Pros: fits perfect
Cons: surface a little dull and easy to scratch
Fit is,terrible, wish they were more unit specific, and didn't need to use the smaller trim piece, also the plastics mount brackets are flimsy, also the finish is terrible, had to paint just to cover the scuff mark from packaging
Good product, however the photo on the website seems to show the surface as being similar to the factory "crosshatch" finish, when in fact it is a flat dull finish. It's ok just a little disappointed. Instructions should also mention that you have to move the heating/AC control unit from the old faceplate to the new, and specify the torx-bit required in advance. Overall quality seems fine, with good fit.
Pros: easy to install, good overall fit
Cons: instructions should specify moving the air-control unit and torx-bit size.
Bought this for my 2011 Ford F150 and it fit perfectly. Very easy to install and looks great!
Pros: Fit's nicely and Looks great.
Easy to install. Instructions aren't the best.
Pros: Fits good.
Cons: Finish is no where as nice as factory.
Looks great and the brackets were easy to mount to the stereo and it fit in to my truck perfectly.
Pros: Easy to use Looks great
perfect fit, great people to work with.
Pros: Perfect fit
Looks good as factory
Pros: Good fit and finish
Great product. At first had a sub par finish on bevel. Talked to customer service and with in a day I had what I ordered.
Pros: Easy install. Direction spot on.
Product was an exact replacement for the center dash piece in my 2010 F-150. It fit perfectly and everything snapped back into place. The finish is Different from the factory piece, but looks nice as well.
Pros: Perfect fit. Looks factory
2014 Ford F-150 XL, replacing am/fm head unit with a kenwood touch screen DVD/MP3/siriusxm/rear camera upgrade. The main dash replacement piece was not needed, the stock one worked fine and looked a ton better, I have no intention to spray paint it a different color, otherwise it's been worth it. I only used the plastic bracket included, but ended up snapping one of the connections, don't tighten it down all the way
Pros: See review
Cons: See review
This is an awesome fit and the instructions were very good.
Dash Kit worked well.
Pros: Easy to install
Cons: Would of liked more color shades / choices; to match my trucks interior.
Great product and fast delivery.
Pros: Everything was a great experience.
This dash kit is an easy fit for my 2013 Ford F-150, just switch the buttons and it clips right in. I'd recommend this for anyone looking for a double din kit!
Pros: No adjustments needed and fits to factory
This is an easy to kit. Fit perfectly in my 2011 F150
Pros: Easy to install
Great looking product, fit exceptionally well. Excellent directions
Pros: Great fit
Cons: Color was a little off than the unit being replaced.
This kit fit perfectly into my dash opening and is similar in quality to the original. There are no gaps and all factory attachments fit perfectly. Unit is easy to remove if I need to make upgrades (i.e; cables for adding amps, etc...)
Pros: Everything fits perfectly
Cons: wish it came in chrome!
The outer framing plate fits perfect in my dash, looks close to the original.. about the only issue I had with it was the alignment with the 3 piece bracket on the stereo -- no reference marks or any way to gauge where you are with the outer frame .. had to set it in take put on the outer, take off, tweak positioning, on off etc. until I got a good symmetrical fit into the outer frame's opening as there is a small amount of gap. The two pieces overlap well but the "lip" on the inner frame definitely shows whether you got the stereo in there straight or not. Mainly a pain due to the Ford design in the center plate inter locking with the two side trim pieces, so several steps to get it securely seated. So hopefully your better at "eyeballing" the alignment on the stereo mounting brackets. But very good look and fit, ESPECIALLY for the price in my opinion. Transfers your climate controls from your original face plate so helps maintain the look. Only thing I can think of is the matte black version is smooth and all of my black surfaces in the truck have a texture to them so that makes it stand out slightly. But I think the stereo is a pretty good distraction from that.
Pros: Simple to install, does what it should
This was a perfect fit, mat finish looks better than stock, and the staff is very knowledgeable at Crutchfield.
Pros: Fits great and easy to put in.
This kit was easy to use, and fit well, but the smooth matte finish doesn't look the same as the textured finish I had in my truck with the stock stereo. It does look good, and still compliments the truck well, but I would've preferred matching texture.
Pros: Easy to use, looks good.
Cons: Doesn't match the truck's original plastic at all.
Nice fit other than the cigar lighter opening isn't the right size and the socket moves out a little.
I've used Metra products before, and they are direct replacments, with a few altercations on the user side, but great instructions are included.
Pros: makes my truck look good with the flat black finish
fits great and looks good. mat finish looks better than stock.
Pros: looks good and fits good
Cons: none, wouldn't change a thing
Excellent item, worked perfectly in my truck and very knowledgeable staff at Crutchfield.
