Scosche CR1286B In-dash Receiver Kit

Written By Ken, Veazie Maine on Sunday, July 06, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Perfect fit once I finangled with it a bit. Took some work and minor adjustments, but was able to make it work.
Pros:
Instructions with the package was helpfull. Fee with the radio
Cons:
the instructions didn't mention the two screw holding part of the dash together from below. Good thing I didn't yard on it until it broke and was smart enough to figure it out. The strerio had a hard time to fit at first, but was able to work it in without breaking it. Trim ring doesnt fit with this insert, but looks fine without it.

Hit or Miss

Written By Todd, WIlmington, DE on Friday, May 09, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
THis kit simply will not work with the Lightning Audio LA7000 receiver for my Jeep Grand Cherokee. Unfortunately, this is the only kit offered by Crutchfield for my Jeep. I did not find out it didn't fit until after connecting all wires ahead of time,. and then trying to slide the radio into the installation kit.

This review has as much to do with Crutchfield supplying a product that does not work as it does with the actual product itself. I had to purchase another kit from another store (Metra brand) in order to finish the install of my radio. The installation kit is supposed to be the easiest part. It turned into a 2 day scavenger hunt for a kit that worked.
Pros:
It was free and came in a sealed package
Cons:
Did not fit my single sin radio that was supplied to me by Crutchfield.

Installed in 2006 Dodge Ram Mega Cab Truck. It worked. Had to trim it a bit to make the Kenwood Excelon KDC-X797 fit better. And the instructions could be a bit more clear on how it goes together. Overall works and does what it needs to with a little help.
Pros:
Fits good in the trim. Comes with all the hardware to install
Cons:
Doesn't seem to fit all stereos correctly. Needs better instructions

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Not much to say; its a piece of plastic. Originally bought with a Kenwood KDC-BT752HD but after some modications and a few headaches I determined that this is just not going to fit this Kenwood head unit. I had Crutchfield send out a different kit but that was for a Grand Cherokee with Nav. So, I decided to return the Kenwood and go with the Alpine CDE-HD137BT. The Alpine unit fit perfectly, no struggles.
Pros:
Looks good in Grand Cherokee
Cons:
Doesn't fit the Kenwood KDC-BT752HD no matter how hard you try

It just doesn't fit

Written By Wade S, Rippey, IA on Monday, December 10, 2012
 
The receiver fits VERY tightly into the receiver kit and it wouldn't let the receiver slide all the way in so that I could use the screws to secure the receiver. Thankfully, I was replacing a cheapo aftermarket receiver that the previous owner of my truck had installed, so I was able to use the receiver kit that was already in my truck.
Pros:
It was included free with the purchase of my new receiver. I'm glad I didn't have to pay for it.
Cons:
It is now in the trash...not in my truck.

grab a utility knife!

Written By Ray, western pa on Monday, October 22, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This is a very well fitted dash kit for the truck. Easy install...to the truck. There is one major major flaw though. This is a four piece dash kit. Papers say to use all four pieces. But it is not possible whatsoever to use the rear "Iso" tabs since the head unit's install sleeve won't fit once they're in. Throw em away. That is not the flaw... once you mount the sleeve and slide your radio into it, it is 100% impossible to lock in the outer trim piece due to clearance issues with the head unit. I trimmed the contacting areas back with my utility knife aboutt 3/16" at each corner to make it so I could clip the two pieces together. Be careful if you do this, don't trim any deeper than 1/8" on the sides or it'll be visible from the outside. Done right,you'll never be able to see the it was ever messed with! It took me about 40 mins to carefully do it.
Pros:
Looks great!
Cons:
Not cast well at all, but fixable flaws.

Did not fit as stated

Written By MikeR, Lansing, MI on Tuesday, September 25, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I bought a Kenwood Excelon KDC-X796 CD Receiver along with this kit. The Crutchfield web site said they both fit my 2006 PT Cruiser. That is kind of true. It would fit if center opening in this kit was a bit wider as the radio has to sit flush with the front of the kit (before the cover piece is snapped in). This cover piece fills the two half circles (were the factory radio knows were) that stick out beyond the sides of the rectangle hole in the dash and fills the taller opening in the dash left by removing the factory radio. The side pieces needed to be trimmed down with a razor in order for the radio to fit flush. I was up until 1 AM trimming away at this kit and the sides of the radio itself until I got it to fit correctly. Someone at Crutchfield needs to address this! I see other reviews were people had this same issue. Why would you keep selling something that doesn't work! Fix it or find another kit that works. I did complain to Crutchfield.
Pros:
Fits opening in PT Cruiser dash. Fills in half circles where factory radio knobs used to be.
Cons:
Poor design. Required cutting with razor knife.

Did not fit!

