Two Right Bracketsin Only in the Kit

Sam from Cottage Grove, OR on 8/29/2019

2009 Toyota Tacoma

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

The kit came with two right side brackets, no left bracket was included, so because of that they were both unusable. I had to use the factory brackets and wedge washers between the bracket and the mount so it would hold the faceplate against the dash because the stock brackets won't hold the new faceplate. Also, I had to cut out a leftover piece of plastic from when it was molded so the emergency light switch so it would work. Last but not least, the radio is recessed in the dash kit so it is hard to adjust the volume. I had to glue an extension on the knob to make it easier.

Pros: Looks really good

Cons: Came with two right side brackets Radio is inset/recessed in this kit making it hard to use the volume knob

Does what it's intended to and makes for a clean install!

It's a good piece, just wish the centerpiece would attach to face instead of the cheap plastic brackets when using a factory metal brackets to mount the radio. Other then that and the hazard switch slightly binding on the faceplate. It does the job and looks good.

Pros: Makes the radio look as close to OEM as possible. I like it, right texture and grain!

Cons: If they ever improve on it. Have the bezel attach to the face instead of the cheap brackets so we can use the much more robust metal OEM brackets.

Looks just like the OEM faceplate. Some guys working on the vehicle thought it was the OEM radio. The trim ring fit perfectly. We did have a little trouble with the mounting brackets. The radio was able to move slightly due to there flexibility. But these brackets will work fine. They are super adaptable with holes that will fit most radios. We ended up re-using the OEM metal brackets. Made the radio more stable.

Perfect form and fit. Used the exiting metal brackets from the old radio rather than the plastic ones that came with the dash kit.

Pros: Had a silver bezel on the the old radio. Chose black this time and glad I did. Looks stock.

Good but not great

Charles from Santa Barbara, CA on 7/18/2019

2010 Toyota Tacoma

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

This was free with my new head unit and beggars can't be choosers. My main complaint is the plastic mounting brackets for the head unit, they are pretty flexible and it allows the head unit to wiggle around in the dash a bit more than I like. I found that putting a few grade 8 flat washers under the upper mounting tabs where they bolt into the dash helped shim the radio forward a bit and made the fit somewhat tighter and more stable.

Pros: Looks very close to the factory dash plate

Cons: The fit of the trim plate is just OK, not bad but could be better. The plastic mounting brackets are a little too flimsy.

Michael from Port Republic Md on 7/12/2019

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Dash kit does fit the truck,however the fit to the radio face is not great. Seems secure in the dash no rattling and doesn't fall out,also the hazard button opening needed slight "massaging " so the button didn't stick. The plastic radio brackets seem secure once mounted.I may keep this time will tell but may want to try the schoche model for better fitment. If price is a factor this kit does work.

Pros: Inexpensive, does fit securely in dash.

Cons: Gaps around radio face,radio face filler panel doesn't fit well against dash panel

Product works, and looks like factory. Used factory metal mounting brackets for receiver instead of flimsy plastic units supplied with face piece.

Pros: Easy to install

Cons: Dimensions are not exact. Flasher button sticks slightly and unit protrudes slightly further (minuscule) than factory.

The texture design of the bezel matches the OEM design. But, the bezel does not mount flush along the top edge. See attached photo.

Pros: textured design on replacement bezel matches OEM bezel

Cons: using the supplied mounting bracket for the new Pioneer AVH-1550NEX and the purchased bezel, and ensuring that nothing is binding the installation, the top left and right corners of the bezel do not mount flush as compared to the OEM bezel

Great install kit. Didn't like the plastic brackets so re used factory radio ones and need to adjust with holes in aftermarket HU. Also need to leave all 4 bolts lose, hold HU up and install bezel first. If you want to match the silver color recommend painting the a/c vent bezel to match but not necessary.

