Ford dash kit used for Blaupunkt NJ 220

Written By Anonymous, Otay Ranch, CA on Tuesday, September 30, 2014
 
Shipped with purchase of Blaupunkt NJ 220. The frame fits the head unit, but the side brackets do not fit flush due to the design of the case and can not be used. Had to glue frame to receiver.
Pros:
Good color match with receiver and installation looks original in Mercury Milan.
Cons:
See above. Do not recommend for this receiver.

Not for 2011 F250SD

Written By Voodooudo, Jacksonville, FL on Sunday, September 28, 2014
 
Not a good fit. The bezel sits back from the dash faceplate enough to be a problem, looks cheesy. Had to make modifications to the side brackets to make it fit into the hole. Figured out how to get it to this point. Needs thicker spacers to set the bezel out further. Or better yet, just make one that actually fits so I don't have to go to all this trouble.
Pros:
Gave me something to tinker with in the garage.
Cons:
Eventually finished up.

Bad quality but came free

Written By Anonymous, Seattle, WA on Monday, September 08, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I had to make this work for my deck. It is plastic and said to use the screws that came with my deck. Unfortunately since the plastic had to be so thick for strength I assume the screws were too short and I had to find some that would work. I would expect better from Crutchfield but it was free after all!
Pros:
Fit my dash.
Cons:
Plastic. Did not include correct screws. A slight reveal between the trim and the bottom of the deck.

Could be better

Written By Tim, Colorado Springs, CO on Sunday, April 13, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Overall I'm pleased with the turnout of the install kit. The instructions mention removing the rear tabs but the picture points to the guide pins. I removed the pins and only after spending too much time trying to decipher the instructions I removed the tabs so the kit would work.
Pros:
It is a nice product and makes installing an aftermarket stereo easier with nice end results.
Cons:
The instructions really need to be proofed and corrected for clarity. In my case they only confused me and added time to the install.

Written By Perry, Camarillo, CA on Friday, April 04, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This kit is WAY too generic and required quite a bit of modification to get it to fit in the dash. The instructions are completely useless as it fails to mention that you have to use the spacers, so I had to take all back out after putting everything back together.
Pros:
Can't find one!
Cons:
Bad instructions, too many modifications to make fit properly

Fits, but requires modification

Written By FrankF, Wisconsin on Monday, February 03, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This unit was on backorder, so I had to wait for it. Once it arrived, the direction that came with it were pretty confusing, but a call to Crutchfield cleared everything up. Still required cutting the rear tabs off the bracket, and to get it to fit in the dash properly, it required using two of the four supplied spacers. Looks great now that it's in, but was the most frustrating part of the install (I installed a receiver, SiriusXM radio and steering wheel control adapter).
Pros:
fits nicely once it's in.
Cons:
Directions are poor, and it required cutting off the rear tabs, and a lot of dry-fitting, before the fit was right.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Overall it was a good, easy clean fit with my Pioneer AVH-X4500BT in my 07 F150. My only complaint really is the four tabs that take the scews to mount the deck. They are made out of plastic and if you don't need the spacers, but still have to tighten it down, they flex and look like they're are going to break. I wish they were beefier and allowed you to notch them out for depth fit or were thin but made from aluminium so that they could be tightened down as needed but are less likely to break. Overall, good fit though fortunately and great help from Crutchfield with the MasterSheet! You have to be an idiot not to be able to do most of the job. Wiring takes a little more care but doable with Crutchfield help.
Pros:
Great fit
Cons:
Four mounting tabs made of plastic

Use the Metra 95-5812 in dash receiver kit to install my new double din Sony head unit into my 06 Ford F150. Everything was fine until attaching the head unit to the receiver kit. Only one hole lined up so I had to modify it. Also when placing it into the dash it would not fit. I had to cut off the back tabs on both sides to give it enough clearance to be installed.
Pros:
Looks great

Poor instructions, poor fit

Receiver Kit

Written By DavidM, Hillsboro, OR on Saturday, November 02, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The mounting bracket / faceplate trim fit my new head unit great, BUT the kit did not come with screws to attach it to the unit, just screws to mount the assembly into the dash, so I had to in search of some. Good thing they're cheap and fairly easy to find. PLUS I had to trim some un-needed tabs off the sides of the mounting bracket just so I could get the assembly into the dash, good thing it was plastic. The faceplate trim is a very shiny black, the finish in the dash area of my truck is matte, if I had more time, and patience, I would have painted it to match better, but the face of my new head unit is shiny black too, so it's a minor nag. It came free with my new head unit, so I guess I can't complain too much.
Pros:
It was free.
Cons:
No screws to attach it to the head unit. Extra un-needed tabs had to cut off the sides of the mounting bracket.

The kit looks like it is a factory product after it is installed. The installation was more difficult than I thought it would be, though. I found the instructions were poorly written. The instructions for my 2004 F150 consisted of two pages with many other pages for other vehicles. The illustrations were not very descriptive so it took several hours to figure out how to install my receiver with the kit. I am fairly experienced with electronics and packaging but have not installed many car receivers.
Pros:
It looks great after installation is complete
Cons:
Poor directions

Looks great now that it is installed. Good fit around the radio and in the dash.
Pros:
Looks like a factory installed radio. Does what it is supposed to do!
Cons:
Holes did not line up well. Had to trim and adapt with poorly written instructions. Not terribly difficult, but not a quick fit, either.

