i don't have a cover, i am thinking our trucks are too new for us to be covering the dash. i have some king of vinyl or leatherette on my sport. i am hoping with the increased quality, we don't have to worry about the dash cracking in years to come.
i see you are from florida, and yes that sun is bright on the dash, noticed it with my 04 when i was down visiting the parents. guess, i would look for a cover also if i had to deal with that year round.
