Perfect color, texture is different than the stock one but not an issue. Have not installed it yet as I am waiting for my stereo to come in, only reason I didn't give it 5 stars.

Pros: Color and apparent fit

Cons: Different texture than stock.

First time installer, learned a couple things

Written By DanP, Florida on Friday, September 18, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Not having installed an aftermarket head unit, I learned a couple of things. My replacement head unit, a relatively inexpensive Pioneer, comes with a "cage" already installed over the chassis. Not realizing this and trying to follow the instructions, I was trying to use the plastic things that come with this to attach to the head unit before inserting. Of course it didn't fit and I was a little puzzled until I looked a little closer at the head unit and realized what the directions were describing. I literally didn't use any of the "additional" stuff that came with this piece. Just the main big piece and the little cubby piece. I just fit the head unit into the top open bay and four metal locking tabs secured it perfectly. Also, if you have the stock "non Rockford Fosgate" stereo in the Xterra, do youself a favor and take the A/C vents off using the four easily engaged release tabs. It'll make getting the stock unit out easier.

Pros: Does exactly what it needs to do at a great price

Cons: not a thing

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Used this dash kit on my 09 Frontier a few years ago and recently installed it on my '12 Frontier. Perfect fit each time and very easy to work with. Only small issue I had both times was cutting out the divider in the middle to make it a Double Din opening. Other than that its a nice product and fits well.

Pros: Fits perfectly and easy to reassemble A/C unit and new HU into the kit.

Cons: cutting out the divider to make it double-din is a little tricky... maybe its just me.

Written By AndyR, New Jersey on Friday, April 10, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I mounted a double DIN unit using this installation kit in my 2012 Nissan Xterra; As several others mentioned, the color matches quite well however the kit has a smooth finish as opposed to the textured OEM finish. Personally I don't have a real issue with this however some people might. Also, the small frame that snaps into the double DIN opening isn't totally secure - hasn't fallen out however you can tell it is not a perfect fit.

The unit I mounted however seems pretty secure and the overall look and feel is quite good imho.

Pros: - Easy to install - Double DIN unit well secured - Overall fit and finish quite good.

Cons: - Factory OEM finish not precise - Thin plastic snap-in frame for double DIN opening not a perfectly snug fit

Good, could be great

Overall the unit is pretty nice....stereo unit fit nicely and seems secure, the finish is not like the factory finish (not that big a deal)....but the ventilation control buttons seem a little they don't let the buttons operate properly....I'm going to take another look to see if there is anything that can be done with that...came free with the stereo...not sure if there are better options, but all in all, not bad.

Written By G.F.C., California on Monday, December 15, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These Metra's always seem to deliver with factory screw placement, fit, and finish. I wasn't sure about the change in colour on mine (from charcoal to light grey), but it worked nicely in my 2012 frontier.

Pros: Exactly like factory fit, finish, and feel.

Cons: It has 2 less anchor points than the factory and causes the screw on the very top to vibrate the dash trey. Will be installing a nylon washer to see if that will rectify the problem.

Looks good

Written By Racer, Jackson TN on Saturday, December 13, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It looks good in the dash with a double din. I have a Nissan Frontier. It doesn't have the textured finish like the factory but once I got it in it didn't bother me as much as I though it would. The small trim around the radio face could be better, it fits a little lose. It certainly makes the radio look like it fits in my truck better than previous aftermarket installs I've had.

Pros: Easy to use Looks good

Cons: small trim a little lose and no texture

Nice Kit

Written By Walt, TX on Saturday, September 27, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Good overall. Did not have same texture as OEM panel, but made of nice material and still blends in well. The single DIN ISO mounting brackets did not snap in as positively as I would have liked. It tried to pop out twice before I got it mounted to the vehicle. Using the radio bracket instead might have actually been more secure. A metal strap to mount the rear of the chassis to the dash frame was not mentioned in the instructions, but might be a good idea on the ISO mount.

Pros: Nice appearance & fit, decent instructions, well made overall.

Cons: Single DIN ISO mount could be stouter.

Great piece. Solid build and the matte black finish looks great with the rest of the dash.

Pros: Fits perfectly into the dash, very easy installation.

Cons: The piece that snaps in around the face of the headunit doesn't seem to snap all the way into place. It is secure, but doesn't look flush all the way around.

