Pros: Looks good, easy to install
Cons: directions wasn't as clear to understand as I would have liked. Pictures was hard to understand.
Came as a freebie, worked great.
Pros: Made installation easy and looked professional.
this product def. fits for my 2006 4runner. however there is modifying that has to be done to ensure fit is correct.. the tabs that need to be removed from the dash kit are not easily bent off. I was lucky enough to have dremel tool handy and it made removal of the unnecessary tabs a cake walk. without the dremel tool i am sure it would have taken a lot more effort to get to fit correctly.. but overall its very sturdy and my single din does not rattle around inside of the dash kit while driving and no skip from cd playback.
Pros: strong sturdy
Cons: removal of the tabs (use dremel tool)
This was a perfect fit for my car. It comes with so many pieces that you may not know what to do with, but once i put the pieces that belonged for my car, it fit perfect. However, i had to cut several pieces off to finally get this to go into my dash.
Pros: Perfect fit for my car.
Cons: I had to remove several pieces of plastic to make this fit into my dash.
I gave it a four star rating. If you want a novice to install you need to add some help. I installed it on a Toyota highlander 2005. The screws are not labeled; therefore, I had to pick the right two screws. The number labels on the different brackets could be made easier to see. Also in the factory installed radio there are side bolts that go into the bracket. This bracket does not have the side holes for the bolts. The new installed radio held fine in the bracket.
Worked great in our '06 Highlander. Nice design, easy install, looks good.
All parts were there for my 2006 Toyota Matrix, along with the parts to fit other vehicles, so a little tricky to separate. But overall it worked just fine.
Pros: Parts fit well, instructions reasonably clear
Cons: Too many other parts (for other vehicles)
Cons: Took a little cutting and filing to fit, but spelled out in instruction sheet.
Dont get any better!
Pros: Crystal clear instructions no loop holes.....plastic pieces labeled so u know what piece is what and what pieces u dont need
Works really good and easy to use
Very easy to use, be sure to follow the directions carefully and break off the correct plastic tabs. :) Made the installation a breeze, and it fits perfectly in the opening.
Pros: Easy to use Makes installation easy Fits perfectly in the opening
Cons: Pictures in instructions could have been slightly clearer to indicate which tabs to remove for installation
The kit looks nice when installed and goes in pretty easy (once you know which tabs come out and how the factory stuff marries up with kit. I had to call into support to ask. They were very helpful
Pros: looks good installed.
Cons: The instructions for actually attaching the radio to the brackets was a little lacking. I had to call support and they didn't exactly know, but they worked with me to sort it out. The instructions (at least for a Toy. Highlander) could have a bit more detail.
Install was very simple. The instructions were a little unclear on what had to be snapped off. Also, the trim ring doesn't snap in, but is a compression fit, which is weird.
Pros: Easy install
Cons: Poorly printed shading in instructions
Allows easy install of receiver and looks good too. Lots of unused extra parts.
Pros: Looks good, fast install.
The plastic adapter is of decent quality. It was a perfect fit and the included directions were simple and easy to follow.
Pros: Good quality
Great Dash Kit, but instructions were a little unclear. Also had a bunch of leftover parts that I didn't use which just confused things. Thank you to Crutchfield for making it free.
Cons: Unclear instructions leftover parts that I didn't use which just confused the installation.
When you first open the packaging there are a lot of parts. Breathe easy, you don't meet them all. Look at the simple manual, identify your vehicle, and then select the parts for your car. Set all the others aside and get to work. It's an easy install and it saved me a ton of cash. You can do this. All by yourself. Easy-peasy...
Pros: Simple, complete, easy.
Easy to use instructions and came with the CD Receiver that I purchased, installed in just a few minutes with no issues at all. It has extra mounting tabs that need to be "cut" off, I just snapped them off and it was easy as it could have been.
Pros: Easy to install Free with the purchase of a CD Receiver
Fits many vehicles
I'm giving this 4 stars because it was free with my radio. It is of about the quality you'd expect, definitely sturdy and not unattractive, but plain. The lower cubby is actually rather nice, and is big enough to fit a lot of things. The included instructions were clear and straightforward. So far I have no complaints about it.
Pros: Free (for me) Easy to use Works Not sure what more you want
Cons: Could be of higher quality - but it was free.
