Looks good, matches the color very well in my 09 Tacoma. Only thing is the sides are not perfectly flush, they stick out just barely (1/16 of an inch) But looks good none the less
Pros: Matches color Fits dash Non textured, smooth looks better
Cons: Left and right sides just barely stick out
This fit my 2010 Tacoma perfectly. It is smooth where the OEM part was textured, if you didn't know that it would look original. Like others I was concerned about the plastic brackets (the factory stereo was held in with metal brackets) but it hasn't fallen out yet!
Pros: Fits perfectly - like OEM Looks good, color matches perfectly Good price
Cons: Plastic brackets to replace metal just seems wrong
Its ok but not perfect
Pros: Perfect fit in dash
Cons: Not textured like the OEM unit and no instructions.
Pros: Snap right in!
This kit made the installation look almost as good as factory installed system. It was definitely necessary to make sure the installation doesn't look like a hack job.
Pros: The Gray in dash module looks great!
Cons: The bracket to fit onto the CD-receiver (Kenwood DPX500BT) seemed very flimsy and I would not trust it if I was to drive on many dirt roads. The hardware included to connect the plastic brackets to the CD-receiver were a very poor fit and wouldn't even stay in. Alignment inside of the in dash receiver unit is difficult because of the problem with the fitment of the brackets to the receiver. Plenty of room for improvement in this part of the kit.
Pretty darn close to a perfect match to the vent surrounds which is what i was hoping for. Crutchfield is awesome!!
The dash mount was good, but the non detail of how to was bad. Good thing I was able to find a blip on U-Tube that detailed the dismount issues.
Pros: Matched my dash
Weak plastic had to very careful not to break we will see how long the side brackets last
Product fits great and is a color match. No issues whatsoever.
Pros: Works great
a little wobbly due to plastic brackets. Overview says this kit uses factory brackets. Wrong. comes with plastic mounting brackets that help correct viewing angle issues. Only problem is that the brackets are a little bit flimsy so you may want to do some creative reinforcing of their strength to keep them from creaking and wobbling at times under VERY bumpy conditions. Don't use factory metal brackets, even after modifying them to fix viewing angle, they still never fit quite right. This is the kit to buy for your tacoma.
Pros: looks great. helps correct viewing angle.
Cons: supplied brackets are a little bit flimsy
Matches my 2009 dash perfectly. Fits nice and tight and looks clean. And it came free with my head unit purchase!
Pros: Great color and fit It Was Free!!!!!
This is a perfect replacement kit and nothing is nicer than free.
Pros: Color matches perfectly
Cons: Sturdier plastic pieces to hold the unit in place stronger would be nice
Directions were not very clear as to how the sides attach to the kit. Pretty flimsy until you actually screw the radio into the sides. Silver paint coat was extremely thin and showed 2 scratches from minimal contact with the radio while sliding it through. Once the radio angle was fine tuned and I tightened the side screws, it fit well into the dash.
Pros: Color match
Cons: Design, paint coat
Fit is Excellent
Pros: Pops right in
Cons: Needs extra clips- one fell in the dash and can't find it
I got this for free with my headunit purchase so the price was great! This is a scosche kit and they do not make one for the 2012 Tacoma yet, however this one works for now. Toyota changed the dash slightly on the 2012 so this kit fits in with the same bolt locations and everything, but the contour lines are off and there are some gaps. Last I heard, Scosche is working on a 2012 kit and it should be out about May 2012. I will switch to a 2012 kit when it comes out, but this one works fine for now.
Pros: good color match
Cons: not available for the 2012 yet
Should of gotten the black, but gray looks good (gray interior) it's a keeper
Pros: easy to install
A bit confusing, I had to remove all kinds of stuff from the unit to fit in, mounts are quite flimsy but work ok once in, face plate trim panel scratches extremely easy (its black under the this silver paint!) and doesnt hook securely on the bottom as it should. It works but certainly could be better.
The piece matches up well with the rest of the ("silver color finish") dash. My biggest complaint is that the instruction guide was lame - it stated the support brackets "snap in" and they do not. When I called Crutchfield for help, they were sure of it either and went to go get one and try it. They too saw that it wasn't accurate so we had to just "guess" that you "kinda attach them to your double din unit while holding it in place & up against the faceplate. Sure, if you have 3 hands and not everyone is born that lucky. I mean really?! It did take just a bit of manipulating and "trial" to get it to work, but it finally did. Also there was a small pack of two little silver screws - what are these for? In comparison to the factory where the sides have a "curled" pieces, this is just cut off, nothing actually curls and goes back fitted in the dash, it's just a cut off edge on both sides. I must also admit I am a bit concerned about the "plastic" lasting or holding up and not having the silver type finish wear off or fade out - there is another mfg who makes theirs (probably the unit supports mainly) in metal which would probably be better. As much as I'm pleased with the finished look, which it does look good, they lose points for poor and misleading install info and fairly cheap durability and questionable expectations. With a little effort to not "shortcut," it could even be alot better piece of product.
Great mounting kit, the silver matched my 2011 Tacoma perfectly. Small problem with the
faceplate snapping in tightly on the left side. It leaves about an 1/8 inch gap as opposed to
the right side which fits perfectly snug. Had the same issue with a Scosche kit on my 2007
Tacoma??? Fairly minor issue and I don't think anyone but me will ever notice. Other than
that, it looks great and I'm happy with the way it turned out.
Install was easy. I'd advise that you save screws, clips, etc. from your stock radio. You'll
likely need to use them.
Installation was fairly easy. The installation kit provided everything I needed and
instructions were easy to understand. With the supplied connectors I didn't have to cut any
