Dash Pad replacement

I am looking to replace that thin piece of dash that runs from the radio to the passenger side of the truck. I have checked the local yards but they are all too faded or cracked up. I also cannot find it in LMC truck, only a dash cover that they say snaps in right over the entire dash. It does not sound like it would fit very well. Has anyone installed one of these? If so, how was the fit and finish?

the one that snaps over the whole thing is a piece of cloth kinda like your carpet that they sell, i think its ugly as crap tho, but if you look on ebay there is a bunch of them but kinda pricey for that rubber thing that goes half way across

I need to replace this same dash pad as well. I just bought my F250 so I'm new to this "world". How, exactly is this piece removed? Does the entire dash have to come out just to get this piece off that runs from the radio over to the passenger side?

You can remove it by pulling out the stereo and glove box....then you'll have access to all the nuts with a small wrench. Pretty easy.

Thanks pmasterson. Haven't removed one of these factory stereo's. I assume you use the 2 little drilled holes on each side of the unit to poke something in and it releases the unit from the dash?
