Dash kit for Ford F-250

2004 Ford F-250 Super Duty
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This dash kit is really nice. Easy to install. Color is like one pigment off from matching but I don't care. Very sleek and looks great in the dash. I'm impressed with the fit and style. The only problem I found is I'm not to sure how you can pull the dash kit out if say you had to replace the fuse in the head unit. Over all I'm very happy with this dash kit. Thanks...

Pros: Looks great, fit perfectly, easy to install.

Cons: Not to sure how to go about pulling the kit out (without breaking it) if I needed to do something with my head unit.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It works but is a little flimsy. My Ford holds the unit with two screws at the base of the unit. That is fine for the OEM unit that has a metal case but this plastic kit is a little pliable. Everything is secure except when I disconnect the USB cable from the head unit, in which case the head unit pulls forward a bit before the cable is disconnected. It should be reinforced with metal angle brackets at the bottom to keep it secure.

Pros: looks nice

Cons: flimsy

Anonymous from Lakeland, FL on 5/8/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Works well. Instructions could be a little more detailed especially for the back/center support bracket. The bracket was too long and would not clear the back of the radio unit. The instructions did not explain how to customize or adjust the fit. Noticed on a Youtube video the bracket was cut to make it fit. Not sure if that was the correct solution, but it solved the problem. Question the functionality of the pocket. Too small and shallow to be good for storage.

Pros: Simple straight forward design.

Cons: Could provide more info. on how to make adjustments to ensure proper fit.

Worked great for 2005 Ford Escape Limited.

The American International FMK-550 Dash Kit was very easy to install in my 2005 Ford Escape Limited. It holds the head unit securely in place. I used a fine flat file like the instructions recommend to smooth out the factory head units cavity in the dash.

Pros: Good price, Easy to install

Cons:

For free it was great, however it is made of really flimsy plastic, I got it to work but it broke in a few places and really needed a lot of work to make it hold the radio in my ranger

Pros: Free

Cons: Didn't really fit my ranger or the radio I should say

2002 F-150 Std Cab Perfect fit! I removed the not needed faceplate, broke off the mounting tabs mounted it with the try on the lower side, slid in the Radio sleeve, bent up the tabs and snapped it in. Put the factory cover back in place and it is an amazing perfect fit Highly recommended for the 2002 F-150 Std Cab

Pros: Did exactly what it was supposed to in minutes. did not need any of the "extra" parts or screws

Cons: None at all

michael from Los Angeles, CA on 2/23/2017

1999 Ford F-150
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Trim was fine... My issue was the rear support. Now way to install with the support on the trim housing, no way to install the support after the trim is in... Maybe I missed something, neither the install instructions from Crutchfield or the manuf. addressed the issue at all. My concern will be longevity, will the trim hold over time without the rear support considering the vibrations from a pick up truck?

Pros: Easy install, looks great

Cons: No way to install rear support

Very clean and simple

This fit perfectly in my 2004 Ford Ranger. I had to clip the 2 pieces on the top, because I didn't need them. They broke of fairly cleanly, so there wasn't much filing down I needed to do to make it slide into the opening.

I used this to install in a 2011 Ford Ranger. It does allow you to install an aftermarket radio. It doesn't make it easy. At least in my case.

Pros: Looks good in the dash.

Cons: No walk in the park as far as installation goes. In a Ranger at least.

