailing fluid once on it, and I keep a sun shade up when it's out for very long. Looked into a dash cover- ABS plastic that silicones over the dash. Guaranteed not to crack. Question is, how well does it hold up if I ever have to pull the dash?

BTW- bezel is cracked up pretty good too. Where do you measure for replacement? Come in 2 3/4 and 3 3/4 inch.
