Not Goodw

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 Dave, New York, NY on Monday, December 15, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I ordered this kit for my 2000 Cherokee and I am very disappointed by how loose and flimsy the bracket is. The two tiny mounting points feel as if they can hardly support the weight of the head unit and it vibrates when I drive.

Looks good and fits but I had to use a spacer to keep it flush with the dash face on my 99 Dodge Durango SLT+. It works. Just use a spacer on the top right bolt hole.

Fits perfect, arrived in less than 2 days! Could not find a Metra dash kit locally, Crutchfield had this cheaper than the other brands anyway, and with free shipping!

Pros: Fits my single DIN stereo perfect in my 99 Dodge Durango

Cons: None, it does what it's supposed to!

This piece fit my 2001 Dodge Ram 2500 diesel. Be sure to test the position if using in same vehicle, since it only fits one way. Otherwise, you will have reinstall the stereo in the face plate.

Pros: Good fit

Cons: Fits only one way.

Very easy to use. This isn't my 1st install. Dash kits make it very easy to install aftermarket radios. In the past I haven't used them. I would spend a day building my own out of metal.

Metra 30-6229 Dash Kit

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

Flimsy

Written By Winston L., Boone N.C. on Friday, July 04, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Yes it serves its purpose but is a flimsy piece. I am so glad I used it to install just a digital media receiver because I would be uncomfortable with a heavier head unit in it.

Fit tight

Written By Anonymous, Decatur, IN on Thursday, July 03, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It fits well its tight in the opening of my 98 jeep wrangler. It doesn't rattle or move the only complaint I have is that the cut out for the radio is crooked which means the radio now sits crooked.

Pros: No rattle tight fit.

Cons: Cut out is crooked

Perfect Fit

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

Pros: Makes installation very easy for a DIY installer

Cons: NONE

Loose Fit

Written By dwl, Pennsylvania on Friday, June 20, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The template was easy to use, but the fit seems really loose. When we press the buttons on the stereo the whole thing moves around. The tabs that keep the stereo in the faceplate don't create a tight fit.

Pros: Easy to install

Cons: Loose fit

Metra 30-6229 In-dash Receiver Kit Review

Written By Roy, Amissville, VA on Thursday, June 12, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This product was instrumental in a simple installation process for the new stereo. However, it did not fit the 1997 Dodge RAM 1500 SLT as perfectly as other kits I have used from Crutchfield. I was able to adapt and overcome the challenges it presented, with little effort. I am a little, just a little, disappointed with this product.

Pros: Helped ease installation

Cons: Was not a 'perfect' fit, but did the job with slight adjustments

Usable

Written By LKMcKee, Ashland, MO on Monday, March 24, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This will work for the stated application, but having used hits similar to these in the past, I was aware that if the installation space is large and the receiver has any weight to it, the receiver can move around a bit and seem unanchored in the rear and while the front looks good, touching and using the unit can make it seem very unsteady, so I did some searching and found a different adapter for my unit also made by Metra that has support and works awesome. This would probably work with a vehicle with less internal dash space but with my mini van... would be a nightmare.

Pros: nice finish ... looks great... fills gaps

Cons: No support for rear of receiver which is a must have if used in a larger vehicle.

Fit well and easy to install

Written By John, Central Missouri on Friday, March 21, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This in dash kit came with the radio for my wife's Jeep Cherokee. It was easy to install and fit perfectly, after removing the dash trim that just pulls off starting at the bottom. You will need to put the car's shift lever in the low position to get the panel off if the shift is a console shift. Fallow the direction and it's a snap.

Pros: Easy to install. fits good , and looks good.

Exactly did what I needed it to do. Looks amazing. Was a little nervous I was sent the wrong part but then realized I had it upside down. Flipped it around and it fit great besides one tab. But the instructions did say to just break off the tab if it doesn't work for your setup. The screws provided didn't work for me but I just used the old ones which worked perfectly.

Pros: Looks great, Easy to install.

Cons: Could be more clear that tab may need to be broken off.