Unbelievably cheap and dysfunctional

Anonymous from Boston, MA on 12/14/2016

2006 Ford Ranger
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I'm really surprised this dash kit has such good reviews. I found this kit to be a complete piece of junk and here's why: 1. its cheaply made-for my Ranger I had to break off the screw tabs (as directed) and the plastic broke off in jagged pieces making it not only difficult to install but made the kit look ugly. In addition, the anchor tabs, once they are clicked in, forget ever taking your stereo out again. On first attempt at installing I realized the dash kit was a bit crooked so I tried pushing the pins inward to remove the system. The pins snapped right off immediately. 2. the pocket space is horrendous-the Ranger has plenty of room for a full length and width pocked and yet this kits' pocket can barely fit an iPhone 6 sideways! 3. It's poorly designed: there is a rear support bracket, but guess what? you can't even use it! The rear support bracket (shaped like a triangle) screws into the back of the pocket and is supposed to slide into the groove in your cars dash to support and stabilize the system. However since the pocked on this model is so short, once you put the stereo in, the stereo hits the bracket! I thought maybe the support bracket would attach to the stereo itself but there was no screw hole. Oh, and on top of that the screw hole in the back of the pocket isn't even threaded. I love Crutchfield and have been using them for years, but their dash kits are really horrendous. No wonder they are free when you buy a stereo.

Pros: Free

Cons: Just about everything

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This integrates well with my Alpine stereo install in my 2006 Ford Crown Vic Police Interceptor. I was concerned how a single DIN radio would look in a double DIN opening. It looks great! It was easy to use, instructions are clear and concise. They give you parts for nearly every imaginable possibility. In my case I didn't need most of them and had to cut the tabs off.

Pros: Price was right, looks classy when installed. Pocket functional.

Cons: None

Great fit and look

This item came as part of the installation kit that was recommended and provided at a deep discount. This item was great! While it is designed to fit many vehicles it worked like it was only designed to fit my 2002 Ford Escape! I quick removal of the Mustang mounting tabs and BOOM! It snapped right into place. Filled the over-sized factory hole perfectly. I simply slid the DIN adapter from my new head unit in bent the tabs over and it looks and functions great.

Pros: multiple vehicle fit, easy instructions, snapped right in, bonus storage

Cons: could use more space to bend DIN tabs

Installed a new head unit in a 03 Ford Explorer with this kit. At first I thought they shipped the wrong kit because neither the radio or radio tray fit through the opening in the front.

This item fit on my 2003 Windstar and although there we're instructions specifically for my vehicle, it wasn't as clear as it could have been. I had to figure out how the radio slid in because of the various fits to other vehicles with the same kit. Some tabs have to be removed and/or adapter has to be removed. Eventually you will get it. I've installed a few car steroes here and there but I'm no master.

Pros: Looks nice and clean.

Cons: Some figuring has to be done based on lackluster directions

Not too happy, had to do lots of trimming

Drew from Owatonna, MN on 9/6/2016

2002 Ford F-150
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This was a challenge. Not all the pieces fit right, had to do lots of trimming to parts I would expect to work without doing that. Felt like it was going to break with the force I had to use to get everything to fit. And after I got the radio installed in my truck, this dash kit doesn't fit directly into the existing radio housing perfectly, so my radio trim bezel for my truck didn't fit on my dash correctly. I had to take a dremmel to my dash piece so it would go back to where it was supposed to. With all that said, it isn't a bad dash kit, but I hope there are better ones. No one would be able to tell I had issues just by looking at it. so it gets a 3.

Pros: radio fits

Cons: directions were vague lots of trimming to fit cheap tabs broke upon normal installation

I used the side bracket mounts. The unit holds the receiver securely and fits the dash well. Only problem was that it was difficult to snap the side brackets into place without breaking a small retaining tab.

Pros: secure mounting and good fit

Cons: assembly of mounting bracket could be easier

Perfect for the 2nd time

This dash insert fit nicely, a bit of bending to actually snap it in place. But it fit and even allowed me to reuse the same grounding point. Easy to assemble a bit of trimming needed because snap positons were not fully cleared.

Pros: Easy to use, inexpensive for the amount of beauty, quick shipping, and easy full instructions that exact'y fit the dash inserts, rugged design.

Cons: Needed a bit of forcing but eventually snapped into place perfectly, glad it was built well if not might of snapped the housing pushing it together, some of the snap points weren't fully cleared nothing a razorblade cou'dnt clean up.

Nice kit. Had way too many parts and no info regarding the Ford Sport Trac. Luckily, with all the extra parts, I was able to fashion a mount that worked fine for the Sport Trac.

Pros: Obviously useful for a variety of vehicles, even those not covered in the instructions.

