Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The unit fits the dash perfectly, and provides a clean finisher look. It seemed a bit flimsy at first, but so far no issues. The instructions could be improved, a lot of steps were left out. I had to work by trial and error to get the parts assembled correctly.

Pros: Gives a great finished look

Cons: Instructions are not sufficient.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This made installation of an after market Pioneer head unit a snap. Really enjoy the extra storage space this created by replacing my double din CD player with just the head unit. Fit could be slightly better. Just a little off on top where it doesn't really sit flush with the dash but it's minor.

Pros: Easy installation. Color matches well.

Cons: Fit could be slightly better but it's not bad.

I was worried due to some of the reviews on this site about this kit, but I was pleasantly surprised with the kit's fit and finish. It has the exact same dimpled "golf ball" finish as my Tacoma's original stereo, and blends in perfectly. The directions aren't super clear, but you should be able to figure it out...

Pros: Great fit and finish. Looks stock

Cons: None

Not The Best, But It Works

Written by: Michael from Alabama on June 23, 2015

2005 Toyota Tacoma
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I got this kit because it was part of the package deal from Crutchfield. Build quality on the whole kit is average at best. Lots of excess plastic left around where the mold releases were, the silver does not match the dash, and the mounting brackets are plastic, which allow a good bit of flexing. I also noticed that the pocket (for single DIN installation) is a little smaller than other kits I've seen. Also, for the dash clips on the faceplate, I had to trim some of the plastic off the tabs in order to make the clips fit right. Despite all that, it made it into the truck without breaking. We'll see how long it lasts.

Pros: -It fits -It didn't break during install -My hazard switch fit, but I've seen where others' did not

Cons: -The mounting brackets are rather flimsy -The molded plastic has a good bit of excess on the edges -The silver does not match -The kit as a whole flexes a good bit

Not bad for price, but you may have to clean up excess plastic (from injection molding process) Fit was OK, after several adjustments and swapping plastic clips, texture and color are spot on

Pros: Quick to install, Texture, Color Match

Cons: Quality control lacking ''burrs, excess plastic''

Find an alternate kit

Written by: Dan from Alabama on May 7, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

See the cons for all the reasons that I dislike this product. While my overall satisfaction with Crutchfield is very high, I am very dissatisfied with this installation kit and will have to find a replacement of higher quality. This thing is a piece of junk and not worth the plastic it's molded from.

Pros: It fills the whole in the dash left after removing the stock radio.

Cons: Flimsy, doesn't fit dash well, won't support the weight of the receiver, won't stay securely in the dash, looks "cheap", rattles while driving.

Worst install kit

Written by: Matt from California on May 1, 2015

This is by far the Worst install kit ever! Not only does it not match the interior color and the texture of the dash but this is absolutely a PIB to install correctly to ensure that the Double DIN fits level and flush. The clips that are provided are cheap and you will loose them in your dash causing you to spend another hour taking everything apart to retrieve them. Order an alternate kit from online or get it professionally installed.

Cons:

The fit is not as nice as I would like it to be. One side sticks out more than the other. The fit of the clock and the hazard light button is not the best. I'm told the Scosche kit is Much better, but Crutchfield does not sell that model.

Pros: It's works.

Cons: The fit could be better

Great trim kit

Written by: Slate creek from Ponte Vedra, FL on March 31, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This trim kit far exceeded my expectations. It looks just like it came from the factory when I got done. It's seems to be a real quality durable product that will last a while.

Pros: Clean look and ease of installation. Looks factory after install

Cons: Instructions were a little difficult to follow but after a couple trial and error I got it right.

Quality issue

Written by: Edward from California on March 31, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Metra kit was not of the quality I wanted to put in my truck. The bezel that surrounds the stereo and fills the area between the stereo and the dash panel was not straight and the gaps were not equal. It looked cheap. I purchased a Scosche kit and the quality was much better. The fit was clean and the overall quality was better.

