this may be a stupid question but i blew a front speaker on my 88 1500. Do i have to remove the complete cover up there or are the speaker covers snap in? does that make any sense?

The whole dash/instruments over has to come off. Mirrors, ignition cover first and then loosen up the windshield.

It can be done without removing your windshield and radio top cover...just have to be careful and go easy. Hardest part is removing the louvers on the dash cover. Then the speakers are accessable. You might just want to consider changing lights in the speedo/tach to LED's since you have it torn apart! don't want to have to do it again!

This whole write-up is great! We should gather up all this thread, and related pics, and put it all in the tips section. (maybe already done?) Anyway, nice work you guys! And thanks for the time spent!! The only LED's I have installed, are the right and left headlamps on either side of the main headlight. The ones I bought from Flea-Bay, were about 3/32" too long, and they get hot enough to melt the little hexagon refractor!!! I caught it before it destroyed the one on the left side, but it would have melted beyond use if I hadn't. I didn't realize how hot they can get!!!! jimsjinx

My led in my dash do not get hot. You can remove the film on the regular stock bulbs for the dash clusterdo, but y not use blue or whatever color u want led's which will last longer too...Jimsjinx..I also bad that issue with 13led bulbs for those running lights, I switched em down to a 5led bulb and no heat issues at all that way...
