Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Looks great. Can't even tell it's an aftermarket install

Pros: Simple to work with

Cons: None

Rear tabs were a pain to remove

Written By 2005 F150 installation, Minnesota on Tuesday, October 27, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This Metra adapter does fit in the F150 if you can cut the rear tabs. I did so with some side cutters that didn't do a great job, so I ended up feeding the radio with attached bracket through the bottom of the dash opening (HVAC controls area). I also did not need the spacers that the instructions said to add to the front tabs.

Pros: Looks nice installed

Cons: Hard to cut the rear tabs good enough

Dash kit

Written By Kevlar, Philly burbs on Thursday, October 08, 2015

Not a fan of this. I'm kind of disappointed with this mess. Extensive grinding was required around the perimeter to fit my Kenwood double din head unit and to top it all off it sticks out about 3/8 inch in my super duty ford truck. Made in usa???? Hah no wonder their jobs are shipped overseas! Look elsewhere if there is any other options.

Pros: None that I can think of. Unnecessarily aggravating.

Cons: This junk used to be free with purchase, now they make you pay for this lousy engineered stuff. What up Crutchfield?

Crutchfield response on Wednesday, October 14, 2015 After reading this review, our Vehicle Research team will reevaluate this installation kit. Due to several factors, we've had to adjust ways we offer installation gear and tools for mobile gear to our customers. We realize this is a change to previous offers, and we listen to all the feedback our customers provide. We'll certainly keep comments like these in mind as these offers continue to evolve.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a very good product. It was easy to use, honestly, I don't know how good the instructions were because I didn't read them. It fit perfectly in my dash and made a very clean install.

Pros: Finished product looks great!

Cons: A few extra steps are needed using the supplied spacers behind the mounting holes to level the mount up with the dash panel and cutting off the rear mounting brackets (which I did glance and see in the instructions), but that's all part of using a "universal" kit.

Had to trim back piece of the bracket. Doesn't fit otherwise. Looks good to anyone that gets into truck but because I installed it I see the issue. I had a friend look at it too and he agrees not much could be done. I would use again.

Pros: Looks good with some modifying not perfect. Most people wouldn't see an issue with it.

Cons: Most wouldn't notice it's not totally straight in my truck this is why they call it universal

The dash kit fits the radio nicely but there is nothing in the instructions about removing the rear mounting tabs. They have to be removed to even get the radio in the dash.

Pros: ease of mounting on the radio

Cons: no mention of tab removal

Written By LanceP, Kingsland, TX on Monday, May 04, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Directions are horrible. My suggestion is to read over them to get an overview, then throw them in the trash. Don't refer back to them. Use your intuition and common sense to get the best possible fit for your application. There will be some trial and error, but if you stick with it, eventually, it will fit great and look great.

Pros: End product looks great and fits great.

Cons: Directions are garbage. Will take some patience to get it installed perfectly.

Dash Kit for 2005 f-150

Written By Anonymous, St. Charles, Missouri on Sunday, March 15, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this installation kit to install a Double Din head unit in my 05 F150 to replace the factory unit. The kit was relatively easy enough to assemble. I did not need the spacers behind the 4 mounting holes as the instructions indicated that I would and when I went to install the screws into the side of the stereo, none of the holes would line up properly with the holes on the installation kit. There is a ridge on the back edge of the kit that prevented the stereo from seating properly into the opening of the kit. With the help of a Dremel tool, I was able to remove the ridge to allow the stereo to seat properly, thereby allowing the screw holes to line up. With the exception of this modification, it is a decent kit. If you have a little bit of time and ingenuity, you can make it work. Not quite the plug and play that I would have expected.

Pros: Easy to assemble, inexpensive

Cons: Modifications necessary to provide better fitment of the stereo.

One size does not fit all.

Written By Paul, Minnesota on Sunday, March 15, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Opening in the faceplate is too large for Pioneer double din radios. Installed gasket pieces to sides of radio for tight fit and to keep radio centered on faceplate. Four of the eight side mount screw holes did not align up with the mounting holes in radio. Had to file out 4 holes to place screws in. Haven't installed it in my 2008 Ford F-150 truck yet. Don' know if there will be more challenges. Overall this product does not fit good without doing modifications. Maybe this is why they include them for free with a radio purchase.

Pros: Looks good

Cons: Poor fit

Not a perfect fit

Written By Don, California on Tuesday, March 10, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Pioneer AVH-X3600BHS radio was lightly smaller than opening, didn't fit evenly without a couple of homemade spacers. (earlier Sony fit like a glove). As others note, instructions unclear about need to remove rear tabs. Yount mount the HU, then find out that tabs have to be removed.

Pros: Looks good. Matched dash when installed

Cons: Unclear instructions

It could be better.

Written By Alden G, Stonewood, WV on Thursday, March 05, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It fits but not great the instructions were kinda vague and it just doesn't seem as nice as many of the others that I have gotten from Crutchfield.

Pros: It holds the unit ok

Cons: It has a lot of gaps cheesy feel to the plastic, the instructions should be taken out of every package and thrown away.

2005 F-150 upgrade

Written By Dean G, Florida on Sunday, March 01, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The finished product looks awesome. With that being said, there were a few issues. The instructions were, well, let's say vague. Vague should cover it in a PC sort of a way. If you are using it for a vehicle that isn't listed in the instructions be prepared to get a little creative and do some thinking. I eventually had to put the old radio next to the new one to figure out how to get it mounted properly. The other issue was that the plastic on the bracket is heavy and thick. Now this is a good thing because it makes it stronger. The bad thing about it is the mounting screws that came with the radio weren't long enough to get thru the thickness of plastic. A quick trip to the hardware store solved the issue but it was just one more thing that needed to be improvised.

