You know talking about service from Crutchfield...this is it...I ordered a Kenwwod receiver for my 2008 F150 and this kit which came with the receiver made the perfect fit...you all are great...

Pros:

Cons:

Poor design

Brandon from Hyde Park, UT on 7/27/2017

2004 Ford F-150
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It causes the receiver to sit back in the dash not flush with it in my 2004 F150 making it look like a poor install. The cover with the metra kit around the faceplate sticks out too far that you can't remove faceplate without difficulty. Not happy with it and will be looking into other options to replace it with. It holds it in there secure so I will give it two stars.

Pros:

Cons: Does not fit cd player flush with dash as i believe it should.

Easy installation

KEVIN from Tallahassee, FL on 7/26/2017

2005 Ford F-150
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The kit is free so it's hard to not like it. It looks really good and blends well with the look of the dash. I had to use the existing screws because the ones that came with the kit didn't fit and the plastic mounting points cracked when I had to remove the unit to plug in the mic. The wiring harness made the install much easier because it plugged right in to the vehicle harness.

Pros: Looks good, wiring harness saves a lot of time.

Cons: Plastic mounting points cracked.

First thing, it worked and fit perfectly. The reason it gets only three stars is the installation booklet did not fit my application. The other problem was the attaching screws were completely wrong for the installation and I had to buy them separately.

bill from San Antonio, TX on 4/4/2017

2005 Ford F-150
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This kit installed super easy and was necessary to install a single DIN stereo in my 2005 F150. None of the adapters or spacers are needed for this application. However, this kit wasn't completely compatible with the Blaupunkt Austin 440 I purchased at the same time. The support arms for the motorized screen hit the top of the dash kit and would not completely open. The screen would stop facing down approximately 30 degrees. I had to Dremel 2 slots in the dash kit's upper face to make room for the screen's support arms to completely open. I realize these kits can't be 100% compatible with every stereo but I wasn't expecting to have to modify the dash kit. I rated 4 stars because it installed easily into the truck and looks very close to OEM and provided a handy storage pocket. Deducted 1 star because I had to modify the kit so I could actually get this particular stereo's motorized screen to completely deploy so I can actually view the screen.

Pros: ease of install, finish, design, 'grain' matches vehicle trim's 'grain', extra storage pocket

Cons: interfered with motorized screen arms for Blaupunkt Austin 440 & prevented complete opening

Fits perfect!

Pros: Complete kit with all hardware needed.

Cons: No mention of the needed mod to complete the install. Minor to do, just had to figure it out.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The spacers required for my vehicle make the unit difficult to install. I lost one spacer, which makes me angry to know there is a loose part wandering around inside my dash somewhere. The shape of the sides snags on something as it slides back. Without the spacers, there is a noticeable gap between the dash and the radio.

Pros: Required.

Cons: Bottom spacers don't fasten securely. Shape of sides snags.

Kit looks great in my F250XL. Directions are a little confusing as to which parts provided were the right ones for my truck. There was a little trial and error before I realized that I needed the little spacers and the longer screws provided in the kit. Not a big deal and the install came out great.

Pros: Everything provided so that the new head unit fit beautifully

Cons: Broad, all purpose instructions-be prepared to try it without and with spacers

Pros: Good fit, looks good. Nice to have a storage slot now.

Cons: Instructions were difficult to follow, very brief and with poor illustrations. It was hard to figure out which parts were needed for my truck. In the end the receiver seems to be set in a little too far, not flush. Probably some part I left off.

Derek G from Chester, Virginia on 2/5/2015

2006 Ford F-150
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Nice kit. Fairly easy to use and install once you decipher the included directions. Illustrations provided could be a little more detailed, but otherwise the written instructions tell it fairly well. I was going from a double DIN stock head unit to a single DIN aftermarket unit, and this kit fills the gap beneath the aftermarket unit with a pocket that gives me a bit of extra storage for my phone and stereo remote. If you have a high performance car, I would suggest putting in some kind of anti-slip into the pocket to keep stuff from sliding out. Also, since my head unit has a tilt down face to insert CDs, I have to use the trim ring that came with the unit. The Metra trim ring interfered with operation of the tilting faceplate. I would have loved to see the main chassis come in metal instead of plastic.

