Perfect Dash Kit

Written By Jim, Shreveport, LA on Monday, September 08, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
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.

Good Construction and Instructions

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
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
Cons:
None

Got it free, works great

Written By BenW, Cincinnati, OH on Monday, June 30, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
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.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
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

painful to fiure out but worked in the end

Written By BK, Atlanta, GA on Sunday, January 05, 2014
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.

Installed into 05 4Runner

Written By J Baccus, Ca on Monday, December 30, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
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.

Pain

Written By Joe, Baltimore MD on Monday, October 28, 2013
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.

Perfect fit, ads a little storage cubby.

Written By my basque, San Angelo, TX on Tuesday, June 04, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
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.

Fits great

Written By Jamex, San Diego, CA on Monday, May 06, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
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, Central US on Tuesday, April 02, 2013
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.

It works, but you have to cut some pieces off

Written By JoeyF, Fremont, CA on Wednesday, July 18, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
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.

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.

Works, but you have to think it through

Written By DaveH, Arnold, Ca on Monday, March 28, 2011
 
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.

Fantastic for Toyota Highlander

Written By WMatt, Little Rock, AR on Saturday, February 05, 2011
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 well with modifications

Written By ChrisB, Kalispell, MT on Wednesday, September 01, 2010
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.

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

Written By Donald, Ventura, CA on Monday, March 23, 2009
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 .

Simple, Yet Effective

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.

Product Works, but not super

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...

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.