Pros: Matches the old factory radio design

Cons: Plastic brackets and color slightly brighter than factory

Feels flimsy. The entire thing is warped so it doesn't fit properly, the hazard button is held so tight that it sticks and requires sanding to make it work. For the price I'd stay away. Go for Scosche instead.

Pros: Color and texture match

Cons: Cheap plastic Low quality build Warped to the point of not fitting

Crutchfield customer from Snohomish, WA on 3/4/2019

2007 Toyota Tacoma

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

This isn't horrible - it's ok and does the trick. When all done, it looks nice and has a factory look. It is a bit of a pain to assemble as the radio trim doesn't attach to the front panel until it is all bolted together, making it a bit awkward / clumsy while trying to do that.

Pros: Looks good when done

Cons: When installing, it is more complex that just aligning the stereo - you have balance that, the front, the middle trim and the 2 support arms which don't really snap in

Couple of tips to save time

Gary from Leechburg, PA on 2/14/2019

2009 Toyota Tacoma

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

2009 Tacoma . Here's the skinny guys ..Throw away the plastic side brackets and use the metal ones from your oem radio. You will use 3 holes ,the top two have a t for toyota.The 4th hole is just off and not used.Next thing , carefully file the hazard warning opening top and bottom to get zero drag on the switch. When you mount the radio with oem brackets it will go in perfectly. Now ,put the lil trim ring over the radio while lining up the snap in tabs on the large cover. Keep lined up while clicking trim piece into dash . Done Could have been better ,but the fact I could use solid steel oem brackets made it nice. For the price paid for this stuff....its a win win.

Pros: Free , gets it done ,close match to OEM

Cons: If the trim ring was incorporated into the large piece it would be perfect .

Weak

Crutchfield customer from Saco, ME on 12/16/2018

2011 Toyota Tacoma

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

After installing about 6 times. Using a heat gun to bend the PLASTIC MOUNTS, some electrical tape, using only three bolts because of twisting and using washers to space the radio correctly it's in. I'm sure I'll have to do it again after it starts to rattle. Not a fan. The faceplate Looks good when installed but needed to keep clock/flasher switch assembly mounting screws 1/8 turn loose from seating so switch would not stick. If this had worked correctly the radio would have been done in 30 min. However, 3 separate days of work, an hour a day, and it's finally acceptable. The real sad part is I'm ordering the steering control for this later on and I'll have to go through some more of this.

Use the trim, pitch the brackets.

Bryan from Owatonna, MN on 11/27/2018

2008 Toyota Tacoma

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

Regardless of how much I tried, I could not get the stereo and radio housing to position exactly where they should within the main trim panel. Because the mounting brackets are plastic, they have too much flex. It took many tries to get it close and it still was not right. I could also feel the stereo move slightly when touching the screen/knob/buttons. I finally decided to try the factory steel mounting brackets, which made the stereo feel very solid. Since the radio housing is designed to snap into the plastic mounting brackets, I had to position the housing over the stereo and install the trim panel over it. This resulted in perfect positioning of the stereo and housing within the opening and a rock solid feel. Could also glue the housing to the back of the trim panel, then install... The kit also caused some interference with the hazard light button. The button rubs on the left side and can get stuck in the "on" position. I was able to tweak the positioning slightly to make it work, but you can still see that it's off a bit. Since this kt is vehicle specific, I would expect tighter tolerances and equal quality/feel of the factory trim. I'm upgrading my stereo, why would I want to downgrade my trim in the process? The trim just doesn't have the same feel and precise/secure fit as the factory trim. Fit and finish is about 98%. Need that extra 2% to be perfect.

Pros: You can get the job done, but may require some adaptation. Pretty close match to factory trim.

Cons: Flex in the mounting brackets. Interferes with hazard light button.

I installed this in my 2005 Tacoma. The silver bezel looks factory but I cant get the radio bezel on the radio and the big silver bezel in the center of the dash together. The install instructions are not good. Rate the instructions a 1. I can see how it all should look and IF I can get it like that its a 5 star but I have been working on it on and off for a week. The plastic side brackets are flimsy.

