Flexible in use, but too flimsy in support

Crutchfield customer from Lees Summit, MO on 7/31/2019

2009 Toyota Highlander

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I used this to replace my factory unit in my 2009 Toyota Highlander. In comparison it is a much cheaper and more flexible in build quality. It is 100% plastic and you may be required to cut parts out of it like I had to in order to install a double DIN stereo. The factory brackets were made of metal and provided the structural rigidity of the system. However, being all plastic, it is more like the dash kit relies on the stereo itself for structural rigidity. The plastic parts didn't clip together very well like they should have and I ended up having to cut some of the plastic tabs in order to get them to fit together. That was after one of the tabs broke of course. With the number of stereos coming with USB connectivity, I would have liked to have had the USB plug connections as an option in order to tie the back of the stereo into the front of the dash. I was able to install a 3rd party USB interface after boring out a hole in the face where the volume knobs would have been on my factory unit and this "fix" works well. Lastly, the plastic definitely has a cheaper and different feel than that of the plastic dash pieces that surrounds it. In summary, this kit should be provided in two options, single or double din, and with a metal bracket. The plastic could be a better quality. A USB port to interface with the back of the stereo would be a great add.

Pros: Easy to add 3rd party USB port

Cons: Cheap plastic, easy to break, doesn't fit together well, too flimsy

I did the install in a 2012 highlander WITH factory navigation based on another review here. I also purchased a hazard switch from a local toyota dealership with the alarm light ( part number 84010-0E050-C0 ) install was really smooth and everything works fine except it didnt retain factory fader. I want to a special thanks to my advisor Brooke for all her help.

Toyota Highlander Dash Kit

Crutchfield customer from North Scituate, RI on 4/5/2019

2010 Toyota Highlander

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The dash kit fit snuggly in the opening of my 2010 Toyota Highlander. It is stylish and blended well with the rest of the dashboard. The only concern was the plastic arms that held the backup camera should be reinforced as the camera shakes when going over a rough road. I highly recommend these kits.

Pros: Great fit, stylish.

Cons: Need to reinforce plastic arms holding backup camera.

Fits 2008 Highlander Limited with Navigation, but...

Crutchfield customer from Long Valley, NJ on 12/24/2018

2008 Toyota Highlander

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Pretty good fit. Both areas where the volume and tuning controls were extend about a 16th of inch beyond the dashboard. THIS DOES FIT a 2008 Highlander Limited WITH NAVIGATION. However, you need to purchase a hazard switch that will fit. My part number is 84010-0E050-C0. It has the anti-theft light. The dealer wanted $164. I found a site and got the OEM part for $114. The plastic is suitable for easy drilling which I did to custom fit the mic for the stereo.

Completely incompatible. The factory face covering contains built-in electronic components for the hazard lights. This replacement face covering is rendered useless because it cannot accept the hazard light components.

Pros:

Cons:

Crutchfield response on 10/24/2018
One of our Tech Support gurus, Daniel, reached out to this customer to let them know that the factory hazard light assembly must be removed from the factory location and inserted into the slot on the new kit. Daniel also offered to make sure that the customer provided us the correct vehicle information to confirm the compatibility of the installation gear.

Perfect fit install kit!

Korey from Ellijay, GA on 12/4/2016

2009 Toyota Highlander

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The dash kit fits perfect. I was worried about how plain the kit would look without the factory knobs , and if the ears on the sides where the knobs used to be would look out of place. But it looks great . I was extremely impressed. The kit comes with the mounting brackets for the factory clock. There are guide pins when you bolt everything together so the clock fits like factory when then final cover is in place. No adjustment needed perfect fit. The only draw back is the mounting clips for back of the kit do not come with it , they have to be swapped from the back of the radio. Not a big deal just eight tiny Phillips head screws. The kit come set up for single din radio. My application was for a double din which requires cutting a center bar from the radio opening, easy modification I used my wire cutters. This kit made for a easy, perfect fit installation. Thank you Crutchfield!!!!

Pros: Great look , fits perfect,mounting brackets make for precise alignment with no guess work!!!

Cons: Clips from radio have to be swapped from factory radio. Not included with kit.

This after market dash kit looks great in my 2010 Highlander.

Pros: Great fit in the dash.

Cons: The brackets fit ok in the back but allow the right side to stick out a little. Might be my fault though.

It fits...

RickH from West Virginia on 10/6/2015

2012 Toyota Highlander

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This unit fit in my Highlander, but it's not great. Because the unit is softer plastic, there is a lot of play. The upper section that holds the display / backup camera is slightly off-center. I think I need to open the dash up and figure out some way to reinforce that part. The half-circle that covers where the knobs used to be sticks out a bit too much on one side. The frame around the stereo droops a bit in the middle. The exterior finish doesn't match the original, but looks OK overall. The installation / setup itself took a while but was pretty straight-forward. I would have gone for a slightly more expensive but better-made option if it was available.