Written By GW, Lake Geneva, WI on Monday, September 10, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This was the only part of my entire installation that didn't work. The side pieces needed to be trimmed down with a putty knife in order for the radio to fit. I didn't mind that too much, but the absolute worst part of the install was the front trim plate. It actually went into the dash fine- but that was without the radio! With the radio installed it clearly wouldn't work; the radio protruded too far for it to fit when I closed up the dash. The instructions were not clear at all, they looked they were copies of copies and were quite generic. So I had to try installing the radio into the receiver kit a few different ways in case I wasn't clear with the bad instructions. I did call tech support and the tech acted like I was stupid, and only told me that it had to fit. This was not my first car stereo installation. After talking to him for a while and listening to his "answers" I was only concerned with getting off the phone. Now I have the bare receiver kit in my truck with the stereo installed. I will likely make my own trim ring for it or maybe alter the cheap plastic one they included, but needless to say I am very disappointed in the fit of the radio. The receiver kit was cheaply made and it's no wonder it was included free. This will very likely be my last purchase at Crutchfield.

Written By MSalzbrenner, Des Moines, IA on Monday, July 09, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This was included for free. Doesn't get better than that. Absolutely essential for installing a single DIN sized stereo in my 1.5 DIN vehicle. I didn't use it for my installation because I needed to have an additional location for my EQ, but for a standard install its nice to know the Crutchfield has your back by including the items that will be needed to install your system. Especially when they give them to you free.
Pros:
Its free, and Crutchfield includes this required part.
Cons:
Doesn't accommodate an EQ.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
2007 Jeep Commander This kit did not fit very well with the Sony MEX-BT3000P HU that I purchased. I'm aware that the original HU trim isnt supposed to be used with this install kit, but the HU still didnt fit properly. It fit fine into the install sleve, but the finishing piece of the kit with the half moons wasn't even close.

I had to carefully cut away some of the support corners of the finishing trim to allow it to not only fit over the headless face of the HU, but to also fit into the main piece of the install sleeve/mounting bracket.

End result, it looks great, and ended up working, but the amount i had to cut away makes the trim extremly fragil and i almost broke it many time while working on it.
Pros:
Looks great when all said and done.
Cons:
Be prepared to have to alter the plastic pieces.

2005 Dodge Magnum Kenwood KDC-HD552U

Written By JD, Norte Carolina on Thursday, March 22, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The kit fit the car like a glove. The head unit was a very tight fit in to the side supports. It took some wiggling and stretching to get it to fit. Then the external part of the kit that filled in the space of the factory unit would not click in to place. The new unit's plastic frame, not the excunsion ring, was too wide for the trim. I had to gnaw away at some of the inside piece with a set of diagonal cutters for about 30 minutes to make it work. Once in the dash you couldn't see any of the damage and the cars dash panel will help support where the plastic had to be weakened.
Pros:
Looks nice once the shoe horning and gnawing is complete. Fit in to the car perfectly
Cons:
Be prepared to make free form modifications to the kit to make the unit fit.

2006 Jeep Commander

Written By cwpari98, Georgetown, KY on Friday, March 09, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This install kit was very straightforward and simple to install. The fit and finish when install was complete is fine and looks great. The only thing confusing for me is the side panels that attach didn't seem to allow the head unit to fit in the opening so I left them off. I suppose they would provide additional support but I really didn't see any possible way to get the sleeve and the head unit in the kit with the side panels installed. The trim panel that attached looked good, but I do wish the install instructions let people know that the trim ring that comes with your head unit is not used with this kit as I made the mistake of putting the head unit trim ring on first, and I had to take it back off.
Pros:
simple to install and feels pretty solid even without the side panels.
Cons:
Don't know what purpose the side panels serve as they didn't seem to fit and still allow a head unit to be installed with it's sleeve. Maybe I missed something, I don't know..

Poor fit and finish

Written By mbood82, Lewiston, ME on Wednesday, March 07, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The adapter physically holds the radio and fills the voids in the dash. However, the trim doesn't fit over the radio properly so it won't snap into place on the bottom. Fortunately, it is such a tight fit into the dash that the dash holds down the trim instead.
Pros:
Fills the hole, free with stereo
Cons:
Fit and finish.

Great Fit

Written By Clint, New Orleans, LA on Thursday, May 19, 2011
 
I was concerned with putting an aftermarket stereo in because of the awkward dash panel. This kit integrates perfectly and look great. The head unit installs perfectly as well. People that gave it a bad review because the flip down head units don't work well with the kit probably didn't use the Crutchfield vehicle fit guide. It told me not to use a flip down head unit so I didn't. Couldn't be more pleased with the fit, install and appearance.