Pros: Good concept but dont like the plastic mounting brackets.

Cons: Can get it all in the dash together. The radio mounts fine but is very wiggly, and I cant get the radio bezel on.

Puts a nice finish on the installation

Gary from Granite Falls, NC on 10/16/2018

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Used this unit to install a Pioneer AVH-201ex unit in a 2006 Toyota Tacoma. Product looks OEM now that it is installed. The trim band that gives that final smooth look snaps on 2 tabs on either side of the radio. The face plate wanted to keep popping off. I put 2 very small screws in each side - going through the back edge of the face plate and the tabs.

Pros: Looks really good once it's in. Uses Toyota's factory snap in contact points.

Cons: Might have to do a little finagling to get to unit sit in the dash just right - but it is achievable.

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

I wish I could say this is an awesome product, ordered two of them... Overall it goes in just like any other dash kit but that's about where the "easy" part ends. Regardless of any sort of adjustment I cannot get a right fit out of this lit, the faceplate surrond that clips to the stereo won't line up with the dash trim, the plastic stereo mounts seem to twist and pull the stereo out of square with the dash so you practically have to find ways to shim the stereo so it will hold square with the dash kit. I went through two of these because the first one showed up broken. Second one at least clipped in properly. I just don't know, Im seriously baffled that both the scoshe and metra kits are so imperfect and that there isn't one other company out there that could do this better.

Pros: Looks clean if you can get it to sit flush, black color is nice

Cons: No amount of adjustment can make this thing fit correctly, one bump and the face plate will pop behind the dash trim piece and then you have to pull everything apart to adjust it again.

The appearance isn't too bad but fit ins't good. Top part sticks out noticeably and I had to trim inside the hazard button hole to get the hazard button to work. Pretty much the only plus was the price since I bought it at the same time as my new deck.

Pros: It holds the radio

Cons: poor fit, hazard button sticks

Although the texture (in my opinion) is nicer than the Scosche version, I believe it is an overall inferior product due to two main factors: 1) The supplied receiver brackets are made of a plastic composite that is too soft, a double DIN will cause slight bending. 2) The cover itself has no apparent method to secure itself to the rest of the dash.

This dash kit looks exactly like the factory dash in my 2007 Toyota Tacoma. I have read complaints that it is cheap and flexible plastic. If you are careful when installing your head unit, you will not have any issues. I did use a little hot glue to eliminate any rattles that might happen later and it made me feel it was more secure. I also read that the texture was messed up on the bottom of the front plate. There were 2 spots where the texture had been smudged a little, but once the unit is installed, you can't even see it when you're looking for it. The fit and finish with this install kit looks perfect in my truck. Just take your time and be careful when installing.

Pros: Factory look Good fit Makes install look professional

Cons: The brackets aren't metal, but they work fine once installed.

Used this kit to install a new radio in my 2005 Tacoma. Fit and finish were good - matched the existing dash well. I was a bit skeptical about the plastic radio mounts, but they seem to be OK so far and don't allow any movement. The opening for the radio left a bit of a gap at the top of the radio face that could be seen looking up from below; before I installed the assembly, I put a strip of black plastic electrician's tape over the gap on the inside just to ensure that any light present in the dash would not show through. The result is an invisible and easy fix.

Pros: Good match to factory dash.

Cons: Would have preferred metal radio mounting brackets and a more positive mounting method to the front bezel.

Used this for install of Sony XAV-AX100 in 2011 Tacoma. Chose this over Scosche because texture matches perfectly with factory. The plastic mounting brackets could be more substantial, but thus far they have held up. Installed easily and looks great. Final facing is a little less secure than factory, but has not popped off or had any problems after 2 weeks. We'll see how it does off road next summer! Highly recommend for double din Tacoma installs.

