    My dash is starting to crack badly. Most annoying part is the rattles over bumps.
    Does anyone have experience or recommend a dash cover?

    In Houston I’ll probably destroy any new dash I’d put in so I’m just going to cover this one while I can.

    ETA: it’s the tan (neutral) color interior if that matters.

    A new dash is about $500 plus labor. There are two companies that make different style overlays but once installed, makes accessing stuff inside near impossible. For near thirty years I bought "Dash Mats" brand dash mats for my cars. After buying this truck, they had a 2 month back order and wasn't willing to wait so went with "RZs Custom Dash Cover" by seller 5766ray on ebay.

    They can be secured with velcro but I always just toss them up there and leave them, don't really move around and makes it easy to clean and vacuum.

    FWIW I have a carpet thing from dashmat (I think)

    It's sure not a custom fit but it's 95% there. Bit of ironing and some velcro get ya looking like a proper old man.

    Looks like you've got a 99?

    Reinforce it and get a cheap cover and call it a day imho.

    Not my truck, but this looks like a dash cap. Painting it to match would probably go a long way.
