Glad to help. EBay has some as well. I have a cover on mine for now and hate it. The rattling was getting on my nerves and I am planning on replacing it after it warms up, so it's ok til then.

LMC ones are also treated to withstand UV exposure which is partially the reason for the stocks all cracking..

Brought mine at LMC Truck. I change mine out 3 or 4 weeks ago while changing out my heater core. Go to YouTube to get an idea on what’s involved. There is no DIY video for a 98-01 dash style replacement but the videos do help out. You will need to remove the dash air bag on the passenger side. Just Google how to remove the dash air bag and you’ll be fine. There are 15 screws on the underside of the pad that will need to be re-installed and one of those is at an angle, that one is by the light switch on the driver side. Remove the screws that hold it the light switch in the dash to gain access to that one screw. Most of all be patient. It will take 3 – 4 hours to install to get everything line up. Very please how it turn out when done.

the biggest reason the dash cracks on our second generation trucks,is that the firewall was the only anchor,and this left the dash weak instead of reinforcing or support anchors somewhere else to keep it strong.
that is why there was a recall on second generation trucks.
I bought a complete coverlay for my truck and it fits perfectlysee my pictures and you will see.
it was $130.00 well spent
they mold a complete dash out of plastic about 1/2 inch thick and it gluesdown over your original dash,and you can't tell it from brand new
I bought mine from the parts department at the dealership.