Good trim piece to take up the excess space left behind from my factory radio.
New Aftermarket reciever installed easily into the kit one conn here was though
that the mounting srews that came with the aftermarket reciever were to short to
go through the mounting plates and into the reciever so i feel they should
include a selection of screws that will work with multiple manufacturers radios.
It looks real good in the dash but i would recomend painting it if possible i have
a stainless trim around my reciever and the flat black does not really look real
good against it.

Good fit, great looks

This trim kit really makes the radio installation look like it should. It fit well in the dash
but it had to be trimmed a little so the radio would fit inside it. I trimmed it with a
Dremel. That was behind where it was visible so no problem.

close...but

Written By shopteacher, arlington, or on Sunday, November 28, 2010
 
very tight fit on deck, takes some muscle to make fit and faith/flex
instructions... not very intuitive
fit into 08 dodge ram (fine after some light trimming with the dremmel)
seems a solid install for the application

the crutchfield dash demolition instructions are very good! easy to find all the hidden screws.

Was a little concerned about using this product after reading some of the reviews, but it worked great with a Pioneer 5200UB. Looks good installed.

This trim piece worked great for me.
I installed a Jensen into an '05 Magnum and this piece fits like a glove.
I didn't have any of the issues described by other reviewers.
The look is good enough to make it look like a pro install and the build quality
seems to be pretty sturdy.

Solid Frame & Faceplate - Poor Fit

Written By Dave, Seattle, WA on Saturday, November 14, 2009
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This is a nice solid trim piece. NOT flimsy plastic. It is a crapshoot as to whether or not your head unit will require some moderate trimming, but it's not that big of a deal with a Dremmel. The 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 premium sound / Dual head unit combo needs trimming.

Should come with a Dremel!

Written By Ken, Saint Clair Shores, MI on Saturday, May 02, 2009
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This kit came with my Kenwood KDC-X993 I purchased from Crutchfield to put in my 2008 Dodge Ram 1500. It required a bit of work with a dremel to get it to fit properly. I had to take off about 1/8" each side on the back where the half circles are in order the allow it to fit properly around the head unit. Poor design on Scosche's behalf. Once I got that out of the way, everything else was a breeze.

As mentioned before, it does leave a less than desired gap around the head unit, but overall it does look good in the dash.

Luckily I had a dremel or I would have been really upset. I would have given it 4 stars if I didn't have to modify it to get it to fit.

Beware the deck you buy

Written By Jeremy, Franklin, MA on Saturday, April 18, 2009
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The bracket fit the car nicely but didn't quite fit the deck I bought even though it was supposed to according to the Crutchfield advisor. It took some work with my dremel tool to get it just right. If I hadn't owned a Dremel than it would have turned into a big mess. I was disappointed I had to put in so much labor to get it to fit right.

I had zero problems during instillation and I think it looks great. It would be interesting to know what it would look like if they were sold in different colors, such as wood grain to match my dash. Other than that I am very happy with the way the finished product looks.

This adds a good flush mount that most after-market units dont. It fills in all the awkwardness that is left after the stock head unit is pulled. Good Fit!

Kit fits Great! Crutchfield instructions were sketchy

Written By rem1473, Cleveland, OH on Monday, October 27, 2008
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The installation kit fits perfect. Very flush and factory looking. My Alpine IDA-X100 fits perfectly with the supplied side brackets and screws into the side. Rather then bending those tabs up on the chassis. I had no idea how to tear apart the dash of my 2008 Jeep Patriot. I was able to find the instructions on some random Mopar website. I am glad that I didn't try it until I found the correct instructions. I probably would have broke something!

dodge dakota install

The adapter fit and worked all except for the faceplate. I see on this website i was not the only one who had the same problem. Try the fit before you install in your vechicle. If you have the same problem i and others have had the faceplate won't lock all the down because it hits the stereo mounting sleave. Problem was solved by using a dremmel to widen the area on the faceplate where it was hitting.

Looks good, but too flush

Written By Bud, South Texas on Tuesday, September 02, 2008
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I haven't seen an adapter that looks as good as this one in the Dodge Ram pickups yet the design makes the H/U sit almost TOO flush. It makes fold-down receivers stick when opening. It is a simple design flaw and could be easily changed if Scosche wanted to. There is no way for the consumer to adjust it but it would be nice if you could. Had i known how flush it sits I would have bought a different headunit.

While this kit works, the design does not allow for fold down face receivers. It is a two piece kit and it would have been easy to design the cover piece for fold down as well as slot load receivers.

this is a good piece of trim besides the fact that the front pice you pop on to cover the trim ring of the deck and the rest of the radio to fill the gaps of the dash dosent really fit that well because of the trim ring on atleast my pioneer and pops off but it's better than the alternative of having a big hole in your dash

The front trim piece for this install kit DOES NOT fit over the front face of a pioneer head unit. Maybe it works for other units but not pioneer. The edges barely hit the frame of the deck and makes it crooked. I have an '06 Dodge Ram and it just doesn't work well.