Written By Pete, Northern Virginia on Saturday, April 05, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Product fits vehicle properly. Seems a bit flimsy compared to the factory part, and also the recommended color is a quite a bit lighter than the factory color. Not a huge issue, but probably a little bit more effort could have been done to find a closer (darker) color. Other than that, no complaints.

Pros: fits properly, easy to install

Cons: flimsy, grey color is not as dark as the factory Xterra interior.

2010 frontier with integrated climate controls

Written By Bryant, El Paso, TX on Wednesday, November 06, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I thought it was going to be very cheaply made and fitment would be way off from the reviews. Everything fit perfect from the climate controls down to the panel. You just have to align the spacing left to right on the panel before you screw it down.

Pros: Great product, even though it's a smooth flat black. It's not noticeable.

Cons: No texture like the oem Frontier panel.

This mount kit has a different finish than the existing dash, it's smooth instead of the textured existing, nothing major just a personal preference, the real issue with the kit is the double din trim plate, it did not fit for me and constantly pops off, without it I have a nice gap.

Pros: It works

Cons: Does not match existing texture and double din trim plate fits poorly.

If you are taking the stock head unit out of most vehicles, a standard double or single din unit won't fit without this adaptor. Looks great!

Fit is nowhere as close as factory. Does not fit centered, gap on right side big enough to have to put black tape on the inside to hide it. Otherwise, installation was straightforward.

Changed out the factory radio in my 2009 Suzuki Equator. This kit fit extremely well and the directions were on the mark. No problem going from a double din to a single din mount. Extra storage pocket included is nice place to store my iphone while playing through the new stereo. The grey color is lighter than original, but does not stand out or look ugly. Got used to it very quickly. Other than color variance, this scores a 5 to me.

Pros: Excellent fit, with great instructions.

Cons: Very minor, but neither color option is an exact match.

Written By DanE, Meridian, ID on Monday, April 22, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Initially installed this with my AVH-P8400BH, and immediately ordered a different brand (carries other products by this company, but not the dash left the name out). The trim ring provided with this kit was bowed due to being so thin, and when installed, still left substantial gaps around the chassis/face of the receiver. The mounting did not have any attach points back to the dash, so it depends on the dash pop-tabs for stability and security (unlike the 'other brand' that screws in to the factory dash mounts). The plastic mounting plates (that hold the receiver to the fascia) are flimsy, and the only things holding the receiver into position (vibration is a certainty). Pretty consistent to what I've read on other forums/sites. Gave it 1 star since it was included with my receiver purchase.

The 'other brand' is nearly a perfect mounting match. Was almost able to use the factory metal receiver mounts, but ended up using the plastic ones included with their kit. Seems to hold the receiver stable, and rock solid mounting to dash. Am happy with the new kit.

Pros: Free

Cons: Flimsy construction, lacks secure mounting to the vehicle dash, lacks secure mounting of receiver

Written By DM, Cleveland, OH on Friday, March 29, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

If you have a grey interior on your car, get a black trim kit, it will look better. I bought both and grey never seems to match right but black will go with anything. I ended up keeping the black and returning the grey kit. I just wish they would be able to match the facytory look to include the dimples. I even thought about attempting to dremel my factory panel and try to rig my new head unit to work with it. Oh well, black does look decent enough. Get black.

Pros: Black looks good but not as good as factory.

Cons: Doesn't look as good as factory. Grey never matches right, get black.

Easy to install. Quality is pretty good.

Pros: Easy to install.

Cons: Quality is pretty good. Missing some of the slots that the oem part uses to attach to the dash, so there are some squeeks and rattles. The pocket below the reciever (single din) is a little warped or bowed. I plan to use a heat gun to bow it the opposite way and may do some hot gluing where it won't show.

Ok, but...

Written By MikeM, Salina, KS on Saturday, February 02, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

i'm pretty ambivalent about this kit, which came with am DD size JVC head unit from Crutchfield. The kit is simple, and I thought the plastic was thick and durable. Mounted fine in the original factory opening, and I had no issue remounting the HVAC controls back in the unit. I mounted my radio using the side plastic supports that came with this kit, and the radio is very firmly attached to the dash.