Pros: Free with the stereo

Cons: Quality issue. Parts did not fit properly.

this kit is garbage

Written by: taco from Nevada on March 7, 2015

2008 Toyota Tacoma
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this kit to install an aftermarket radio in my 2008 tacoma. It comes with 2 plastic mounts to replace the oem steel brackets that bolt to the dash. These plastic mounts flex and do not feel as secure as the oem mounts. The kit was missing the screws that were required for assembly. The screws were listed on the instructions as being included with the kit. The main grey dash piece looks like the oem trim but it did not snap securely into my dash. I took the plastic clips off of my oem radio and put them on the grey piece included in this kit. The grey dash piece could be pulled out of place with a very light tug on the pocket. Maybe there is a better clip for this. The instructions missed a few key steps. For example, they did not explain that you need to put a bracket on the hazard light piece before screwing it on to the back of the replacement grey dash part. I returned this kit and would not recommend buying it.

Pros:

Cons: plastic replacement mounts flex grey dash piece does not clip onto my 2008 tacoma dash securely instructions were poorly written

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Over all it doesn't look bad. The replacement dash panel looks very close to the original. The opening for the double DIN seems a little large though, and the trim ring doesn't fill the gap that's left.

Pros: Dash panel looks like original OEM.

Cons: Instructions could be a little more informative, and the gap around the Kenwood head unit has a little "slop".

Cons: None

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The dash kit looks great. My only complaint is the very poorly written instructions. Took a lot of time to figure it out. The face of the head unit sits almost vertical and a little recessed while the trim is sloped like the dash, but it looks like it belongs.

Pros: The silver texture looks very much like original equipment. No gaps.

Cons: The instructions leave a whole lot to be desired, especially for the first time installer.

in dash receiver kit

Written by: DSV from barberton, ohio on March 13, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Wiring was fairly easy even for a novice. The kit overall was complete and easy to understand. Two problems that i encountered/am dealing with: The black piece that holds the receiver in the dash has a place to screw it to the dash at the top but no hardware to fasten it. Second and most problematic the "pretty" piece, the cover plate, mine is silver, looks nice but does not snap tightly in place and has to be push in tight to the dash every so often while driving. This is a pain and results in a not very clean finished feel.

Pros:

Cons: As mentioned above the cover plate does not fit tightly in the dash does not snap in place and has to be pushed in tight frequently while driving.

Looks great in the dash, however it feels cheap and flimsy during install. Most reviews state the hazard button opening must be adjusted so it fits. I found this to not be an issue. However I did have to trim extra plastic all over the kit to make it fit and for the clips to catch correctly. Overall a good kit for the price(free).

Pros: Look

2006 Tacoma single DIN install/conversion kit

Written by: Pete from Lansdale, PA on November 14, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The parts work and fit into the factory space and fit and finish looks fine. Here are some important considerations you have to keep in mind if you will install the kit yourself. 1. Wiring instructions are fine. 2. Installation instructions are incomplete. Installation takes about 1 1/2 hrs. 3. After removing the cover from the factory receiver, keep the four plastic retaining clips on the factory cover because the retaining clips in the kit will not work. 4. The hazard button cut-out interferes, preventing the button from freely engaging and disengaging. You will need to us an Exacto-knife or box cutting knife to remove material and the button will operate properly.

Pros: Price, appearance, Crutchfield support.

Cons: Rework of some kit parts required but not difficult, supplied retaining clips do work (use the factory clips), instructions lack crucial information to make installation easier.

Pros:

Cons: The instructions are not too good; they don't mention, for example, that you need to remove some of the harness clips from the old receiver kit to get the new one to stay in place.

Installation Tip

Written by: MW from Portland, OR on July 2, 2013

2006 Toyota Tacoma
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Looks great in my 2006 Tacoma, but: - the plastic tabs that are supposed to snap the closure panel into the truck are too small for secure retention. The equivalent tabs on the factory install are metal with a plastic snap on spacer. I took this plastic spacer off the factory tabs and put them on the new tabs (they fit well). This solved the problem. Over all the new install seamlessly fits the truck

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The kit has a clean look. It has an almost OEM feel except for the cheaply feeling clips used to attached the kit to the dash. I needed to use the OEM Toyota clips to get it to secure properly. Even then it still feels as if it may pop off at anytime. Other then that I like the look.