Pros: Factory look & texture easy install

Cons: Plastic brackets (held up thus far, but metal would be preferable) Not quite as snug as factory (maybe to be expected)

This is a good kit but I had a couple issues. After installing everything unit was off center so I had to loosen mounting screws, center unit in trim plate then tighten screws. Hopefully it stays put. It would be helpful to put that in instructions. Also, the plastic seems kinda cheap but we'll see how it lasts.

It works. There's really not much to this product. When ordering it says that the color is gray but in reality it's silver, just like the factory radio faceplate. There are 4 phillip head screws that come with it and they should probably have a smaller size head. They're used for the lower section where the clock and airbag display are.

Pros: It works

Cons: The supplied phillip head screws should have a smaller size head.

While a scosche better than the competition, Metra could use better QC. I had to ask Crutchfield for a replacement because the original unit had scratches and casting issues. Despite getting another (without any hassle - Thanks, Crutchfield) I still had to sand off bits and repaint the entire face to match the Tacoma's interior color. Metra's is the closest to acceptable of the two brands available, but it seems a shame that Metra can't get their Chinese partners to provide better final build quality.

Pros: It fits Styling

Cons: Requires finishing (sanding/painting) Difficult to center/square at install Plastic parts that should be metal

The package was missing bracket F and the clips were too short. The clips did not lock in on the bezel and pulled off after pushing the bezel in.

Great match from factory dash cover. Texture and color are expertly done to match. Fit perfectly around factory components and new double DIN aftermarket radio. Seats perfectly and flush to the dash. A bit brighter in color versus adjacent dash, but hardly noticeable.

Pros: Perfect fit to new aftermarket radio and factory dash Looks like factory equipment Great match on texture and finish to factory

Cons: Finish on the bottom was a bit rough and appears to be the injection molding point. Cannot be seen, but was rougher than expected.

I thought the plastic mounts were not terribly rugged. also the screw adjustment slots did not allow for the plastic frame to be moved forward enough for the frame to fit securely into the over all radio dash frame.

Not the best dash kit

Mike from Morrisville, VT on 5/31/2017

2007 Toyota Tacoma

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

Maybe it was partly the vehicle and partly this kit, but putting a double din head unit in a 2007 was fairly complicated, compared to same era Subaru's and the previous generation Tacoma. The fit is not the best where the kit meets the bottom of the unit and the hazard flasher button gets hung up when it's put on. I also do not like the plastic mounting brackets that go from the faceplate to the sides of the head unit. They felt a bit flimsy. I would have much preferred a metal part for this as the original dash mounting system has. Not sure that there are any alternatives out there.

Pros: Looks just like the original stereo surround

Cons: Not an exact fit and a bit flimsy

Although everything fit together fine, I wanted to still use my old factory radio metal mounting brackets instead of the plastic universal brackets. The plastic had to be used in order to use the bezel that fit around the JVC KW-R925BTS stereo I purchased. The outside finish of the dash kit matched what I removed from my Toyota dash so thumbs up for that.

It's great that it comes with the replacement faceplate, in taking the old system out, I broke the original one, plus the original one would not have worked with the new system anyway.

Gives a nice factory look, just wish the head unit wasn't so recessed. It's kinda hard to use the volume knob on my Kenwood touchscreen due to being recessed making it somewhat hard to use the rotary knob which was a big reason I wanted this model.

Pros: Clean fit, looks factory

Worked pretty good. The plastic brackets are a little weird, I would rather have had metal ones like the stock radio came with but they won't transfer over to this faceplate. It works and the faceplate matched my dash perfectly. Getting the hazard light and clock thing out of the factory faceplate was described as "challenging" - they were not kidding. I probably destroyed my factory plate in the process so there was no going back!

This item looks like the original and it seems to be ok, the problem with it is there are clearance issues with the Tacoma and I wish the outer trim ring could be put on after the radio is mounted but it has to be mounted to the head unit and the large backing piece is hard to get everything lined up with out the outer trim popping off and then you have to take everything apart to reattach it.

