Cons: None

Not too happy, had to do lots of trimming

Drew from Owatonna, MN on 9/6/2016

2002 Ford F-150
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This was a challenge. Not all the pieces fit right, had to do lots of trimming to parts I would expect to work without doing that. Felt like it was going to break with the force I had to use to get everything to fit. And after I got the radio installed in my truck, this dash kit doesn't fit directly into the existing radio housing perfectly, so my radio trim bezel for my truck didn't fit on my dash correctly. I had to take a dremmel to my dash piece so it would go back to where it was supposed to. With all that said, it isn't a bad dash kit, but I hope there are better ones. No one would be able to tell I had issues just by looking at it. so it gets a 3.

Pros: radio fits

Cons: directions were vague lots of trimming to fit cheap tabs broke upon normal installation

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I used the side bracket mounts. The unit holds the receiver securely and fits the dash well. Only problem was that it was difficult to snap the side brackets into place without breaking a small retaining tab.

Pros: secure mounting and good fit

Cons: assembly of mounting bracket could be easier

Perfect for the 2nd time

Christopher from Hollywood, FL on 8/22/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This dash insert fit nicely, a bit of bending to actually snap it in place. But it fit and even allowed me to reuse the same grounding point. Easy to assemble a bit of trimming needed because snap positons were not fully cleared.

Pros: Easy to use, inexpensive for the amount of beauty, quick shipping, and easy full instructions that exact'y fit the dash inserts, rugged design.

Cons: Needed a bit of forcing but eventually snapped into place perfectly, glad it was built well if not might of snapped the housing pushing it together, some of the snap points weren't fully cleared nothing a razorblade cou'dnt clean up.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Nice kit. Had way too many parts and no info regarding the Ford Sport Trac. Luckily, with all the extra parts, I was able to fashion a mount that worked fine for the Sport Trac.

Pros: Obviously useful for a variety of vehicles, even those not covered in the instructions.

Cons: My specific vehicle wasn't included, so I had to improvise. Some of the plastic parts are a bit tough to mate together without fear of breaking something.

Fit perfectly and worked perfectly, but the instructions left a lot to be desired. It's not rocket science but still would be nice for things to be a bit more clear, especially with all of the "extra parts" that may or may not be necessary for your vehicle.

Pros: Good fit

American International FMK-550 Dash Kit

Michael B from St. John, Virgin Islands on 7/8/2016

2002 Ford Explorer
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very confusing instructions. Finally figured out that I only really needed the outer sleeve, that accepted the installation sleeve, not the various side pieces, rear support, etc. Took hours trying to figure all this out, and if you can put the side pieces in place by following the instructions, you get the prize. Once I found that I only needed the mounting sleeve, all I had to do was figure out that I needed to pry the trim ring off the Pioneer stereo, install it in the sleeve, and replace the trim ring. There was a trim ring included, a replacement, but it did not fit my application. Fortunately the old one fit. The whole experience was like that. Things did wind up fitting, working, doing the job, but he instructions need a lot of work.

Pros: Did the job.

Cons: Took a lot of head scratching to get there.

Pioneer Media Player install for Mazda B3000

Tim D. from Fredericksburg, VA. on 6/23/2016

2004 Mazda B Series
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Real easy installation process using this kit. The Pioneer media player was very lightweight and fit perfectly into the frame kit. No hassles.

Pros: Easy of application. Easy to understand manual. Fits securely in dash and holds unit tightly..

Cons: With the Mazda you need to cut off the two top mounting tabs ( not needed for this application). Be careful when doing so to not scratch the outer edge of the remaining frame piece. A dremel works very well for cutting the tabs.

Crutchfield needs to drop this vendor. Cheap junk.

Ron B. from Memphis, TN on 6/22/2016

2001 Ford Ranger
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This will never make it to the web page, but I am so disappointed in Crutchfield in their choice of "dash installation kit" supplier. The stuff is junk, badly explained and leaves me with a queasy feeling as to how secure my unit is in dash. I purchased a Kenwood CD player (which I am totally satisfied with) but the "free" custom installation kit was worth what I paid for. Follow the instructions (right) could not get the unit to slide into the kit pocket; finally called Crutchfield tech support (great service) and was prepared for a long discussion but after about 30 seconds of explaining my problem , the tech guy laughed "yeah they have a lot of calls on this, you need to pop the face plate off". Well it was not mentioned in the instructions and looking at it, it did not seen that it pops off. But it did. I finally got the unit inside and the only security it has is the din sleeve of the Kenwood. Here's my point charge me for a well made installation kit. The wiring harness and Posi connectors were great, but this cheap floppy dash kit ruined the whole purchase satisfaction for me.

Pros: Free

Cons: Cheaply made, incomplete installation instructions and sloppy fit.

Easy work

Easy Installation...A Little Too Easy?

Pros: Instructions were very clear and covered a variety of installations. Appearance is of good quality.

