Not so Great

Written By DeweyM, Henderson, TX on Tuesday, April 01, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Didn't get to use this kit. The primary component is fragile but not packaged so that it is protected. Mine arrived broken, so I bought a kit, locally, of lesser quality that I had to reengineered to make It work properly. This kit would have worked much better than the other one, if it had not been broken.
Pros:
This kit is pretty well designed to work well.
Cons:
Package by the manufacturer very poorly. The plastic bag does not protect the bulky, but fragile, main component from being broken during handling.

2001 F250

Written By Tom M, Silverado, CA on Thursday, February 20, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This adapter worked fine for installing an old Aiwa single DIN stereo I had into a 2001 F250. Just needed to cut off the Mustang tabs like the instructions said, and it snaps into the opening tightly. I put the stereo opening on the bottom because there is a bar in the dash to support the stereo. The other way it would have only been supported by this frame. Make sure you are ready to go with your wiring already done and clean the area around it ahead of time because it looks to me like once it is snapped in there is no way to get it back out without breaking the snaps. Fits tight and works fine. The black bezel that comes with it is a better fit than the one that came with the Aiwa so I used it, but you can take if off and use your own if it fits and/or looks better. I did not need any of the various other parts that came with it, just the frame and bezel.
Pros:
Nice tight fit.
Cons:
Had to cut off parts, not a big deal.

F-150 installation tips

Written By Tom, Louisiana on Sunday, February 02, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I'm going to attempt to give a few pointers to anyone who's installing this kit in an F-150. I drive a 2001 lariat supercrew so I can't speak for the older or newer models but if I'm not mistaken this should work on '99-'03 models. Quite simply you need to use the ISO installation method in the instructions rather than the DIN method. The DIN method uses the plastic sleeve to secure your cd player whereas the ISO method uses the plastic support brackets with self tapping screws. You will also need to break or cut off the 2 plastic tabs on the top of the installation kit. Also, when you use the ISO method there are 2 plastic side brackets and one smaller rear bracket that hold your CD player in place..you won't need the rear bracket. Only the 2 side ones. The F150 already has a metal rear bracket attached to the frame where your CD player slides in. I'm an ATV mechanic who does custom accessories including stereo systems but these are usually vehicle specific and I don't have much experience dealing with universal kits and I found the instructions for this one to be a bit lacking. This really was a simple install that took about an hour and a half and that includes the time it took me to figure out how to put together the kit for the ISO method. This may sound complicated but once you get the kit you'll see what I'm talking about and you only need a few basic tools. Over all I was pleased with the way it turned out but I'm giving it 4 stars because of the instructions.
Pros:
Looks good, easy to install once you figure out what method/parts to use
Cons:
Instructions were about as clear as mud in some areas and the illustrations weren't much help

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This dash kit works great but the side panels to mount the radio with I so screws had to be modified to correctly snap together with the main part. Maybe it was just a manufacturer mistake because the image doesn't show a small protruding tab on the top of each side panel. Overall the tabs were taken off and the kit snapped together properly and the radio fit perfectly.
Pros:
Sturdy

Had to moddity to work

I love that Pioneer gives you all of the stuff you need to install the unit yourself. This particular product I like because of the shelf you get to have under your face plate. I wired my USB port to come though to the shelf so I can attach my device and place it on the shelf, or feed the wire in so I don't have to see it.
Pros:
LOVE the extra shelf idea.

The kit ended up working out. I would say the directions were a bit vague. We had some trouble getting the unit in and then getting it fit in the factory slot, after a few tweaks we were able to get the kit and unit in the factory holding space secure, Once installed the kit looked great and works good.

Worked well but...

Written By E.Peterson, Tampa,FL. on Monday, December 16, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The kit covers a large variety of vehicles, so I cannot expect it to work perfectly on all of the. I was using it on a 2003 Mercury Grand Marquis. I like that I could install a single din radio in the place of the factory unit, and it added a storage pocket above the radio. I put the kit together and it was very easy. I installed the cage from the radio and then put the assembly into the dash. It did fit well but the little lock tabs on the sides did not lock the plastic mount into the dash securely. If you tried to move it at all, you can easily pop it loose. I ended up bending some of the side tabs on the cage out so they could help hold it in place. It seems to be secure enough as the hole in the dash is slightly angled back so the radio can't fall out on it's own. Overall it worked fine but I would have liked the kit to snap into the dash more securely.
Pros:
Easy to fit to a variety of different vehicles and it looks good.
Cons:
It did not lock into the dash securely on the 2003 Mercury Grand Marquis I was installing it in.

American Int. FMK-550 Dash Kit.

Written By Joseph J., Bushkill, PA on Sunday, December 15, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This dash kit required me to modify it by breaking off the top frame and notching a slot at the bottom for routing of rear USB port and microphone jack to front of head unit in order to access them. This kit does not fit the F-150 dashes of the late 1990's and up to 2003 model years without having to greatly modify it in order for it to fit.
Pros:
What pros, there are none!!
Cons:
There are two ways to mount the head unit onto this dash kit. The use of the metal sleeve can easily bend when you attempt to mount it onto the dash kit bracket and the two plastic side brackets (most secure of the two) won't allow you to be able to mount the dash kit in the F-150 dash opening. Modification is a pain in the butt without the worry of breaking the whole darn thing.

Pros:
none
Cons:
did not work on my 1999 town car

fits like a glove - a really tight one

It took some pushing and shoving but once I got it seated in the DIN space, it fits really well and is solidly in place in my 2000 Ford Windstar. The faceplate is super tight to get back on.
Pros:
Not too bad for free from Crutchfield. and it give me an extra slot for stuff
Cons:
the directions are pretty worthless. I got more value out of reading the user feedback

Kits make it easy.

I used to install car stereos in High School as a job. That was many years ago and we had to get creative to make things fit sometimes. These kits make it so much easier to install a car stereo that it's crazy not to get one. This it the second time I've used one and I will always buy them in the future. Thank you Crutchfield for the kits and the awesome tech support.
Pros:
So easy to install.
Cons:
None.

This product did exactly what it was supposed to. The directions were not very clear though. There are extra pieces for some applications, which is not explained.
Pros:
Fits Works
Cons:
Halfway decent directions

Best Out There

After trying a number of single DIN kits for my 1997 Ranger, I can honestly say that this one is the best around! Fits well, looks good, and the small pocket below the receiver is a plus. Love it!!! This kit fits a lot of Ford/Lincoln/Mercury vehicles, so I thought it would be a so-so install, at best. Glad to be proven wrong on this one.
Pros:
everything. I'd give this kit 6 stars if I could.
Cons:
none

Works Great

Written By Skunkere, East Lansing, MI on Sunday, September 15, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Fit in without a problem. Online warning that a portion of the dash would have to be removed was incorrect. The old radio will still go right back in.
Pros:
Has a pocket that is great for the MP3 player and cell phone.
Cons:
Few directions on how to remove necessary parts to fit the new radio. Instructions tell you to mount the rear support to the receiver and then insert the entire unit in the car. If you do this you will not be able to remove the receiver.