Pros:

Cons: Hard to get everything lined up.

Tacoma Faceplate - Poor Design

Rob from Sahuarita, AZ on 3/5/2017

2009 Nissan Altima

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

Absolutely the worst product I've utilized for a stereo install in over 35 years! *Would recommend Crutchfield look for a different supplier for a dash kit for a Toyota Tacoma. The fitment of the exterior dash faceplate was good, being the black one, but it has one less tab to 'secure' it than Toyota's original. The hazard/clock assembly came with a broken tab out of the bag so I couldn't secure it properly and square it up to the dash plate. Probably the Most disappointing part is that the stereo brackets are Flimsy Plastic! Are you kidding me? How does Crutchfield allow such inferior products on his line up? For a DDIN stereo, you Need steel plates, the way Toyota designed it! Absolutely not up to the task. The fitment does Not allow a complete smooth finish, it is off, crooked recessed. After screwing with the securing bolts, it's a loss. The flimsy, soft plastic mounts will simply not permit a smooth and squared finish. For this, I'm incredibly disappointed if not angered at coming to learn this from a first time Crutchfield purchase. In my life, I would have never thought they would provide such a crappy and unresolving product line up. I actually used to do stereo installs in Washington D.C. for over five years so from an experienced POV, this is shameful. I would Not recommend this face kit for a DDIN stereo. I see that some people have attempted to reuse the original steel brackets and somehow glue or attach the faceplate on.

Pros: Color, style looks genuine.

Cons: Flimsy plastic all around makes fitment impossible. Fear plastic parts will not last in Tucson heat! Does not stay secured in the dash (Pops out of dash to easily). Does not hold radio straight in dash. (After an hour of adjusting and removing the radio; still crooked) The stereo adapter will not stay secure in the face place because all of it is easily jarred out of place. It can't handle normal driving and the stereo unit moves easily from what should be a fixed position.

Pretty good dash kit. Got because Crutchfield recommended. This matches texture on dash already. I think the other one they have is smooth. Plastic brackets are flimsy as everyone says. So you have to hold and push into right spot as you tighten bolts. I see it sitting out slightly from dash. Not sure anybody else notices.

Pros: Matches textured areas, color match pretty close, decent instructions with it

Cons: Flimsy plastic brackets, fit is not perfect

Good kit, but not 100% turnkey, for a good outcome you need to reuse the metal brackets off the factory radio, and the factory clips, I also used a little double sided 3m foam tape on the sides to take out any rattles, now it looks factory clean and is plenty strong. The face looks factory and is a good match, but again a little fitting and common sense install skills are required. 08' TRD Tacoma and Apline INE-928HD.

Pros: Looks factory, good finish.

Cons: Bad brackets and clips, best results require reuse of factory metal brackets and clips

Wondered about how well a double DIN would look in the Taco. No worries at all. Looks as good as stock with the fit and dropped right in.

Pros: The best part was probably the two piece fitment. Made it easy to put the receiver in solid, then follow up with the trim piece along with the clock/hazard install.

Cons: The clock/hazard install area wasn't as good a fit as the rest. Works, but looks just a little off (probably no one else will notice, but I do).

Poor Quality

Kevin from Florida on 8/26/2016

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

Really not impressed with this product at all. I purchased it to mount my Pioneer AVH-4100NEX and although it does the job, it does it very poorly. The mounting brackets are plastic and very flimsy. The radio bounces around in the dash with any little bump in the road and forget going off-road unless you take your radio out before hand. The clips that come with the dash kit area also low quality and have already worn out after having to remove them a few times to try and fix the mounting issues with the brackets. I am really surprised that this is the only real option for Tacoma owners with the black dash scheme. I am just going to have to look for an alternative option, even if it means customizing something. The current setup just will not work

Pros: Texture of the kit looks nice.

Cons: Mounts are too flimsy to be of any use. Clips are useless so try to keep the OEM ones. Only 2 mounting points with the new brackets vs the 4 that are used with the OEM brackets.

