My center console cover is cracked (like everyone’s I assume).
Has anyone used the covers they sell on eBay as a replacement? Does it
look and fit like a real Dodge cover?
Here is the link for all the different covers.
It’s funny if you scroll down, there is a real viper ram cover for $79 that is as
bad as mine.
 
No problem with mine !
No way in hell would I buy that SRT claimed one hahaha . That’s a complete joke for $79 ..

There are a few listed though that look great ,l as long as the color matches ..
heck ot would be easy enough to make just a fabric cover to protect the lid .. look around the media section , I think I saw one the other day that actually had the viper logo embroidered on it ..
 
Mines fine but it's barely seen sunlight since new. If I were replacing mine I would probably get the whole lid and not just a cover - but I like OEM :)
 
If I were to park outside I would get the laser cit WeatherTech window covers. I have them for my daily and it's as dark as a cave inside when they're all up.

A cover for protecting the original and a lid ot have it reupholstered to factory .

Wish I knew about those before the one I have … mine didn’t protect the plastic dash part where the speaker and defrost vents are .. it actually broke the grates there .. Now I can’t seem to find the part .. mainly need one that is newer and not brittle

Everyone says X2 builders? I think
 
I think I checked them , I looked all over the internet and did see a few in scrap places . Not sure if those would be decent ..

Check with Andy at Usedpartsonlinenetwork.com
Somebstuff isn't listed on his site
Thanks for the link…

I found them on their site .. $100 bucks IMO , to much .. the parts worry me as it’s a very common problem with the Rams and the part becoming brittle and breaking .. so a used one may end up cracking or worse . I doubt they would give any guarantees on those . Dodge used cheap ass plastic everywhere ,, just like the hood scoop inserts .. I’m still seeing insane stupid pricing on those and there the same crap originals that fly off the trucks and shatter into a ton of pieces and lucky they don’t shatter the windshield they hit so hard .. yes already happened to mine .. Amazon has a bunch now and those are equivelent to the factory scoop inserts for $20 to $30 ..

The center console covers I've seen on Amazon have a grain to them where ours are smooth leather.
Probably be easier to get an upholstery shop to match the material

I was seeing the same and thinking a stop at Joanne’s fabrics to see if they have or can order it .. it would also help if you have a close friend that can sew it up and make it fit right :)
 
I found the dash defrost replacement using clips and not those being sold as glue on covers .. $55 new but the one I’m looking at now s Black .. so ima keepa on lookin !
 
Are you looking for red? Har har har

Of course —————————————————————— NOT ! :p



But I found more that use the clips and not the overlay glue ons … as low as $38 .. the seem to be using better plastic than the cheap crap ABS PLASTIC Dodge uses . They are after market , but I still haven’t found the right color . They all seem to be black yet paintable .. For the price is worth the try .. damn Mopar ons are just insanely priced .. Over $300 up to around $500 .. What BULLCHIT .

What color are they? I haven't looked for awhile hahahaha o_O
 
Slate grey .. I have a back and forth with a guy right now with a damn good price. I’m waiting for his counter price now . They are new aftermarket ones that installs with the clips like factory … most seem to be some overlay silicone glue on thing .. they look good, but !IMG_0738.jpegIMG_0739.jpegIMG_0740.jpeg
