Basic plastic frame that does the job. No gaps, sturdy enough.

Cons: None

decent product

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This product fit perfectly in the 08 Dodge Avenger I installed it in. The directions weren't all that good but it wasn't difficult to figure out. It's a solid piece that is well constructed.

Pros: well built and fits perfectly

Cons: lousy instructions

Works as advertised

Written By Rob, Maryland on Saturday, December 20, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The instructions were a little off for the Jeep installation. The instructions had me removing a bracket inside the dash. Fortunately I had done some prior research and I knew that the bracket only had to be removed for a double din unit. Other than that the finished product looks great.

Pros: Easy to install

Cons: Instructions a tad off.

Cheaply made/Horrible fit

Written By Jim, Temecula, CA. on Thursday, July 24, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Let me start by saying that I am very picky about how my vehicle looks as well as how the radio sounds (Dodge Nitro). I have been designing and installing my own vehicle sound systems for the last 25 years. The product might be just fine for someone less picky, but not me. This kit is cheaply made and, to me, that equals incredibly ugly. The small pocket under the radio mount warps due to the plastic being too thin. The bolt on mounting clips do not stay "clipped" in place. If you try using the radio mounting sleeve with the kit trim ring there are huge gaps in the fit allowing you to see into your dash. If you use the radio trim ring, those gaps are even more obvious. If you do manage to get the radio in, you just about have to hammer the dash bezel back in place and then it feels like you will break it pulling it back out. Didn't like this product at all. I'm just going to put my plain old factory radio back in because at least it fits properly and looks nice. Sending both the radio I bought and the kit back.

Pros: Works for someone who isn't picky about aesthetics

Cons: Cheaply made and flimsy. Poor fit (at least in my Nitro). Never got the radio mounted exactly right.

Bam! In less than a minute, I installed my new Pyle radio! I tried to find the correct one at Autozone, PepBoys and AdvanceAutoParts with NO LUCK. Then I remembered Crutchfield! They had EXACTLY what I needed for a very reasonable price, and delivered on the DOT!


Cons: NONE!

Written By Sakatman, Ruskin, fl on Wednesday, January 08, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very nicely done with smooth edges. Came with everything and all the holes lined up. Looks almost like factory. I did however have a small issue with the radio not wanting to stay in the kit. I wound up having to put some foam tape under the plastic locking tabs so as to put enough tension on them to hold the radio in place.

Pros: Professional quality look

easy install

A little disappointed

Written By Bill, North Pekin, IL on Tuesday, November 12, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Fits and matches well with dash in my 2010 Dodge Ram.. What is a little disappointing is how the stereo looks in the dash kit. Does not fit as well as previous Metra kits I have purchased for other vehicles. There is a gap between the lower part of the radio and the kit. Not really terrible but not the quality I expected.

Pros: Fits well in the dash

Cons: Stereo does not fit well in dash kit.

Better than I expected

Written By TeB, Hawaii on Tuesday, October 29, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I used this to install a new JVC deck in my 2004 Dodge Ram. At first I was a little skeptical that this plastic piece was going to hold my stereo in place. But once I put the deck in, I saw how it worked with my new deck, and it was perfect. It looks like factory OEM gear, and I couldn?t be more happy! THANK YOU CRUTCHFIELD!

Pros: Easy to install, factory look.

Cons: None

Could be sturdier with a cleaner trim

Written By Scott, Nashville, TN on Monday, August 26, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Functionally it works and it does fit the opening in the dash well. However, it falls short on two important points. First, the pocket below the headunit is not sturdy enough. It has a noticeable bow to the top of the pocket as the HU's weight presses down on it. Second, the trim around the HU itself is not as clean as I would like. Using either the stock Alpine trim piece or the one that came with the dash kit you can see some of the gaps and/or HU cage around the DIN opening. I think this is because the kit is trying to work for both single and double DIN units. A purpose-built one would likely not have these issues. I will likely need to fabricate a custom piece out of ABS and figure out a way to connect it. I think a bit more CAD work is in order for this kit...

Pros: It fits and holds the HU securely. Provides for a pocket, but it is of limited use. It's free.

Cons: Pocket is not sturdy enough and trim around DIN opening is not clean.

This install kit does what it is inteded for, but is just cheap plastic. Make sure that the head unit is installed in this thing tightly or you will hear noise going over every bump.

Pros: Easy install

Cons: Cheaply made

This install kit looks very nice in the dash of my truck. It looks like it was installed by a pro! Its a great kit and it was free with the purchase of my new stereo. You can't beat that kudos to crutchfield.

Pros: Free! Easy to install. It looks great. This is a very solid kit.

Cons: None!!!

In-dash Receiver Kit

Written By Phil, Queen Valley, AZ on Thursday, February 21, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This kit would not allow the head unit of my Sony CDX-GT700HD to swing down enough. The knob on the radio would hit the bottom of the bezel. I ended up cutting the entire bottom strip off the bezel and it came out OK and the head unit can swing down fully now. I read reviews here about the top of the tray sagging down so prior to installation I drilled a hole through the center of the opening and put a #12 screw through it and as I was feeding the screw in I place a piece of vinyl tubing went over the threads to act as a spacer to keep the tray from sagging. Works good and doesn't get in the way that much.

Pros: Looks OK....even after the modifications.

Cons: Flimsy plastic with no real structure around the tray for support. The radio bezel interfered with the head unit knob when opened. Both were easily fixed.

Easy to use and looks good!

Can't complain when its free. Fit perfectly and looks fine. Many have said it doesn't look professional. If you want professional you should stay factory. I think it looks like a great aftermarket part and couldn't be happier.

Cons: It bends easy so take care of it.

It fits well and there are not really any other options but I am a bit disappointed in the final look of the unit.

Written By Zak, Danville, KY on Sunday, May 22, 2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The install kit fit perfectly, but bends a little bit when finally installed. I have taken it out 3 times to try and see if it was my error, and it's not. The plastic is just cheap and bends when under pressure from the head unit. Makes it looks a little unprofessional when finally installed. BUT.. the local car audio place wanted $50 for it and Wal-Mart doesn't sell it. The bending factor is my only complaint, so henceforth, 4 out of 5 stars.