I found the kit to have everything I needed for the install.
Pros: Included all the parts I needed for my car....and many extras!
Cons: The instructions were difficult to follow on a couple of the steps...I wasn't positive I had it right, but...it worked out in the end.
A solid kit that works well. It does take some effort to adjust the kit for you specific car (it is 'universal' for several Toyota models), so keep this in mind. Once it was all said and done, it work well and installed as advertised.
Pros: Final fit and finish (visible in car)
Cons: Instructions for model-specific modifications could be better; all plastic construction could be improved
Exactly what I needed and easy to install
Pros: All pieces were there, and a good price
Fit perfect, made installation look great
Illustrations were too minimal and confusing; identifying the specific pieces and different tabs to break off and adapt for a 4Runner vs a rav4 was almost comical; luckily my best guess worked. Explicit instructions for each vehicle would cause a lot less anxiety-- I'm not exactly a dunce and it was harder to figure it out than necessary, so i can imagine someone with a lot less patience and experience with "fixin stuff" could completely screw this up
Pros: After a lot of puzzling and luck, it fit
Cons: Should not take a lot of puzzling and luck.
Used this to install a JVC receiver into my girlfriends 05 4Runner. Reviver dropped right into it once I configured the correct side brackets and removed correct amount of plastic (there are multiple vehicle configurations on each set of brackets). Just pay attention to the instructions that come with it to determine what needs to be removed and which side brackets to use.
this is the best dashboard kit i have ever bought. it fits flawlessly and looks great. it even comes with brackets for a 2.0 din head unit. i am very satisfied.
Pros: different bracket attatchments for different models seamless frame included for the radio itself comes with EVERYTHING
It was a bit of a PITA to figure out correct install with the supplied directions. Part numbers to use were listed but confusing. I used trial and error to get it installed, but once figured out worked well. I am a novice, so someone with more experience might not have any issues.
It does what its suppose do, looks great.
I didnt like breaking off or cutting off uneeded tabs. Felt like I was going to break it. Had all these extra pieces. The kit goes to a bunch of different cars so there are plastic tabs that are supposed to get cut off. It was annoying and frustrating. Then the screws they give you that go in the sides are too short. Its together but its flimsy.
Pros: Works with your stereo.
Cons: Have to put it together like a science project.
This in dash kit was the most complete radio install kit I've ever received. The instructions were clear and easy to follow and I ended up with a professional looking installation for a fraction of the price.
Pros: Nice fit and finish.
Cons: One step of grinding some points down required a power tool.
Fit perfectly and looks good. Having to file off metal parts is a real downer
Pros: Once installed, looks great and fit perfectly
Cons: Metal nubs had to be filed off....a major pain and unexpected issue
Excellent! this kit made very easy to install in my car
Pros: Installation instructions were easy to follow.
This product worked great. Instructions were clear and accurate. My only complaint is if I am ordering for a Toyota Highlander why send all of the other plastics that I don't need? I realize it is probably cheaper this way but it also wastes natural resources.
Pros: Fit well
User friendly directions and very easy to use !
Pros: Easy to use
Cons: A couple of the hole brackets are to small. Could not use a couple of screws that where supplied because of those brackets listed above ^^^^
Easy to install and looks professional once installed.
Pros: Easy to install
Cons: Requireds tools to break plastic in some areas.
This kit is self explanatory with the coded breakaway tabs and the push tabs for locking into place. Finished product looks good. Has the added bonus of picking between the head unit's trim plate or the dash kit trim plate which is the one I used and looks great.
Pros: Nice looking, easy assembly and install.
Great product looks good in the dash.
Pros: easy to use
Does exactly what I need: allows for installation of a nice aftermarket deck and leaves a clean professional appearance.
Pros: Fits perfect, looks professional, ads a little storage cubby that is great for storing fairly shallow things (smartphone, CD).
Cons: Although this kit is only for a few specific models, it is still made quite universal. With that said, many tabs need to be broken off in order for it to fit inside your dash. I cam see it being easy to break off a critical tab if you aren't looking at the instructions very closely.
Kit works great and easy to install in my Echo.
Pros: Great Free kit.