Pros: - Pocket gives place to store phone and remotes - Fairly rugged construction, but not unbreakable

Cons: - Instructions took a few minutes to figure out - Fairly rugged construction, but not unbreakable

Great mount for my new sony radio. The installation was simple and everything fit. The quality is good but not amazing. I had a little trouble getting the spacer brackets to fit in place properly but now that the dash kit is installed everything is tight and snug. The little storage area is a nice upgrade to my formally double thick radio.

Pros: Fits tightly in my Ford fusion. Simple installation and decent quality.

Cons: Directions were a little complicated but made sense after I reviewed them carefully. The spacer brackets didn't fit perfectly into the mounting slots but the end result is still a nice tight attachment to my cars dash.

Meh. Plastic. It works, though. Lots of parts I did not use, and instructions can be a bit murky. I guess that if your vehicle is not mentioned specifically in the instructions, the bag full of other parts are not required. This is what I found.

Pros: It worked, and radio head end seems to be firmly mounted. Hopefully, it will survive the Texas summer heat.

Cons: A bit generic, and the finish is a bit so-so on a DIN mount.

Does not fit 2008 Ford F150 well at all. Receiver sits to far into dash, making install look cheesy. Had to buy another install kit from another company.

Pros: none

Cons: Does not fit very well

It fits pretty well, but still leaves room at the bottom for you to see the metal case on the stereo. I had to alter it and use superglue for it to fit the best.

Pros: free

Cons: not that easy to use, not a perfect fit

Great Fit!

Worked perfect, very happy with how clean the installation looks. Plastic of this kit is slightly darker than the surrounding plastic of my truck. Also had a bit of a trial and error trying to mount the stereo in it properly, the instructions were not that clear.

Pros: Fits perfectly

Cons: Instructions need some help

RJH from Georgia on 12/13/2012

2005 Ford F-150
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It worked OK and looks good once installed including the added cubbyhole for CD's etc. The instructions could have been MUCH clearer, then I wouldn't have had to contact Crutchfield technical support. My radio (Pioneer DEH4400HD) came with the cage installed and the instructions did not mention having to remove the cage, then installing into the dash kit before sliding the radio into it. I don't install radios for a living and it has been at least 20 years since the last time I installed one. It would be nice to be a little more detailed with the instructions. The kit did arrive with one broken tab, but I SuperGlued it so no worries really.

Pros: Looks good, works good.

Cons: POOR instructions

Great Kit

2011 Ford F450 Super Duty

Stajdanley from Durham, NC on 7/1/2012

2011 Ford F-450
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Received this kit with my JVC KDX50BT radio in order to replace my Double DIN factory AM/FM radio. The included instructions are simple and very easy to follow and the kit fits perfectly into the truck. The only problem I had was with the JVC radio not fitting perfectly into the harness. It is sunken back about a 1/4 of an inch and I can just barely see inside the dash around the edges of the radio head. Not really a big deal, since it is in a work vehicle. If it had been for my personal vehicle, I probably would have rated it a bit lower. I am also not beyond saying that the radio not fitting properly could have been an error on my part. All in all, this is a solid, well-fitting kit that worked out great in my work truck (2011 Ford F-450 Super Duty).

Pros: Good quality, Fits in dash where Double DIN radio was perfectly, cubby hole under radio is very useful.

Cons: Radio would not install flush with kit.

