The basic stuff that is decent runs us, contractors price, like 1.80 per sq. ft.

The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!

Yeah, no clue honestly... I've been using the window shade so I figure my dash for the most part is covered anyways. Plus I need to get a dash cover to hid the cracks that are in the 22y/o dash as is. I was going to swap dashes and started to pull the one out whitey before I disposed of it but the headache of getting it out, let alone back into red and having everything still fit and function just wasn't worth it. A dash cover will fix my cracks by hiding them! LOL

Yeah, overall it looked clean for sure. Suspension isn't setup to truly run hard but it's got a good base as a fun all around ride imo...

It is the UV light. That is why dashboards crack even where the heat doesn't get that bad. Also the reason that if you continually treat a dash with armor-all it will last longer. The armor-all doesn't do **** for how hot the dash gets but it does reflect the UV light.

We'll repair our broken one and then likely sell off that set and pickup another brand new set so we'll at least have 2 pairs to rotate thru since it's not like we're running an aggressive race schedule and have lots of times between races to have them serviced.

Come get a ride in it sometime and see the abuse it gets put thru and it'll make more sense. LOL I really think most people are shocked when they see how punished the truck gets. The rides I've given everyone so far, still aren't what I was driving pace wise on race day and I'm sure everyone on here that has ridden in it will vouch that it's not a nice smooth gracious sunday cruise. It's actually kinda violent in a way.

I may be taking it out for a quick run mid-late July once I have it back together. Was going to keep it low key and probably just be whoever I have pull it out and me. Would like a 3rd person though in case something breaks so we're not hiking in 100+ temps. Will make sure to take that 3rd person for at least a quick run too if they wanted. I'm only looking to put like 20-30 miles on the truck in the heat to make sure everything looks and works fine.
Dude, you have an expensive hobby. But dang it's cool!! I totally believe you about the leafs and the overall wear and tear those rigs get in just one quick run, I was shocked when I learned leafs were used but it makes complete sense when you think about it.

The dash in my ZJ was religiously coated with armor all and still looks brand new, and it's a 97. Never had a dash cover either.