So, what's not to like. My issues were:

- The instructions really leave something to be desired. It goes through how you remove the factory radio from the original frame, but if you use the plastic brackets to support the new radio (which I think you have to... the brackets mount to the black trim using screw points that don't exist on this casting), then you don't need to take the original radio out of the original frame. - The texture of the plastic does not match the original - the original has a "weave" pattern to it, some say carbon fiber look. This is matte plastic. It matches the dash, something I worried about, but does not pop. - I'm stuck with a gap at the top and bottom of my radio where I can see into the dash when the sun is at my back. Not much, but enough to annoy me. Haven't figured out how to fix this one. The trim bezel for the radio won't work, since I'd have to had used the whole radio mounting ring, which from what I can tell won't fit in this casting.

I'm not disappointed enough to redo it, but wish there were a better option.

Pros: Reasonably strong, everything fits (except as noted below), color matches original piece. No concern radio will fall out now that it's installed.

Cons: Gap around radio is annoying, wish it was textured like the original. Concerned it'll show fingerprints like crazy.

I read the reviews on this dash kit before ordering my receiver and figured its free and if it doesn't work out I'll buy one of the other dash kits. Man was I pleasantly surprised! Everything went together real smooth and tight. Alignment was spot on, no complaints, and the thing is strong. I mounted a DD chassis in the unit. Yes, it is smooth and not textured like the OEM piece, but it looks great in my truck and I'm very meticulous when it comes to upgrades and mods on my Frontier.

Pros: Strong Alignment is spot on Excellent color match to OEM black

Cons: Not textured, but not a show stopper for me

Nissan Frontier Dash Install Kit

Written By RonT, S.E.Georgia on Wednesday, December 26, 2012

It works, but not very high quality. Let me start by giving kudos to Crutchfield as the first one I rec'd was defective (incomplete mold) and they replaced it for free and over-nighted the replacement. The unit itself is not much to brag about. It fit the dash poorly and I filled the gaps with black adhesive backed felt (I used it to line the storage box beneath the radio too). I also found the plastic clips that held the radio in place to be very weak and would allow the radio to shift forward. I disassembled the kit and riveted the plastic pieces together to stop the movement. If another choice of Install Kit were available, I would have chosen it.

Pros: Holds radio in place.

Cons: Looks cheap, fits poorly.

Good not great

Written By MIKE, Davis ca on Sunday, September 09, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Everything fit well except the trim ring for the DD unit. I was concerned about the fact that the unit would not mount to the metal like the factory one did but it is surprisingly secure in this mount. The wiring harness provided by Crutchfield has no ground (black wire says subaru only) the factory unit grounds by the attachments to the metal so you will need to run. A ground wire but the screws that are removed from the metal support will easily hold a ring terminal so it isn't that big of a deal.

Pros: It fits and looks good minus the trim ring for head unit

Cons: DD trim ring could fit better.

Written By Anonymous, Clarksville, TN on Tuesday, July 10, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Thin plastic, warped edges, no place for the factory supports. It did the job but barely, had to file back some of the button holes so them buttons could move freely, have gaps between the trim and the kit, and the single din storage pocket is bowed on all four sides. It went in, it holds my radio, but it screams cheap after market.

Pros: It held the radio

Cons: Had to cut to fit, improvise support brackets, and has a cheap/flimsy look and feel

Color is way off

Written By Joe, Wilmington, NC on Thursday, May 24, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this for my 2012 Xterra. I found that the color no where near matches the gray in the dash, which is extremely dark. This is more of a medium gray. Black would be closer in color to the existing dash trim, so I'm going to buy one of those to see if it looks better.

Pros: It seems to fit correctly.

Cons: The surface scratches very easily. The surface of the factory trim is extremely rugged; there is no comparison between the two. The whole thing seems to be pretty flimsy, but that is par for the course for these things so I don't know if I'd say it is worse that usual.

Worked great

Written By Suzuki Equator 2011, NJ on Monday, May 14, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The front bezel fit into the factory dash easily. Was a little worried about the left and right sides as I could see a crack of light from the back. Once in place how ever it was perfect Did not show at all.

My truck only uses two of the three switch locations on the bottom portion that is just above the two knob holes. The reason I mention these is because I had to shave these around the edges a bit because depressing the switch would cause it to jam in the down position. I just scraped the edges of the switch hole with a knife, scrap mind not slice. After a few tries the hole was ok with the switch, after depressing it would spring back up.

I used a 1 din receiver and it had some play when using the sleeve that came with the radio. I solved this by wedging and gluing 2 nails onto the top of the sleeve that just happened to fit the gap perfectly. The bezel always hid the gap , I just didn't want the play.