Pros: great color
Well made Excellent fit and good looking for aftermarket dash piece
This was a perfect fit for my 2010 Ford F150 XL. It even matched the matte black of the rest of the dash perfectly.
Pros: perfect fit
not bad for the price,wish the fit was a little better and had different texture choices besides glossy and matte black...
Pros: easy install,easy instructions,
Cons: doesnt exactly match factory.factory had a textured look/feel but looks ok...radio doesnt fit flush,sets too much recessed and to much of an angle,will use longer screws and spacers to try to correct it....
Pros: looks good
Cons: screws were crappy had to use different ones they were to short and only grabbed two threads then stripped had to modify to fit my application but I made it work
factory look couldn't b happier
Pros: its great oem exact match
Fits perfect, easy to install, very happy.
Pros: Fits perfect and simple
Sorry but I just it would be a great product if it fix my 2012 f-150 but it didn't. Luckily I was able to use the original trim that came with the truck. It was a smaller than the original.
Great Gloss Look to my truck
Pros: High Gloss finish, compliments rest of truck interior
Cons: Doesn't exactly match the stock design
This product looks awesome. It looks just like the stock one. I was a little worried that it would not look good as back in the days dash kits looked cheap. This one far passes what I was expecting.
Fit was perfect, quality is good, finish did not match my FX4. Covered it with a carbon fiber vinyl film and it looks better than stock.
Looks good in my dash.
Pros: Great for the type of F-150 I have.
Cons: May have to paint it to match the interior color of your truck.
Gets the job done, but with the flat black look it appears very cheap and aftermarket when installed. I opted for the Metra High Gloss install kit instead.
Pros: Serves it's purpose, easy to mount
Cons: Very cheap looking, definitely not suggested for those who wish to maintain the OEM look.
This is a nice set, I prefer the flat black. The gloss is a bit over the top for me.
Pros: Fits well, plus with the double din opening I can have my Nav/dvd/
Cons: The finish is a matt black, the original finish on the OEM panel has a texture. It would of been nice to have the same finish.
Exactly what I thought it was going to be. Came with all necessary parts and instructions. Also was delivered faster then what was stated. I give this product 5 stars and are very happy with the services that Crutchfield offered.
Pros: New unopened product Quick delivery Easy to follow instructions
Pros: Holds radio good
Cons: Leaves a noticeable gap on bottom
Not crazy about the design of this kit. The bezel within the bezel made for a sloppy looking installation. Fit and finish were good. I would've preferred textured kit availability to match the stock look. In the end I replaced it with a Scosche kit which made for a cleaner look
Pros: Good fit
Cons: Flat finish and double bezel
Perfect fit for the in-dash head unit on my F150.
Fitment was exactly like stock, finish is just too plain for me so I used a 3M vinyl carbon fiber overlay to fix that.
Pros: Perfect fit
Cons: Wish it was available in at least gloss black finish
Very good build quality
Pros: Strong piece
Fits perfect. Looks kinda weird
Pros: Easy to install and fits perfect.
Cons: The after-market radio is actually mounted a bit recessed. The surface of the radio is about 1/2" deep into the dash face and not flush to the surface. No big deal just looks weird
Fits great easy to install and has a nice price
I gave this 5 stars but there are a few things I'm not crazy about the unit fit flawlessly just like OEM wish they made touchscreen openings in various sizes to match the different sizes of the touchscreens available.
Pros: Fits like OEM
Cons: Fill boarder for use with smaller touchscreens and texture of the fill boarder didn't match the finish of the finish of the face plate. The face plate itself did match the finish of the OEM climate controls.
This replacement faceplate fits great, and is good quality. I have it in and out several times due to other issues, and it still looks and works fine.
Pros: Fit and quality
Perfect fit. Works like it should
Pros: Easily paintable
This kit was easy to use and straight forward as far as installation goes.
Pros: Clear instructions and easy to install
Cons: Does not match factory texture, but looks acceptable.
Almost too easy, this is a great product.
Pros: Step by step instructions.
This is the third vehicle I have used one of these kits in over the past couple years. Two were used in grandaughters Mustangs and this one used in my F-150 FX4. I attempted to locate a glossy trim panel Ford terms as "luxury interior" trim but failed. This flat black still fit in nicely with minimum esthetic loss. I can't imagine anyone putting in an after market head unit without one of these kits.
Pros: Fits great.
Cons: Couldn't find one identical to my interior.
Fits like it should, easy to follow instructions, no customization was required to make it fit. It simply works as it was designed to. on a side note, removing the airbag and traction control buttons from the other faceplate was a pain in the rear
Pros: Works like it should
