View Full Version : Source for dashes?
02-08-2003, 04:31 PM
Wondering if anyone knew of a good source besides a salvage to get a dash for my 92. I replaced the headlight switch today and after taking off the front face plate of the dash, I noticed hair line cracks in the plastic brackets of the dash all over the place. Anyone know a company that carries dashes? If I cant find nothin, I might just put a FLD Frieghtliner dash in it. [laugh]<br><br> Thanks Guys,<br> Monty

<br>Try the following<br>http://www.car-part.com/<br>---<br>Al<br><br><br>Thanks for the link! Does anyone know if the 1/2 ton Dodge dash assembly is the same as the D350CTD? I see alot of listings for the 1/2 ton dashes.
I think that it is time for someone to tool up and make a nice replacement dash for our trucks designed to take two 3 3/8 guages (speedo and tach) and enough 2 inchers to cover all the crap that we have to put into pods, etc. and make it out of some nice 1/16th" aluminum so it doesn't rattle and squeak every time you start the truck on a cold day . . .<br><br>I have been planning on making something like that ever since I bought my truck, but I just don't have time. It seems like we have a market of at least two :) for some enterprising individual.

LOL, I have thought about fabbing my own dash but I just dont know how to go about it. Havent ruled it out though. I have also been looking at some of the dash repair kits to try and save some money. One that seems to be pretty good is http://www.superiorrestoration.com or http://www.fitzgeraldrestoration.com<br><br>

the dashes would be the same across all the trucks 100-350, if optioned similarily (cargo light, PTO, things like that that stick in the dash)
Monty --<br><br>Please let us know what you end up doing -- and if you come up with any quick ideas of improvements on the dash mounting . . . <br><br>Also -- do your-all's seat-belt reels rattle like crazy? Mine are both reasonable if you are wearing the belts, but driving around with no passenger it can get annoying. Any experience fixing this?<br><br>Thanks,<br><br>Alec
