Need Some Relief

Written By CCrane, Wichita, KS on Wednesday, December 25, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The unit fits well int he Ford F250 we bought it for but there are no reliefs in the sides for the deck removal tools so it's pretty difficult to get the stereo out of the adapter once installed.
Pros:
Fits dash well, easy install.
Cons:
Hard to remove deck once installed as deck removal tools don't fit between the deck and the adapter.

This radio does everything is says it will do. My iPhone syncs easily and it can read my contacts for caller ID. The mic is clear and nobody has asked me if I'm on a speaker phone.
Pros:
Easy to install, easy to pair with phone and sounds much better than my stock radio.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This installation kit worked out fine. After figuring out that there were parts for two different types of install, and picking one, I found the install easy, and it looks fine installed in my Focus. I used it to install a Pioneer DEH-X5500HD in a 2007 Focus wagon.
Pros:
Fits the car and radio just fine.
Cons:
Intall instructions are a bit hard to read, and not as clear as I would have wanted for the two install options.

It's OK

Written By PaulS, Chicago, IL on Friday, June 28, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
It's cheap, but it works. It's all plastic, unlike the heavy aluminum mounting bracket of the original Ford/Delco radio. Unfortunately, you have to use the snap-in bezel that came with it, which was not a perfect fit, and I had to sand the plastic a little to get it to snap in perfectly. Also, unfortunately, the bezel that came with my new car stereo, which was better looking, would not fit and had to be removed. Also, you have to use the side rails to put it all together, but neither this kit nor the new car stereo came with the necessary screws to attach them. Other than that, it works, and fills the old hole nicely.
Pros:
It works, fills the old hole nicely.
Cons:
It's kinda cheap, no screws to mount the side rails.

Functional if not reassurring

Written By John C, Rathdrum, ID on Monday, April 22, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This should have been a 20 minute mounting job except that a crucial piece of instruction did not get included. I was leery of the plastic mounting brackets, but once everything was put together and installed it seems to be secure and solid enough. This is a good thing since there are not a whole lot of options available in the way of mounting kits. Once in the dash, it is functional, bland and looks a bit generic and plastic, but still quite acceptable. Time will tell of the plastic screw mounts will hold up to the rigors of automotive use.
Pros:
Fits Easy to assemble, if all the instructions are included.
Cons:
All plastic, including screw mounts Does nothing to enhance the dash or receiver's appearance

I was disappointed that I could not chose if the storage area could be on the top or the bottom when installed. I would have liked to have it at the top but does look good with it below. I also was not happy with the way the radio mounted. It sat back too far in the mount and looked "goofy". I took alot of time to modife the filler plate provided to get the radio mount to fit inside it and sit flush.

shake rattle and roll

Written By Scot, Howell, MI on Friday, May 08, 2009
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
My application was an F-350. This part can't be the best available unless everything has gotten this cheap. The plastic is too flimsy and the opening is not filled by the part. There is 2-3mm around the entire part that allows the flimsy plastic to oscillate and make the radio display unreadable. I have another of this same part that was bought from crutchfield about 8 years ago and that one is solid. But - it's going in another vehicle.

Questionable Fit

Written By burt, Kingston, wa on Tuesday, January 27, 2009
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The dash kit fits the dash quite well. It is flush and looks good, however, the Alpine HU fit was a bit different. I toyed with this and could not make it any better but the HU is recessed slightly, not flush at all. Not a drastic problem but the fit as far as the HU being flush with the dash kit is a tad annoying.

I picked this up after I realized that the dash opening on my '05 SuperDuty was different than my '00 SuperDuty. Installation was pretty simple. Quality seems good and it works like it's suppose to.

It's Good In My '05 Focus

Written By Kristine, Central Jersey on Tuesday, November 04, 2008
 
So I got this free with my radio order. It's pretty flush in my car; a little tiny bit crooked but on my own fault. I don't get any vibrations or movement like others have experienced; I bent a whole bunch of those tabs back! I also didn't need the brackets to install it (they wouldn't possibly fit!). It was my first install and I'm pleased with this kit.

Nice fit

Written By Michael, Littlefield, Tx on Friday, May 09, 2008
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This kit looks good
and works great for
a 07 F250 with an
alpine 9855 head
unit. I agree with
some of the other
reviewers about the
head unit not
feeling very secure
in the
adapter/bracket.

My solution:
1. Secure the head
unit brackets to the
head unit like
normal.
2. Slide the head
unit in the main
bracket, doing a dry
fit making sure that
the head unit sits
correctly in the
main bracket.
3. I took an awl
(like the ones on a
swiss army knife you
could also use
a drill but, be
careful not to split
the plastic) and
drilled a hole in
the side
of the main bracket
(the part that
attaches to the
dash) in line with
one
of the screws that
was attaching the
head unit bracket to
the head unit.
I then took the
head unit out and
removed the screw
that i had drilled a
hole for. I slid
the head unit back
in the main bracket.
5. Last I took some
washers to fill the
gap between the main
bracket and
the head unit
bracket. I found
some longer screws
(make sure they
are not too long
cause you can break
your head unit) and
put this screw
though the main
bracket hole I
drilled, though the
washers, though the
head unit bracket,
and in to the head
unit making it all
one piece.

I did this for both
sides of the
bracket.
This makes it attach
like the factory
unit and is very
secure.

I wish i could
attach a picture,
cause it would be
worth a thousand
words.
I'm not sure if this
will work for other
vehicles, but it
should work for all
F250s like the 07
model.

I have to agree with the fact that it needs to be better anchored or more sturdy. Rough gravel road really makes it shake and rattle. Nice fit easy install. Going to see if I can beef it up a little bit.

Metra 99-5808 In-dash Receiver Kit

Written By jake, GA on Wednesday, January 24, 2007
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The Receiver kit does fit, however it needs to have better anchors (possibly metal) to hold it in place with the truck screw holes. It shakes a lot going over rough terrain while the factory radio did not. Also, this kit needs to be reversible, so that you can put the radio on the bottom and the pocket on top. I believe that would solve most of the vibration.

Does Just What it Says It Will Do

Written By Larry, Yarmouth, Maine on Friday, November 24, 2006
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This kit fit perfectly and, as is usual with Crutchfield products, it took longer to unpack it than install it. The only concern I have is that the built-in Family Entertainment System (rear seat DVD player) no longer functions with this kit. I called technical support which told me there was no way to connect the FES to the new radio with that kit and no other kits were available. I was able to wire around the radio to get the wireless headphones working with the DVD player, but it no longer plays through the stereo. Bottom line: think twice about changing the radio if you have a Ford Family Entertainment System.

Fits pretty well. Not perfectly flush, but hardly noticeable. Got here quickly. Texture of the plastic of the kit is different from that of the dash, but the color is dead on, so it looks pretty good. Definitely beats that giant double-DIN Ford AM/FM radio.
