In-dash Receiver Kit

Written By Tom F, Yuma, AZ on Sunday, April 27, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I have installed radios before, about 30 years ago, with this kit and the directions I placed it in the dash and when I installed the face plate it looked like it came from the factory.
Pros:
The directions were easy to follow. Looked professional when I finished and fit just as advertised. Took about 1 hour to replace the radio system I had in the dash.
Cons:
None

There are so many options included in this kit, it might take a bit of time to figure out what you need to fit your ride. Once I did, though, it fit perfectly.

Does exactly what they intend: allows flexibility in chosing a replacement radio. Fits very well. Blends well with the dash, easy solution for a retrofit.

Made all the difference in the world

Worth the few extra dollars to your installation look complete
Pros:
This kit made all the difference in the installation -- I remember back-in-the-day when you just had to make your after-market system fit the best way you could. This kit made the job look professional.
Cons:
Be sure you read the directions carefully. You may have to remove a plastic tab or two to make it fit.

Good product that came included with my order. Directions and part marking very vague and hard to use. Figured it out, but took too long.
Pros:
Good product. Right price.
Cons:
Difficult to use. Directions are vague and parts are not well marked. Would have been nice if Crutchfield opened the bag and set me up with parts needed already marked and parts not needed discarded?

Not needed for 2000 Nissan Frontier

Written By Mark F, Erie, PA on Saturday, November 30, 2013
 
This came with the wiring harness and JVC KD-X250BT I ordered. Luckily I did some extra research and found out that the OEM hardware was all that was needed, and would be easier to use, and look better, than using this kit. Now my new stereo is installed with a perfect fit/look, and this item ended up in the trash. I will note that the preceding is true for factory radios that are single DIN. If you have a double DIN you need to replace you will either need to find the factory parts (pocket and trim) for a single DIN, or use this kit. This kit is probably the less expensive way to go, but getting the OEM parts will probably be easier and look better.
Pros:
None. I didn't need or use this.
Cons:
OEM mounting hardware is actually better for replacing a single DIN stereo in a 2000 Nissan Frontier (and the 2000 Xterra too).

The single DIN kit did not fit my 2003 Xterra, the alignments holes did not match up.
Pros:

Nissan Dash Kit

Written By Billy, Selma, TX on Sunday, November 25, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Fits great. You are required to remove all the tabs, except the ones for your vehicle. Two of the tabs did not break off quite enough, and were in the way. No problem, got out my solder iron and melted the corners off like hot butter.
Pros:
Once finished, it was a perfect fit.
Cons:
Plastic is thicker than factory metal frame making it a little wider; it was a tight fit going in, but it went.

OK

Written By DavidR, Van Buren, AR on Sunday, August 26, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Cheap and you have to do a lot of cutting to make it fit. This makes it versitle but if you make a mistake and cut it wrong you are sunk. Thankfully their instructions on cutting it are fairly clear and that helps you get it right. I still had to make some small adjustments with a drimmel tool to make it fit. Without this however you would be stuck trying to make adaptor pieces yourself.
Pros:
Gets the job done.
Cons:
Won't fit perfectly but lots better than making your own adaptor pieces.

Not Appropriate for Nissan Pathfinder

Written By FT, Connecticut on Thursday, August 23, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I gave this one star because it probably is possible to get a 1U head unit to stay in the dash of 96 to 04 Pathfinder with this kit, but I would not recommend it. I gave it a good try, but after half an hour I decided that it was unacceptable due to poor design and that I needed a different installation strategy. I ultimately purchased a Scosche "Replacement 1U Nissan Pocket" from a different Vendor and reused the Nissan OEM steel brackets and ended up with a very nice professional looking installation in my 2003 Pathfinder.
Pros:
It was free with the order for a 1U head unit. I would have been really upset if I had paid good money for this.
Cons:
Set up for 96 to 04 Pathfinder is very flimsy and does not provide solid support. Even when installed per instructions there are very noticable gaps between the head unit and the pocket to the OEM center console bezel. Also the kit instructions do not mention that by using these plastic mounts you will loose chassis ground, so if you end up using this kit you should run an independant ground wire from the head unit to the vehicle frame.

Right price, it was free.