Sorry looking thing

Danny R from Rockville, MD on 5/31/2012

2006 Ford F-150
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I can't believe Crutchfield would ship something of this low quality with the rest of their outstanding products. The piece "works" well enough, but it just makes the whole center stack look like someone didn't care enough to do the job right. This thing would've gone straight to the trash if I'd have known how it looked once installed. I'll be shopping around for better looking dash/receiver kit. It just sucks that I'm going to have to pull the dash apart again. I absolutely HATE not being able to do something right the first time.

Pros: Free. Worth every penny.

Cons: Ugly. Cheap. Flimsy.

Fits ok, but could be nicer.

fliersrr from Watertown, NY on 5/26/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Does fit the vehicle, but could be nicer looking and beter made.

Pros: Works.

Cons: Center partition between the radio and the shielf is justone thin piece of plastic that pows down and looks bad. The top and bottom are about 1/4" and work well. Center should have been 1/4" so it would not bow down.

This kit fits perfect in 2008 F-150 . Looks really good , not cheap looking . Used washers with the screws when installing , so no damage to the hinges . Also , this kit comes with the stereo trim ring . I left the Alpine trim ring on the Alpine stereo , & then installed the kit trim ring over it , and it fits perfectly . This covers any small openings that a few others have complained of .

Pros:

Cons: none

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I put this in my 2008 F150 and it looks good enough and fits fine. My only issue is that I like to make sure the screws in my cars are tight so I don't have to listen to rattling, but the plastic for the screw flanges is flimsy enough that they all cracked under the pressure of the screws and this thing will need to be replaced should I ever have to take the radio out again.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Good but not great - fits properly and does the job, but the look of the part just isn't quite OEM. The plastic isn't quite the same finish as the surrounding dash, and the gap between is a little uneven. It is better than anything I could have come up with myself.

Pros:

Cons:

Like OEM

I put this in my 2008 F150 XL. It works, but it's flimsy. The plastic will break easily. The screws sent with it were drill-tipped and long and would've damaged my receiver if I had attempted to use them. Thankfully, the right screws were sent with my receiver.

i guess it is a good buy...since it was free. easy to install but looks terrible. big gaps between stereo and mounting kit with no trim ring to hide the gaps. i would recommend getting one somewhere else.

LWASHI from Baltimore, Maryland on 1/30/2010

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have a 2007 Ford F150. The kit made it easey for me to install my unit. I did most of it on my kitchen table, went to my garage and switched the units in about 15 minutes. I'm satisfied. I like the extra tray that I use for holding my mp3 player, phone and the rest of my junk.

Pros:

Cons:

This one does not fit well.

Ray from Denver, NC on 10/28/2009

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This kit does not work well at all. I have been driving Ford E-250 service vans for a long time and it was a snap to put in a sound system when I got a new van or changed jobs. The older ones Crutchfield had sent along with the head units I purchased worked well. This one is more than to be desired. The unit can never be tight in this product and the plastic surround that completes the install will not fit properly and when you try to rotate the faceplate down to remove the CD disk, the volumne control hits it and you cannot remove the CD. I am very dissapointed in this aftermarket piece.

Pros:

Cons:

Does the job

Pat from SE TN on 7/17/2009

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Used on a 2008 F250 SD. Crutchfield did not have a Master sheet for this truck but the instructions provided in the kit did show a small diagram. Nothing hard or complicated. Looks okay in the dash. I like the pocket for CD's.

Pros:

Cons:

Not for 2005 F150

Johnie from Comanche, TX on 4/18/2009

2005 Ford F-150
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This kit doesn't work well with the dash of an F150. I tried mounting it several ways, but the receiver was countersunk and did not look good at all, much less have a factory fit. I will probably end up getting an install kit from the local stereo shop. Worst part is, I could have bought a $99 receiver and been just as happy, but I bought the more expensive one cause it was actually cheaper when you took into account the "free install kit." Bummer.

Needed dash kit to mount single DIN radio in my 2005 F150. The particular radio I chose, Blaupunkt Austin 440, is not 100% compatible with this kit.
