Metra 99-3043 Dash Kit
1996 GMC Sonoma
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I'm disappointed that the tuner bracket takes up two spaces. I was expecting it to only take up one space which would have allowed me to be able to install a second pocket to put some more of my stuff into. It does not seem like this would be a difficult thing to accomplish now that I have seen inside that dash area. Except for that the bracket and installation works well. Not sure if it was engineered into the tuner bracket by Metra but somehow a place on the back of the bracket winds up supporting the rear of the tuner. Makes me feel better about stability.
Pros: Gives great confidence that the tuner installation will stay put as expected.
Cons: Takes up two spaces. This is very adversive and disappointing. Probably has more to do with the available space in the Sonoma dash behind the head unit but the tuner bracket sticks out quite a bit and the steering mounted gear-shift just misses it. Instructions leave a bit to be desired but I usually over-install anyway just to make sure it's mounted very stable.
