There is a company called coverlay that sells a fitted cover for your dash. You can go to there website and search your vehicle to find the right one and the right color.
Here is the info from there website:

98-01 Dodge Ram Pickup Dash Cover 22-802L

Fits:
98-01 Ram 1500 (with airbag)
98-02 Ram 2500, 3500

This dash cover is custom formed to the exact shape of your orginal dash. It is installed over top of the orginal dash, and is held in place with silicone adhesive (provided). The installtion can usually be completed in 30 minutes or less. No special tools are required. No original parts need be removed. Dash covers can be purchased in several standard colors.

Sun has cracked the dashboard partitions - looking for replacements


There are vehicle upholsters that have the ways and means of redoing the dash of most vehicles. Or go to the wreckers and get one from there. A good investment when you have had it replaced is a dash mat to stop the sun damage.

My 1996 dodge neon has a crack in the dash by the defrost vent. is there a simple fix?


This depends on the type of crack ... if it is from the sun drying out the material and shrinking it a quick-fix will probably suffer the same fate and look worse when it happens. If the crack is from abuse (like when I threw a bunch of 2x4 lumber on mine and caused a crack) then you might be able to find some repair goo for it -- ask at an auto-parts store and they might have it ("repair goo" is not the real name of the material, but I don't know the real name off hand). Make sure you let the person who is helping you know whether your dash is real leather or synthetic material as the type of repair fluid used will vary with color and type of material to be repaired.
If you have a real-leather dash you might even be able to go to a leather-goods store and find a repair fluid there -- it would be basically the same as fixing a tear in a leather jacket. I know that the repair fluid exists, but I do not know the name ... just that I have seen it advertised on late-night television.
If you can't find a repair fluid that will work with the material that your dash is made from, or if your crack is caused by sun-aging of the material, you might have to replace the piece of the dash panel that is cracked to get rid of the damage. Just bare in mind that if your dash is sun-faded it will be very difficult to match the exact color with a replacement .. and you might be more annoyed with the color difference than you were with the crack.

How to fix a peeling dashboard in my 2003 yukon xl?


Peeling dashboard? I take it that its from the sun fading it and its now dryed up and peeling? Not a whole lot to do for this problem. One would be to buy a very inexpensive dash cover(kind of like a carpet for the dash) and the other would be replacing the dash(very expensive) They do sell dash repair kits, although I have never heard of much success with these paste mix kits.

Dim Dashboard read


On most vehicles you have a dimmer switch ( not talking about headlights) which you can adjust how bright or how dim the dashboard lights are because some people want them bright and others prefer dim either check your owners manual or check all around for it from drivers seat ( within drivers reach) when you find it if you can't adjust it then you want to consider replacing dash lights or switch.
