About the Metra 99-6537B Dash and Wiring Kit
Your Dodge Durango is a great truck, but the design of the dashboard makes it impossible to upgrade the factory radio. Metra's 99-6537B dash and wiring kit replaces the stock dash panel and allows you to install a new single-DIN (2" tall) or double-DIN (4" tall) receiver in the dash. Its full-color touchscreen lets you control the vehicle's heating, ventilation, and air conditioning functions. The kit includes the HVAC interface and wiring harness you'll need to connect the new radio.
Keep your steering wheel audio controls
The included interface allows you to retain your steering wheel audio controls with a compatible car stereo, as well as keep the vehicle's safety chimes, factory backup camera, and Aux In jack. The harness provides the outputs you'll need to install a GPS receiver. The black finish matches the color of the factory dash.

Metra 99-6537B Dash and Wiring Kit reviews
Works as described but did not allow my 2014 Durango to adjust sound fade from front to rear of the car. Seems like an easy software fix but Crutchfield was unable to fix it after a valiant effort. It is a Metra product issue, apparently.
Pros: Most features work as described.
Cons: Does not allow radio to control speakers adequately.

More details on the Metra 99-6537B Dash and Wiring Kit
Vehicle Compatibility: The Metra 99-6537B installation package is designed to replace the factory radio in your 2014-up Dodge Durango with an aftermarket head unit, while retaining important factory features - including the factory amplifier, steering wheel controls (additional adapter required), RAP (Retained Accessory Power), safety & warning chimes, plus the factory backup camera and Aux input.
Amplified or Non-Amplified Compatible: The Metra 99-6537B works in 2014-up Dodge Durango vehicles with or without a factory amplifier. Fade & balance controls are retained for non-amplified vehicles only.
Single or Double-DIN Dash Kit: The included dash kit is designed for the installation of a single-din or double-din aftermarket head unit in your 2014-up Dodge Durango. A pocket is included for single-din radio installation. The kit is painted a scratch resistant matte black finish with a silver trim to match factory color, style, and finish.
4.3" Touchscreen w/ Climate Control: The dash kit features an integrated 4.3" touchscreen, along with eight soft-touch buttons for adjustment of climate controls and configuration of vehicle settings.
Built-In Steering Wheel Control Interface: The Metra 99-6537B features a built-in steering wheel control interface which allows you to retain your vehicle's factory steering wheel controls, when used with an aftermarket head unit that features a steering wheel control input.
Factory Backup Camera Retention: The Metra 99-6537B lets you retain your vehicle's factory backup camera. If your aftermarket head unit has a composite video backup camera input, the backup image will display on the aftermarket receiver's built-in monitor. If your receiver does not have a backup camera input, you can configure the 99-6537B to display the backup image on the dash kit's integrated 4.3" touchscreen monitor.
Note: There is a composite video jack labeled "Aux Video" which will not get used.
Retains Factory Aux: The Metra 99-6537B also allows you to retain your vehicle's factory 3.5mm Aux input. Your aftermarket head unit must be equipped with a rear-panel Aux input. A stereo-to-minijack adapter maybe required (sold separately).
Note: There is a multi-pin DIN jack which will not be used.
12V/10A Accessory Output: In this vehicle, there is no 12-volt accessory wire in the factory harness, which requires the installer to run an accessory wire to the fuse box or underneath the steering column when installing an aftermarket radio. The 99-6537B is designed to provide a 12-volt/10-amp switched accessory output (red wire), along with an illumination wire (orange/white wire).
Retained Accessory Power (R.A.P.): The Retained Accessory Power (R.A.P.) function supplies power to the radio after the ignition is shut off until one of the front doors are opened; this function is retained by the Metra 99-6537B. Important safety & warning chimes are also retained.
Navigation Outputs: The Metra 99-6537B provides essential wires required for aftermarket radios that have navigation - VSS (Vehicle Speed Sense), Reverse, and Parking Brake wires are provided. This helps to cut down the installation time, since the installer does not have to look for these wires in the vehicle.
Color Codes: Wiring up the Metra 99-6537B is like wiring up any other wire harness that would attach to an aftermarket radio's harness. The Metra/EIA wire codes can be found in the Installation Instructions that will aid you in the wiring of your aftermarket radio The 99-6537B interface contains the following wire leads.
