Overview

Your 1997-2002 Jeep Wrangler is a great vehicle, but the stock center console makes it difficult to upgrade the factory radio. Metra's 95-6549 dash kit allows you to install a new double-DIN (4" tall) receiver in your vehicle's dash panel, while maintaining all factory controls. The black painted finish matches your factory dash.

New life to old Jeep

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Kit worked well. Had to read the instructions a few times to figure out that you need to remove the metal retaining clips from the factory bezel and reinstall on this one. Used to hold the bezel in place at the bottom. Everything fit well. Have to play with radio fitment using the two "ears" that are installed on the head unit. Had to try a number of times to get the head unit to fit flush or into the cutout for the double din unit. The blank panel insert on the right would be good to cut and install switches or accessories. The ashtray replacement insert that goes on the right seems a bit useless. At the angle it sits, anything that you place in this "cubby" would fall out. Will probably change mine out for the blank instead.

Pros: Good fit Good quality

Cons: Lower Right organizer seems useless Air vents seem loose in new bezel

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I'm shocked this isn't made by MOPAR. Fit is excellent, given you make a few modifications while installing. You've already got your dash ripped out anyway, right? First, there are a few anchor points, but not as many as factory, so work around that; I didn't want to drill anymore holes, so I lined most of the contacting edges (toward the inside edge) with insulating foam tape. Second, to fight any kind of rattle, I also lined most of it with some leftover strips of Dynamat. YMMV, but you may need to bend out the bottom two clips from your factory dash to reestablish a tight connection. Honestly, just use the little "storage bin" for change in your bedroom -- the angle at which it sits in the TJ basically gives you the ability to hold change on flat ground while stationary. The other option is a blank panel which looks factory anyway. There is a step where you have to remove a support brace inside -- I had to use a hacksaw for the first half and then finish with just the blade due to the tight space, but that portion of the install took about 3 minutes max -- do not fear this step! Finally, yes, your rubber console liner on the top (sunglasses/wallet/sunflower seed tray) fits nicely into the plastic replacement you see above. Factory appearance and now I have Waze/Spotify in my 19 year-old Wrangler (*does the Carleton dance*). Excellent product, and frankly, a great value.

Pros: Looks very black in photos but is almost exactly the right color, allows for double-din placement, easy install

Cons: *May* require one or two modifications depending on how OCD you are; storage bin angles are funky

Really bad product it eliminates the ashtray and it doesn't look good, had to make adjustments to the a/c controller to fit and the radio has a free space between the console. Doesn't recommend it

Does what it says on the tin. Great way to modernize my nearly 20 year old jeep. Now I have a double din system with Appleplay just like the new cars!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It looks good and fits. However there are a few flaws with this product. The original center bezel is held on by 3 screws and 4 friction clips. This unit is designed to be held on by only 2 of the screws and 2 of the friction clips. Additionally the factory unit had provisions for pins on the back that have rubber isolation pads slipped on. As anybody who is looking at this product knows, Jeep TJ's are not the smoothest riding vehicles ever built. As a result it rattled like crazy. As a result the new bezel rattled like crazy. Enough to drive me insane even over the continuous noise of a soft top Jeep. I was able to fix it with a couple of strategically placed screws and all is well now (except I have a couple of visible screws). I just don't understand why they didn't incorporate enough mounting support on the product. So 3 stars for a decent product that wasn't quite as good as I had hoped.

Pros: Looks good

Cons: Rattles, rattles, rattles.

Overall, I am satisfied with this dash kit. I did have to modify the radio opening with an exacto knife because it was too small. The mounting brackets they included were flimsy plastic. The instructions were very good and easy to follow.

Need this to put a double din radio in the vehicle [ Theresa  Feb 26, 2019 ]
So the unit would look good when installed [ Joseph  Jan 30, 2019 ]
New car stereo [ Toby  Jan 11, 2019 ]
This is required based on the unit I purchased. I am going from a single din to a double system. [ Tim  Dec 20, 2018 ]
So I can install a double Din in my Jeep Wrangler TJ [ CHAD  Dec 05, 2018 ]
Only one I found made specifically for '97-'02 Jeep TJ. Others were for '03-'06 and required some modification to fit my '01. Hopefully this will be direct fit. [ Craig  Nov 22, 2018 ]
The only kit with all needed parts [ scott  Nov 20, 2018 ]

1 question already asked

Mine was the same way, it does away with the middle clips and relies solely on the clips on the bottom. It worked ok but not great. The two bottom clips on the replacement dash piece didn't line up with the stock clips very well and I ended up having to run a small screw through the very bottom of the dash kit and into the plastic behind it to hold it in. I would have returned it but this is the only option I could find for a double din so I made it work [ Zachary  Mar 15, 2019 ]
