Good

Andrew from Tempe, AZ on 9/14/2019

2008 Ford Crown Victoria

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Installation was easy. Make sure to snap the black ISO ring off of the front before inserting your stereo. The whole unit doesn't quite "click" into my bezel; it is a tight friction fit and is removable with mild effort. But it's not falling out by itself.

It worked, but the instructions were a bit murky. Also required cutting off two large tabs and six tiny "nubs, " which was the most difficult part of the installation process. I would have preferred a mounting system more specific to my vehicle (a very common Ford Ranger).

Crutchfield customer from Las Vegas, NV on 6/13/2019

2008 Ford Crown Victoria

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Fitting this to my JVC head unit was not easy. It ended up being the hardest part of my stereo's installation, and kinda just "sits" in my dash, albeit snugly, even though I can probably push it in/pull it out with not a lot of effort. It's good enough, that's about it.

Pros: Looks good once you've got it all in the dash

Cons: Hard to install, will not fit all receivers even if they are single DIN

I got it to work. The directions were a little unclear. The bezel that came with the kit did not work with my faceplates open and closing operation. I ended up using one that came with the head unit. Which in fine. It's just a different finish and doesn't look as good.

It worked, but...

Crutchfield customer from Bertram, TX on 12/26/2018

2007 Ford Crown Victoria

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I had to supply my own screws into the back of the stereo to secure the bracket, as the pocket is way too short, only to find out that it didn't slide on the support so I couldn't use it. It didn't really fit right. I could get 3 of the corners in, but the last one was a pain, had to pry with a screwdriver against the vehicle trim. I'm not sure I can get it out easily either. The trim ring (the rectangular piece that covers the din) also was hard to get in and out, and I broke one of the little tabs on on of them. Maybe if the tabs were bigger it wouldn't have broken. You have to put the small tabs in first, then the big tabs as they are less likely to break. Overall it worked, but not perfect.

Pros: Worked out in the end Doesn't stand out

Cons: Small pocket Hard to fit Mounting bracket was useless

Crutchfield customer from Rockford, IL on 12/2/2018

2006 Ford Crown Victoria

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Excellent kit, good instructions for all applicable models. The kit has attachments and some extra tabs on it since it is made to fit quite a few models. You may have to make a slight mod for yours. I installed this in a Crown Vic, which was the easiest of all the models in the instructions to install. I didn't have to make any mods other than cut off (bend until it snaps off) two tabs that are meant for the Mustang install. I didn't have to use any of the additional attachments either.

Pros: Versatile, good instructions

Cons:

Crutchfield customer from State College, PA on 11/6/2018

2002 Lincoln Town Car

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Simple instructions. Good fit to car and radio. I used a Dremel to remove some tabs that needed to come off for my car. I didn't want to break the tabs by hand and perhaps crack the case. I also drilled an access hole in the back of the shelf, put a grommet in the hole, and brought the mike and rear USB connector through to be in the shelf pocket. Put black foam to squeeze the microphone and hold it protruding a bit from the front of the foam. I didn't want the wire draped to the visor or to try to hide the wire.

Pros: Perfect fit for car and radio.

Cons:

David from Traverse City, MI on 10/30/2018

2000 Lincoln Navigator

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This was for a head unit in a 2000 Lincoln Navigator. First, the instructions were not correct. They instructed me to screw a sort of bracket (included with dash kit) onto my head unit, indicating that it would fit into a slot on the dash of my vehicle and help to support the head unit. There is no such slot. In fact, the head unit will not fit in the dash with the bracket screwed to it. It is an EXTREMELY tight fit when you have the aftermarket wiring harness needed for this vehicle. Second, do you see the two tabs on the dash kit in the picture? With the two screw holes in each? You have to cut these off or the dash kit will NOT fit into the dash. This is not stated in the instructions. Third, when you remove the trim ring that covers and secures the head unit when it is installed, it has a couple of very tiny tabs on it that hold it in place. Emphasis on tiny. Anyhow, this ludicrously tiny tabs break off very easily . Both of mine did. So, after if you don't mind ignoring the instructions and doing a little modding, this kit works fine. Otherwise, it is a poor design (for this vehicle) with poor instructions . I will say, however, that it looks nice once installed.

Pros: Inexpensive Looks nice once installed Easy to modify if the instructions are next to useless for you

Cons: Poor instructions Poor design for a 2000 Lincoln Navigator Plastic tabs on trim ring break easily

This is a kit with a lot of applications that must be different. My only real issue was having to cut off parts of the mounting box for my application. But I understand the need for it to serve multiple vehicles. It did seem to provide a nice looking install. Time will tell whether it rattles or has any issues. I have not had any so far and the install was relatively straight forward if you follow the correct instructions for your specific auto.

Can't believe how easy this was to install. Detailed instructions, fits like it was meant to and does exactly what it's supposed to. Not sure if it gets any better than that. Get online, tell them what I have (vehicle, stock audio receiver, etc.), tell them what I'm getting (new audio receiver), they work their magic and I get a package of exactly what I need to get the best install and sound from my new unit. Thank you Crutchfield.

Very clean kit. Since my factory was a double din but my new JVC KD-X350BTS is a single I've got an extra spot to store stuff, specifically my work phone. I really liked that for my model explorer the extra storage unit is above the radio instead of below, but this installation varies per vehicle.

