It needed lots of love to fit properly.

Pros:

Cons: It didn't fit tight at all. I had to belt sander it to get it to sit properly in it's place. Not the end of the world,but I don't remember having to customize in the past.

Looks great with quality materials....

Chris from Colorado Spgs, CO on 12/13/2018

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Looks great with quality materials and covers the Pioneer AVH-2440NEX perfectly. The clips for the larger tray part didn't work that well and the tray wouldn't lay down flat on the dash at one end. I took the lower clips out and it lays don't flat with no gaps. I think it will be fine like this and won't mess with it unless a problem arises. They could do a better job on the clips, which are plastic and don't work well with the metal female OEM part the clips snap into. The OEM male parts were metal.

Pros: Looks great and matches up well with the receiver bezel.

Cons: Plastic clips don't work well.

The parts for this kit are clumsy, the trim does not go in flush and the clips are useless. I have to use the original clips just to hold the front panels.

So glad they asked to review. Here's the positive: You have a option to mount an aftermarket radio. Here's the negative: Too expensive for the quality. What is the quality? The stock clips don't hold at all, you'll have to remove the OEM ones. The kit doesn't sit flush under the vents, you'll constantly try to push it down without success. The tray above the radio that's included has gaps (bowed appearance). There's a almost one inch gap in the DIN cutout face at the bottom or the top of the radio, there's no way to remove it. Any the most important thing to realize when you buy this (I did not, no one tells you including Crutchfield), you have to cut the factory radio support out of your dash!!! This is not just a piece of a mounting bracket, it is literally, your dash. If you wanted to go back OEM, you'd have to buy a whole new dash for your Transit. No exaggeration. I wouldn't have considered this if I would have known that.

Pros: 1

Cons: Many

My kit was missing the bag of clips but I emailed Metra and they sent them to me. One thing not mentioned in the instructions that you need to do is remove the factory metal inserts in the dash for the Metra plastic clips to work right. Everything doesn't clip in quite as good as factory but everything looks good and nothing is popping off or anything. I also don't have any kind of gap whatsoever around my radio. Maybe some radios are a little small or maybe people aren't properly aligning there radios with the mounting brackets??? I'm happy with the end product and I'm pretty picky.

Gap Under Stereo, Terrible Clips

David from Floyd, VA on 6/27/2018

2018 Ford Transit Cargo

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

I was not happy with this dash kit for my 2018 Ford Transit Cargo Van. The 2-din space is oversized, leaving about an 1/8" gap at the bottom through which wiring is visible (see attached picture). I had to trim a piece of ebony to fill the gap, which looks fine, but I don't feel like I should have to modify a kit that is supposedly specifically designed for my model year family. Online forums for Transit owners are full of other folks complaining about this gap. Additionally, the clips that hold the kit into the dash are awful. The worst offenders are the two clips at the very bottom of the front panel (that has the oversized rectangle cutout for the head unit). The cheap plastic clips provided are sized so poorly that they actually hold the kit away from the dash and prevent it from clipping in (see attached picture). It is, no joke, dramatically more functional if you remove those two clips entirely and just have no actual physical connection at the bottom of this piece. It then sits fairly flush against the factory dash. I wouldn't even have considered this except that, once again, Transit owner forums are packed with people recommending removing the clips entirely for this part of the kit. The top tray piece also fits poorly and bumps out slightly in the middle. It's clearly further poor design having largely to do with inadequate/incompatible clips (which seems pretty silly/lazy on Metra's part). All that said, this is your only option, so an extra s

Pros: Only option for providing factory-look for aftermarket kit

Cons: Gap under stereo, clips are not compatible with factory slots, top tray doesn't sit fully flush

Great kit by Metra

Way exceeded my expectations. This kit was so easy to install, instructions were spot on with good illustrations, and the finished product looked perfectly "stock". Metra has certainly done their homework on this kit.

Pros: Easy install, great looks

Cons: NONE

Looks OK, securing to dash was an issue.

Avery from Covington, GA on 4/9/2018

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

I've been buying and installing products from Crutchfield since 1978. I'm always impressed with their trim kits. This one "looks" OK, but it doesn't secure to the dash very well. The clips provided did not grip the inserts properly. had to apply some southern engineering to secure some parts. There is also a gap under the head unit that should not be present. It has to have a small gap because of the way the head face opens to gain access to the cd and media slots, but there is at least 1/4" to 1/2" too much gap beyond what was needed. I can almost stick my finger in the exposed gap. I may have to later apply more southern engineering to remedy that issue.

Pros: General appearance is OK.

Cons: Does not stay secured to dash with the provided clips. Had to improvise to get a tighter fit.

All the plastic trim parts fit perfectly and look good. Front panel will not seat properly. My beef is with the cheap clips that don't hold.

Q
Is there a way to use this kit to install a single DIN head unit to replace ONLY the factory radio and retain the 4.2" screen and a functional backup camera?
[ Antonio  Jul 26, 2017 ]
3 answers
A
Because of how integrated the system is, I highly doubt you can get it to work like that. You will need to replace the whole radio. Even if you could, you would need to do a lot of fabrication to install a single din radio and keep the screen.
[ Isaiah  Jul 26, 2017 ]
A
Antonio, my Transit did not have a 4.2" screen and my back up camera is shown in the edge of the rear view mirror. I installed a single DIN head unit and put the pocket piece below to fill in the space. Im not sure if this helps.
[ David  Jul 26, 2017 ]
A
The way this kit is designed it is not possible. I went with a pioneer 4200 new unit and the back up camera is finally useable with the much bigger screen.
