Metra 99-6511 In-dash Receiver Kit

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

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

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.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
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.

Not Thrilled

Written By Bob, Pa on Thursday, October 20, 2011

It fits well and there are not really any other options but I am a bit disappointed in the final look of the unit.
Cons:
When mounting the radio it is recessed witch does not make for a professional look. It does fit well just wish it lined up better .

At least it was free!

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.
