About the Metra 99-6514B Dash and Wiring Kit
Metra's 99-6514B dash and wiring kit allows you to install a single-DIN (2" tall) or double-DIN (4" tall) car stereo in the dash panel of your Dodge Charger, while retaining your car's information display. This package also includes the wiring harness adapter to integrate your new radio to the Dodge's stock wiring plugs. That way, you won't have to cut the factory wiring for your installation. The package only works in Chargers with the base audio system — it will not work in vehicles with the factory Alpine system.
The dash kit is a perfect match for the texture and contours of your dash, and it comes in a matte black finish. Warranty: 1 year.

Metra 99-6514B Dash and Wiring Kit reviews
Overall a pretty good product, which is good since it's the only option for us 4.3 inch Charger owners. Out of box the kits is good quality with clear instructions that result in nice fit and appearance in car. My new DDIN unit looks great! I chose to modify/add functionality to the kit 1. Added a female micro usb to male standard usb adaptor to retain factory remote usb outlet in center console. 2. Used Charger wiring diagram to tap into and add male AUX plug to retain factory remote AUX outlet in center console. 3. Disassemble 12 volt power plug from discarded factory cubby, drilled a one inch hole filed a small slot in the lower left side of kit dash panel to retain factory power outlet. There is plenty of clearance on and behind the lower left corner. 4. Removed and rerouted small led ambient light from discarded factory cubby and installed it in top of small factory cubby located below 4.3 inch display. Some of the buttons require two taps to activate. Also, the Charger has a 9 volt power signal from the factory radio that travels through the vehicle within the factory antenna coaxial cable to the antenna module. The module, located behind the passenger C-pillar trim, is an antenna amplifier powered by the 9 volt signal. Once the cable is separated from the factory radio the antenna module signal is lost, which leads to poor radio reception. I've yet to find a way to tap the 12 volt remote signal from my new head unit into the original co
Pros: Nice fit, great appearance, easily modified to retain ALL factory functions
Cons: A little work from Metra to complete the kit could easily make kit great.

I expected better for spending well over a few hundred for this kit. I got it to work, but with modifications. Had to break tabs, due to hvac cables, had to thicken top tabs, so they would lock in, side tabs, catch radio screen when rotating, more major issues to me was, loss of 12 volt plug with no access to now get to it, it's covered by lower part of in dash cover, sometimes rubber buttons take more then one bump "press" to activate. The internal box that connects to harness, some how now disabled my DRL s function, and some other settings, and after the car sleeps a while, my screens are in a foreign language infill after first startup. If there was another maker of this dash kit I could find, I would try theres, even if I burned the money I did pay for this kit. Just disappointed of what I got for what I paid, expected better. Contacted metra about these issues, still no reply from 2 weeks ago.
Pros: It did work, to some extent and some modifications, boxes were somewhat plug and play.
Cons: Had to slightly mod and cut on in dash piece to get it to not catch radio screen while rotating. Hvac cable in way of tabs. Loss of 12 volt plug, due to being covered by in dash cover, loss of some factory settings, and weird language change from controller.dash cover does not sit flush with dash completely.

Bought this for my 2015 Dodge Charger and found that it sits a half inch to deep and does not sit flush with the Dash. I'm having a local shop trying to put it in but even they say its something they don't think they can do and they have been trying for 2 weeks.
Pros: Awesome if it would sit flush.
Cons: Does not sit flush with the Dash. More than likely have to return it.

it looks nice, but had to reroute the cables, which wasn't in the instructions and still can't get it to sit flush in the dash- has about half inch gap on the right side. I'm gonna end up paying a professional installer to correct it
Pros: looks nice if it would sit flush with the dash, buttons feel nice and not cheap
Cons: it doesn't sit flush with the dash, had to use tape to attach the stereo to the back of it

More details on the Metra 99-6514B Dash and Wiring Kit
Vehicle Compatibility: The Metra Turbo Kit 2 (99-6514B) is designed specifically for select 2011-up Dodge Chargers (with factory 4.3" Screen and no factory amp). The 99-6514B allows you to replace your Chrysler factory stereo with an aftermarket navigation receiver to improve your factory audio system and enhance your driving experience.
Automotive Install Kit with Integrated AC/Heater Control: The installation kit fits both double-DIN and single-DIN aftermarket head units. The kit features high-grade ABS plastic and is contoured to match your vehicle's factory dashboard color (matte black) and texture. An included 6.375" (w) x 1.3125" (h) x 4.6875" (d) pocket is provided for single-DIN head unit installation. The install kit retains your vehicle's factory AC, heater, and hazard controls with integrated soft-touch buttons. Your vehicle's 44-pin factory harness will plug into the 44-pin connector on back of the installation kit.
Interface Module w/ Wiring Harness: The Metra Turbo Kit 2 (99-6514B) also includes an interface module and two wiring harnesses to integrate your aftermarket head unit with your vehicle's factory audio system. The 18-pin connector of one harness and the 16-pin connector of the other harness plug into the included interface module. The 18-pin harness also features a 22-pin connector which plugs into your vehicle's factory radio harness. The un-terminated wire leads of both harnesses will need to be spliced or crimped onto your new aftermarket head unit's wiring harness (installation tools and accessories sold separately).

Retains Factory LCD: The 99-6514B Turbo Kit 2 retains the factory 4.3" LCD screen for custom vehicle settings. The kit also has two RCA composite video inputs that can be used to connect an aftermarket backup camera, and a video source. In the menu, the two video inputs can be designated as "Back-Up" or "Aux". Both inputs are controlled by data--if designated as "Back-Up", it will only work when the vehicle is put in Reverse; if designated as "Aux", the input will only work when the vehicle is in Park.
Navigation Outputs: The Metra Turbo Kit 2 (99-3303) also provides Mute, Parking Brake, VSS (vehicle speed sense), and Reverse outputs to make installing an aftermarket Navigation head unit simpler and less time consuming.
Retained Accessory Power (R.A.P.): The ignition power source of many Chrysler vehicles keeps the radio on until one of the doors is opened. This feature is called the R.A.P. (retained accessory power). The 99-6514B Turbo Kit 2 is designed to retain this feature.
OEM Steering Wheel Control Compatible (optional): The 99-6514B Turbo Kit 2 features a right-angle 3.5mm connector that lets you keep your vehicle's OEM steering wheel controls via the optional Axxess Steering Wheel Control Interface (sold separately).
