    Check eBay once or twice a week. Something always comes up. I found mine last summer just by randomly checking.

    I found a great original used one many years ago and installed it but it fell apart as soon as I started touching it when removing which is why I went aftermarket. I had a good experience with my Dashes Direct gen 3 black dash pad and posted here and here. I can't speak to how well it will take a dye but FWIW I am happy with the fit, finish, and grain pattern now that it is installed. I paid $188 shipped from CJ Pony Parts who had DD ship it directly to me. (I was able to speak to Dave from DD in the process who confirmed at the time

    That's what I did. This one was $89 from CJ, I think they have gone up slightly.

    Yep, plastic cover. I figure for my budget build it would be fine.

    This is a Dashes Direct brand pad that I just bought from CJ Pony Parts. Fit is good to me. The core is plastic as best I can tell with metal tabs above the glovebox / passenger panel. The defrost area had indents for where to drill the holes for the screws. Pretty easy to install. The only issue I had was the gauge bezel rubs the dash pad in the upper corners making it harder to go on. Otherwise, no real drama putting it on or with the fit.
