Metra panel looks good until it's installed

Terrence from Benicia, CA on 2/8/2019

2005 Dodge Ram 1500
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This Metra panel kit looks really good for the price. However after replacing the factory panel it became apparent the fit is not as good as the original. There is a 1/32" to 1/16" gap around the edges of the Metra panel. Also the opening for the multimedia receiver is not square. It's 6 27/32" wide at the top and 6 15/16" wide at the bottom. That's a 3/32" deviation. Called Crutchfield for support. I was advised to try rotating the receiver to compensate for the gap. Unfortunately this is no wiggle room for rotating it. So now I'm stuck with an inferior looking installation.

Pros: Kit was complete with all listed parts. Came with good instructions. Assembly was quick and easy.

Cons: Not the same size as factory plate. Quality lacking in some areas as described.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This fit my 2003 RAM 2500 perfectly. It's well thought out, the instructions are clear and it works fine. I might take a half a star off if I could because the little brackets used to mount the radio are a little weak but it all seemed to work well.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This kit was amazing!! Soooo easy to go to a double din receiver. Whised I had done it sooner.

Pros: This was sooo easy to install. I had watched YouTube videos of guys saying to either "send you dash to us and we will do it for you $$ or" I use plastic epoxy to hold mine in. HECK NO!! This thing come with 7 spacers and screws that screw right into you dash. YOU WILL NO GO WRONG GETTING THIS!!!

Cons: N/A

Bryan from Piney Flats, TN on 9/17/2018

2005 Dodge Ram 1500
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

While this kit looks good post-install, but I couldn't give it 5 stars due to build quality. Most of the install worked out fine until i got to the end and began mounting the face plate to the factory brace, and one of the plastic posts twisted conpletely off with very minimal force applied. Crutchfield was awesome sending out a free replacement and the 2nd face plate performed just fine, but just be very careful when screwing on the posts. *As a side note, you will need to remove quite a bit of the plastic factory bracing on the top and bottom of the stereo cutout in order to fit a double-din stereo. So just realize, that is a thing, it has to be done or it will not fit in the model truck.

Pros: Looks great Fits seamlessly

Cons: Not terribly durable material used.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It fit my truck perfectly! Just a head's up when purchasing this: you need something to melt down part of the backside of the plate to get it to adhere to the rest of the dash. It's easy, just stinks when you're melting it down!

Cons:

Quick and easy to install, had to drill out a few of the old connectors but no big deal. The surface is smooth unlike the factor original, which had a textured finish, hopefully it won't show too many finger prints.

Cons:

Radio Opening the wrong size

Phil from Lake Stevens, WA on 8/28/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The opening for the radio is a tiny bit smaller than the bezel. I was forced to trim the opening to get it to fit.

Pros: The bezel replacement was clean and came with all fasteners and adapters needed to replace the stock bezel.

Cons: The opening for the radio is a tiny bit smaller than the radio bezel. I was forced to trim the opening to get it to fit.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased a new Clarion double din head unit and was concerned at first as to how it would look in a dash that's designed only for a single din. After finishing the installation I was very pleased with the looks of the Metra 95-6522B dash kit.

Pros: Looks great, functionality

Cons: Requires some extra work for proper installation

Perfect Fit

I installed the dash kit on my 2003 Dodge Ram 2500 and the fit was perfect. It looks great. Removing the old one took time, I suggest watching a YouTube video on installment if available. I definitely recommend this product.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Fit and finish appear fine - the matte black is good choice. Major issue here was the missing mounting hardware - you are supposed to get 5 large spacers and screws and 2 small spacers and screws - one of the small ones and the screw was missing which left me trying to manufacture something to fit!1 NOT good!

Ray from Bogota, NJ on 11/12/2017

2003 Dodge Ram 1500
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Nice fit and easy install but AXXERA AV6117B did not fit the opening. The radio was too wide so I had to trim the opening for the radio to fit. Looks okay but more work than I expected. The radio mounting brackets are flimsy and I hope they hold up. What should have been an hour install turned out to be an afternoon project.