I was a bit let down with this kit. First of all, there were pieces missing (mounting screws and dash clips). Luckily I was able to pick up a pack of screws at a local big hardware store and I pulled the dash clips off my factory panel to make it work. I will say Crutchfield was ready to send me a new kit no questions asked but I already had everything torn apart and didn't want to go that route if at all possible. Secondly, the panel and trim pieces feel flimsy compared to the factory panel. Since they are not as stout, it is hard to get everything snapped into place, the pieces want to flex and try to pop out. I know there aren't many options out there but it just seems this could easily be made more similar to the factory pieces. Overall it works and I am generally happy with it but it could be better.

Bruce from Coushatta, LA on 7/27/2016

2007 Toyota Tacoma

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

Overall the kit did well. The side mounting brackets are a little flimsy, but once the unit is back in the truck, it is ok. It was very easy to switch over the OEM clock and flasher unit to the Metra bezel. Actually, it is easier to put that bar into the Metra bezel than take it out of the stock bezel. You get new clips for the Metra bezel and that was nice or you can reuse your old ones. It looks great in the dash. I had the stock gray bezel and switched to the black bezel and it really breaks up all the gray/silver in the middle of the dash.

Pros: Texture on bezel looks great with the OEM materials around it. Easy install and looks great when all done.

Cons: Side mounting brackets are a little flimsy, but once the unit is installed back into the dash, it firms up.

Looks Nice, but........

Captain Mac from Colchester, VT on 6/9/2016

2005 Toyota Tacoma

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

After getting this installed, the stereo moved around in the mount due to the lack of strength of the plastic brackets. The factory stereo that came out used steel brackets. While the new face plate matched my truck's factory interior quite nice, the face plate only had 4 clips to the factory's 5 and do not stay in place should you be driving down a bumpy road. Combine that with the flimsy plastic brackets and you have a very cheap, yet good looking, installation. I called to technical support to see if maybe I had simply gone the cheap route and wanted to buy metal stereo mounts. Nope, only plastic are available.

Pros: Looks good sitting in the driveway.

Cons: -Plastic stereo mounts have no structural integrity. -Face plate has one less mounting clip and will not stay secure. -The stereo adapter will not stay secure in the face place because all of it is easily jarred out of place. -All of this looks good, but it can't handle normal driving and the stereo unit moves easily from what should be a fixed position.

I'm not sure if there is a better bracket out there to replace the factory one, but this one is not high quality. The flasher and clock don't sit quite the same, the pattern on the plastic isn't perfectly even, and it seems a bit flimsy. That said, it did install easily and sits almost perfect. I was worried that it would bounce out of place because the mounts are plastic and the clips didn't feel secure. However, after two hours of off roading everything is still in order.

Pros: No issue with bracket coming out.

Cons: Not the same quality as Toyota.

Going through the assembly, the product just seemed cheap, the mounts did not include screws that were long enough to use with the Pioneer head unit I installed, had to go collect screws that were 5mm longer to feel like they would stay secure while in my dash. Installation took some time to keep the mounting screws loose so that you can align the unit to your dash and get everything to align. The main dash cover matches the original very well but doesn't look to be flush as the factory cover looked.

Pros: Looks like stock, cost effective.

Cons: screws too short, mounting it all together in the dash took some time and patience.

The Scosche TA2053B Kit is far better

Crutchfield customer from Connecticut on 9/29/2015

2011 Toyota Tacoma

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

I got the Metra dash kit with the receiver that i purchased and the install was fairly straight forward. The metra kit has the same surface finish as the stock tacoma receiver, but that's its only good attribute. The silver dash kit is just the black dash kit painted silver. The paint job is sloppy and there is a lot of overspray on the back of the panel (its hidden from view but its poor craftsmanship). The top of the panel only has 2 tabs where the dash clips attach (stock receiver has 3) and the length of the tabs doesnt match the dimension on the clip. The length dimension mismatch causes a loose fit and the loose fit causes the entire panel to vibrate. The buzzing sound created by the poor fit is the reason that i purchased the Scosche kit. The length of the tabs also does not allow the dash kit to sit flush with the dash itself and makes the entire kit look like it doesnt belong.