Written By jesi, falmouth, va on Sunday, July 15, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Crutchfield gave me the kit when I bought my unit. It was nice of them so can't complain. It did fit nicely but needed modification. Had to remove some tabs and drill a hole for a small knob in the dash. The original mounting had the hole already.
Pros:
Fit nicely and looks fine. Nice space below the top din.
Cons:
Cheaply made. Doesn't set in far enough for my car so the dash panel doesn't lie as flat as it once did but you would never notice it unless you are chcking and looking for fit. It is so cheap that the price seems way out of line. You couldn't buy a better one anywhere. You couldn't by the same one for a lot less so if you need the cheap thing best to get it from Crutchfield where they give it to you with your order so you don't have to pay for cheap plastic.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Did not fit at all in a 2001 Nissan Frontier; the upper edge overlapped the non-removable vehicle dash with no way to correct it short of (possibly) sawing a large piece of the mount off which would have looked terrible. I ended up reusing the existing mount from the factory receiver without any problems.

easy install- 00 Xterra

Written By Paul, Va on Wednesday, April 04, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Crutchfield could not have made this job any easier. Just follow the instructions, and you will have an install that looks like it came from the factory. The install kit, which is made for numerous Nissan's, has different parts that are clearly marked to let you choose the ones that you need for your particular vehicle. I purchased a Dual single DIN HD CD/Receiver, wiring kit and dash install kit for my 2000 Xterra. The time from opening the box to being complete with the install was just over an hour, and that was really taking my time. The instructions were so simple and easy to understand, I could have probably handed the job off to my 10 year old. Crutchfield is that on-point. The finished install looks like it was done by a professional, and the install kit is constructed of well made, well fitting materials. No trimming, adjusting, or modifying of my vehicle was necessary. It all just bolted in, just as advertised. I would and will highly recommend Crutchfield to my friends.
Pros:
Solid construction of the install kit, well written instructions, and all necessary parts to complete the job.
Cons:
None!

2000 Frontier 4 door - tight fit

Written By A. Sherman, Illinois on Monday, April 02, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
dash kit was just slightly too big. I was able to pull the dash opening apart and cram it into place, but this caused the plastic to warp slightly, making it look cheap. My guess is that the tolerances on the kit were just slightly off, as were the tolerances on my dash.
Pros:
functional, easy to understand instructions to modify for the vehicle
Cons:
just slightly too big. perfectionists will need to get out a dremel and go to work on their dash :)

No real alternative so it serves it's purpose. Nothing special.
Pros:
Helps mount unit, Like having the compartment below the radio for remote control or iPod.
Cons:
The panels parts labeled 'pathfinder' did not fit my car, I had to use the Xterra, The left panel did not have the necessary anchor hole in it, so I had to either break the nipple or drill a hole in the new panel. I drilled a hole to accomodate.

It looked like it was professionally done

Written By moe, Shakopee, MN on Monday, March 12, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Excellent product. The instructions could not have been any clearer. When I was done installing my stereo, it looked like it was professionally done. Very clean and neat. Excellent fit. There were parts that needed to be cut, but I found out that the plastic was soft enough that I could cut it with metal snips. The snips probably did a better job than the recommended saws would have.
Pros:
Excellent fit, Very clean and neat look.
Cons:
Have to break off or cut some parts. These extra things were there to fit other vehicles. Overall, it wasn't very hard to remove them, but it could be intimidating to someone, and if you don't do it right, you could potentially ruin it.

Directions were clear. Mounting kit and radio fit well except that the radio protruded a slight amount too for forward. I had to use a rasp to remove some material from the factory bezel in order for the upper bezel clips to seat properly. I think that this was caused by the Sony face plate design.

It fits, but not very solid.

Written By YYM, New Haven, CT on Friday, April 08, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I used this kit to mount a third-party Kenwood KDC-X395 radio receiver to my
Nissan Pathfinder 2001.

Good: The kit fits the Kenwood receiver very well, and it was very easy to install.

Bad: 1) it does not hold the radio very tight, I don't know whether it is the
problem of radio or the mount kit.
2) the mount kit is basically a frame plus two adapters to mount the
frame in position. The adapters are mount on the frame by only one screw each.
I'm just worried for such a heavy thing (frame + radio) how long the mount kit
can last.

Overall, it did the job, and easy to use but too much plastic and so few screws
give it an unstable feeling.

Useless for Pathfinder install

Written By Anonymous, Austin, TX on Wednesday, September 08, 2010
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Bought this kit, but ended up not using it. Probably because it's a universal kit, the HU opening is shifted down and the pocket is very small. Securing the HU mounting sleeve to the kit is sketchy at best and there is no option to directly mount it since there are no screw holes.