Pros: Looks awesome and is good heavy gage plastic.

Cons: The instructions are useless. The plastic may be too thick for the mounting screws provided with your radio.

Looks Great, but ...

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Purchased this product from my 2008 F350 in conjunction with a Jensen V7020 head unit. The supplied directions are horrible so you'll need to apply some thought. The directions tell you not to cut the rear tabs off but it was obvious that the trim plate wouldn't fit. But once I sorted the directions out the product looks great.

Pros: Looks great and fits great

Cons: Directions are horrible

Not that great

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Directions were a lil vague , once I figured the cage around the kenwood radio needed removed and the plastic mounts on the kit needed removed install went rather quick. Grinded the back plastic tabs of with hand grinder It slid right in

Pros: Good fit. Looks nice when complete

Cons: Could use a lil better of directions to take out some of the guess work out. My 20 minute install could of taken less time . If the directions said which model vehicle needed tabs removed instead of bolting and u bolting then revolting together

May require some modification!

Written By JeffR, Michigan on Wednesday, January 07, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

As others have mentioned in their reviews, this product gets the job done and looks nice, but the instructions are a little vague in telling you that you might need to modify the side mounting brackets in order to get the assembly to fit into your dash. We installed into a 2009 Ford Fusion and couldn't figure out how to get stereo and dash kit to fit when all assembled. We had a professional finally do the install and he explained as others have mentioned that you have to trim the tabs off on the side brackets. Metra should mention something in their instructions for first time installers that there may need to be some modification if it's not a drop in fit for your vehicle!

Pros: Looks nice and performs as you would expect it to.

Cons: Could use a little more clarity in the instructions about modifying the bracket to fit different vehicles.

Did the trick.

Written By Bandit, Birmingham, AL on Saturday, January 03, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

End result looks great. I had to realign the radio a few times to make all the edges line up correctly and look acceptable (I'm OCD) with the factory trim, but the end result looks great! Watch the "spacers" if you must use them, they may fall off during the last phase of the install. I'm just saying. Haha.

Pros: Nice look. Does what it is supposed to do. Looks great in my 2004 F150.

Cons: It's not as simple as some people seem to want it to be. You have to be patient and work with it a little to make it perfect.

Perfect fit for F150

Written By Mark P., Georgia on Tuesday, December 30, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Used this with a Kenwood DDX492 installation in a 2007 Ford F150. The end product looks like it came from the factory and fits perfectly. The instructions were a little vague for my application and took a few minutes to figure it out, but when I did, the install was a breeze. The part that was not clear is you don't use the cage or the front trim that comes with the receiver and you need to screw this bracket directly into the sides of the receiver.

Pros: Perfect fit and works for my F150!

Cons: Instructions not clear, very generic for every application.

Fits my double din, with some trimming

Written By Nick F., Michigan on Tuesday, December 16, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

At first I thought this trim was plug and play for my 2005 f150. After doing some research I had to trim the rear 4 tabs (meant for other ford models) for the trim to fit. The instructions are pretty vague but its quite easy to see what you have to do in order for it to work. I used a bench grinder to remove the tabs carefully.

Pros: Works, looks nice, little to no gap on dash trim

Cons: Vague, unclear instructions, trimming

Fit was perfect to factory mounts. Only downside was for my vehicle I had to cut off the rear mounting tabs. Literally used a hacksaw then filed it down smooth.

Pros: Easy install

Cons: Have to cut off back tabs.

This kit made my job job about 3 times longer than it should take. The side pieces needed some serious modification for them to fit flush against the sides of my Blaupunkt double din and yhe front top panel is slightly too thin to fit flush the way the factory stereo looked...

Pros: It was free and there is no way i could have completed insrallation without it.

Cons: It didnt fut the way it should and required modification.

It fits 04 F150 XLT

Written By TheBurns, Moscow, PA on Monday, November 03, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is the second one of this exact install kit I own. The first one I got from a local tag store when I bought my first head unit. I had resold it and purchased my new head unit which came with this kit. As other reviewers have stated, the instructions are lacking. They are vague and not totally correct. It said I needed spacers, which I knew I didn't from the previous install. You do have to slice off the rear mounting tabs for the 04 F150 XLT. Mounting holes could be aligned better. I had to further mod the trim plate to flush my new head unit to the dash. This may be an issue with the design of my head unit? Take your time when assembling this kit. The mounting tabs only go on one way to the face trim plate. I would of liked to see this with a smooth satin finish to match the interior of my F150 but not a big deal. 4 stars for the lacking detail in the instructions. Overall good product.

Pros: Simple, fits, free with my purchase.

Cons: Lacking instructions, textured trim

Thank you Crutchfield for providing the perfect Dash kit to fit my vehicle, @ no extra cost. This kit fit my truck and made my install look clean & professional.

Pros: Included FREE with purchase of Head Unit.

Cons: None

Overall-- just what we needed.

Written By KylieC, Kansas on Friday, October 31, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

For the most part, this dash kit was exactly what we needed. It fit the stereo perfectly, but had mounting tabs on the back side of if that wouldn't allow the kit to go into the dash. They had to be cut off. The screws also weren't long enough to mount the kit to the dash, so we opted for self-tappers that we had on hand. But overall, good quality and the right fit for the truck and stereo.

Pros: Good quality, sturdy, fast shipping, good price.

Cons: Awkwardly placed mounting tabs, screws too short.

Written By Anonymous, Otay Ranch, CA on Tuesday, September 30, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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.

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.

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.

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.

A little more direction about the large brackets on the back would have been helpful. After I understood that, it fit great.

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
