Scosche GM1482MGB

The receiver in this vehicle is installed in the center of your dash. This kit adapts your new receiver to the opening in your dash and maintains your air conditioning vents, which you will attach to the openings on this kit.

Your vehicle's dash color is one of 12 possible colors from the factory. This kit is available in only five of those colors: dark blue, cognac, gray, medium beige, and garnet red. Warranty: 60 days.

Note: Most vehicles will require additional installation parts — please identify your vehicle if you haven’t done so, then check here for a list of parts. You can also call an Advisor for more information.

Better than the original!

Written By Mike S, Texas on Thursday, July 03, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Great dash kit! It matched the original color (grey) and is in better shape than the original. I like that the vents fit in better now and that the radio looks like it was supposed to go in there. I bet you could almost use a full size radio with it, just about. Fit in better than the original and worked as designed. No issues.
Pros:
Fit The color matching (Charcoal/Grey) Looks better than factory
Cons:
No Cons at all.

to bad it's the 93 lyrics choice

Written By Anonymous, alma, ar on Tuesday, June 03, 2014
 
The instructions are very easy to follow.
Pros:
Easy install.
Cons:
Color is off and it does not allow a deep enough cavity for modern decks. So after your install the deck sticks out 1/2" too far.only remedy is to use a passive deck that is shorter, or modify the heater box.

Almost flawless!

Written By Roan, Utah on Friday, March 14, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
It fits extremely well, and it itself was easy to install. Putting the vents in was a little hard, but this wasn't at fault. It didn't come with the lower metal clips, but those should be on your car already. The old ones fit perfectly. The color is a little off, but what can I expect I am buying something new, to match something old and faded. So I cannot complain about it. It still looks great! They only issue I had was in the very back of where the old tape deck/equalizer went there was a truss frame helping the old tape deck. You can remove that, two 7mm bolts. Installed in a 89 pickup K series.

My big thing is to make the radio look like it belongs and this dash kit makes it look clean and beautiful everybody here comments on how good it looks with my kenwood stereo and now my pickup looks fantastic since the stereo isn't just hanging out of a hole thanks to the sides makes it fit properly Instead of it hanging out of the hold looking bad

Good replacement dash piece

Written By Johnny Z, Fort Worth, Tx on Friday, January 04, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This dash kit replaced brother in laws original in 92 Chevy pickup; color was pretty close to original. Good fit and look, but the install of factory vents with clips were cumbersome and vent would not rotate from clip fitting snug. Overall, good repalcement.
Pros:
Good color match to original (pretty close to), good fit.
Cons:
Installing a/c vents and clips were a pain and not able to move up or down; just the horizontal would work.

Great product for a great price, however, I got the wrong color. The listing said medium beige and I got what looks like a grey color. In reality, my truck is a 93 Chevy with a mocha color dash.

In-dash kit

Written By DerekH, Stockton,Ca on Thursday, August 16, 2012
 
I had called crutchfield prior to ordering this part that was included in the setup I needed for my stereo installation. I had asked specifically about the "clips" that came with it for mounting purposes to secure this installation piece into my truck. I was told that it did have the clips and everything I needed for installation was there. When I recieved the package the important clips I needed, the gold colored ones that pop into the holes of my vehicle did not come with this piece. I had ended up going to my local salvage yard and finding some clips that would help me finish my installation. Also keep in mind when ordering these replacement dash parts especially for older vehicles there is going to be paint fade and these are freshly painted, so there is going to be a stark contrast in color.
Pros:
Fits my radio just fine.
Cons:
Security clips non-existent. Non-matching paint color.
Crutchfield response on Tuesday, August 28, 2012
The advisor on this order was incorrect. The OEM clips are not included with this item. The clips must be removed from the original panel for installation. In addition, it is certainly possible that color match could be off due to sun fading.

93 Chevy 1500 with JVC Receiver

Written By DBlake, Idaho on Sunday, June 17, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This worked fairly well. the instructions could have gone one step further in explaining where to reroute the wires in the dash, but it didn't take long to figure out. The A/C vents are a little loose in the new trim piece. Not unbearable, but it would be nice if they were retained better. Everything else was awesome. It clicked right in, under the dash has more room without that dang stock amp/radio thing... the color matched pretty well even though mine is pretty sun faded.
Pros:
Looks nice. Fairly easy install.
Cons:
A/C vents are a little wiggly. As someone stated, it would be cool if the vents came with it so they fit correctly.

Another Great Product

Written By Nathreen, Glendale, CA on Friday, May 25, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Another great product that GM came up with. I am sure several years after they created these vehicles, their factory tape players were starting to die out, so they had to create something for those consumers that wanted an after market product. This item fit perfectly and was easy to install. The only thing we had some issues with was inserting the old vents from the piece we took out. It gave us a little bit of trouble, but eventually went in. It would be a little better if they sold it WITH the vent pieces too. Just an idea, GM.
Pros:
Simple install, matches perfectly
Cons:
Inserting old vents a little difficult

A Good Product

Written By carpetfeller, CA on Monday, May 14, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
There is not much to this product. It fits. The color matches reasonably well.
Pros:
The best adapter available. The others I found had multiple pieces and only came in black.
Cons:
It's kind of ugly but that's really GM's fault because of the way the deck has to fit. $5 more than the universal mentioned in "pros".

