Best Truck Dash Covers

Dash covers are a great investment for any vehicle that experiences regular exposure to sunlight. Your Ford truck is a workhorse, so there hardly is a time where it isn’t in the sun. To help your dash last longer and protect it from harmful UV rays, as well as reduce glare, a custom dash cover should do the trick. To find the best cover for your needs, you’ll want to consider the materials, padding, and fit of your desired truck dash covers.


Custom dash covers come in a variety of materials. You can go with something soft that conforms to the curves of your dash or something harder to protect it from bumps and scrapes as well: 

  • Velour: This custom velour cover is soft to the touch and adds a touch of luxury to any rugged vehicle. Installs easily with Velcro.
  • Suede: A suede custom dash cover also adds softness and luxury with easy installation. The fabric is dyed in solution to prevent fading.
  • Carpet: The carpet dash cover offers plenty of protection, and some types may be machine washable to make cleaning a breeze.
  • Molded: A molded custom dash cover such as this DashTex option is made of hard material. It gives you more of a natural feel to your dash while protecting it from glare and sun damage. 


When selecting your dash cover, check to see if it has any extra padding. Not every cover comes with padding, but having it should extend the life of the product, helping you to get the most use out of it.


Your best option is to choose from dash covers that are custom made specifically for your Ford truck. There are universal covers available, but they are likely to not fit as well and may leave parts of your dash exposed. Remember to also pick up a custom windshield sunshade to further protect your dash when parking your truck outdoors.
