Great Dash Kit

Written By Greg, Indiana on Thursday, March 26, 2015

The instructions were not written well. It was not clear as to which tabs I should keep and which I should remove based on the instructions. i called Crutchfield and they made it clear to me. Once that issue was resolved, the installation was easy and everything worked perfectly. It allowed for a clean and beautiful installation of my new Clarion NX604 in a 2005 Chevy 2500HD.

Pros: Neat and clean look after installation, Supports the receiver securely.

Cons: Poor instructions

easy to install

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Worked like it should. Instructions are terrible, but using common sense you can see which tabs need to be kept for your particular install.

Pros: Works as it should

Cons: Terrible Instructions

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The GMK-422 dash kit I used it for a 2003 Chevrolet Silverado and it looks factory.

Pros: The looks of the dash kit is very good and a good fit.

Cons: To many other clips had to be broken off for it to fit.

instructions are horrible.

Written By Dennis, Austin TX on Sunday, March 01, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This works but the instructions are horrible and you need a hacksaw to cut all the tabs off. I'd recommend getting one that is designed to work with your vehicle not for all GM vehicles. It looks ok but man it seems flimsy.

Pros: It looks ok and fills the space. It allows my unit to connect up to existing mount....eventually.

Cons: Not well constucted, too many tabs to cut off. Need a hacksaw for the work. Instructions are terrible and doesn't tell you which tabs to cut. It's a light grade plastic And can break easily.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great kit that works well in my chevy and gives it a very stock look. Saying this the directions included are horrible and make no sense. Thankfully using common sense I was able to figure out which tabs to cut off and which to leave. Only reason I am giving it 5 stars is I am reviewing the product and outcome, not the instructions.

Pros: Looks sleek and works great

Cons: Horrible instructions as everyone has stated that

I loved that it was free with my purchase I put it together then instructions say to break off all tabs for a gmc yukon so I re read and looked and checked it out then broke off all the tabs then guess what it wouldn't work so pay close attention to which ones you break off because instructions ain't right I wound up buying one locally

Pros: Free

Cons: Bad instructions

Pros: Easy assembly, great fit.

Cons: Thin plastic, will bend very easy.

Pretty simple

Written By wvman, WV on Sunday, February 22, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

If you follow the directions and snip and cut carefully you'll be fine. Had to clip several of the side attachments off. That was done pretty simple with side cuts. If you don't follow directions you could cost yourself a new one.

Pros: simple

Cons: directions could be a bit clearer.

Fits Great

Written By Lee, Texas on Wednesday, January 28, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Bracket fit great. Agree with other reviewers. The instructions were terrible. In order not to cut too much, I just matched up the mounting tabs with the stock on. It appeared the instructions were saying cut them all off.

Pros: Great fit and free with the radio.

Cons: Horrible instructions.

Instuctions are terrible!

Written By Curt, Adel, Iowa on Monday, January 26, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The instructions are terrible!! They tell you to cut off tabs that shouldn't be cut off. I ended up going to Walmart and bought a Scosche kit that was almost identical and had very complete instructions. I am sure that this kit would have worked fine, but the directions were terrible and I ended up ruining the kit. Don't cut anything off until you look at it completely. It's free if you spend over $100 on a radio. That is the only thing good about it. If in doubt, go get the Scosche kit.

Pros: Free with a $100 radio

Cons: Instructions are too vague!

Written By Lee, Flowood ms on Wednesday, January 21, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It's a good kit but a little hard to read the instructions. Once I figured it out it worked good.

Pros: Nice fit

Cons: Instructions are not the greatest, with it being able to be used in so many applications I think it could have had clearer instructions.

Terrible Instructions

Written By Jason T, Georgia on Tuesday, January 20, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

For a 2004 Silverado. The included instructions were complete and utter non-sense as most other reviewers have expressed. Once I decided to just toss the instructions, figuring out what needed to be done wasn't too bad by just holding the brackets and trim up to the hole and mounting locations. I cut the tabs and smoothed them down all with a Dremel which was not difficult at all and made all clean & smooth cuts. 2 stars just because the brackets do what they need to do, but lost the rest of the stars because the instructions are absolutely worthless and buyers are better off without them; whoever wrote them should be ashamed of themselves. Also - the bolts included were very short, not long enough for the JVC receiver I attached the bracket to. I had to use my own bolts.