This was essential to installing the radio. It almost fit the dash and the radio
perfectly. I had to really push on the radio to get it to lock into the grille
because there was an air duct or something behind it that tended to keep the
radio from going all the way in. Another 1/8 inch and it would have been perfect.
My compliments to the Crutchfield staff for the excellent removal and
installation pages. They were complete and well illustrated. This also applies
to the wiring harness pages.

Dash for 95 GMC K1500

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Just wanted to say this and the other parts that Crutchfield provided free for my JVC radio purchase were awesome. The master sheets worked out fine. the whole project took 2 1/2 hours to remove and install. Factory harness was no problem hooking up to the new radio. The master sheet showed me exactly where the factory amp was and then hooking up to the stereo was a breeze. It helps to have some radio experience but im far from pro. Not too hard for the novice ,weekend radio warrior. Thanks Crutchfield.

This piece fits fine (not quite as good as the OEM piece), and matched up good enough. My truck is a 90 so I didnt expect it to be an exact match considering all the years the dash has had to fade.

My complaint is, if they are going to go through the trouble of making the 1 din pocket deeper than stock, why not actually make it deep enough for the receiver to fit without having to stuff it in there?

Since a normal DIN stereo doesn't fit in my truck, the kit they give you includes a new dash section for where the old cassette player was and this works great. The color match is pretty decent (not perfect) and is as close a match as various pieces of trim within the truck itself.

I installed this on a 1990 Chevy K1500, and the only thing I had trouble with during installation was the vents. They fit really tightly which made getting the metal clips in really hard.. but I eventually got it. Also had a little trouble keeping the wiring harness from bunching up behind the deck and preventing it from going all the way in.. but that's not really a problem with this kit. Overall I'd say 5/5

Scosche GM1482MGB Dash Kit

The fit and finish is very good. It has clean lines and looks original. Could be easier if the reciever pocket was included. Or even listed.

Works well, color slightly off (not bad for 14 years of fade)

This unit replaced an old unit I'd purchased at a local stereo shop several years ago (~$25). My dash is garnet/burgundy and the old unit was definitely not the same color, being more bright red. I lived with it, I needed the piece. This one came with my new Crutchfield radio purchase (free of charge!) and looks a lot better than the old one. It's closer in color, but is not an exact match. It's a little shinier, but what would one expect after 14 years of sun punishment to my dash. Compared to the old one, I'm very pleased. It came free (which is nice) and looks more like me dash.

GM In-dash Receiver Kit for 1991 GMC Sierra

Written By Burnie, Douglasville, GA (Atlanta) on Tuesday, January 30, 2007

Everything I needed was included. Installation took about 4 hours. Would have taken less time if I had known about the connector junction box that the factory wiring was plug into. It took awhile to trace the wiring and to make sure I wasn't pulling out and destroying valuable wiring. Once I discovered that the factory plugs did plug into the wiring harness, everything was fine. However, in this 1991 GMC Sierra, there is little room to work your hands inside and under the dash. The wiring harness could be longer to make it easier to feed and connect the connector pins. It's almost too short. I had to take the receiver deck out a couple of times to make the connections of the unit properly. The instructions were good, except for the lack of explanation of the wiring connections. The wiring from the factory radio (that also attached to the cassette player in the middle of the dash) did not connect directly into the harness. You have to trace them back to junction box, disconnect from the junction box and plug those ends into the supplied wiring harness. I'm a 1,2,3,4 follower of directions and this step that was left out threw me a curve. However, I figured it out eventually. I was just being careful not to unplug something that I shouldn't.THE CD HOLDER IS TERRIBLE-THEY FALL OUT CONSTANTLY! Also, for this particular vehicle, the instructions tell you to remove 4 screws to remove the factory radio. What they don't say is that one of the screws is behind the face of the radio and it's almost impossible to get ouy. You only figure that out after you have removed 3 screws and you are looking for the 4th. So, beware of the 4th screw.

Works Pretty good.

Written By Herb, Ft. Sill, OK on Wednesday, January 25, 2006
 
This kit works pretty good. The only problem I had is that the original dash peice, that this kit replaces, is a lighter shade of gray. But My truck had a two tone set up for the dash and the second tone matched perfect. Unless you had a really sharp eye and knew chevy truck interiors well you would never know that this peice wasn't factory. And in any case this kit still looks good in the dash. I highly recommend this product to anyone who is replacing there factory stereo with a DIN style stereo.

Awesome

This kit is awesome, it matches the inside of my silverado, and it was very easy to use and install. If you are planning on installing an after-market radio in your 88-94 silverado this is the kit for you.

Scosche GM1482MGB Dash Kit

Written By Dan Cordon, Moscow, ID on Monday, October 17, 2005

This piece is necessary if you're going to instal a DIN sized headunit in the GM trucks. It replaces the panel where the tape deck or EQ went. On the one I purchased, the fit was just fine. It removes easilly, and functions great. However, the color was not even close. At first I thought that maybe the color on my dash had faded over time, and originally looked like the color of this piece. However, looking at the back side of the panel I removed (which had never seen sunlight), it matched the rest of the dash perfectly. The piece I purchased is a lot more red than the plastic on my dash.

In the end, I went with a black color of this piece, and painted the center strip (from cluster to the end of the glovebox) to match, leaving the top and bottom of the dash in the original color. This looks normal enough that you may even think it came from the factory that way.

In the end, I only give this 1 star, because it looks horrible, even if it does technically function.