Pros: Clean look, OEM style.

Cons: Feels a little cheap, clips don't secure kit flush to dash

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The face fits the dash opening decently. The color and texture are good.I used this to mount a single din alpine which i love. That's where the problems start. the little tray attaches to the deck and is supposed to center in the main bezel. A lot of my friends have said I am one of the best mechanics and fabricators they know, and after 2 HOURS I could not get these pieces to align correctly.. I got the up and down set, but there is a 1/4 inch gap on the drivers side, and it is sitting under the main bezel on the passenger's side. The emergency flasher button would not fit without filing down the hole. I think i'll be trying out the scosche kit and recommend everyone else do the same.

Pros: main bezel color and texture are a good match to stock.

Got it in black, and it gave a nice aftermarket look. Only reason for 4 stars is that the hole for "hazard lights" was a little tight. When I hit hazard button to turn " off" , it wouldn't pop back out. Reamed it out a bit with Dremel, and now it's all good. Other than that, fit perfect on 2010 double cab Tacoma.

Pros: Looks good

Cons: Slight altering needed

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

After reading the reviews I was a bit worried that there would be some issues. But after installing the kit everything was perfect. It matches the dash color and holds the receiver with no rattle or wiggle. Like other reviewers said, you may want to use the OEM white clips from the original dash mount but other than that the kit fit perfectly. One thing I noticed was that you do want to center the receiver mount before screwing it down. If it's off center, the dash faceplate can force the receiver to tilt and then you will get some wiggle room and every time you press a button, the edge of the receiver will slip under the dash faceplate. But once it's centered, the receiver doesn't move at all.

Pros: Easy to install, matches dash trim

Cons: none

Honestly, after reading the reviews on this site, I was very apprehensive about this kit. However, I couldn't have been more pleased with the results. The fit was a perfect, the appearance was great (looks like factory) and does as advertised. I followed the instructions, and had no problems. The kit is a very secure, tight fit with no movement (I used the supplied white pinch clips). To assure that the receiver (JVC KD-HDR70) did not vibrate/rattle within its sleeve, I used a small piece of rubber between the bottom of the receiver and the top of the storage compartment to act as a shock absorber -works great. Hope this takes away some anxiety.

Pros: Looks great, works great

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Where to start. The good first I suppose; The color and texture was pretty close to stock. You probably wouldn't notice otherwise unless you took a second glance. The fitting wasn't so good. I did a double DIN install and the top of the deck was flush but the bottom was sunken into the dash by a long ways. There is a small "filler" piece that is like a trim meant to take up some of this space, although it still left a gap at the bottom. I added some washers to the mounting brackets to kind of kick out the bottom to take up a little bit more space. The brackets I used to attach the deck to the car mounts were the stock, as the included ones attached in no way/shape/form (except for gluing them on there if one was so inclined). The kits was missing the size 6 screws to attach the clock/emergency light button to the dash piece, had to go to store and buy them. Also had to use the stock plastic pinch tabs to put on the new kit so that the front dash piece would stay in. I was pretty disappointed in this kit to summarize it.

Pros: color/texture was a close match

Cons: fitting sucks

Anything that requires the end user to modify it with a dremel tool to fit isn't that great. The clock/hazard panel fitment was not good at all. Also make sure to remove the OEM plastic clips and put them on this unit. No where in the instructions did it mention that.

Pros: Looks OEM, versatile kit (DIN, Double DIN, etc), and free.

Cons: Poor fitment, Poor instructions.

The Metra DIN kit is really cheap. Meaning that it is not very good. It's weak and flimsy. Once installed completely, you can see it sort of popping up away from the dash. I used the factory clips instead of the ones in the kit, cause they did a better job of holding it in. I wished they sent a kit by Scosche. At least the Metra they send is free.

Pros: Free from Crutchfield when you order a stereo.

