Jon from Evansville, IN on 12/7/2016

2003 Dodge Dakota
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very soft flexible plastic and no support for the top left of the receiver. Installed in a 99 Cherokee and the top left corner pushes back into the dash every time you press a button on the receiver. I will probably go back into the dash and see if there is a way to reinforce that corner because I just don't like all that movement. at least this was a freebie with receiver purchase. I wouldn't want to pay for this kit.

Pros: price

Cons: stability

Crutchfield response on December 8, 2016 Once we saw this review, our Tech Support team reached out to Jon to help him further. We'll either help him get the kit working the way it should, or help him return it for an exchange or refund.

EBVL from Gloucester, VA on 9/20/2016

1998 Dodge Ram
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Was hesitant when found out that OEM radio was larger than standard replacements available. Customer Service assured me that the dash kit blank that surrounded the replacement would work fine. It did and fit into same screw hole patterns. Mine was matte black, which blended nicely with the gauges, A/C vents, and most other features on the dash. Unless you're looking for it, you don't even notice that the difference.

Pros: perfect fit and hides the larger space left by the OEM radio

Cons: None apparent

Everything lined up

Owen from Washington on 9/19/2016

This is pretty basic stuff but the holes all lined up perfectly and made mounting easy--no twisting or enlarging holes needed

Pros: perfectly hit the radio and lined up with the mounting holes--what more can you ask

Cons: none

Ben from Moorhead, MN on 5/12/2016

2001 Jeep Cherokee
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I've used this in both a Wrangler and a Cherokee. In both cases once everything is installed you can push the top left corner and the whole metra dash kit and head unit will flex and push back - there is nothing supporting it behind the top left corner. There are other options that appear to be better and I'm considering replacing both of these with something a bit more structured.

Pros: free with a head unit.

Cons: not structurally supported in the top left corner and allows movement and flexing.

Faceplate

Andrew from Kalaheo, HI on 4/7/2016

1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a plastic faceplate to mount an aftermarket head unit. It's not my first choice and I may scrap it in future if it doesn't hold well. At least I didn't pay that much for it.

Pros: Fits and mounts to stock dash, good price, ships fast.

Cons: Flimsy, cheap, no blackstrap mount, if you can use a pocket mount do that instead! I'm not super satisfied with this, I will have to modify so it holds up to dirt roads.

Great fit

Pros: Looks good Fits well Easy to install

Cons: Light weight design did not include back strap and receiver movement may lead to failure. I'm not sure if this will hold up to the rigors of off roading.

Chaz from Florida on 9/19/2015

1999 Dodge Durango
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Not an amazing product, it fit my dash fine, but my stereo doesn't fit perfect flush. It's a minor annoyance just because I'm a perfectionist. It is also a tad bit flimsy, it could be made of a stronger plastic or a metal but it serves its purpose good enough.

Pros: Fits, simple to install, cheap

Cons: Flimsy, stereo didnt fit perfectly flush

kog from Kansas on 6/29/2015

1998 Dodge Ram
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It does exactly what it is supposed to. My receiver fits securely into this and looks nice

Pros: A perfect fit. The color and finish are close enough to factory that it looks very nice. It came with phillips head screws so I can switch out the factory bolts that held the radio in place if I wanted to . . . and I did. Now I can use a single screwdriver to do the dash and radio removal if I want to make any changes in the future.

Cons: none. I have no negative issues to report at this time. The screw holes all matched up. The receiver fit perfectly into it. It felt like a good secure mount when the receiver was slid into place.

Greg from Arizona on 6/21/2015

2001 Jeep Wrangler
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It works for what I needed, but is flimsy so if you push the buttons with a solid push, the radio shifts in the dash. Part of it is the mounting system, not fully securing the radio into the bracket (needs a more solid method of holding it). It does work, and I'm not so unhappy that I would take it out and replace it.

Pros: Easy to use

Cons: Does not hold firmly

Does its job

JimL from Somerville, AL on 4/27/2015

1995 Dodge Ram 1500
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This filler component allowed us to install the standard radio into the factory space on our 95 Dodge Ram 1500. The piece looks like part of the original factory dash once installed. The plastic tabs align perfectly with the stock dash components to make installation very easy. Thanks! Jim

Pros: Black Color matches factory dash. Even if it didn't it could be painted to match any color. Plastic tabs fit stock dash sub-structure components, no screws or fasteners are required. No gaps between radio and filler, no unsightly cracks or voids

Cons: Can't think of any

Does Not Support Dodge Ram Van Receiver

Jamie from California on 4/6/2015

1996 Dodge Ram 2500
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The website says this is what my 96 Dodge Ram Van needed. It does not hold the single din receiver. I had to go to a stereo shop, and the guy knew exactly which Metra dash kit I needed. Very similar but has brackets that support the stereo in the large space. Wasted money and had to go find the correct one. Bit of a bummer.

Pros: Probably works fine for the correct vehicle.

Cons: Did not work for my vehicle even though the online vehicle tool said it did. Only posting a review incase someone has a 96 Dodge Ram that needs a dash kit. Call for help first.

Crutchfield response on April 14, 2015 We have confirmed this was the correct kit for the Dodge RAM Van. It's a custom kit that Metra builds specifically for Crutchfield, and we've used it in many vehicles for years. The other kit that you purchased is most likely Metra's standard kit for these vehicles. It's more generic, so it'll work in even more vehicles, and can sometimes cause confusion during the installation. But either kit will do the job. When using this kit, be sure that you bend the tabs securely on the stereo's DIN sleeve (the metal cage included with your new stereo) in order to form a rigid mount. That will ensure that the stereo is held firmly in place. Meanwhile, since this kit didn't work out for you, we have refunded the price of it to your credit card.

Multi Jeeper from California on 4/5/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It's handy, and works... but There are things that could be better about it. For one, it needs to be stronger. Seems to flex more than I'd like. Might need some fibers added to the plastic mix to tighten it up. Next, I would pay more for a kit that cam with multiple mounting options. What if I wanted the head unit at the top of the adapter... or the bottom... ? I am stuck with it being right in the middle. If it was higher or lower, then I could mount some switches in the available space... or mount a jack or several, for a rear aux input, or USB input. Just seems like this adapter could have been far more developed and better designed.

Pros: Quick and easy

Cons: Lack of options Not as strong as I'd like

This was the first time I ever purchased the installation kit with a stereo, and I will never go without it again. For just a few bucks, all of the hassle of rounding up the required connectors and making the stuff fit was gone. The finished product looks great too. Fits PERFECTLY. I do autobody repair for a living, tearing into a dash is a very normal thing for me. That said, I will still buy the install kit the next time I get a stereo. Its just too much of a value and headache saver not to.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This will work for the stated application, but having used hits similar to these in the past, I was aware that if the installation space is large and the receiver has any weight to it, the receiver can move around a bit and seem unanchored in the rear and while the front looks good, touching and using the unit can make it seem very unsteady, so I did some searching and found a different adapter for my unit also made by Metra that has support and works awesome. This would probably work with a vehicle with less internal dash space but with my mini van... would be a nightmare.

Pros: nice finish ... looks great... fills gaps

Cons: No support for rear of receiver which is a must have if used in a larger vehicle.
