Cheap interior surfaces again

2007 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT1 4dr Extended Cab 6.5 ft. SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)
I bought this 07 Silverado during the summer of 2007. Truck looked great with the z71, chrome, and desert brown metallic paint.
Truck has proven reliable. No issues with the power train. The seats are comfy, and we use it for long trips and moving with my job.
But, its not without issues. Had a water leak. Turned out to be the 3rd brake light. Stained the headliner and had to fight GM to fix. Has had a blown rear shock, annoying underhood vibration, and check engine light due to a crankshaft sensor connector loose (GM fixed all issues). Now the dash has cracked at 87,500 miles. GM knows its an issue (check youtube), but will not fix. Almost every dash cracks around the passenger airbag.
Seats are comfy. Truck rides and handles good. Factory tires lasted 65k. Mileage has been pretty good (18 mpg average). Dogs love the rear windows that roll down, and I still like that the rear doors flip 180.
Replace dash with one that will make it more than 5 years. Factory speakers won't last. Replaced mine within 4 years. They didn't blow, just stopped working. CD won't alway eject the first time. Fix the high frequency noise that happens when you use On-Star. I didn't renew because you could hear the high pitch noise when using it. Varies with engine RPM. Give the 4.8 the 6 speed trans. Engine lacks alot of power down low. 6 Speed would fix that easily.
