Description

Fix your 07-13 Silverado LS/LT/Work Truck or Sierra SL/SLE/Work Truck dashboard with a molded plastic dash cover from DashSkin! This cover is molded to the exact shape of your vehicle's dashboard, and mounts right over the top to cover cracks and holes. The cover spans both halves of the two-piece dashboard as one solid piece, making the finished product super stealthy and hard to detect for passengers. The cover requires no special tools to install, and mounts using silicone adhesive (included). The workmanship of the cover is warranted for life against cracking, warping, etc. DashSkins even work great with large pieces of dash missing, as long as there is enough dashboard left on all edges (perimeter) to serve as a stable and level foundation for the cover. If you have cracks you will be covering, we advise cleaning your original dashboard well with degreaser, and bracing any cracks using 100% silicone RTV adhesive to prevent further cracking or rattling. (scroll down to purchase an extra tube if you need it for lots of cracks in your dash, or if you have holes you'd like to outline with adhesive). IMPORTANT: THIS COVER ONLY FITS CERTAIN TRIM PACAKGES OF SILVERADO AND SIERRA TRUCKS! It is compatible with 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 Silverado LS, LT, and Work Truck trims, and 07-13 Sierra SL, SLE, and Work Truck trims (in other words, only fits DUAL GLOVEBOX style dashes). If you have a Silverado LTZ or Sierra SLT/Denali, check out our part numbers 0714GM and 0714GMS.

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO PIECE KIT AND THE ONE PIECE DASH COVER?
Our one-piece design is ideal for customers looking for the stealthiest, most seamless possible finished product. The one-piece blends in a little better since it lacks the gap between the two pieces, and it can be used in situations where you are missing more of your dash and have holes to cover. The two piece kit on the other hand allows for easy removal of the front defrost section (to replace the ambient light sensor). When in doubt, go with the one piece! You won't regret it, as it is quicker to install, a little more cost effective, and looks killer all said and done!

HOW TO HELP STOP ANNOYING RATTLES: If your dash is rattling or sqeaking, using EXTRA silicone adhesive in all of the cracks can help make a huge difference! Apply the first tube of silicone that is included with the cover to the underside of the skin just like the instructions specify, then use your extra adhesive (purchased from us or at any hardware store, 100% silicone RTV adhesive) to apply directly to the dash itself to fill all cracks with a thick bead of silicone, and outline any holes (if you have holes) with the silicone just before installing the cover. We don't recommend allowing this to cure first, apply the skin while all of silicone on the cracks is still wet so the cracks bond to the underside of the skin, this way the cover can help hold everything still like a membrane of support. If you have rattles coming from underneath the dash, obviously this surface treatment will not help stop those noises, but for the vast majority of our local installs, this little trick works extremely well! NOTE: If the clips under your defrost dash panel (nearest the windshield) are broken, be sure to consider applying some silicone to the broken clips as well to hold that piece still, this can be a hidden source of rattles as well.

A WORD OF ADVICE: If you have not already brought your vehicle to a GM dealer for the Takata airbag recall replacement, we recommend doing so before installing your skin.

Why DashSkin?

What makes our AMERICAN MADE product worth the higher price compared to the flood of imports?

1. SUPERIOR MATERIAL AND BUILD QUALITY - Our product is made of high quality, thick ABS plastic, which is well-suited for covering large gaps of missing dashboard sections without failing. The competition uses thinner, lower quality polypropylene plastic because it is a much cheaper material…but PP is much more likely to warp during periods of intense sun abuse. Our product is trimmed via CNC for ultra-accurate edges that look OEM and blend in; the competition trims by hand, leading to wavy and inconsistent edges and openings.

2. FACTORY MATCHED COLORS - Our colors are OE-matched for a sleek, factory looking finish. Sometimes our matches can land a little lighter or a little darker than your dash depending on fade, but you can count on it being close enough to blend in so well that your passengers won't notice it's there!

3. VEHICLE-SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONS - All of our products include vehicle-specific color instruction guides that cover every step of the process in great detail. Most of our catalog also has full length install videos as well!

4. KNOWLEDGEABLE AMERICAN SUPPORT - A real life American human is just a phone call, text, or email away to assist with any and all questions you might have about your project! Just click the Contact Seller button as if you wish to send us a message, and eBay will display our phone number to the bottom right of the text box.