Cons: My specific vehicle wasn't included, so I had to improvise. Some of the plastic parts are a bit tough to mate together without fear of breaking something.

Michael B from St. John, Virgin Islands on 7/8/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very confusing instructions. Finally figured out that I only really needed the outer sleeve, that accepted the installation sleeve, not the various side pieces, rear support, etc. Took hours trying to figure all this out, and if you can put the side pieces in place by following the instructions, you get the prize. Once I found that I only needed the mounting sleeve, all I had to do was figure out that I needed to pry the trim ring off the Pioneer stereo, install it in the sleeve, and replace the trim ring. There was a trim ring included, a replacement, but it did not fit my application. Fortunately the old one fit. The whole experience was like that. Things did wind up fitting, working, doing the job, but he instructions need a lot of work.

Pros: Did the job.

Cons: Took a lot of head scratching to get there.

Pioneer Media Player install for Mazda B3000

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Real easy installation process using this kit. The Pioneer media player was very lightweight and fit perfectly into the frame kit. No hassles.

Pros: Easy of application. Easy to understand manual. Fits securely in dash and holds unit tightly..

Cons: With the Mazda you need to cut off the two top mounting tabs ( not needed for this application). Be careful when doing so to not scratch the outer edge of the remaining frame piece. A dremel works very well for cutting the tabs.

Crutchfield needs to drop this vendor. Cheap junk.

Ron B. from Memphis, TN on 6/22/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This will never make it to the web page, but I am so disappointed in Crutchfield in their choice of "dash installation kit" supplier. The stuff is junk, badly explained and leaves me with a queasy feeling as to how secure my unit is in dash. I purchased a Kenwood CD player (which I am totally satisfied with) but the "free" custom installation kit was worth what I paid for. Follow the instructions (right) could not get the unit to slide into the kit pocket; finally called Crutchfield tech support (great service) and was prepared for a long discussion but after about 30 seconds of explaining my problem , the tech guy laughed "yeah they have a lot of calls on this, you need to pop the face plate off". Well it was not mentioned in the instructions and looking at it, it did not seen that it pops off. But it did. I finally got the unit inside and the only security it has is the din sleeve of the Kenwood. Here's my point charge me for a well made installation kit. The wiring harness and Posi connectors were great, but this cheap floppy dash kit ruined the whole purchase satisfaction for me.

Pros: Free

Cons: Cheaply made, incomplete installation instructions and sloppy fit.

Even after making a call to customer service I was not impressed with this dash kit it is perfect for a full-size stereo single Din but not good for a media player as there is no way to hook up the back support bracket customer service said you don't need the bracket but without it the stereo shakes up-and-down and vibrates while driving down the road also the surround ring was pretty attached when I got my kit and I had to snap it off in order to install the sleeve which damage the tabs on it and I had to glue it before I installed it please note this is The first time I have used a dash kit that wasn't perfect:(

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The single din is pretty easy to use but it does take some time to figure it out. The instructions are pretty vague and do not really explain what you are doing. It is just a few photos that you have to figure out. It did not take too long but, for first time users, the intructions could be a little better. I had to call Crutchfield once for a part on the back that I found out I did not need. The instructions said nothing about how to mount it or if I even needed that part. Crutchfield told me I did not need the small triangle piece

Pros: Works great

Cons: Instructions are about as useful as a bag of rocks.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This kit works correctly and fits like a dream however; the reason for the four star and not five is because the instructions are not accurate for the model of car. The instructions said I should leave the tabs on and might have to use spacers. This was incorrect. I needed to remove the tabs or it wouldn't fit at all. Not a big issue but it did leave me stumped for about 10 minuets.

Pros: Fits like it should. Quick to install once you know what you're doing.

Cons: Instructions are not accurate.

Cons: The radio can slide out of the dashboard without unscrewing anything. Also the pocket is barely tall enough for a phone. Make sure the audio out cable is plugged in securely because you'll be yanking on it to retrieve your phone.

