I am seeing a lot of topics referencing cracked dashes on 2007-2013 1500's.
Attached photos are from my 2011 1500slt.
If you have similar cracks please reply

I have one small crack at the defroster vent. I'm sure it will spread but not to bad as of now.

You should get a lot of responses from people with cracks from the airbag cover to the top edge just like yours.
If you do some research on past threads and posts, you will see a lot of similar problems. I heard they did some modifications in the last year or two of the 2007-2013 trucks and reinforced the problem areas. You will probably also notice that the majority of owners with those kinds of cracks are predominately from the southern sun belt. Good luck.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, it is an electrical problem

My 2013 Silverado has a cracked dash at passenger side airbag, 35K Miles. There is a whole FB page just for this.

That facebook group is one of the funniest things I have seen.
Im on a never ending quest to gather up enough pop cans so I can buy a nice extended cab or crew cab, so I don't have to hide my head when im driving this strippy standard cab of mine. So people don't have to feel sorry for me.