5. SUPPORT AMERICAN MANUFACTURING - 100% of our research, development and manufacturing takes place in the UNITED STATES, and we are committed to keeping it that way! We hope you will consider this when deciding where to send your hard-earned money. America's manufacturing base evaporates a little more each day thanks to the race-to-the-bottom mentality of overseas manufacturers, and the power to stop that problem lies only in the hands of you, the buyer.

We are passionate about producing a high quality product that solves an expensive problem for everyday drivers, and hope you will contact us if you have any questions. Thank you for taking the time to read this!

FAQ

If the dash is properly reinforced during your dashskin installation, the skin can help hold the dash still and prevent annoying rattles and squeaks.

40F is the coldest recommended temperature, our adhesives will not fully harden in temps below this. Remember to allow for additional cure time (up to 12 hours) for installing in temperatures this low! Our 100% silicone RTV adhesive uses ambient humidity in the air to cure, so the colder and drier the air is, the more time the silicone will need to fully harden.

In warmer temperatures (60+F) we recommend at least 6 hours. In lower temps (down to 40F) we recommend at least 12 hours.

The benefits of using the one piece cover are that there are fewer seams for your eyes to catch, making it blend in better and look a little more factory-original, and being a unibody design makes it structurally more rigid and usable in situations where you are missing bigger sections of dash. The two piece kit allows for removal of the smaller front defrost section (to replace the light sensor) without having to take the dash covers off of the dash, which for some is a huge selling point; but bear in mind since there IS a small gap between the two pieces, any cracks you may have where the gap is might be visible, so if you have lots of cracks or holes, the one piece is definitely the way to go.

NO. DashSkin is a rigid, molded plastic dash cover meant to install OVER your old dash to cover cracks and holes. While you can use a DashSkin with a lot of your dash missing, the product cannot be used in place of a dash, as it needs structure to mount to.

We do not sell an airbag cover because we do not recommend covering the airbag panel in any way for safety reasons and to abide by NHTSA/DOT regulations. Anything placed over an airbag panel will become a projectile if the airbag deploys, and hard plastic at 250+ MPH can cause serious injury.

DashSkin only needs most of the outer edges remaining on all 4 sides to serve as a foundation to mount to. Remember that any dash material missing on outer edges may have visible gaps where the cover stops.

We ship SAME DAY Monday-Friday until 3pm CST via FedEx Ground and Home Delivery, you can expect delivery in 2-4 business days on average! Shipments to Canada can take 2-7 business days. Please note that these estimates increase during peak holiday traffic.

We recommend cleaning with a wet microfiber cloth only. DO NOT USE ALCOHOL OR SOLVENTS ON THE TOP SURFACE OF THE SKIN as they will strip the paint.

While we typically receive excellent feedback on our color matches, you should be prepared for the match to be a little lighter or darker than your dash. The amount of sunlight vehicles are exposed to can vary substantially, making matching these vehicles a "moving target" so to speak. For this reason, DashSkin offers our dash cover paint in AEROSOL form to make it easy for you to spray other dash components to match your DashSkin for the stealthiest possible install!

If your order arrives damaged, contact us within 14 days of arrival for a replacement! Email us (customerservice@dashskin.com) or text (918.940.8900) photos of the damage and any damage to the box for an immediate reship. Please do not dispose of the damaged item before being instructed to, as FedEx may need to pick it up for inspection.

All DashSkin dash covers are backed by a LIFETIME WARRANTY, covering products that are installed properly. This warranty covers cracking, warping, and any failure related to extreme temperature and sun damage. Exceptions to this warranty include dash covers that have not been installed yet, dash covers that have been placed into the vehicle but not glued (not installed properly), or dash covers that were installed with an unapproved adhesive (as many adhesives can react with and melt ABS plastic).

DashSkin covers are surface painted with a high quality, UV protected finish that will not flake, peel, or fade. We also sell this paint in aerosol form for your other interior components as needed to match them to the skin and restore the look of your interior!

Since our products are large, shipping outside the lower 48 is quite expensive, but feel free to email (customerservice@dashskin.com) or text (918.940.8900) your vehicle model and full address for a quote!

DashSkin covers are fully protected and warranted against extreme UV abuse, so no additional coatings or treatments are required. We do not recommend applying protectants, as anything with a solvent base can remove the paint.
