Ideas for an updated Defender dash

I'm exploring some options for an updated dash set up to replace the old 110 defender dash on my truck. I'd consider buying a new dash that is the same as the original but I don't know if that's possible to find a new one or one that is in great/uncracked/not fucked up condition. Any leads on an original dash would be helpful.

Also, I'm hoping some of you guys can share some pics of your dash set ups to show some options for a potential change. I like the looks of the TDCI dash but also realize that is a bigger project in getting the wiring harness, etc, etc..... That would be nice but if I'm sticking with the original set up other ideas are appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

This doesn't seem like too bad a deal especially since it's in Canadian dollars. I've dealt with the seller before and he's a good guy. http://m.kijiji.ca/carrosserie/markh...=1442609857497

Search for "Netjaws", and don't do that.

What exactly is wrong with your old dash? If you are willing to fork over the cash you there are new off the shelf dashes out there.

My dash has a bunch of slices and some gashes in it. I didn't realize there were new dashes out there. Hence this thread I started.
If I'm pulling all my electrical out and updating it as well as swapping bulkhead with a freshy then a new or much better dash than mine is in order.
I also know there are some cool dash set ups I've seen around so I'm looking for ideas.
Like I said, TDCi dash is sweet but not sure how adventurous that would be to swap for my original dash.

Takes a little bit of work but if you wanted to you could just recover your old dash after stripping off the old cover using a heat gun. Someone did that either on this forum or another and had really good results.

New genuine dash pads are like ~$210 shipped (depending on shipping costs) from Land Rover Merriam Parts.