Bezel is a matt black job, not as nice as the one that came with it , but servicable.

Pros: Great fit Easy to install

Cons: tight on the buttons causing them to stick Not as nice a finish as the factory bezel

Yea, it ain't great

Written By Brandon, Sterling, VA on Sunday, April 15, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Build quality is very mediocre. I had a very hard time getting one of the brackets to snap on: had to use use epoxy and two clamps to force it into place. It LOOKS decent once it is installed, but the color seems chosen at random. It doesn't match the xterra gray even remotely. Though it does sort of compliment it. What might work better is getting one of these and repainting it. Alternatively, modifying the Nissan radio mount doesn't look too hard for someone who is confident with a dremel. Though I am loathe to hack up actual car pieces irreversibly.

Pros: It holds the head unit. It is cheap. There are no alternatives, so at least you don't feel like you've made a bad choice!

Cons: It is cheap.

Adapter Package

Written By Bernard, Hawaii on Monday, April 02, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Not sure I ordered the correct conversion packet. The face and bracket were wrong. There was nothing special on my buyers paper to show a special readio so I selected stock. The installer did use the wire harnesses which wer4e just fine. The installer adjusted the original harness to accommodate the new radio.

Pros: Radio fit well into the slot.

Cons: Need a better way to visualize the different faces and harness to insure exactness.

Looks great, fits great, easy to install!

Pros: Looks, fit/finish.

Did not get to use it as it did not seem to match 2011 Nissan Frontier dash.Radio fit fine in factory dash.

Pros: Would have been nice if it were for correct year nissan

Cons: Did not match my Nissan Frontier.

Great fit, color is a little off

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The construction and fit of this kit is very good. It is easy to assemble, the radio mounts very securely. Every fit 100%

Pros: Good fit, secure, easy install.

Cons: Color (gray) could be a bit closer to match the Xterra's interior. Could probably be repainted if it is too much of an issue.

Looks good.....

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I installed this with a single din receiver, using the lower pocket it included. It looks factory and matches up very well with the dash, but the pocket moves around a little on bumpy roads causing an annoying rattling and squeaking noise, other than that, it works and looks great.

Pros: It fits well, looks good, easy to install.

Cons: Some small gaps, pocket doesn't fit very snug, rattles and squeaks.

Trim a tab

Written By Nissan Truck, SC on Tuesday, October 18, 2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Fits okay. Needed to trim two of the tabs of the bigger trim ring to make it fit around the cuddy box for a single din receiver. Also, needed to insert a piece of foam between the underside of the receiver and the top of the cuddy box to squelch a few rattles because the plastic has a lot of flex in it.

Nice Replacement

Metra 99-7428B Dash Kit

Written By Anonymous, Boston, MA on Monday, October 17, 2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The tolerances around the environmental control buttons and dials were a bit to tight, no matter how much I fiddled with moving the control module around from the install. Additionally, the gap is a bit larger than necessary on the sides. The kit worked for the most part, but so far having done this about a dozen times to different cars, this gave the worst end result.

Ok, but a problem

Written By RandyP, Austin, TX on Friday, September 23, 2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Generally, the trim kit fits well; however, the final piece of trim around the Pioneer GPS Navigation Receiver (AVIC-X930BT) does not fit, will not fit, cannot modified to fit. I called Customer Service and there is no other piece available to fit. Therefore, the installation looks unfinished (because it is). I have no idea what to do, and neither does Crutchfield CS. Anyone else experience this issue and have a suggestion what to do?

Metra 99-7428B Dash Kit

Written By Larry, NY on Thursday, September 15, 2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Not the best faceplate I've installed...the cover for my 2006 Tacoma was spot on and fit great, I don't have that much confidence in this one.

The climate control buttons are a tight fit and I had to play around with its mounting to get it to fit just right. I also agree with others that I would like to see more mounting brackets because you only use 1 of the 3 stock mounting screws. Also, there's a noticable gap between the bottom of the radio bezel and the top of the storage compartment.

Overall, it is secure and does the job. The paint/finish is not very impressive, but I haven't yet had any paint scraping or smudging issues as others have had.

Good, but....

Written By Brian, Frisco, TX on Thursday, August 11, 2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It does what it is supposed to do, but it's not quite OEM fit and finish. There are some gaps here and there, there are some rattles/squeaks when going over rough roads. Overall, I'm happy with it for the price I paid (free).