This kit came close, but found myself sorely tempted to trim the opening a bit, to make it a more "perfect" fit...chose not to for fear of doing structural damage. It does the job, just not quite as clean as you would like.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This was super easy to install in my 2012 F250 SuperDuty. It fits nice and tight, with the black matching radio and bezel alike.
Pros:
Perfect fit with the FORD bezel.
Cons:
Suggest using dikes or similar heavier duty wire cutters to trim the rear mounting tabs off, rather than the utility knife shown in the instructions.

Metra 95-5812 Dash Kit

Written By John H, Corpus Christi TX on Thursday, November 29, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The worst part of the install, but eventually worked OK. The worst part was the directions said remove the 2 back tabs, but a nice little arrow poiting to them would have helped! I spent 3 hours working on this thing until I finally got up the nerve to cut off the two huge pieces off the back of the mount! They were not made to come off, so it took some heavy duty cutters. If your installing the radio in a F-150, (mine is an 08) go ahead and cut off what you think they are referring too as tabs! After that it slips right in and almost fits just right.Anyway about it, it sure beat installing a single DIN unit in my truck and eventually made my JVC look great in the dash.
Pros:
Allows you to put a double din unit in the big hole in the dash of a F150.
Cons:
Kinda cheap and poor instructions. Just do what looks right and it will work.

The picture should do a better job of showing what tabs need to be cut off for a 2007 F-150. Only 2 holes instead of the recommended 3 on each side would line up - hope this holds the unit secure.

I had to make several mods to the bracket to fit my dash. The radio doesn't fill the center of this bracket so there is a 1/8 inch gap between the radio and the bezel. Also I had to do some shimming with washers to get the bezel to line up with the dash.
Pros:
it holds the radio in place.

fit & finish is not good.

This kit does not fit the Pioneer AVH-3400BH very well. The best way to explain it is if there were a light source inside my dash there would be a lot of light leaking into my cab. There's at least a 1/16" gap all the way around this kit. Kind of makes the allure of buying from Crutchfield for the perks not so great.

It makes my AVH4300DVD installation look like it was installed by a professional. If the AVH4300DVD unit had Ford on it instead of Pioneer the installation would look factory.
Pros:
It makes my AVH4300DVD installation look like it was installed by a professional.
Cons:
Nothing much to say that is negative except I wish the adjustment slots were a little longer for some very fine tunning. I did my slots as I saw fit with a very small round file.

Works, but not exact, I used on Clarion NX500, does not give OEM look that I was after without excessive modifications, safe to say, I broke the trim ring trying to modify. After purchase of second trim ring, and now with experience of what not to do.. I was able to file down and make fit like it should, not exact but will do.

Good but instructions lacking

Written By Anonymous, Clinton, MS on Tuesday, March 09, 2010
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I got this for installation on my '07 F150 SCrew truck to install my Pioneer AVH-P3200BT. The double din brackets have extra tabs in the back that are to used in my truck. They require you to cut them off, but there are no tear-away guide lines molded in them and the instructions had no pictures showing this. So I just had to get my tin snips out and just go for it. It's not a big deal to someone experienced, but for someone who has little or no experience may find this tricky with out the well written instructions. Also, the instructions don't say the spacer tabs are needed for the upper brackets, so after I installed it in my dash and put the surround back on I noticed the spacing wasn't flush. I had to take everything back out and install the spacers.

It looks good, the colors match and the unit fits perfectly but the instructions are lacking. They should have spent less time showing how to disassemble the dash and more time on the installation/modification instructions.

Careful with Heavy receivers

Written By Pat, Cleveland, OH on Tuesday, May 19, 2009
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I got one of these mounts with my AVIC Z2 for use in my 2007 F-150
Supercrew. It must have been a predecessor to this one, because it didn't
have the U-shaped pieces that need to be ground off (See Mario's review),
but otherwise exactly the same. After about a year the plastic tabs that
hold it to the truck broke off leaving my unit hanging back in the dashboard.

I just purchased one of these to replace it because I couldn't find anything
made out of metal.

My recommedation if you have a heavy head unit (mine weighs 14lbs) is to
build some type of support for the unit to rest on so all the weight isn't on
the mounts.

Fits in 2007 F-150; sort of

Written By Mario, Visalia, CA on Thursday, February 19, 2009
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I bought this product to use in my 2007 F-150 Supercrew. The double din radio fit in the harness, and the screw holes on the harness line up correctly with the dash.

BUT, if you notice in the picture there are two U-shaped pieces on the harness. (Two on each side actually.) These are wider that the rest of the unit, and I had to take a Dremmel to them in order to make the harness fit back into the dash.

I tried every possible angle and trick I could think of to get the harness and radio in the dash with those U-shaped pieces on there, but it would not go. Seems pointless anyway, because in my dash, there is nothing that those U-shaped pieces could connect to.

So after I cut them off, the harness fit right in, and four screws later, seems like a perfectly good mount.
