    Those are dash caps, they install over the original dash. For $200 you get a whole new dash.

    /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif You think for 90 bucks they could include a picture of the product instead of artist sketch. I'd like to know as well, my pad is FUBAR. I have a cover on it right now. Will work for now.

    I put a new urethane one in my K5 from www.cheyennepickup.com - the urethane is supposed to handle sun/heat better than stock. Paid $189 but it was a complete replacement, not a cover, and fit perfectly.

    If you look at the add, it says paint is not recommended on the urethane.

    I know a cat here in Glendale who will re-pad and re-cover the original dash pad with vinyl for $90 with 3 year guarantee. I'm having mine done in the next month or so

    would a dash cap work ona severly cracked up stocker?

    just cut the cracks down to where they would be stock meaning height (as it cracked and warped up)

    They have a pretty wide selection of colors.

    Hmmm, can you PM me that info Jerry? My son's dash is toast and we were looking at one of several replacements, but that sounds like a good deal...

    I have the cap in one truck and the urathane dash in the other. The cap isn't going to win you any points at car show, it isn't a pefect fit, there are a few places where you can see the old dash. It holds up tp sun pretty well, but does scratch easily.

    The urathane looks better, is a solid color and is suppose to hold up well to sun (mines only been on a few month). The are not made that well. The metal clips for screws which are placed in the mold were in the wrong spots, I had to install a few clips on my own and drill the urathane, the dash was a little short - there is a good size gap to the guage cluster on the left.

    I didn't like either that much, but it's cheaper than the $500 Just Dashes charges to remake your existing dash.

    You get what you pay for, but for $200, I was hoping the urathane would be better. It does look much better than the cap though.

    I purchased a new one (not a cap) from the following. It was black and looks as good as the factory original. They had door panels, arm rest pads, and reupholstery kits . /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif
