Metra 95-8235 Dash Kit

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
The metra in dash kit looks excellent compared to stock dash and blends in very well. The kit meshes well with the new stereo and the stock clock/ emergency piece. The kit fits right over the stereo and the brackets work well in the stock bolt holes. Very good design

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Fits well in my 13 tacoma- looks like it belongs (color is a little off- more matte finish than the stock) but the stereo is mounted using the four screws per side that come with the head unit, the thick plastic brackets make this a challenge- screws barely engage--- it would be nice if it mounted with the slide- in DIN cage like some others--- you need to be really sure you've got everything working and hooked up before snapping the top dash piece in............The head unit mounts to the brackets, screw that into the vehicle, then the front piece snaps in place. Looks good but the plastic clips don't hold quite as well as the factory mount-- rattles a little and don't lose the stupid plastic clips that hold the Toyota dash together... The finished product is worth the effort.

Also without using the DIN cage mounting method, it is difficult to know where to mount the side pieces because it's hard to gauge the depth --- where it will be in the dash when mounted - to far in or to far out? Took a few tries to find the right set of holes to use with the mounting plate to have the head unit be flush when done.

One bit of advice --- look at the instructions that come with this kit - removing the hazard / airbag light from the stock part is difficult - without breaking it, this part has to be taken off and put into the new mounting--- the hardest part next to getting the new double din unit into the limited dash space...... All in all a good fit but could be a little better.
Looks like it belongs there
A little off from factory color and the Plastic on side brackets is pretty thick - stock is metal, not a huge deal BUT some head units need you to use the use the screws that come with it to mount it --- they are very short (would work with metal) so with the thicker plastic, they just barely hold on

I was surprised to see how well this fit. It is the same exact color as the factory dash, and it fits flawlessly.
great fit, great look

Not so good!

Written By RichardF, Casper, WY on Sunday, November 24, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
The fit and finish is just not there! The replacement dash piece is glossy and the original equipment was dull, so it does not match the remainder of the vehicle. The dash piece does not snap in as tight as the original and so leaves a gap on the bottom and top. The kit did not contain enough body clips for the reinstall and so I had to remove some from the original piece.

Nice product but have issue

Written By Chris, Clearwater, Fl on Monday, September 16, 2013
Although this is a very nice looking/working product I have an issue on two fronts. I was told by Crutchfield that this would fit the Pioneer FH-X700BT unit I purchased. It does cover the unit but isn't wide enough to allow the unit to have its face come through. So the unit actually sits behind this product almost giving it a "unfinished" or "unprofessional" look.
- nice looking/working unit
- may not fit the aftermarket stereo as stated

1 question already asked

is there any dash kits that will work with my 2013 Tacoma with the Kenwood DNX890HD? This kit sent with my order doesn't work at all. You would have to cut too much out to get it too work. Any Idea what I can do would hate to have to return my order. Thank You Jeff V [ Jeff  Jan 03, 2014 ]
