Is this an indication for a shitstorm that's about to head my way?
Possibly. But I also want to see what you are up too.

Some suggestions to make this a little easier.

1 Tell us what year Bronco you are driving so we don't have to guess.

2 When you say dash do you mean the whole dash or just trim/accent pieces.

3 You will probably get more accurate results if you measure your own existing dash that's installed on your truck.

4 what is your experience level?. Any pics of things you have crafted in wood?

A 1995 Eddie Bauer, Just trim and accent pieces as I'm not skilled enough to do a whole dash. I also wanted to replace the removable trim that you have to take off in order to remove the back top with a wood version.

If it's just accent pieces, remove the piece you are trying to replicate and trace it onto your wood. Cut and sand till it fits.

What wood working tools do you have?

Well I have a few sanding belts, an allsaw, benchsaw, and a few widdling tools. Nothing special but enough to get the job done right?