Pros: Looks decent when done

Cons: Make sure radio fits before starting installation!

First time installer here. This dash kit was very easy to use and it blends nicely with my vehicle's dash. Instructions were straightforward. Hardest part was separating the two parts of the factory dash trim so that I could install this. After I got the first weld separated, doing the rest was pretty easy. Fits nice and flush with my new receiver and the air conditioning controls fit nicely as well.

I would have given this 5 stars but was not impressed with the plastic mounting brackets provided with the kit. They seem very flimsy. I guess time will tell. Otherwise the unit fit perfectly in my Dodge Ram and the pioneer head unit looks great in its new space..

Cons: Plastic bracket for mounting head unit seem cheap

Fits good, you do have to test fit it and adjust the depth of the stereo in the dash so it fits flush against the stereo.

Pros: Works as intended

Cons: There are many mounting points for attaching the side mounts so there's a bit of test fitting and adjusting so the stereo sits flush against the dash kit.

Installation was smooth. Visual appearance is nice. Would liked to have kept the OEM wood grain look but I understand the difficulty in doing so. The Black/Grey still looks nice. My only complaint is a gap at the top adjacent to the dash but it's small and not a deal breaker but I'm taking one star off for the fit in that area.

Pros: Ease of install & general look.

Cons: Fitment at the top, adjacent to the dash top, has a small gap.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great item and fitment was prefect.

Pros: Fitment Ease of Installation Price

Cons: Smooth panel allows for very noticeable finger prints so I will be painting and color matching to my truck. Thickness around radio opening is pretty thick and doesn't allow the DDX372BT radio to stick out flush so the volume button is kind of a pain to turn so I'm gonna grind the back side down some to see if I can move fwd some.

Great replacement

Great fit easy install. Wasent crazy bout the mat finish. So I covered mine in brushed aluminum heat shrink vinyl. Wow now it really pops with a custom look.

Pros: Direct fit. Easy simple instructions. Excellent quality moulding.

Cons: Mat finish but blinded well with interior.

Perfect. Looks as if from the factory.

Jack P from Mississippi on 10/5/2015

2003 Dodge Ram 1500
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Nothing more to really say other than it fits perfectly in my 2003 Dodge Ram 1500. Wanted a double din radio installed. This worked and looks as if it was installed from the factory.

Pros: Look and fit are perfect.

Cons: I had to cut an inner piece of the dash in order to fit my radio, but it was pretty simple. This part itself worked exactly as advertised.

It did the job but..

Kenny from Florida on 10/1/2015

2005 Dodge Ram 1500
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This would not fit the double din Soundstream unit that I bought it for, I had to file away at the opening to get the head unit in. After I finally was able to squeeze the head unit in, the bezel for the head unit didn't have enough room to fit, so I ended up modifying the bezel too... Maybe the Soundstream 651b isn't standard double din size?!

Pros: Its in the truck with my new head unit.

Cons: I had to file away at the opening, I might as well cut up my existing dash...but this plastic is easier to work with.

Dash piece works great. Requires a little cutting but simple to do. Fitment is adjustable to you can move the radio to fit like it belongs there. Textured finish is gone, its just smooth plastic. Does look a little cheaper but I think I may paint match it to the vehicle later.

Pros: Good fit, easy to install

Cons: Cheap look compared to factory piece.

Worked great

Fit perfect ,painted to match the aluminum trim in my truck.watching the install on YouTube very helpful with removal ( drilling out plastic welds with 1/4 drill bit )

Pros: Easy fit

Perfect fit

Networkz from South Carolina on 8/5/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This dash kit was really made to look like it was from the factory. Easy to remove the old one and very easy to install the new dash kit. Everything you need is in the bag. Instructions were very clear and easy to understand.

