Metra DP-6551 Dash Panel Kit: Fits 1998-2002 Dodge Ram

DP-6551

Dodge Ram Dash Panel 1998-2001

UPC 086429415915

This replacement dashboard panel is engineered to help you install an aftermarket 4” tall (Double-DIN) radio so that you can upgrade the stereo much easier. Since the original dashboard on these older models cannot fit a larger radio, this replacement panel allows you to upgrade to a bigger, modern radio without complex or labor-intensive custom fabrication. It is custom textured to match the original look and feel of the vehicle’s dashboard. Installing an aftermarket radio can upgrade the sound quality and provide additional features the original factory radio couldn’t offer but requires this dash panel to make it fit.

This will not fit 1998 models with a single knob headlamp switch or 12volt power in the upper right corner of the dashboard. See fitment details on the vehicle applications tab.
