Works well. Installation is difficult as the body of the radio is designed to be mounted horizontal, but the truck is design for the body to be mounted vertical. Once mounted. it works well.

Pros: Sounds great.

Cons: Difficult to mount body of the radio as it must be mounted in a small space in a manner it is not designed for.

Crutchfield customer from Cocoa, FL on 9/28/2020

1989 GMC Sierra

This is not an exact fit replacement. The Radio Face installs in the original radio location but the radio Body will not fit anywhere. What's in the box does match the items shown in the manual, seems I did not get the correct parts to install the radio. I have a 1989 GMC Sierra C1500 with center AC vents. The original receiver was mounted to a bracket under the dash. RetroSound should have done some better research.

Pros: none

Cons: Does not contain the correct parts for a proper install and very bad installation instructions,

Nice kit, looks very similar to the OE radio with new features.

Just completed the installation of the Santa Cruz unit. Fit was good and adapting the old bracket to work with the sound module went well. Took a bit of time to install but well worth it. Great sound and lots of features. Now my 1992 GMC truck has got tunes back in it. Thanks Adam for the help and Crutchfield for the product.

Modern features, retro look

Gerald Tschetter from Santa Ana, CA on 10/27/2018

1994 GMC Suburban

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

Until the RetroSound Santa Cruz, the only option for an after market replacement for early nineties Suburbans were single DIN stereos that went where the original cassette deck was installed. The Santa Cruz looks like it came with the truck and has all the features of a modern radio. Installation takes some effort but nothing that someone with moderate mechanical skills and hand tools can't do. It's a bit expensive but keep in mind that RetroSound is probably not selling mass-market quantities. One minor quibble - I had to put washers behind the left mounting tab to get the face of the radio flush to the other surfaces.

Pros: Looks like it came with the truck, sounds good, Bluetooth, iPhone connection, all the inputs and outputs I needed.

Cons:
