I have a small tear in my dash pad. When searching for one on Ebay, I see some that say tan and some say mocha. Were there two different tans in 92-96 Broncos, F150s? (Or 97 3/4 and 1 tons)? Some pics the mocha looks darker, others it doesn't.

Yes, there were several tan shades offered during that time-frame. I've seen at least two different 'tans' in the salvage yard back when I was looking for a good replacement. I bought a really nice dark red one with the intent of painting it to match my interior but on my next trip to the U-Pull, there was a real nice one in the correct color.

Thanks. Sounds like buying online is a crap shoot. That tiny crack drives me crazy though.

I just wrapped mine in leather. Pretty easy to do, just a bit time consuming.
Were you able to find a color that matched I may give this a try but was wondering how smooth it could come out as it relates to the other dash pieces. The crack that drives me crazy is basically a Mercedes emblem, but about 1/8 to 1/4 of an inch total. Small, but it annoys me.

Maybe check out coverlay dash pad covers. Much more reasonable, half the labor and likely to help depending on where your crack is...

Think I have a tan dash pad also with a tiny crack. They are all the same for mocha 92-96. How bad is yours post a pic.
Here is a pic.

Here is a pic. It is pretty small. I have already done the carpet. Ordered seat covers from Richmond yesterday.

That is certainly the Mocha color.

5th gen Eddie Bauers did have two different interior colors. One was more of a yellowish tan or canvas color and the second is the sort of taupe brown with a touch of red undertone, like yours.

That being said ive only seen one EB bronco in the junkyards and it was with a mocha interior. I see the other tan in EB f150s quite often. Its closer to the 91 and prior EB color.

You can see the difference here between tan and mocha...

The later "tan" is just a bit darker than in the bullnose but its still a good comparison!
Thanks 😊 thought it was close enough to give dude an idea of what you were saying...

That looks great! Richmond upholstery offers a piece of leather that matches the seats that is precut for the dash pad, etc. . It is about the same price as a used one, if you can find a used one. I think I found a factory one that I plan on grabbing later today.