Pros: Overall fit is good Exterior finish is good Installation was relatively simple

Cons: Softer plastic, so things don't line up perfectly

The worst dash kit I've used

DickJ from Jaffrey NH on 8/29/2015

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The bezel ring in the original kit did not fit in the opening at all. Crutchfield sent another kit. The slots for the mounting screws did not align with the holes in the radio and required modificaiton. After some modificaiton the bezel ring fit in the opening, but does not look like the quality of the car. In addition, the entire kit was plastic. The kit supports both the radio and the car's video display. The original supports were metal. This kit should have metal supports and the parts should bit together properly without modification.

Pros: The color matches the dash.

Cons: Required modification. The bezel in the first kit did not fit at all. The one in the second kit required modification to fit. Quality is definitely lacking.

Vehicle Specific Install Kit

Totally satisfied with this unit. Sound, features, easy to use. The unit fit perfectly and was relatively easy to install. Using the "Vehicle Specific" kit, supplied install manual, and wire harness, I had the unit on and working in a few hours. If it sounds this good with factory speakers I cant wait until I can upgrade to better speakers. The navigation and satellite radio... GREAT. The Crutchfield team was awesome. From helping me choose the system to fit my budget and what I wanted.Their tech support is second to none if not better. They knew the product and were familure with my vehicle

2010 Highlander non/JBL nor navi nor backup cam orginal radio

Shirley from Roswell, NM on 6/9/2013

2010 Toyota Highlander

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The install kit came just as pictured and for a double din unit install had to modify the kit. First, is obvious had to remove the center plastic from not one but two pieces so the double din unit will slide in. Then for whatever reason there is two tabs on the back of this unit that required their removal before the radio would fit between them. You have to reuse your hazards button which btw was very hard to push thru the opening they had left to do it in and you have to reuse the plastic tabs from your original radio and some bolts. The whole bracket is very wobbly and once in the radio is held in proper like which I was so worried about but the clock at the top of the bracket is weak. The bracket will flex when setting the time on the Toyota clock which is scary but, I guess I don't do that very often. Lastly, is the fit and finish of the install the bracket has a different texture compared to the rest of the dash and as one other reviewer noted the part of the bracket that covers the huge knob holes left from the factory one is slightly higher then the dash and no part in the kit to fix this problem. But in the end you have huge hole that the factory radio leaves behind and you'll need to fill it some how. I only wish this company would have found a way to attach this kit to the original Toyota metal bracket.

Pros: Fills the void left by the factory radio, fit and finish is decent considering how big the factory radio is, and (Black) color is nearly dead on

Cons: Wobbly, alot of extra cutting and trimming to install a double din (at least an hours worth), texture is wrong, and I wish I could have chosen a Metra install kit for this install.

TOYOTA HIGHLANDER DASH KIT

MARKT from HERMITAGE, PA on 5/5/2012

2011 Toyota Highlander

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Very nice kit which looks beautiful in the dash. Color matches perfectly and texture of surface gives it a factory look. The tolerances are tight on the parts making for a somewhat difficult assembly for fear of breaking the plastic but fits together nicely once assembled. Fit in the dash is perfect with even spacing all around the edges. Very pleased with the results.

Pros: Good fit and finish.

Cons: Somewhat difficult to assemble due to tight tolerances of individual parts.

Almost ready for prime time player

JeffB from Flagstaff, AZ on 4/2/2012

2009 Toyota Highlander

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Upon first review the product looks solid and well made. Cut well and ready to go right from the box. This however was the mos difficult part of the install and after 2 hours of fiddling and even then taking to a pro installer cannot get it fit flush on the right side. The bracket just sticks out from the dash by 1/5". Enough to be noticeable and without gluing it permanently in there, it will be noticeable. I would buy again to see if mine is just a fluke, but don't want to spend the money on buying it and then having to RMA it.

Pros: Well made from quality components. Color matched great with Ash Interior on base model. Great instructions, would be easy to install if it only fit correctly

Cons: Fit is mediocre to poor, making for a lot of frustration. This shouldn't be something that you should have to call tech support to install, nor take to a professional installer.

Q
Can you fit an EQ below a single din player with this kit?
[ Marlon  Jun 14, 2018 ]

A
The kit is made for use with both single and double DIN chassis applications so, yes; if your single DIN stereo & single DIN EQ will accept the side mount brackets, you can mount them together into the double DIN opening.