Cons: The plastic this is made of is a little soft. The clips that should hold this in place will not prevent or slow down anyone just slipping it out. There is no back bracing for my installation.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Even after making a call to customer service I was not impressed with this dash kit it is perfect for a full-size stereo single Din but not good for a media player as there is no way to hook up the back support bracket customer service said you don't need the bracket but without it the stereo shakes up-and-down and vibrates while driving down the road also the surround ring was pretty attached when I got my kit and I had to snap it off in order to install the sleeve which damage the tabs on it and I had to glue it before I installed it please note this is The first time I have used a dash kit that wasn't perfect:(

Pros:

Cons: Not really designed for a media player install

Looks nice in my 2000 F350 truck. No issues installing, just works well. One note, it's held in by plastic clips, so once you install the adapter, it is quite difficult to remove and if you do so you could break some of the plastic clips unless you are very careful.

Pros:

Cons: Not easy to remove should you need to.

Came free with the purchase of the stereo. Very plain. If I was doing a high end install I would not use it. I get the sense they were just trying to cover too many years of cars and stereos with the one kit.

Cons: Cheap

Jake from California on 3/31/2016

2003 Ford Ranger
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The single din is pretty easy to use but it does take some time to figure it out. The instructions are pretty vague and do not really explain what you are doing. It is just a few photos that you have to figure out. It did not take too long but, for first time users, the intructions could be a little better. I had to call Crutchfield once for a part on the back that I found out I did not need. The instructions said nothing about how to mount it or if I even needed that part. Crutchfield told me I did not need the small triangle piece

Pros: Works great

Cons: Instructions are about as useful as a bag of rocks.

Rusty from salt lake city, UT on 2/20/2016

2003 Ford Explorer Sport
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This kit works correctly and fits like a dream however; the reason for the four star and not five is because the instructions are not accurate for the model of car. The instructions said I should leave the tabs on and might have to use spacers. This was incorrect. I needed to remove the tabs or it wouldn't fit at all. Not a big issue but it did leave me stumped for about 10 minuets.

Pros: Fits like it should. Quick to install once you know what you're doing.

Cons: Instructions are not accurate.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The kit didn't line up with any mounting points in my dashboard, so it just sits there.

Pros: The radio can slide out of the dashboard without unscrewing anything.

Cons: The radio can slide out of the dashboard without unscrewing anything. Also the pocket is barely tall enough for a phone. Make sure the audio out cable is plugged in securely because you'll be yanking on it to retrieve your phone.

2003 Ford F-250 Super Duty
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a great kit that has almost everything you need with exception of experience using it. Part of the instructions are incomplete for some installations and the back support does not work well because it interferes with the stereo. The easy fix for the back support is using the existing one from the radio you are replacing if that is what you're doing.

Pros: Parts to allow almost any installation configuration

Cons: Inadequate instructions. Fitting parts and some installation details are missing.

Perfect fit into a 1999 Ford Explorer. Assembly of the side brackets was tricky, and the instructions were no help at all, but when all was done, it was solid and fit.

Pros: Great fit & Finish

Cons: Tricky to assemble the side brackets - they are plastic, and will break if forced, yet pressure must be applied to get them to snap into place. The instructions gave no info how to do this - had to guess from the pictures (good thing I've assembled a bunch of model cars).

As always, these dash install kits are great! I've installed one on my dad's F250, one just recently on my F350 and will be installing one soon in my wife's F250. VERY easy to install comes with instructions if needed for your first time installing the kit. On a difficulty scale of 1-10 it's a 0.01. I will only buy from Crutchfield, have been a long time customer and still coming back.

Pros: VERY quick and easy to install, comes with all parts necessary to install.

Cons: None!

Huck from New Mexico on 9/27/2015

2004 Ford Excursion
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I installed this in a 2004 Ford Excursion. The dashboard trim piece is held in place by 2 screws above the factory radio and a bunch of spring clips. This is held in by 6 spring clips That Can Only Be Released From The Back. So if you install this with the 2 screws in place, there is no way to remove either the trim panel or the radio without breaking something. After install, I realized the best install is probably to put the storage area above the aftermarket radio and drill access holes for the dash screws, which can then be accessed with an offset screwdriver.

Pros: Fits well.

Cons: Instructions/warnings/options incomplete.

This unit worked in my 2008 Ford Ranger perfectly. I've read other reviews that claim it "didn't fit" their Ranger, and that it was "wobbly" after installation. It says on the FIRST PAGE of the instructions for this that you have to file down a couple plastic fit nubs that are required for other model cars in order to use this unit in a Ford Ranger. It took about 1 minute to file them off and it installed with no wobble. READ THE DIRECTIONS, PEOPLE!

Not a good match for a Pioneer head in a Ford Escape

Motoguy from Blaine, WA on 9/16/2015

2007 Ford Escape
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I've installed 6 Pioneer receivers in various of our family's cars, all bought from Crutchfield and all installed using the supplied installation kits. This is the first one I've had a problem with . The (heavy) Ford factory CD unit is supported at its lower edge by a nylon "slider" that rides on a "track" in the dash. This mounting kit includes a piece that should provide this function BUT it cannot be fitted to Pioneer head unit I bought (there is no place on the Pioneer to attach it). It took me a few hours of "chair and stare" to figure out how to re-purpose the factory support for use with the new Pioneer unit. Very unlike Crutchfield-supplied install kits to leave me in a bind like this. It all works fine now but the delay and fiddly work involved was annoying.

