So so fit in my2013 Tacoma double cab

Written By Kevin K, Nebraska on Wednesday, November 18, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Not as good a fit as I had hoped - probably a 1/8th inch gap all around. Works, but nothing like factory Fit and finish.

Pros: Works (fills the hole)

Cons: Not a great fit

Metra dash kit

Written By Randy, Winchester va on Monday, November 09, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The kit looks good the only thing that I had to do was it would not fit at first I had to grind down the back lip to get it to snap in all the way.

Pros: Looks good and fits around the head unit well.

Cons: Had to grind it down

Bad fit for Pioneers

Written By chief, Texas on Monday, September 28, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Really poor fit for my head unit (Pioneer AVH-X4700BS). Adjusted the bracket numerous times to try to make it work and after failing to do so called Crutchfield and the tech suggested that I file it down (not a knock on Crutchfield) . Spent ~1.5 hours shaving the dash kit on 3 sides. When I was finally able to get the dash kit to snap in, there was a huge gap on top between the head unit and the dash kit (did not shave the top). Does not look factory at all. Very frustrating when you think you're about to be done with your install and you're dealt with a dash kit that doesn't fit!

Pros: Snaps in securely after shaving the heck out of it for it to fit my head unit. Paint matches factory.

Cons: Horrible fit with my head unit and possibly all pioneers. Required shaving on 3 sides and still has a huge gap on top. Going to have to spend extra money to try a Scosche kit to see if it's any better.

Waste of time sending it

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Waste of a piece of plastic. Double din won't fit in it unless you shave off some of it. Looks cheap too. Just buy a scosche one and save yourself the headache.

Pros: Free

Cons: Everything about it

Funky fit

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This thing is a pain to install, IF you have a detatchable/moving faceplate (i.e., Pioneer AVH 4100NEX). The reason is that the fit of the mounting bracket isn't perfect, so the edges of your headunit will be TIGHT inside the dash kit - if it rubs the faceplate, the pioneer HU freaks out! It took me about 4 hours to get the thing right because it takes about 20 minutes to remove the headunit, adjust the bracket, and shove it back in with all the wires... I did that about 10 times. Other metra dash kits I have experience with didn't take this much wiggling to fit.

On top of that, part of the finish was marred right out of the package. I'm giving this thing 3 stars because it's not very easy for a moron like me to install :)

Pros: The color matches perfectly!

Cons: Don't expect to install this in 20 minutes.

Metra 95-8235 Dash Kit

Written By Anonymous, Denver, CO on Monday, September 08, 2014

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


Written By Andy b, Dallas tx on Wednesday, August 13, 2014

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.

Pros: Looks like it belongs there

Cons: 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

Fits and looks perfect

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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

Pros: great fit, great look

Cons: none

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.

Pros: - nice looking/working unit

Cons: - may not fit the aftermarket stereo as stated
