    Does anyone have this dash?
    <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.cheyennepickup.com/73pg4.htm>http://www.cheyennepickup.com/73pg4.htm</A>

    How does it look and hold up? Does it fade or crack like the factory ones do? What is the difference between the vinyl and the urethane dash pads? Pics would be great. I am planing on getting the black one and I'm not painting it which is why I can get the urethane version. Its cheaper too.

    ps: Why didnt my clickable link work?

    When all else fails... Check the blinker fluid.

    I have the Vinyl black dash. I bought it before the Urethane one was available. It was expensive, but well worth it. It was a perfect fit and looks wonderful. I've only had it about a year or so, and so far no cracks or fades. I have taken good care of it since I don't want it to crack again. I armorall it about once a month. About the fitting, I only had to trim about 1" near the pillars. I think they made it that way in case you don't have the vinyl covers on the pillars. Besides that, the fit is so good, I don't even have it screwed in. It's just held in by the control panel cover.

    BTW I also bought their aluminum bezel repair kit. It was the perfect complement for the new dash. Now everything looks great. I would have bought the plastic gauge lens, but it was too expensive.

    I don't have any pictures now, but I'l shoot a few soon.

    Check with BlazzinOR, I believe that he has one and loves it. I put a molded overlay on mine and plan on replacing it with a Cheyenne urethane when it goes out.

    Yep, I have the medium gray urethane one.............in the truck almost two years now. No complaints at all, no fading (from what I can tell)..............urethane is supposedly [​IMG] better than the vinyl as it won't warp or crack. Not sure myself but it is a nice dash pad and the price was good. Pics of it on my site below under the Interior Page..............