Pros: Very easy to install Very clear instructions Everything needed came in the bag (except the tools) Looks like it came from the factory, blends perfectly

Cons: None

Extinct from North Alabama on 7/1/2015

2004 Dodge Ram 1500 SRT 10
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a well engineered dash kit, although the instructions could use an update. The fit is almost factory tight. The finish is flat so would be easily sprayed to match other.interior trim. Minor modifications to the sub structure are needed for radio fitment.

Pros: Almost factory fit, easily painted and finished, well designed.

Cons: Instructions for the disassembly of the factory dash could use clearer language.

I was skeptical about the quality and how it was going to look, however once I held it in my hands and had it in place you could not tell it was aftermarket. It was very easy to install and looks great!

Perfect fit and it was a breeze to install.

Worked great for adding Double DIN

Don from Arkansas on 5/20/2015

2004 Dodge Ram 1500
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This piece worked great for converting the dash of my 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 to Double DIN. It took a little time, but the process was pretty simple. Just be patient. Instead of just prying the old facia off the dash piece I drilled out the plastic spot welds and then pried them out.

Pros: Looks nice and matches the colors and dash panels nicely

Cons: It would have been perfect if it has the same texture as the factory piece it replaces, but that is really minor.

Gets the job done, not as nice as factory bezel...

Daniel from clovis, nm on 5/12/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The nice texture on the surface of the factory bezel is missing on this one. It has a bit of a cheap feeling, but it was free with my order and I don't see any better ones out there so it will do. not too hard to install either.

Pros: Not very hard to install and free with Crutchfeild head unit order over $119

Cons: Feels looks cheaper than factory bezel. Does not had grid texture like the factory bezel Either.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This fit my 2003 Dodge Ram Truck very good.

Pros: Nice fit with the truck and the double DIN stereo. Easy to install.

Cons: Time Consuming, and you need to cut out a portion of the "table" that held up the original manufacturers stereo (This modification is not visible when finished).

Looks Nice

This is a very nice alternative to having to send in your part, have it worked on then having to wait for it to comeback. not the mention the $$.

Pros: Looks OEM

Cons: Would have liked the radio brackets be metal but works well.

Perfect fit.

This dash bezel kit is superb. Solid material and nice matte finish.

Pros: Easy to install No glue mess Solid material Matte black finish Clear instructions

Cons:

Excellent adapter

ReidL from Oregon on 3/12/2015

2003 Dodge Ram 2500
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I had been looking at this adapter for a while and when I found the Kenwood 2 DIN radio I wanted learned that Crutchfield included it in the kit. This was a great bargain. The adapter performed exactly as expected and looks great. A word to the wise, the Metra instructions are very brief. Instead, look on YouTube for videos installing it. Again the Metra video is a great promotional tool but lousy instructions, but there were several others I easily found that stepped me exactly through the complete process. Which was really helpful since you do have to do some plastic cutting to fit in a double din.

Pros: Perfect fit excellent appearance easy installation

Cons: Poor instructions, but YouTube will take you through it

Soferio from Ohio on 3/7/2015

2004 Dodge Ram 2500
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The plasic welds on the back of the old one are easily removed with a careful drilling I used a 1/4 inch bit and touched the welds and it pops off. Be very careful when you tighten the screws on the new one because it will break very easily on the back.

Pros: Looks great, and looks stock

Cons: Breaks easily on the back.

easy install Matt black

Dakota M from Syracuse, IN on 2/26/2015

2005 Dodge Ram 2500
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Easy to install the old one was a little difficult to take off because of the plastic welds. The only bad thing about this product is that the radio sits almost too far in from the surface. Not sure if it is the radio or the new dash piece.

Pros:

Cons:

Perfect fit, but slightly disappointed that the new part is smooth finish rather than textured like the OEM part. Overall very happy.

Pros: Very good fit.

Cons: Doesn't look quite as good as OEM.