Pros: Very complete kit. Thorough, well-written instructions

Cons: Critical rear support as supplied could not be used with the Pioneer head unit I bought.

Install Kit pretty good

how crazy excited can you get about an install kit. It worked pretty good, we had a few problems getting it in right but eventually figured it out. not the best directions.

Pros: it fit

Cons: it took several tries to get it in correctly, and we had to "rig" it behind the dash

Well, it worked

Vash744 from Ohio on 9/8/2015

2000 Ford Ranger
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The instructions are missing a few of the finer details. You can figure it out by trial and error however. Installation was for an early 2000 Ford Ranger.

Pros: Pretty cheap considering most kits go for $15+. Matched my radio and dash pretty well.

Cons: Some of the plastic tabs that is supposed to hold the radio in the dash broke off before I could get it into the dash, making it useless for actually keeping the radio in the dash. Cheap plastic or maybe due to being made to fit multiple vehicles, who knows. Had to use the mounting sleeve on the radio to keep the radio in the dash.

Since the old kit somehow broke and I needed to replace the it, I was glad that there was still a few around. Did a reinstall with the new kit and it fit like a glove, with the helper bracket that I should have used to help the back of the radio be supported and slide on the factory rail.

Pros: fits in the same opening as the old one.

Cons: Doesn't fit the dash contour, but it does fit. instructions are a bit confusing as to break off one of the tabs. I think that it would make it weaker as to staying in the dash.

Craig from MN on 6/14/2015

2002 Ford Ranger
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I gave it 4 stars because in the end it generally worked, looks fine in place in the dash and was FREE with my order. I didn't give it 5 stars because in my application (2002 Ford Ranger) the built in cubby slot is useless as anything you put in it will fly right back out the moment you accelerate forward. Also, I never was able to get it to fully latch into place in the dash even after removing the "nubs". That said, it solidly stays in place even while driving faster than normal over extremely rough terrain (plowed field, washboard surface gravel roads with potholes,...). So all in all I'm not really complaining even with its shortcomings.

Pros: As already mentioned.

Cons: As already mentioned.

Overall good quality. I would have given 5 stars except I was a little annoyed that it was not a complete kit. For my vehicle the instructions say to use a piece of backstrap to secure the head unit. Like I should just have a piece lying around... Maybe a professional install shop would, not the average DIY consumer.

Pros: Fit nicely and looks good.

Cons: Missing back-strap, so the unit is loose until you can get some.

1997 Ford Crown Victoria
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This adaptor plate works... I am simply glad they still had this for such an old car as mine. It not perfect and you need to fiddle with it a bit but it simply does the job of adapting the newer radios to these old ford style 2 din openings.

Pros: I was able to put in the radio I wanted. Very cheap in cost.

Cons: Its not a perfect fit as it uses simple plastic molded clips along the edge to hold it into the original opening. Some clips would not grab leaving the adaptor plate moveable. I found that I was able to push down more of the din sleeve tabs for the radio itself and they grabbed onto the original opening in the spots that needed to be secured.

Fits like a glove

PZ from New York on 4/23/2015

2010 Ford Ranger
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The kit is not really compatible with a 2010 ford ranger truck dash. The instructions were completely wrong and the soft plastic prongs broke as I followed the directions to install. The plastic side pieces wouldn't fit, and the metal sleeve did not have bendable prongs in the right places to secure it to the plastic frame. The cheap plastic prongs broke on the main frame. .A call to tech support informed me to install it completely backwards from the printed instructions. I did, but the install is not secure. This is a truck, and it needs a positive attachment, not ill fitting plastic prongs.

Pros: It's black.

Cons: Does not hold radio in dash. Install instructions completely wrong for the ranger.

Cheap plastic. Had to make a small cut to get it to fit. Snaps into place, but the side clips are small and don't really hold all that great. The rear support sticks up into where the radio goes, so its either cut it off or leave it off. The small little cubby space just looks like a dust collector.

Pros: It works, sort of.

Cons: If there was an alternative I'd buy it.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This installation bezel does fit (Ranger pickup) very nicely, looks great. The actual final push in of the unit to clip it in took much more force that I thought. It just wouldn't clip in the opening with a normal push. I finally pushed really hard, thinking I would break it, and it finally clipped in place. Once that was done it looked great. I wasn't sure how many of the nubs to grind off for the Ranger pickup, there were a few more nubs than shown on the diagram. The bezel had a removable faceplate that wasn't addressed in the instructions. My Sony radio bezel was used instead, but either would have worked.

Pros: Converts double din to single din. Fits well.

Cons: Instructions a bit lacking, but good enough to get through it.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Directions were OK - could have been clearer. Fit nicely after I removed my old radio. Would have liked for it to have been constructed of a bit heavier thickness plastic as I was afraid I might break it during installation.

Pros: Good price Fit well

Cons: Bit on the flimsy side Instructions could have been better

Perfect Fit and Great Service