Everything went in very smoothly. Didn't have to trim anything. Good fit and finish. Connecting the wires too the most time @ 10 minutes w/butt connectors.
Pros: Simple, clear instructions and everything fits perfect
Fit is excellent. Just have to trim off the pieces as instructed and you're good to go.
Pros: Fit is excellent.
Cons: Slight warping in lower rim under the opening is noticed, but not an issue.
Easy to follow instructions. Very versatile.
Pros: Easy to install.
Cons: Needed extra cutting tools.
Got this free along with my Kenwood KDC-X897. I replaced the stock head unit in my '03 Toyota Highlander using this kit. The instructions were pretty clear, although I did call the customer service number for one quick question and they were friendly and helpful as always (the call was in regards to removing certain tabs on the kit that were unneeded.) I didn't have any fine saws on hand but I did have a dremel which removed the tabs neatly. I would not recommend just trying to snap them off by hand). The kit fit right in there and looks great. The lower panel now holds my stereo remote and iphone/ipod. Would buy again.
Pros: Easy to install, looks great.
Cons: Instructions had me cutting certain tabs off to fit my vehicle. Still, no biggie. Love it.
Easy and complete instructions.
Pros: Only took about 30 minutes to install my stereo.
Let me say first that the consumer has no choice but to accept this Toyota receiver kit from Crutchfield....and it was free so how much can one complain I guess? Well take 1 guess as to why anything is "free". My complaint is to Crutchfield on this one. Why contract with a company providing such a poorly made product? Heck charge me $20.00 so at least I can pay for some quality!! The plastic is horrible. Be VERY careful pulling it out of the bag or installing because the plastic mounting screw tabs break off easily (no matter what model Toyota you have). If you own a 4Runner the setup is upside down because the two stock mounting screws are on the bottom of the dash inset not the top. So long story short it doesn't fit right. The plastic mounting tabs aren't long enough, so I tried adding a nut behind to give it a little more length but it is still about .25 inches away from mounting flush with the vehicle's receiver opening. Additionally, the upside down installation makes the angle wrong so even if it was a flush fit it wouldn't look right. A letdown to my personal handy work but I'm not exactly entering any car stereo competitions either.
Pros: Ummm it keep the receiver from falling out?
Cons: Incredibly cheap plastic. Doesn't fit a 2003-2009 4Runner dash properly. No other options that I can find with Crutchfield.
Fit the dash perfect and gave install a professional look
I've installed a couple decks in the past, but never in a newer vehicle. We purchased this mounting kit because it was a single DIN deck going into a double DIN slot. The instructions were not the clearest when assembling it, but overall it worked great.
Easy instructions Nothing better than free Needs dremeling for proper install
Pros: Free, clean install,
Cons: Fit is slightly imperfect probably but I can only notice.
2002 Toyota Highlander non-JBL audio system. Perfect fit by following instructions. Have patience, requires slight modifications.
Cons: Wasted material - only needed 3 out of like 8 pieces total Requires modifications: - cutting pieces of plastic to make flush - using dremel tool to file down metal bumps on OEM metal frame
The kit has everything you need for installation and instructions were basic,but clear enough.However, not very "earth-friendly" due to the amount of car models it could be adapted to. I threw away more plastic parts than I actually used.Crutchfield could benefit(read profit) by having a return/recycle unused parts program IMO.
Pros: Everything you need!
Cons: Way more than you need!
Great dash kit, not one of those cheap ones that don't fit or look like crap. Easy install, great vehicle specific instructions.
Pros: Fit, ease of install, free with reciever purchase
This fits perfectly and works in my car, during the installation, I had to trim some of the pieces off. It's a general kit for different car models, I had a small cut with my thumb trying to cut the pieces off (my fault really). In terms of improvement, I think it would be better if we didn't have to cut anything off and just install.
Cons: have to trim some pieces off.
Fit the car very well.
Pros: It was very clear at to what needed to be done to complete the install.
This kit fit perfectly, looks great in the dash and was exactly what was needed.
Pros: Its just what you need
This is kinda a no-brainer but it went in & fits perfectly so no complaints
This item installed nicely and looks almost factory. Much better than the last adapter I used many years ago
Pros: Solid not flimsy
Cons: none really
The kit only has one drawback. See cons
Pros: Almost a perfect fit.