Nowhere near the quality I'd expect from Crutchfield. The plastic is thin and flimsy - I expect it to break after a few trips down rough roads. It offers no protection against theft & I doubt a thief would even need tools to pull the unit out. Getting the hazard / clock display out of the factory housing and into the new housing is far more involved than indicated and I'm not sure it's reversible if I need to go back to original. The face doesn't fit well at all and keeps popping out of the mounting holes. There is no way to adjust either the receiver mount or the face. Worst Crutchfield product I've ever seen.

Having read reviews on this and other's like it I was concerned. The molding and finish was less than perfect, had to file a lot of stuff off of it, but it fit perfect. Color was acceptable. My biggest concern about it being loose was unfounded, fit very snug and the head unit looks good and it is stable. I installed a double DIN and it is bolted to the original mount, which I would recommend over a single.

Pros: very easy to use and install

It looks pretty good in my Tacoma, but the fit around the edges are perfect and the hazard button now sticks a little (it turns on fine, but sticks when trying to turn it off).

Pros: Color match.

Toyota Tacoma Mount Kit

The kit looks great, for color match and finish. The directions provided were very general, and lacked some critical details. It took some time and common sense to get everything in place. Fit for the hazard light button and OEM clock was less than perfect, and required some hand work for the button to clear properly. Trim panels around the head unit is sloppy, and required significant hand work for a quality install. I would recommend purchasing a higher-quality install kit, as this one is bush-league right out of the box.

Color may have matched, but the color isn't consistant. There are 3 spots on it where it looks like the sprayers didn't cover it completely and the black color of the plastic shows through. Also there was extra plastic from the moulding process (usually called flash) that had to trimmed out of the way, which then left where it was trimmed a line of black where the plastic shows through. Over all in my 2008 Tacoma, it fits nice and tight, but I can easily see where everyone else is concerned about the flimsiness. I think I just got lucky on that part. It doesn't fit the head unit very well and I can see the steel case surrounding the head unit. I tried using the surround that came with the head unit to hide it, but then the silver dash piece wouldn't fit at all.

Pros: free

Cons: see above

Great that it was free from Crutchfield - this kit was anywhere from 10 bucks to 30 bucks depending on the brand you chose and where you got it. I installed my in a 2006 Toyota Tacoma. The color match of the kit to the dash is pretty close but not exact (the difference is not enough to tell without really taking a good look). The kit isnt that sturdy however and the clips which come with it are pretty much useless in a Toyota. I ended up using the clips in the stock kit that I removed from the truck. I had several "fit" issues with my new head unit and this kit until I made the switch in clips. Once I did that everything fell right into place. The install has been solid ever since.

Pros: Free from Crutchfield Look is very close to dash Kit comes with double din and din units which is cool that they give you both

Cons: White clips in the install kit are useless -- go to your dealer and get stock clips or use your old stock clips if you can.

2008 Toyota Tacoma
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a great looking product but take your time installing it. The only reason I gave it 4 stars and not 5 was it need to be cleaned up a bit. I had to take the edge of a knife to all of the openings and clean them up from what I assume is overflow from the plastic mold/paint. I also had trouble getting the white clips on the back of the face plate to attach properly. I actually had to sand down the arm the the clips attach to to finally get them to click in. I have seen some reviews where people say the face plate doesnt stay attached to the dash of the truck. I belive the issue is those white clips not catching properly on the face plate. Make SURE you tug on the white clips to make sure they dont pop off the face plate BEFORE installing it into the dash. If they do pull off, sand the arm down and try again. Last but not least, Call crutchfield for help or there is always YOUTUBE...

Pros: Looks and fits great! Wanted a stock look in the truck and I got it!

Cons: Took a lot of time to trim the faceplate so that it had a clean look. Also had to sand down the plastic where the white clips attach to the face plate so they would clip on and not slide off.

I installed a Kenwood single-din head unit with this kit. Everything fits, however the finish is a little rough (mold flashing visible for instance). Had to trim the excess plastic, and had to trim the hole for the hazard flasher button. Also, I realize the price would be much more, but if the mount and black plastic surround was aluminum instead of plastic (the factory radio mount is aluminum) it would be MUCH better. I plan to fabricate most of this out of aluminum in the future. Overall it's fine. Works like it should, fits (see above), and the "golf-ball" texture and color matches the OEM interior bits. The little cubby under the radio is handy for a place to store my iPod.