Pros: Clean look

I was afraid to break off the sections that the instructions promised me were okay to break off for a proper fit. Customer service talked me off the ledge, and everything went exceptionally well

Pros: Fit perfectly once I figured out the parts that I could snap off for a custom fit would snap off with no additional damage to the piece. Customer service was amazing.

Cons: People with large hands should get friends with smaller hands to install their radios . . .

Contained all the parts I needed and decent instructions, and looked great with the unit installed. More details on using the rear support would have been helpful - took a few tries to get it right. Also, needed to be installed complete with unit, so if anything used to permanently install, the unit can't be removed from its DIN housing without breaking that rear support, or pulling the 'doghouse' (2004 Ford E-450).

Fits my van just fine. In the ten years I've had this van, this is the third in dash unit install. First two installs came with the same kit, which was broken by the head unit banging around in the same shipment box. This time, I don't know how, all the plastic bits came thru unscathed. Crutchfield could change the way they pack heavy items with light and fragile plastic items, like this kit.

Pros: Fits!

Snug fit, looks good, missing one option

Ram from Westland, MI on 11/21/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Works well with my 2007 Ford Escape. After all wiring connections were made, it was a bit hard to push/install the receiver and assembly in the opening. The first time I noticed the metal flaps were hitting the OEM opening top because I had not folded them over enough (receiver mounted on top). The second attempt just took some patience, muscle, and fineness. It looks like it's in there for life now (and has a very snug fit). The only bad part is that my receiver didn't have a hole at the back to mount the rear support bracket and there's no workaround this item.

Pros: Looks good. Snug fit. Looks like OEM fit.

Cons: Missing option to install rear support bracket with receivers that don't have a hole at the rear.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Dash kit did not install correctly in my 2009 Ford Ranger truck. "gripper" tabs on side of mount would not grab the sides of the opening, where the old radio was removed. I had to fabricate a small aluminum right angle bracket, JB-Weld it to the dashboard brace, drill a small hole through the pocket center boss and the aluminum bracket, use a small sheet-metal screw to hold the adapter in the dash opening. As an extra assurance I used small dots of RTV down the side and across the top and bottom of adapter to further secure the adapter in the dash. Radio DIN sleeve fit OK after I removed the bezel ring which is part of adapter, and reused the JVC radio bezel ring. Overall the installation looks good, and no one could tell it was NOT plug-and-play.

This product ended up installing in the space to hold the radio, but, not securely. I had a difficult time getting the side-ears to snap into place. So much so, that I scrapped them. As a result, the radio and Dash Kit likes to leap out of my dash at a predictable bumpy spot on the road. I'll need part of an additional saturday to try to add the ears back in for better security. Looks-wise, it is a great product.

Pros: Looks Great

Fit the Boss BV860B perfectly once I figured out to remove a piece from around the opening for the radio itself. That piece should not have been sent assembled as this kit covers several vehicles, mine being a 1999 Ranger did not need the piece. Otherwise this Dash Kit worked.

Worked great. I decided to use the head unit's mounting sleeve rather than the kits mounting hardware. The had tolerances that did not allow for the proper bending of tabs to get a secure fit. Had to get a little creative in order to achieve this.

looks great but took a little file work to get it to snap in the factory opening flush.one of the little locking tabs was hitting the back plate and would not sit flush. one minute with a small round file was all it took to make clearance and now fits and looks great..

Pros: looks great

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.

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

Crutchfield customer from Lakeland, FL on 5/8/2017

Verified employee purchase (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.

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

Unbelievably cheap and dysfunctional

Crutchfield customer from Boston, MA on 12/14/2016

2006 Ford Ranger

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (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

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!

This item came as part of the installation kit that was recommended and provided at a deep discount. This item was great!

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.

Perfect fit, super easy installation and brief yet easy to understand directions. Better than what I remember as these are seemingly less flimsy and more rugged than those I used 5-7 years ago.

Super nice kit that will adapt to almost any application. Looks great in my truck.

Pros: Fits multiple applications. Quality made and easy to figure out.

This unit was incredibly easy to use and install. Required me to remove a couple of plastic tabs in order to be used in my vehicle - 1999 F-150 - but it snapped right into place and gave the installation a nice, professional look.

Pros: Good quality, easy-to-follow instructions, fit like a glove

Cons: Had to remove a couple of plastic tabs - easy, but took a few minutes

Easy to install, nice fit, good instructions. I would give it 5 stars, but it seems just a little bit flimsy. Not really in a bad way, but I feel like it could have had a touch more heft/structure to it. Still, overall I'm very satisfied.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

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. A quick call to crutchfield and they got me back on track. The front opening has a removable bezel that pops of, it fits so well when installed it's hard to see the seam.

Pros: Fits and looks good installed

Cons: Could use better pictures in directions

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

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

Overall, the kit worked as expected. It seems to be of high quality. The instructions could be a little clearer. They referred to installing a bracket that would not fit the radio. After calling technical service, I learned that the bracket was no longer needed.

Not too happy, had to do lots of trimming

Drew from Owatonna, MN on 9/6/2016

2002 Ford F-150

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (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

Christopher from Hollywood, FL on 8/22/2016

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.

Fit perfectly and worked perfectly, but the instructions left a lot to be desired. It's not rocket science but still would be nice for things to be a bit more clear, especially with all of the "extra parts" that may or may not be necessary for your vehicle.

Pros: Good fit

Cons: Confusing instructions
