Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This wiring harness saves so much time. Everything is labeled and it fits in the OEM plugs. Also, pre-stripped. This is a must have.

Pros: Fits OEM plugs. Pre-stripped. Well labeled wires.

Cons: Would be nice if the wires were a bit longer to accommodate some more wiggle room. they sell extensions for that, but more $$$.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Plugs felt like OEM and snapped together positively. Wires used to convert are pre-labeled but are not marked + or - (marked as a pair, rf speaker, LR speaker, sub, etc). Wires seemed a bit small put of the package but are actually the same size as the wires in the car. Wires are pre stripped too, which was a nice touch. Pull the insulation off, stick it in your amp, tighten down. Done

Pros: Plugs fit well Plenty of pre-stripped wire Labeled clearly

Cons:
