Replacement Dashboard For Older Dodge Pickups
Back in 2016, Geno’s Garage of Cumming, Ga., needed to find a dashboard replacement for their 1999 Dodge truck. They soon found out they weren’t the only ones in need of a new dash.
“At one time, Dodge trucks were notorious for dash failures,” says Brandon Jacobs, who works in product development for Geno’s Garage. “That was especially true with the 1998 to 2002 models.
“If your dash weren’t shattered, cracked, or otherwise falling apart, it was only a matter of time before it would be,” he adds.
Geno’s started getting a lot of requests for replacement Dodge dashboards. Jacobs says they’d tried using replacements supplied by other companies but weren’t satisfied with them.
“We met with a small plastics company that told us they could make one, and off we went,” he says.
The process was a little easier because they didn’t want to modify the dashboard, only find materials that would make it stronger. “We just reverse-engineered the original,” he says.
“We use an ABS plastic in forming the new dash, which will hold up better under sunlight and won’t warp,” he says.
They also doubled the plastic on the new dashboards at the mounting points to make them more robust.
The replacement dashboard sells for $259.95.