Came free with my purchase!

bret from Arizona on 12/5/2014

2005 Dodge Ram 1500
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Easy to medium installation. Written instruction not so intuitive. Overall the end product met my expectation.

Pros: Free with purchase of my 2DIN receiver, installation completed in approximately 45 minutes and matches my vehicle dash well.

Cons: A section from the original dash plate has to be re-used. Takes more than a screwdriver to dislodge the fused connections.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I like how the dash kit was able to blend in with the rest of dash, and easy for my installer to make changes for my new system. Good fit and looks good too.

Pros: Good fit and blends in well with the rest of the dash.

Cons: Limited to one texture on the dash kit.

fit perfect

Nick F. from Huntsville, AL on 10/3/2014

2005 Dodge Ram 1500
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This fit my 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 perfect. I had to cut out a bit of the radio opening in the dash with a saw (as the directions stated). The Chrysler radio is not as tall as as a double DIN. All said and done it looks great and everything went back in place like a factory install.

Pros: The entire process took two people less than an hour to swap out the radio.

Cons: Getting the old dash trim off the pieces that you will need.

Great Quality. Perfect fit for my 2003 Dodge Ram 1500. Item was on back order but came in way sooner than expected. Email notifications kept me informed with the status of my package all the way to my doorstep. Price was a great deal compared to other sites!

Pros: Instructions were easy to follow and installment was fast and simple.

Cons: None.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I've wanted to put in a double din stereo in my Ram since I purchased it and I now I finally can without spending tons of money on a custom job. Fit and finish are perfect and I couldn't be happier.

Pros: Price! Only $20 bucks, most websites are charging $60 or more for the same product. Installation was easy.

Cons: None, other than I wish someone would have invented this earlier. Kudos to Metra.

For additional details on fit or installation please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and give you the details on what fits and what you will need for an installation in your vehicle. [ Kenny  Feb 26, 2016 ]  Staff
no, just the black trim but you can buy vinyl to wrap it in. [ jimmy  Mar 17, 2015 ]
I only see black available. MetraOnline is their website and if you do a search for your make/model, they also do not list a wood grain model. [ Dave  Mar 16, 2015 ]
Just black. [ Nathan  Mar 15, 2015 ]
Any of them will. I put an alpine double din in and with a few modifications inside the dash it fit luminescent a glove. [ Julio  Nov 11, 2014 ]
From my limited understanding, "Double Din" is the size, meaning as long as it is a "Double Din" radio, the size is the same. Single-Din, Din-and-a-half (stock on my Dodge Ram 2500), and Double-Din radios are like saying Size 12, 14, and 16. To quote Wikipedia: "The US standard for a DIN radio is 2" x 7" (although the actual 180 mm width converts to something like 7-3/32" so most people use 7-1/8" to allow for clearance) and the Double DIN sized radio is a 4" x 7"..." (en wikipedia org/wiki/ISO_7736) [ RICHARD  Nov 03, 2014 ]
I used an Alpine ICS-X7HD which fit perfectly in my 2004 Ram. It requires some cutting of the plastic inside the dash which was easy enough to do but the radio fit the kit perfectly. ICS-X7HD Dimensions Din Size: 2-DIN Chassis Size (W x H x D) mm: 178 x 100 x 159 mm Chassis Size (W x H x D) in: 7?? x 3-7/8?? x 6-1/4?? [ Dave  Nov 03, 2014 ]
Double din is a standard size they will all fit. If it is a Dodge Ram you will have to modify the dash of the truck to allow it to fit. It is a very easy mod to do. [ Wesley  Nov 03, 2014 ]
I have a Kenwood DDX 470 and it fit perfectly. My guess would be any standard "double din" receiver. Takes a bit of modifying on the vehicle to fit but well worth the end result.hope this helps. [ michael  Nov 03, 2014 ]
Standard, 7 in screen [ Michael  Nov 03, 2014 ]
