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.

Fit could be better

Written By R, Arcata, CA on Tuesday, June 25, 2013
 
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.
Pros:
Simple Double Din install.
Cons:
Tolerances could be improved.

Could be better

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 kit...so 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

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.

I must admit I was pretty skeptical when I pulled this out of the box as it had a lot of plastic (and actually, the stereo is held in place with plastic brackets unlike the OEM stereo which uses metal brackets. I happy to say it is surprisingly sturdy. No squeaks or rattles although winter and colder weather may bring those out? Kit looks very good and fits perfectly.

Plastic brackets that hold stereo in place rather than metal

Fits but barely

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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?

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?

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

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.

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.

Frontier Install Kit (Black)

Written By JC, Greenville, NC on Sunday, February 13, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This kit is okay, but would be better if you could use the Nissan metal brackets
to mount the unit. My 2010 Frontier has three screws that hold the dashboard
pieces in place, but without the metal brackets, only one screw can be used. The
plastic mounting plates lined up okay with my Clarion CX501 double DIN receiver,
but some of the mounting holes were recessed, and the screws supplied with the
receiver were barely long enough to screw in securely. The black actually
matched up half decently with the factory dash, although you lose the cool
textured pattern on the factory dash piece. I didn't have problems with gaps in
the faceplate the way the single DIN units did. I think the installation looks
pretty good, I'm just more worried about the durability. Not sure how many other
options there are to this kit, but unfortunately the factory dash has custom
openings for the two factory stereos available, so it can't be used.

Does the job, but not high quality

Written By carmon, Honolulu, Hawaii on Wednesday, January 05, 2011
 
I bought this dash kit to install my new pioneer double DIN navigation unit. I thought because it was from Crutchfield that it would be High Quality, I was wrong. I received the dash kit and took it to the installer and they wouldn't even use it. It is very poorly made and you will have to custome make some sort of trim ring otherwise you will have a gap on both side of a normal double DIN unit. I will have to agree with the other reviews too, the quality of the material looks like the bottom of a plastic Soda Bottle. It did not match my dash at all. Do yourself a favor and stay away from this product. Spend a little more and go with the Scoshe unit.

Metra 99-7428B Dash Kit (Black)

For the price, you get ALOT of installation pieces including the complete dash
faceplate. There is no doubt that this kit would work with any of the year and
model Frontier it states.

Functional but not beautiful

Written By CGreview, Nashua, NH on Thursday, August 19, 2010
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This product serves its intended purpose but doesn't look great doing it. The fit and finish of the interior hole (i.e. where the HU goes) is pretty poor. I wish metra had just molded an entire plastic sheet over the HU opening with pop outs for signal and double din. The thin center strap does not support a signal din unit well. The HU cage can be seen even with the supplied trim rings installed. The seam match up between the dash and the kit was actually pretty good. I had no issues with sticking heater or ac controls that often occurs when molders get excessive flash in those areas. Overall, I think this unit will work for most but if your doing a show vehicle or are really picky about interior looks you may end up paying for someone to build a custom fiberglass trim ring.

It's just ok

Written By trongod05, San Antonio, TX on Thursday, April 22, 2010
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I think the product overall serves its purpose. However some of the parts are cheaply made or don't look very good once they are installed. The main faceplate looks pretty good but the flat finish does not match the glossyness of the pocket insert when using the single DIN configuration. The pocket is not completely straight on all sides which makes it looks like it's bowed in and also creates ugly spaces between your receiver and the receiver. Finally, I wanted to switch to a double DIN receiver I would have to physically cut out the divider. This divider should be removable and replaceable.

Do you completely discard the metal brackets from the original radio and plate? Even though they bolt into dash for support? [ Jason  May 03, 2014 ]