I think a lot of the squeaks would be solved if the kit used all the screws that the OEM dash used. When all was said and done, I was left with 4 or 5 screws that wouldn't go anywhere?

Poorly designed for 2011 Xterra

Written By Crabby, BBridge, PA on Thursday, July 07, 2011

The faceplate is missing the 4 screw holes for mounting the metal brackets to hold the HU. So you have to use a mounting sleeve instead of bolt on brackets which means the unit just lays in there held in place by a couple bent over tabs. The whole thing rattles around quite a bit unless you use a lot of foam or other means like a metal strap. Also without those mounting brackets there is only one screw and a few clips holding the center console in place. Also a previous review was correct, the paint rubs off very easily. I handled it very gingerly while mounting and when finished I wiped it down with a terry towel and windex and two pieces of paint flaked off right above the HU. One more thing, I had to file down the cutout for the defrost button. It was a little tight and the button would stick. And another thing, the storage tray bows which leaves a gap in the middle. If it weren't for that and the paint coming off it would look pretty nice but still insecure.

The trim kit that came with my order made me look like a pro. The dealership
where I purchased my 2011 Xterra could not get over how nice the radio
looked. When I told them I installed it myself, they we really impressed. THANK
YOU Crutchfield!!!!

great kit, none better!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

first of all, the fact that crutchfield throws in all the necessary install gear
for free is AMAZING. while price shopping both online and locally, i found not
only they had the best deal on the deck i like, but also saved me about $60 in
install gear. to top it off, of the available kits i found locally, NONE of them
fit as perfectly and looked as good as this one. i am amazed that they can
provide this gear for free, and very grateful! i will recommend all my friends
to crutchfield for their purchases of electronics!

if you are wondering if this kit fits well and still retains a factory look, the
answer is yes, absolutely!!!!!!!!!! i am using a single DIN deck, so the
additional storage cubby is also VERY nice to have, and it is sloped at an angle
the NOTHING you put in there will fall out. i use it for my cell phones and it
is the most convenient addition to my vehicle interior since ive owned it!

fits 2011 xterra with ZERO modification

Metra 99-7428B Dash Kit

Written By KennyC, Covington, LA on Monday, April 11, 2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Kit came with detailed instructions for my application. Made the installation a
no brainer! Fit and finish were very good and, although not quite as sturdy as
the factory console, appears to be more than adequate. Original console had
more of a textured finish, which given the choice, I would prefer. However I am
very pleased with the kit which enabled me to have an installation I am proud
of. Thanks Crutchfield!

No Thanks

Written By Mike, Houston on Tuesday, April 05, 2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This install kit is cheap. The brackets that screw into the sides of the stereo so you can can slide the stereo into the din did not even hold the stereo in place. The weight of the radio alone unclips the tabs and it comes out by itself. The pocket does not fit flush with the stereo trim piece that the kit comes with either. And there are also gaps around the lower pocket piece because the pocket bows in on the top and bottom. I'm going to buy another brand kit and re-install it all.

09 Nissan Frontier

Written By Jason M., Honolulu, HI on Saturday, March 12, 2011

I agree with most other comments, the factory metal brackets that suppported the factory head unit were much more substantial. I actually felt the need to use metal flex-strap I bought to mount the DIN chassis to the torx screws near the ECU controls. Otherwise, the only thing holding the DIN cage into the adapter is the dog-ears on the DIN cage.

As pointed out by another reviewer, there were three screws mounting the factory unit to the metal chassis, but with this adapter there is now only screw and about eight panel clips holding the entire assembly to the truck's chassis. I also used foam placed between the bottom of the DIn unit and the cubby-hole portion of the adapter plate.

My suggestion is to have Metra make a kit that can secure the DIN unit and entire assembly to the truck chassis, more closely to the grade/quality of the factory unit. If Metra is unable to do so, recommend Crutchfield select another vendor to make this adapter.

This kit will also fit a 2009 Suzuki Equator Sport. Too bad the kit itself is
mediocre. There are gaps around the edges where the head unit fits in and around
the edges where the kit fits into the dash. This is a common complaint with the
Metra kit for the Frontier, Equator, and Xterra. I will probably replace it
with the Scosche kit, but for now it at least holds everything in there.

looks good and works well.