Cons: Once I installed the unit I noted that if I press a corner button on the unit it moves.
Went in easy and the instructions were easy to follow.
This in-dash kit fit my 2004 Toyota 4runner SR5 perfectly. The installation was very easy. Thank you!
This worked like a champ!@ Matrix 2007
Easy to install, Perfect fit and finish, Very happy!
Having to install a new receiver that I got as a gift, I was faced with having to
buy an in-dash kit to make it fit to my vehicle (Toyota Highlander). I browsed on
your web site and
found this kit.
Once I got it, the instructions were very clear and it was easy to work with and
prepare the receiver to be mounted on the dash.
Simple, Easy, Perfect Fit are some of the words I can use to describe this
product. Well worth the money and my time.
The kit contained so many different plastic mounts, one has to lay it out, compare it
to the stock setup and hopes it works. After cutting off tabs and mounting brackets
I finally found the right combination to mount the radio. I worry about the plastic
being strong enough to hold the radio in place as the OEM bracket was steel.
Completed install looks and functions fine.
there are a lot of pieces which need to be assembled. Directions not that clear.
Otherwise was ok.
This mounting kit fit my 2002 Toyota Highlander perfectly. The instructions that
Crutchfield sent along with the kit were spot-on, too. The fit of this mounting kit
makes the 3rd party radio I installed look like it was done by a professional.
There were several parts in the kit that didn't apply to the Highlander, which I
was worried about at first, but once I figured out how it had to be positioned,
and what parts needed to be removed from the mounting bracket, it was all
good. I very highly recommend this mounting kit.
This installation kit worked great for my 4-Runner. A few tabs need to be cut to fit a
particular Toyota model, but the instructions with the kit are good. The Cruchfield
instructions for removal of the factory radio were excellent. The final installation looks
Good kit, the finish was the best factor for the kit. Looks good and fits my model perfectly.
This kit includes the pieces that you need for mounting either a DIN or ISO-mount receiver. I
found the DIN mount to be too flimsy for my tastes, and the ISO mount brackets didn't
include support from the bottom, so I had to modify some of the pieces for DIN and ISO to
work together. With those modifications, it mounts quite solidly.
As others have stated, the instructions are not entirely clear. And I think the parts are a tad on the flimsy side, but overall the installation went well and the fit is great in our 2005 Matrix. Plus I really like having the extra shelf below the head unit.
As others have stated, the instructions on this are vague to say the least. Once I realized that the kits covers a bunch of different Toyota models, it was easier to see what needed to be done. Depending on what model you have, you must cut off the pieces that aren't meant for your model. The pieces are marked in certain spots (very small writing) for different car models. I have a 2008 Matrix.
One thing that was confusing was determining whether or not you needed the other pieces that came with it. The instructions say to use IF you need the ISO piece. I did not know what an ISO was, but was able to figure out which piece I need and then it went smoothly.
Once I got it in, it looks great. Very professional looking install. The main face plate looks great, and fit perfectly .
Perfect fit, easy installation. You can't ask for more.
When it comes down to it, this kit works just fine. The instructions that come with it are a little vague, but not impossible to figure out when used in conjunction with the instructions from Crutchfield (which are great).
I installed this in an Echo and ended up having to use the trim ring. It's not the classiest looking, but neither is the Echo. ;) I didn't need most of the extra pieces, but everything fit very well and was very simple to install.
As another reviewer stated, the manufacturers printed directions are very poor, directions state, "remove shaded area," however there are not pictures much less a shaded area. This kit would have fit better if the exterior of the kit was slightly larger, 1/8th of an inch or so, there is a slight gap surrounding the stereo and the dash trim on my toyota celica, it is servicable, but not best. Also the dash trim on the Celica is concaved whereas the kit is completely flat, it looks OK, but again, could be better. Although I have never seen a kit that looked truely integrated.
It looks like it may work.
The documentation that came with this kit is VERY bad. Not the directions, but the images. They are MISSING. There is a lot of "Remove the shaded area" and "cut off this area", but the images are missing. I can only hope that I remove the right section. Best yet, the manufacture said to return in, rather than just email a PDF.
Worked great. No problems. Thanks Crutchfield for making it so easy!!
