It works - once you figure it out

Written by: Jeff from Charlotte, NC on June 15, 2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This was a new one for me. As someone that has installed a half dozen or more aftermarket stereos via Crutchfield, I'm used to the after-market dash kit. This is the first time I've seen one that was designed for 3-4 different vehicles, which means you have to break off pieces of the plastic molding in order to get it to fit your particular installation. This isn't impossible, but isn't necessarily as clear cut as it could be on the instructions. So take your time and pay attention to the markings, and you'll be fine. Once you have it in the right state, it works great, just like you would expect.

Pros:

Cons:

It Works.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

My application required no additional parts or trimming besides the main housing. It fit nicely and holds the radio firmly. I opted for a single DIN unit to have the extra stuff box below. The plastic was slightly curved up at the bottom of the stuff box, which was a disappointment - hoped it was a little thicker/stiffer plastic.

Pros: Quick and easy installation.

Cons: A little thinner plastic than expected with a slight upward bend in the bottom front of the stuff box.

2005 Toyota Matrix
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Does what it's supposed to and looks pretty good too. It is a multi fit part so there's some things that need to be removed from parts to fit your particular install. Directions are the normal and annoying pictures only which I don't like but taking your time and double checking the pictures before cutting gets the job done.

Pros: Buying the stereo, it's FREE. It's why I love Crutchfield.

Cons: Some people will gripe because they have to think, and God forbid work a little, because it doesn't put itself in the dash

2004 Toyota 4Runner
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

After cutting the unnecessary mounting brackets off, the unit fit seamlessly into the dash and the radio mounted seamlessly into it. The aesthetics were decent, but not as good as some of the kits I have purchased from Crutchfield in the past. The finish is not quite as nice as the Toyota vinyl it is meant to match and the storage box below the radio is a bit warped.

Pros: Fit perfectly once the extra mounting hardware is cut off.

Cons: Between the finish and the warped storage area (opening below the radio) it is not as nice as others I have purchased from Crutchfield.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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)

Perfect fit for my car.

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.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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.

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

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.

Nice fit

Written by: LucasW from Hancock, MI on January 15, 2015

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

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.

Cons: None.

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.

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

2003 Toyota 4Runner
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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.

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.

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.

Read if you own Toyota 4Runner 2003-2009

Written by: CH from Central US on April 2, 2013

2003 Toyota 4Runner
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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.

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!

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.

2003 Toyota Highlander
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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.

2004 Toyota 4Runner

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.

A bit overwhelming

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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.

Works Great

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 professional.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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.

2005 Toyota Matrix
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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.

Once you figure it out.....IT WORKS!!!

2008 Toyota Matrix
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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 .

2000 Toyota Echo
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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.

2005 Toyota Celica GT
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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 might work...

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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.

Yes, they both come with trim rings. However, you only need to use one. It's totally your choice which one you use. It just depends on which one looks best to you. I used the ring from the dash kit with this Pioneer. [ Lavaughn  Apr 10, 2016 ]
I used the trim ring that came with the install kit as it seemed to fit better than the Pionnrr ring [ James  Apr 10, 2016 ]
