Get our aftermarket full replacement dash top for your 2nd Gen '98-'02 Dodge Ram 2500/3500 or '98-'01 Dodge Ram 1500 trucks and help make the interior of your truck look new again. This is a full replacement dash top and not a cover. It is made in the USA with ABS plastic that is designed to help keep the sun from making the dash crack like the OEM dash. The dash top is only available in black.
We recommend that the dash be painted to match and to add one more layer of UV protection and cut down on its reflection in the windshield. Left unpainted, the replacement dash is quite reflective and will typically cause a glare on the inside of the windshield on a sunny day.
We will also include a copy of issue 82 of the TDR with an article on replacing the dash in a '98-'02 Dodge Ram 2500/3500.
- Made from heavy duty ABS plastic.
- Reinforced mounting holes.
- More durable than the original OEM part.
- Molded in black so it can be painted to match interior
- Made in the USA.
To install the replacement dashboard you will have to remove the front dash so you can slide the dashtop forward. Some minor trimming and modifications will be required to make it fit.
Because all the holes for mounting the dash are cut on a 5 axis CNC machine, we have found that if the holes that locate the airbag tabs are off, then all of the holes across the front of the dash will be off. The part of our dash description that states, "some minor trimming might be required" pertains to some potential tweaking of the cut outs to get the tabs to fully seat. We recommend using a rat tail file after inspecting with a small mirror to determine which of the air bag tabs are not wanting to seat properly. You can also go in and finesse the louvers that are cut into the plastic at an angle to get them looking more finished. The OEM louvers typically crack if you try to remove them from an OEM dash, so we chose to have the louvers cut at an angle to direct the air to the side windows. Take the rubber from around the a pillars off the original dash and adhere them to the new dash so that you get a clean finished look around the a pillar.
NOTE: This dash fits all Sport and Non-Sport model trucks.
NOTE: We recommend replacing the old heater core and A/C evaporator at the same time as dash replacement.
NOTE: A flat $50.00 shipping fee applies to the continental U.S. deliveries. Actual shipping will be applied for all other areas within the U.S. We cannot ship this part to U.S. Territories or Internationally due to the high cost to ship.
NOTE: This is a dash top only. You will receive what is pictured.

Full dash replacement

Owner Response:Thank you for taking the time to share your installation with us. We list it as a replacement dash because many customers call and ask if it is an overlay that goes over the existing broken dash. The broken components that you are referring to is the dash frame, and I am not aware of anyone that sells an aftermarket replacement but some dealers do still have them available. I will get the wording changed to a replacement dash top to help clarify the description.

Owner Response:Thank you for the feedback. Our dashes are made out of ABS plastic with a UV coating, and even though it is hard plastic, you should not have cracking issues like the OEM dash.
I am very happy with my purchase

Owner Response:Thank you for your review. We have found these same issues using OEM dashes on some trucks. Some go together easily, and others not so much. If the air bag assembly is firmly bolted down it makes this more difficult. Leaving the air bag assembly loose allows the plastic cover more movement to line up with the dash. You can also come in from behind and above the air bag assembly with a long extension to support the back of the dash. This keeps the dash from flexing allowing the plastic clips of the air bag plastic cover to pop into the dash more easily. The instrument cluster bezel can tricky, especially if some of the metal clips have been bent. A small pick used to move the metal clips of the bezel into the proper position as you gently work your way around the bezel greatly helps line everything up.

Missing lots of mounting holes

Owner Response:Thank you for your review. Selling this dash for over 7 years, we know that not every truck is the same, and all too often the dash frame is cracked causing some mounting points to not line up properly. This is why we suggest having a file on hand to make minor adjustments allowing our dash and the dash frame to mesh together properly. We also know that not using the defrost plenum mounting screws that face towards the rear of the truck is not an issue. The defrost plenum is mounted to the metal brackets that are used when the dash is mounted to the firewall. The drivers and passenger window defrost mounting is double sided tape, but when the dash is mounted to the dash frame, everything lines up and allows the air to exit the louvers cut into the plastic at an angle to direct the air to the windows. Once the dash is installed, all of the defrost ducting is sandwiched between the dash top and the dash frame keeping them from moving around or vibrating. Our goal when developing this replacement dashtop was to offer the easiest installation at the lowest price we could.
