03 dash replace instructions?

Anyone have a link on how to replace the cracked dash on the 03-05 rams ? I bought a good used factory one and want to replace mine.

Thanks
Stanger

I have a link to another site with a thread on how to pull a dash. (The pic's are no longer visible.) Should be able to reverse the procedure. Will that help?

Anything would help. It was a bear getting the donor out. I think it may be easier to unbolt the dash frame and tilt it out to unhook the defrost vents

Hopefully this has some helpful info. for you. Maybe you can do a write up and we can make it a sticky for other's who need help? Oh! thinking about it I remember at one time someone was making a dash cap that was suppose to fit pretty good. (just thought I would mention that for a option) Here it is Stanger.

To remove the dash, watch this video or any other one about doing a heater/evap core replacement.

Dash comes out in less that 20mins I swear.

Remove pillar panels
Remove cowl panel remove cowl screws
Remove lower cash panel cover a two screws there
Remove dash side plugs passenger side 2-3 of them
Remove drivers side dash plugs 2-4 of them
Drop column don’t remove
Disconnect parking brake release lever
Remove hidden 10s above column but under dash
Remove dash side bolts and remove dash.

It’s very easy to do just looks intimidating. The top section is easier to split when dash unit is out of the truck.