There were no directions to install this kit, so my friend and I spent a while trying to figure out how the pieces go together, in what order, and which ones to use. We're both pretty smart, but it was a little frustrating because a simple piece of paper with a diagram would have saved us a good 30 min or more. It would also convince me that I put it together right, which I'm not totally sure about since I can pull out the head unit by grabbing onto the face plate. I don't think that's supposed to happen. Also, the thin frame that goes around the face plate keeps falling off, so I'm constantly pushing the pieces of this kit back together. The gray piece has a few extra millimeters of plastic running into the cutouts that I'll need to trim with a knife so it doesn't look like my car was made in China. Overall, I'm disappointed with the kit, but since it was free, it's really hard to complain. The local big box store wanted to charge me $40 for the same thing, and then $20 for the harness, both of which Crutchfield included at no cost.

I was not impressed with this kit. I felt the instructions and accompanying photos were next to worthless. This leaves one struggling to assemble it and put in in place with little to no help. The support brackets included are lame, at best. They are flimsy and soft plastic...tighten the bolts with care. The opening for the radio leaves much to be desired and the opening for the hazard switch must be trimmed to keep the button from sticking. I was able to get everything in and it looks acceptable, but it needn't have been such a struggle. Clearer instructions and photos would have been of great help.

This product was absolutely horrible! First, the kit does not allow you to use the full Din slide as provided by the stereo manufacturer. The fit was terrible, using either the stereo trim plate or the Metra trim plate. Screws were missing and the slide brackets that hold the stereo would not stay clipped in place. I called Crutchfield and they made good on the item....kudos to tech support at crutchfield.......I purchased the Scosche kit made for my truck...night and day difference! The scosche is def. the way to go......

Decent fit, looks great, may require some trimming

At the top of this kit, there is a minor gap, maybe just a few millimeters short. The Hazard button will be very tight. I had to trim some of it out with a knife. Also had to do some trimming around the piece that goes around the double din stereo I installed (Jensen VM9324). Overall, it almost looks stock, other than being black instead of silver/grey like the original stereo. Easy instructions, especially for double din stereos.

Metra 99-8214T Dash Kit

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Installation of this kit was not very hard at all. My only complaint is that the brackets to mount the whole kit to the dash was made out of (in my opinion) very weak plastic. When I was putting the bolts in to make a snug fit it started warping the plastic and it even started to crack a bit with just a tad bit of pressure. Personally I wish the brackets were made out of metal like the stock ones, but other than that my new stereo fit fine and everything went into place.

I wasn't sure which color to get when I ordered this kit, so I went with the black one to be on the safe side......the factory one is silver. I made the right choice....in my opinion the black one makes the whole dash look better in my Tacoma. Installation was a snap thanks to Crutchfields easy to follow instructions....this is a nice product with high quality :-)

I have installed a few radios and this kit makes the install very easy - the hardest part is getting the clock module out of the stock radio - I went with black because the silver kit is just the black kit painted silver lol. Crutchfield supplies excellent step by step instructions / make sure you get the harness - take it from somebody that has to fix others mistakes - the last thing you want to do is cut up your factory harness- bottom line - take your time and have fun-

This is fairly thin plastic and if you put in a larger 2DIN unit that weights a couple of pounds, it just does not hold it well. So, it shakes a bit when driving. Also, the finish of the plastic is not all that great. My emergency flasher button rubs on one side due to the molding of the plastic was not all that clean and had to shave some off. I'm looking for a better replacement now.

Bad Fit, TWICE!

Written by: Josh from WV on January 16, 2011

Instructions that came with the installation gear were confusing; in fact, the installation gear was horrible! It shipped with missing screws, missing clips, and the faceplate didn't fit the radio very well. Crutchfield sent out a new one, which fixed most of those problems; however it still rubs against my hazard light switch even after I cut out the opening to accommodate it, and I can still see around the receiver into my dash because the faceplate is not a good custom fit for the JVC double DIN radio I ordered. And as one other reviewer mentioned, removing the clock/hazard light assembly from the factory radio was very tedious and the instructions did not go into detail about how to remove it. (It had a little b&w picture of the assembly with an arrow pointing away lol). Once I got it completely installed, it does seem sturdy, and the color isn't a bad match up. I don't, however, like the recessed look of the faceplate where it meets the radio. It definitely doesn't look like the sleek factory radio finish that I was expecting. I think Crutchfield should look for a new manufacturer of installation gear because this quality does not meet the standards I have come to appreciate from Crutchfield!