Pros: Side brackets mount to trim easily, mounts to receiver as it's supposed to (with my own screws, not those included), mounts to dash easily.

Cons: * Confusing instructions that did not describe which tabs to remove, and how to follow each vehicle model also confusing. Don't look at these instructions, just throw them away and hold the trim and brackets up to the mounting location to figure out which ones should be removed. * Bolts included were not long enough for any normal installation.

Trial and Error

Written By David S, Texas on Monday, January 19, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very confusing instructions. Had to attach and see what tabs needed to be removed by trial and error.

Pros: Fits

Cons: Instructions confusing

Um, nice instructions?

Written By GrantG, Tennessee on Sunday, January 18, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This was pretty ridiculous. The instructions didn't show what tabs to break off, it was kind of a free-for-all. I thought maybe the instructions were made in Asia, but American International is actually made in Canada. I expected a Canada manual to have clear pictures. You pretty much have to see where your unit screws in when you take the old one out to ensure you don't have to buy another plastic radio holder. Better instructions would work wonders.

Pros: 1. It had an extra plastic piece for a Caddy. 2. I was able to use common sense on installation.

Cons: Instructions - more detail.

Dash kit

Written By Louie, Knoxville, TN on Thursday, January 15, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Not the easiest piece of plastic I have ever worked with. Cuts had to be made based on the make/model of car. There is no easy way to make these cuts. A flimsy piece of plastic. My dad got it done, but has the tools and work bench - a vise etc.. If you are just sitting in your car trying to hold and cut this piece with a pocket knife, well the outcome may not be one you like. After all was said and done, it fit the stereo as it should, but this one piece doubled the entire installation process in regard to time spent on the project.

Pros: Fit.

Cons: Difficult directions to follow and difficulty in making cuts.

Works great, but the instructions are a joke.

Written By McGurdy, Tennessee on Tuesday, January 13, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Does its job well, but the instructions are unintelligible. Luckily it is easy to figure out what you need once you look at the original radio's setup.

Pros: Does what it should. Unnecessary clips snap off easily!

Cons: The instructions are garbage.

Written By DaneK, Colorado on Monday, January 12, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Looks good/does job when finally in but boy it can be a pain. Service tech said it was as simple as just bending back and froth to break tabs off. Did as I was instructed and I snapped it in half. Once I called again to tell that it was broken they were awesome and sent me another one for free on account of the bad advice I was given. just use an angle grinder or a dremel tool and you will be in business

Some assembly required :-)

Written By Nelson, Mason, oh on Monday, January 12, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Like other reviewers, I found the directions to be utterly confusing. The instructions clearly said to cut off all side tabs for my application, however my common sense looking at the open hole said that didn't seem right. I figured out what seemed right and then called tech support to confirm. Poor, poor, poor directions. And then after that, I had to cut off, file, and sand 8-10 tabs (extra steps because I'm a little OCD about things being done right)....not plug and play by any means.

Pros: Will fit anything from a 1929 Packard and later...ok, not literally

Cons: You are on your own to figure out how to use this kit....

Written By ScottS, Amarillo, TX on Thursday, January 01, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This sure is one adaptable dash kit! I would say too adaptable because it lead to a lot of ambiguity and complexity. Because the instruction manual was so vague, I cut off the wrong tabs and had to buy a new kit. If you use this kit, take your time and study how the tabs should fit your vehicle. Do not rely solely on the instruction manual!

Cons: The instruction manual, quite frankly, was of no use. It did not clearly demonstrate what tabs to keep and what tabs to remove for my vehicle. The tabs were insanely difficult to remove.

This dash kit makes for a very clean, easy install that looks completely professional.

Pros: Good fit and finish; made for a perfect finished product install. Crutchfield tech support was 100% a shining star for me when I wanted help to make sure I was doing things right.

Cons: Directions on which tabs to keep etc. are a bit weak. You have to use some mechanical common sense, which is tough for me- on the other hand, if I can do this, anyone can do it!

Too much cutting and customizing.

