One of the things I haven't seen in a junkyard in the last 4 years or so is a 1998 Intrepid.

Why does this matter? Because the 1998 Intrepid is the only Intrepid that came with this dash bezel:

See the little pocket above where it says Dodge?
It was a one year only bezel, and I'd like another one for my stash.
It should be in any 1998 Intrepid, SE or ES.
1999-2004 had a smooth bezel. Supposedly some early 1999s came with the pockets too, I don't believe I've ever seen one.

Let me know if anyone sees one out there.
It would be a backup part, so I'm not looking to spend a lot, but I am interested.

Thanks!

You realize that a 1998 dash will be agate in color versus the dark slate in the later years.

The dash bezel is black in color in all Intrepids no matter the year.

It is a separate bezel that never received the interior color.

I am speaking about the piece immediately above the radio trim which also surrounds the gauges and has the center vents and driver's vent in it.

You learn something new every day. I owned a 98 Intrepid when they first came out as well as my current 2003 Intrepid since it was new. I never realized that the 98 had the trays built in and I never realized that the whole gauge cluster bezel extended that far across the dash. I guess I never had that piece out and always thought it was part of the dash like in the 300m. I'll keep an eye out for one. There seems to be a lot of Intrepids in the yards around here lately.

Thanks, John, I appreciate it.

The most recent Intrepid I've found at any yard near me was a 2000 ES. I haven't seen a 1998 in at least 4 years.

Somewhat good news. One of the yards shows a 98 Intrepid 3.2 as "not in".... Usually means they have it but is not out in the yard yet.

Finally got the 98 in, saw it this weekend, but bezel was pulled and broken on passenger side. Very very lh slim pickings at the yards lately.

Alex - and all - John found me one a couple of weeks ago and is generous enough to bring it to Carlisle for me.

I am all set since he found me one and will close this thread now.
