perfect fit

Written By Mike W, Pennsylvania on Tuesday, July 21, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Perfect fit in a vehicle pushing 20 years old.

Pros: Great fit

Cons: None

good fit

Written By kog, Kansas on Monday, June 29, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It does exactly what it is supposed to. My receiver fits securely into this and looks nice

Pros: A perfect fit. The color and finish are close enough to factory that it looks very nice. It came with phillips head screws so I can switch out the factory bolts that held the radio in place if I wanted to . . . and I did. Now I can use a single screwdriver to do the dash and radio removal if I want to make any changes in the future.

Cons: none. I have no negative issues to report at this time. The screw holes all matched up. The receiver fit perfectly into it. It felt like a good secure mount when the receiver was slid into place.

Metra 30-6229 Dash Kit

Written By Greg, Arizona on Sunday, June 21, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It works for what I needed, but is flimsy so if you push the buttons with a solid push, the radio shifts in the dash. Part of it is the mounting system, not fully securing the radio into the bracket (needs a more solid method of holding it). It does work, and I'm not so unhappy that I would take it out and replace it.

Pros: Easy to use

Cons: Does not hold firmly

Does its job

Fit DashPerfectly, Looks Awesome

Written By JimL, Somerville, AL on Monday, April 27, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This filler component allowed us to install the standard radio into the factory space on our 95 Dodge Ram 1500. The piece looks like part of the original factory dash once installed. The plastic tabs align perfectly with the stock dash components to make installation very easy. Thanks! Jim

Pros: Black Color matches factory dash. Even if it didn't it could be painted to match any color. Plastic tabs fit stock dash sub-structure components, no screws or fasteners are required. No gaps between radio and filler, no unsightly cracks or voids

Cons: Can't think of any

great

Does Not Support Dodge Ram Van Receiver

Written By Jamie, California on Monday, April 06, 2015

The website says this is what my 96 Dodge Ram Van needed. It does not hold the single din receiver. I had to go to a stereo shop, and the guy knew exactly which Metra dash kit I needed. Very similar but has brackets that support the stereo in the large space. Wasted money and had to go find the correct one. Bit of a bummer.

Pros: Probably works fine for the correct vehicle.

Cons: Did not work for my vehicle even though the online vehicle tool said it did. Only posting a review incase someone has a 96 Dodge Ram that needs a dash kit. Call for help first.

Crutchfield response on Tuesday, April 14, 2015 We have confirmed this was the correct kit for the Dodge RAM Van. It's a custom kit that Metra builds specifically for Crutchfield, and we've used it in many vehicles for years. The other kit that you purchased is most likely Metra's standard kit for these vehicles. It's more generic, so it'll work in even more vehicles, and can sometimes cause confusion during the installation. But either kit will do the job. When using this kit, be sure that you bend the tabs securely on the stereo's DIN sleeve (the metal cage included with your new stereo) in order to form a rigid mount. That will ensure that the stereo is held firmly in place. Meanwhile, since this kit didn't work out for you, we have refunded the price of it to your credit card.

Dashkit...

Written By Multi Jeeper, California on Sunday, April 05, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It's handy, and works... but There are things that could be better about it. For one, it needs to be stronger. Seems to flex more than I'd like. Might need some fibers added to the plastic mix to tighten it up. Next, I would pay more for a kit that cam with multiple mounting options. What if I wanted the head unit at the top of the adapter... or the bottom... ? I am stuck with it being right in the middle. If it was higher or lower, then I could mount some switches in the available space... or mount a jack or several, for a rear aux input, or USB input. Just seems like this adapter could have been far more developed and better designed.

Pros: Quick and easy

Cons: Lack of options Not as strong as I'd like

Written By ErinR, Grand Junction, CO on Tuesday, March 10, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was installing the stereo into a 2001 Jeep and this piece was essential for a professional looking install. You will need to install the stereo trim plate before locking the stereo into the space because of a slight clearance issue.

Pros: Worked great!

Cons: none

This was a perfect fit for my truck. The description shows it fits 81 to 93 Dodge trucks but it fit perfectly in my 80 and I imagine would actually work for 74 through 93. I wish the guy before me had ordered the correct part instead of drilling holes in the dash.

Pros: Perfect fit.

Written By Wille, Milwaukee on Tuesday, December 16, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The radio is not secure and does not allow face to be removed without flexing mount. Poorly designed product, and would require addiontal support for optimal secure mounting. Would not buy again.

Pros: Black

Cons: Not secure- lots of flex. Does not have adequate hold for radio slide.

Written By Anonymous, Northern michigan on Sunday, September 14, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This was the first time I ever purchased the installation kit with a stereo, and I will never go without it again. For just a few bucks, all of the hassle of rounding up the required connectors and making the stuff fit was gone. The finished product looks great too. Fits PERFECTLY. I do autobody repair for a living, tearing into a dash is a very normal thing for me. That said, I will still buy the install kit the next time I get a stereo. Its just too much of a value and headache saver not to.

Pros: Makes the job easy and good looking when its done

Written By HappyCustomer, Florence, KY on Thursday, June 26, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

A perfect fit for the 2000 Durango I just replaced the stereo for. The textured, yet "flat" (read: not shiny) finish is perfect for that interior as well, and doesn't stand out against the new stereo. Perfect, snug, fit that doesn't allow for wiggling around or anything of the sorts.

Pros: Perfect fit, Easy to Install

Cons: None