The install kit worked out great, and looks just as good as the factory mounting did on my '06 Tacoma. A minor nit, and advice would be that some of the plastic molded parts needed to be shaved a bit with a knife to fit properly. But, as long as you don't force anything, it's pretty obvious when a bit of mold overflow is blocking the fit.

Even after reading the reviews I was skeptical about how well it will match the dash, i was shocked, it looks good. I mean really good. No issues with anything fitting correctly at all. Getting the clock/hazard assembly out of the old factory stereo was a tad bit challenging, but over all it was very simple. several of my friends did not notice i installed a after market radio just because of how well it blends in.

Written by: taco05 from NorCal on May 11, 2010

Instructions were very bad. Be prepared to make a few educated guesses because some steps are not there. I was a little worried because of the neg feedback, but I just finished installing the silver unit with JVC stereo in my 05 double cab and I am very happy with finished product. No filing or product modification was necessary. Fit is tight, even, and looks as good or better than I espected. Color and dimples are as nice as OEM. Overall this is my 4th Taco and this was my easiest install. Why did I wait this long!!! I also put in 2, 6x9s in the front doors and 2, 6.5s in the rear doors tonight. Fronts were easy. I used mounts for the 6x9s. Yeah!

The kit was pretty good but I did find that if you can not use some of the stock parts it was flimsy. I have a '06 Tacoma and the main face plate looks pretty good but when I put in my Kenwood DDX-616 there is a some wiggle room between the black insert that goes around the face of the receiver and inside the window cut out of the silver housing. I was hoping for a much tighter fit and a look that made it seem like a stock radio and not one was upgraded.

I liked the black finish compared to my factory oem silver & I was able to figure out how to make this kit work. Did not use the plastic brackets for it was way too flimsy with the deck's factory sleeve. Too much flex for my liking so I used my factory radio metal brackets though wasn't able to affix the trim ring/single din portion of the kit anywhere. Not to mention the pocket was warped. The setup seems messed up but somehow made it work until I can figure out another way or get a non-warped pocket from crutchfield. Gonna call tomorrow.

It works for my 2007 Tacoma. Not an ideal fit - some of the metal casing of the stereo is visible at the top if you look clesely, there are gaps on the sides of the trim plate. Generally matched the appearance of the rest of the center console. The molding is very poor quality - I had to grind a few of the parts down to make them fit together (during pre-assembly - all parts from the kit manufacturer!) and there are visible signs of the injection process on the lower front (which fortunately no one will likely ever see). It does work and fits firmly in place despite the disappointing quality.

Written by: Earl from Virginia on July 31, 2009

It works, but the finish could look better, looks like someone just took a can of silver spray paint to it, so it doesn't look as nice as the factory facade . The Instructions were terrible, took me an hour to figure out how my single Din radio mounted in the dash. The brackets are plastic and flimsy. I think the SCOSCHE model has metal ones. If I had to do it again I would buy the SCOSCHE kit.

The installation worked, but the instructions were not clear for my 2005 Tacoma. I had to improvise to come up with a configuration that worked for my Pioneer radio, with the parts provided. The mounting brackets on the stock radio are metal, and the ones provided in this kit are plastic & flimsy. The radio can be moved in the dash, and the faceplate interferes with the faceplate removal. Overall though, it worked.

I used the single din setup. The instructions could be better, but they are not hard to figure out. The finishing of the product can be better, specially the faceplate because I had problems fitting the clock/flasher button on it.To fix the problem I had to sand the edges of the new faceplate so that the button could operate freely. Other than that, it looks good. Also my head unit fit was too deep on the single din frame, so I had to modify it to bring the head unit more to the front.