Pros: Surface finish matches stock receiver. Easy install

Cons: poor quality, attachment points dont match stock, bad fit allows dash kit to vibrate and buzz

Better than expected

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I had expected to NOT like this, and to have to order the Scosche (spelling?) mounting kit from another source. Reviews online had me expecting a Metra kit that would not be acceptable. The kit I got has the textured silvery finish, and it matches the rest of my textured dash very nicely. Nobody has suspected that it is NOT a factory component. I did think the way the side plates (bolted to the headunit) just loosely "snap" into the mounting frame is a bit cheesey, but so far it is holding the head unit in place.

Pros: - matches textured dash finish MUCH more closely than I expected - fairly simple to install

Cons: - mounting system could be a bit more robust.

Brackets are flimsy plastic at best. Worst part are the clips that can't stay on and fall into the dash. WHY? Who was in charge of making the clips for this unit? Dumb, just dumb.

Pros: Decent look when completed.

Cons: Clips. Flimsy plastic.

OK for the price I paid (free with receiver), acceptable color match, fits dash opening fairly well after some tweaking. Next time I'll buy the Scosche brand adapter.

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Fair color match, ok (but not great) fit. Clock & Flasher Switch fit marginally well in cutout. I guess you get what you pay for

I had no problems with this kit. I bought a double din radio and it fit right in my Tacoma. It is sturdy. I did have to take a razor knife and widen the hazard light opening a little.

Pros: Looks good. Fits nicely. Easy to use.

Cons: It is hard to get the clock out of the Toyota dash. Just be ready to fiddle. I would add that to any install kit for a Tacoma.

For the free with purchase price its a steal. The fit requires a bit of adjustment. Overall its a near perfect match to the factory piece. It likes to rattle after its all settled in after a week. Nothing a person with a little imagination cant fix.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I'm mixed on my review of this product. Once installed, it looks great. The panel matches the rest of the interior perfectly as far as I can tell. I do have a couple of issues with it, however. The brackets that screw on to the receiver are flimsy plastic. They really should be metal. It seems sturdy once you get it fully installed, but a few times I was worried about breaking the plastic. My second issue is with the dash panel binding/interfering with the operation of the motorized display of my Pioneer AVH-4000NEX. When I first installed it, the screen would not tilt out the way it's supposed to. When I removed the outside dash panel, it worked fine, so I figured it was binding somewhere, most likely along the top edge, so I planned to trim a bit of plastic along the top of the opening. A week later, the screen is now working without me making any mods to the dash kit. The weather has warmed up here considerably since I installed, so I'm thinking the plastic probably expanded enough to allow the screen to operate as it should. It still seems a bit tight at the top, so I plan to still do some trimming. For these reasons, I'm only giving this product 3 stars.

Pros: Looks great, matches stock interior perfectly

Cons: Brackets are flimsy plastic May interfere with operation of receivers with motorized display

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Good job of matching color and texture of exposed parts but that is it. Plastic brackets are as flimsy as any i have seen in 20 years. The kit is designed so the filler panel attaches to the plastic brackets via friction fit. Do NOT use these trash brackets. Use the factory steel brackets and attach the filler panel with adhesive. Shame on Crutchfield for selling this. I have come to expect far better. But using my plan and factory brackets (which are flawless on my AVH-X2600BT) you can have a nice, solid install with factory fit and finish nearly.

Pros: Color/texture matching

Cons: Brackets are worthless to anyone with standards

It works, and it looks decent. Unfortunately the bezel is a little larger than I would have liked, but unlike the pictures it is silver/gray to match. I would have appreciated a more flush fitting look tilting the stereo to be flat on the front like the factory unit. Also the brakets that hold the radio in place are plastic unlike the stock metal ones, so they feel a little flimsy.

