Does not fit application Cructchfield says it does, but otherwise good

Written By Dave C., Richland WA on Friday, June 20, 2014
 
This mounting bracket is good quality, good plastic molding and fits the dash well.

However, Crutchfield said it fits the 95 S-10 with a stereo with slide out video screen and it does NOT.

The mounting bracket places the stereo where the slide out screen hits the shift lever and that causes vehicle control problems.
Crutchfield response on Tuesday, July 01, 2014
Thanks for your review. Stereos with flip-out screens will be a problem for S-10s that have a floor mounted shifter. We have updated our database to warn future customers.

Works as Advertised

Written By Juan M, North Carolina on Tuesday, November 27, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This kit worked perfectly and was fairly simple to install. It takes a little bit of getting used to because of the color and the protrusion. But the protrusion is because of the 1997 Blazer design, not this kit.
Pros:
All needed parts were included and install was fairly easy
Cons:
My interior is grey and this kit is black. It looks a bit odd.

when i placed my order with crutchfield i told the sales rep that i needed everything for the dash. my order came quickly (like aiways ) but didnt include the dash pocket. so i ordered one from another retailer and sent a e mail to crutchfield and and later that day i got a e mail back saying to send them a copy of my receipt. crutchfield reimbursed me for the new part and shipping ! and this is why i use crutchfield
Pros:
sturdy and looks nice
Cons:
does not include pocket !

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The kit included everything that you need for a quick installation and a perfect fit. The instructions were 100% correct. Installed in a 1997 Chevy blazer and looks better than the factory setup.

Does the job

Written By Later Rat, AZ on Wednesday, February 09, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I bought this product for My 1997 Chevy S10 2.2L installation was a breeze nothing super
hard anyone can do it. Shipment as always with Crutchfield was fast, the price i believe was
good, the quality of the item is good, not the best but good. I do however did not like so much
the fact that the stereo now sticks out a litttle further and is not flush with the rest of the dash
but is ok, is something one can get used to.

Looks good when done

Written By Forcecon, Washington State on Wednesday, October 13, 2010
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Kind of a pain to install this in my 1995 S10 but more Chevrolet's fault. Instructions
were pretty good but I don't recommend this install for a first timer...have to take lots
of interior panels out in order to release the factory stereo and in my case had to
rewire all the speakers (wires to doors were shorted out and were no factory speakers
in dash location). Nothing terribly complex but more work than expected. Very happy
with it now. Even though vehicle requirements result in the stereo sticking out a
bit from the dash it is still a good looking installation.

97 gmc Jimmy

Written By sprague, Attlebor Falls, MA on Monday, June 22, 2009
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Installed a new radio and used this dash kit in a 97 GMC Jimmy. It worked great,tight clean fit. It has been a pleasure to deal with Crutchfield. Put your make, model and year in for your car and pick what you want and everything else you may need pops up as well. Pick what you need and then it all comes with a vehicle specific manual that is step by step which makes it fast and easy. I could not have had a better experience.

Metra 99-3043 In-dash Receiver Kit

Written By scheibel, St. Louis, MO on Sunday, January 25, 2009
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Installed in a 97 Sonoma pickup. The kit is black and my trim is gray. Doesn't look bad but doesn't match. I had to trim one area to clear a bolt on adjacent part of the dash. The kit doesn't support the back of the stereo like the OEM installation did. This hasn't caused a problem but seems like it wouldn't give enough support. Has been installed for 2 months and no problems other than these.

That's why you deal with ONLY Crutchfield

Written By akaula, Molokai, Hawaii on Wednesday, November 12, 2008
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This is one of MANY reasons to deal ONLY with crutchfield. I purchased a Alpine deck, Alpine iPod connector and a pair of speakers, and the adapters, installation guide etc are FREE. It worked perfectly in my 94 Sonoma Ext. Cab and my son helped me install my gear. *Son is 3 years old*.

Very Sastisfied

Written By Kage0113, Laramie, WY on Friday, September 12, 2008
 
I got my new aftermarket player from a friend, but no where in town sold an install kit for my 96 S-10 Blazer. I was very happy to find this item on Crutchfield. It fits PERFECTLY! It slides a very little bit BUT its not from this kit, it's because I don't have the metal rim that fits around the cd player so that's my fault. But even without it it only moves when I force it to. Product looks and fits great. Recommend to everyone