Nissan In-dash Receiver Kit review

Written By BigTufGuy, Gloversville, NY on Tuesday, October 27, 2009
 
Does what it is suppose to do. Not the most sturdy dash kit I have seen but it is made of plastic. One word of caution, If you are using this with a Dual XHD 7714, you will need to be handy with a dremel tool to modify the lower portion of the trim ring so you can open the face of the cd receiver.

A little bit of work and reading but it works

Written By Joe, Scottsdale, AZ on Monday, June 01, 2009
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I used this on my 2002 Nissan Xterra. It comes with a ton of adapters and pieces since it works on a bunch of Nissan vehicles. The instructions aren't as clear as I think they could be. It took me a decent amount of reading to understand what pieces I was supposed to be using and how everything went together. The install for the Xterra also requires you to cut 2 of the plastic pieces. The piece is angled and there isn't really a good tool for this application.

That being said, once I had everything done the unit fit pretty well (putting all of the trim pieces back on snugs it up). It matches the factory trim well and looks good. The 'assembly' took about 25 - 30 minutes. I would dock it 1 star for the instructions and cutting required, but since Crutchfield includes this for free, it's tough to complain.

The installation is a pain. You have to go through and cut through plastic to make it fit. Then the screws on the back to hold the bracket on slightly stripped out the plastic making the fit not as great as it could be. Once installed though, it looks good and functions well.

There were multiple parts left over as parts are included for Maxima, Frontier, etc. I just followed the instructions that came with it and it was easy and fit perfectly and looks great. This is the second kit I've used for a head unit install from Crutchfield and they both worked great and look good too.

And besides, Crutchfield includes it with your order for free!

When I ordered the radio I was told the truck absolutely needed the installation kit, which then changed which radio I bought. I did not order the radio I wanted because of the huge price difference. My truck did not need the kit at all. I don't know how aftermarket radios fit in your Nissan but my '01 Frontier used the factory bracket perfectly. Now I've got a radio I don't care for and an unused dash bracket. Not happy.

American International ND-K717 In-dash Receiver Kit

I didn't like the fact that the pocket cannot be removed if I wanted to use it and the factory brackets for a clean ISO mount. The instructions were not good.

Did the trick!

Written By Joshua, Seattle, WA on Monday, September 01, 2008
 
Overall, I'm impressed with the quality and fit with this adapter kit. There was locating pin in the upper right that the kit did not provide a hole for, and I had to drill a clearance hole in the plastic bracket. Also the lower pocket does not allow the DIN bracket retaining features to be bent down very much. But, it works, it looks pretty good, and that's all that matters!

One of the easiest installs I have ever done, the harness & install kit make the operation just about idiot proof. This is my first experience with Crutchfield, and it wont be my last. I am a Nissan service advisor that has recommended this sight to my friends, relatives & customers excellent work fellas!

I feel like a pro

This is a great product. I ordered a CD receiver and they threw this into the deal for free. It couldn't have been easier to install in my 2001 Xterra. Just attach the appropriate brackets for your make of Nissan, remove a few tabs and it screws right in to the vehicle. I had to remove 6 tabs to install it and I just used pliers to break them off. With this kit it literally took me about 1/2 an hour to install my new receiver (not including the time it took to solder up the wiring harness - which was also free). When it was all done it looked flawless and I felt like a pro. I have to say that throwing this and the harness into my order is a great value-add and it's made me a Crutchfield customer for as long as they keep up the good customer service. A great product from a great company. Cheers!

Using this in-dash receiver kit and following the simple, step-by-step instructions was a breeze. My 16-year-old son, who has never attempted anything like this, did all the work and had no problems whatsoever. The fit and finish are great! Wonderful product.

[2000 Nissan XTerra] Fits like a dream! Instructions are great!

Written By Craig, Lake Jackson, TX on Wednesday, August 09, 2006
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This being my first installation, I was a little hesitant to believe the directions. Being in a technical field, I thought "I know better than anything written" so I was very cautious along the way, checking fit and line up before I cut the tabs the instructions told me to cut.

Man, was I nervous, but this thing was NO PROBLEM! The fit was snug (again, made me nervous at first), but it fits and doesn't rattle or wiggle.

For all you first timers out there, don't sweat it. This thing is a breeze.

I also found that the Crutchfield directions on how to get into the dash and the radio housing was better than the $120 factory manual I have for the vehicle! Way to go guys!

I will never hesitate to shop here again.