Tight fit in my 05 tacoma. Just make sure you get the mounting tabs lined up even when you screw them to the radio. Had to do some adjusting but all and all went pretty quick and is pretty flush with everything.

Pros: Looks almost like stock

Cons: Mounting brackets when you blot it up could give you a lilttle bit more wiggle room to adjust to fit better.

The dash kit for my 2005 Tacoma has a poor fit. I should not expect much for a free kit with the purchase, but I have had much better luck with items delivered from Crutchfield in the past. The dash cover does not snap in tight and the head unit is set back in just a little too far. I am going to have to alter this unit completely for a good fit. At the moment it is in, but only ok.

Pros: Looks nice, much like the factory in finish and design.

Cons: Poor fit. must be altered for a good clean fit and finish.

The metra fit is supposed to be superb.... The instructions show 4 screws on both sides to hold radio to bracket. However! They only supplied 6, 2 less than needed... Also, the radio is misaligned and keeps slipping down and to the side and the bracket will keep rattling. My advice is, make the pictures larger so people can see where the screws are to go.

Less than good Kit

BrandonC from Atlanta, GA on 5/9/2014

2008 Toyota Tacoma

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

Below standard kit. Pattern matches dash well but silver is too bright, therefore the color does not match. Installed Kenwood DDX-7701HD and it sits crooked inside the kit. Also, the Hazard Light Switch does not fit into place well and if the cover pops out (which it does when driving over speed bumps) when you push it back into place the Hazard Lights come on. Had to use the factory retainer clips because the clips provided in kit would not hold it into place. Would recommend Crutchfield look for a different supplier for a dash kit for a Toyota Tacoma.

Pros: Exact Dash Pattern Texture

Cons: Does not stay secured in the dash (Pops out of dash to easily). Does not hold radio straight in dash. (After an hour of adjusting and removing the radio; still crooked) Does not Hold Hazard Switch into place correctly.

The product does what it is supposed to do, and the color and finish is an exact match to the dash. My wife says it looks great. I disagree. The bracket that goes around the radio is loose, and does not fit flush to the trim. 80% of the people who buy this will be happy with it, I am a perfectionist, and am not happy with it. However, being it is the only option for my truck, I have no other choice.

2006 Toyota Tacoma

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

Installed a Pioneer FH-X700BT last week in my 06 Tacoma and they sent this as the install kit. The color is pretty close to the stock interior and it sits nice and flush with the rest of the dashboard. Used the clips from the stock mount as the ones supplied didn't seem to grab as tight allowing it to not sit as flush with the dash. Would have been a real easy install if everything lined up right but after trying many different options I still was not able to get the bottom bolts in that hold the bracket to the dash. It seems like it needs to down and back 3/4" to be able to not put stress on the right side of the receiver because it pops out from the hold down bracket allowing the receiver to almost fall out. Going to mess with a bit more this weekend when I install the rear access door speakers since the Tacoma dash is so easy to take apart again. I don't know if its the receiver or this mount but I will try again to get to fit a bit better but it works fine for now.

Pros: Color and look match pretty good and it looks almost stock Hazard, Clock and Passenger Airbag unit fit in great without any issues Comes with Crutchfield purchase and better than the other options out there for looks

Cons: See review for installing trouble Feels cheap

The equipment looks very good. It matches the overall factory scheme of the vehicle, and the bumped texture really adds a nice finishing touch. My only con with this piece is that, even with proper installation, it rattles slightly at times. It's almost as if the kit doesn't fit into the sockets fully making it feel a bit insecure. I don't think that it would come off with regular use, but it didn't "snap" in as tightly as I would've liked.

Pros: Nice looking, factory themed, easy install

Cons: Slightly odd sizing makes the faceplate feel a bit insecure.