Written By DP, Longview, TX on Sunday, November 16, 2014

Dash Kit Works Great, Instructions Awful

Written By EricB, West Newton, MA on Wednesday, November 12, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This kit looks great once assembled and installed, and the plastic seems sturdy enough to handle the job long term. If these were the only things that were to be judged, this would be a 5-star review. The problem is that the directions that were included with the kit were awful and misleading. Perhaps someone noticed this, because the directions that are available for this same product on the Crutchfield website have been altered to reflect clearer instructions. But even the online instructions are a bit unclear. For example, you have to figure out for yourself what is the ISO trim ring (the ring that goes around the face of the head unit). Plus the directions don't really show all angles of the bracket, which would have been nicer.
I used this kit to install a new head unit in a 1997 Buick Skylark. Once I figured out what to do, cutting off all of the unneeded tabs was a fairly simple process. You can score and snap off tabs that you don't need using a sharp blade, a small hack saw, a Dremel-type tool, or whatever works for you. The cutting off part doesn't have to be pretty; everything except the front ISO trim ring will be hidden by the final install. After cutting off the unneeded tabs, snap the side brackets onto the ISO trim ring. Then attach to your head unit using screws.

Pros: Looks great! Plastic is sturdy. Was a perfect fit once all unneeded tabs were removed. Final install looks professional.

Cons: Printed directions were terrible. Directions available online were better.

Good Product, Horrible Instructions

Written By DaddioJH, Northport, Long Island, NY on Friday, November 07, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This works well. I used it to install a double din Jensen VX7020 navigation receiver in my 2004 Chevrolet Avalanche on the recommendation of Crutchfield. They were right on. However, the instructions were so bad about which plastic pieces to cut off I probably lost an hour talking to Crutchfield and experimenting by cutting one plastic piece at a time until it fit..

Pros: Fits like a glove.

Cons: Written instructions were terrible!

Written By E Harris, Denver, CO on Wednesday, October 22, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This kit tries to fit into too many applications. The instructions were hard to decipher for my vehicle and I ended up having to remove more tabs that the instructions told me too for my vehicle. I ended up figuring it out by doing multiple test fits under it went in right. Breaking off the extra tabs was not easy either, I ended up using a Dremel to be sure I got a clean cut and didn't break the kit. I also had to carve out a bit of plastic to fit the screws through to the receiver.

However, once I figured out what worked, the receiver was held in place securely into the kit and then the truck.

Pros: Decent final placement.

Cons: Difficult instructions. Hard to remove unneeded tabs.

Well, it worked in the end. Instructions were HORRIBLE. Very unclear on what tabs needed to be cut or not. Had to re-drill mounting holes to fit double DIN receiver mount holes. Very unclear on what pieces were needed for my vehicle. Pretty much made it up as I went.

Pros: Kind of worked, with modifications.

Works Just Fine, Once You Figure Out Your're Better Off Not Reading th

Written By k, Sacramento, CA on Friday, October 03, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The product itself worked just fine, once you figure it out. The reason I gave 3 Stars is simply because of the instructions. Turned what should have been a 1 hour deck install to 3 hours, just because you have no idea which section actually applies to your vehicle, and are paranoid you're going to clip the wrong tabs off. Obviously they are trying to make this product fit every vehicle manufactured since 1932, but the instructions don't live up to that goal - a blind monkey could have done a better job. "Cut all the tabs OFF". "No, don't cut all the tabs off". "Cut the tabs off the side brackets NOT shown above" - what?! Did the graphic artist take the day off when that section was written?

You're better off just looking at the bracket and face pieces, seeing what mounting holes your have on your dash, and then clipping off what doesn't belong.

Pros: Does what it supposed to do; deck doesn't rattle around.

Cons: Instructions are severely in need of re-writing, with graphics that more clearly show what tabs are to be cut. Or just make bracket kits for each Make of vehicle, with instructions that are clear, rather than trying to match every vehicle on the planet with one bracket kit.

Written By ShaneB, Missouri on Tuesday, September 09, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I wanted to give it 5 Stars but one of the side pieces wouldn't clip on properly and I have to ding the review for that. One side clipped on, but the other side wasn't molded properly and I couldn't get it to clip in place. I finally gave up and just put it in with it bulging a little. You can't see it once the dash is in place covering it and it looks really nice. It looks like a pro did the installation and I'm proud of how it all came out.

For free(ish) I really can't complain.

Pros: 1. It looks really nice once installed. 2. It mounted perfectly with no adjustment hassles at all. 3. The plastic is very sturdy.

Cons: It's hard to remove the unused mounting plates. Although that's a good thing, I kind of deformed the piece of plastic I needed when I cut the unused parts off. So when you do this, score it first with a Stanley knife on both sides then use some heavy wire cutters to cut along the score marks. That's what I did, or you could use a Dremel cutting tool.
