Metra 95-6551 Dash Kit reviews
It does an okay enough job, though I struggled to get the right mounting depth/height on my new head unit to fit perfectly with the trim piece. Making cuts to both the trim bezel and the sub-bezel was a little stressful, even though I'm generally comfortable with a rotary tool. The fit and finish isn't incredible, but it gets the job done to give you a larger screen. The way the trim piece fits forces my head unit back in the dash, which makes the volume knob a little harder to get to. I may end up cutting it to allow the unit to come further forward at the risk of needing to buy another. I did this specifically to be able to add a backup camera to my truck.
Pros: Allows double-DIN unit
Cons: Cuts were challenging, not the nicest fit and finish

Finally a clean way to install a double DIN radio in a second gen Ram. The trim fits a little loose so I glued it in place once I was happy with the fit. Be prepared to take your time in trimming your dash. An airsaw or Dremel type tool is invaluable in trimming the dash. I gave it 5 stars because it awesome that Metra knows that people love second gen Ram trucks.
Pros: Good fit with some work.
Cons: Trim fits a bit loose but is easily remedied with some plastic cement once you are happy with the placement.