This is a great kit that has almost everything you need with exception of experience using it. Part of the instructions are incomplete for some installations and the back support does not work well because it interferes with the stereo. The easy fix for the back support is using the existing one from the radio you are replacing if that is what you're doing.

Pros: Parts to allow almost any installation configuration

Cons: Inadequate instructions. Fitting parts and some installation details are missing.

As always, these dash install kits are great! I've installed one on my dad's F250, one just recently on my F350 and will be installing one soon in my wife's F250. VERY easy to install comes with instructions if needed for your first time installing the kit. On a difficulty scale of 1-10 it's a 0.01. I will only buy from Crutchfield, have been a long time customer and still coming back.

Pros: VERY quick and easy to install, comes with all parts necessary to install.

Cons: None!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Fits like a glove and looks like an OEM install.

Pros: Easy fit

Cons: Had to use the trim bracket that came with the radio instead of the one thst came with the dash kit as it was very difficult to remove the trim piece and I could not snap it back in once the radio was in place.

Perfect

2004 Ford Excursion
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I installed this in a 2004 Ford Excursion. The dashboard trim piece is held in place by 2 screws above the factory radio and a bunch of spring clips. This is held in by 6 spring clips That Can Only Be Released From The Back. So if you install this with the 2 screws in place, there is no way to remove either the trim panel or the radio without breaking something. After install, I realized the best install is probably to put the storage area above the aftermarket radio and drill access holes for the dash screws, which can then be accessed with an offset screwdriver.

Pros: Fits well.

Cons: Instructions/warnings/options incomplete.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This unit worked in my 2008 Ford Ranger perfectly. I've read other reviews that claim it "didn't fit" their Ranger, and that it was "wobbly" after installation. It says on the FIRST PAGE of the instructions for this that you have to file down a couple plastic fit nubs that are required for other model cars in order to use this unit in a Ford Ranger. It took about 1 minute to file them off and it installed with no wobble. READ THE DIRECTIONS, PEOPLE!

Pros:

Cons:

Easy and complete

Not a good match for a Pioneer head in a Ford Escape

Motoguy from Blaine, WA on 9/16/2015

2007 Ford Escape
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I've installed 6 Pioneer receivers in various of our family's cars, all bought from Crutchfield and all installed using the supplied installation kits. This is the first one I've had a problem with . The (heavy) Ford factory CD unit is supported at its lower edge by a nylon "slider" that rides on a "track" in the dash. This mounting kit includes a piece that should provide this function BUT it cannot be fitted to Pioneer head unit I bought (there is no place on the Pioneer to attach it). It took me a few hours of "chair and stare" to figure out how to re-purpose the factory support for use with the new Pioneer unit. Very unlike Crutchfield-supplied install kits to leave me in a bind like this. It all works fine now but the delay and fiddly work involved was annoying.

Pros: Very complete kit. Thorough, well-written instructions

Cons: Critical rear support as supplied could not be used with the Pioneer head unit I bought.

Install Kit pretty good

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

how crazy excited can you get about an install kit. It worked pretty good, we had a few problems getting it in right but eventually figured it out. not the best directions.

Pros: it fit

Cons: it took several tries to get it in correctly, and we had to "rig" it behind the dash

Well, it worked

Vash744 from Ohio on 9/8/2015

2000 Ford Ranger
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The instructions are missing a few of the finer details. You can figure it out by trial and error however. Installation was for an early 2000 Ford Ranger.

Pros: Pretty cheap considering most kits go for $15+. Matched my radio and dash pretty well.

Cons: Some of the plastic tabs that is supposed to hold the radio in the dash broke off before I could get it into the dash, making it useless for actually keeping the radio in the dash. Cheap plastic or maybe due to being made to fit multiple vehicles, who knows. Had to use the mounting sleeve on the radio to keep the radio in the dash.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

After getting the wires all set up, My friend and I sat there for 30 more minutes trying to make the pieces fit, but in the end we simply used half of what was there. Literally half of the mounting side pieces.

Pros: It worked out well in the end. Tight fit.

Cons: Too universal.
