Not Exact Fit

Manuel from Woodland, CA on 7/25/2019

2003 Toyota Matrix

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

This is not meant to fit for your car what so ever. It's meant to fit multiple cars. If your looking to get something for you car pay for the exact fit. This product is a waste of time and money. Your welcome.

Pros: It's cheap.

Cons: 50/50 chance of correctly fitting. You have to brake the plastic in order for it to fit in your car. Or brake it to the point it can't be used.

Simon from Montreal, QC on 10/6/2018

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

Instructions are confusing but the product ultimately does the job. I installed this in a 2006 Pontiac vibe. You basically need to cut all anchor points that are not needed. Just keep the 4 tabs that match your original radio mounting points and reuse the factory screws. You can cut off the extra plastic with cutting pliers. Also, I had to remove the face-bezel form the radio to just use the faceplate of this kit. Also , I used the radio-screws that came with the radio.

Pros: You get support with crutchfield so it negate the fact that the instructions are useless.

Cons: Manual is useless.

The adapter is sturdy, but would be better if the height was adjustable on the sides. The radio sits slightly crooked in the dash and can't be leveled out.

Pros: Sturdy, easy to use

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

Instructions were insufficient. Product is somewhat complex. I know there really isn't much in the way of an alternative, but dealing with the assembly and fit of this particular part was by far the most difficult part of installing my new stereo system. Shoutout to Crutchfield's outstanding customer service for helping me figure out what I needed to do when assembling (particularly what parts to snap off and what not to snap off). Once I had removed the pieces the fit of the factory faceplate remained imperfect and I had to modify it in order to create a good fit. Just make sure to assemble it after you have taken the old head unit out and don't hesitate to call someone to verify you are doing it right.

This is essential if you want a good, clean looking install. With that said the istructions were a bit confusing with the multitude of modifications you have to make to the kit to get it to fir right. Messing with this kit took a long time. It all comes down to having the right tools on hand. Word to the wise, buy or have some end cutting pliers. These made quick work of the tabs and brackets that needed to be removed from this kit.

Pros: -looks very complete and gives a good finished look with your radio unit installed

Cons: -The instructions for this kit can be kind of confusing. There are a ton of tabs you have to remove to get it to fit right

This was a must have for the installation for my 2003 Vibe. if you don't have this, the installation will look terrible. This dash kit was easy to assemble and lined up perfectly with the factory screws. Don't forget to snip off the excess tabs so that the dash will go back into place correctly.

Worked well-once I figured it out-but be careful which tabs you cut off. Drawings and instructions are not that great. Some tabs were shown to remain but had to be cut off anyway in order for factory bezel to be reinstalled. (toyota matrix).

Pros: Worked fine once the proper tabs were cut off.

Cons: Better photos in the instructions would be better

Robert from Gainesville, FL on 10/29/2017

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

My 8 year old JVC KD-HDR60 (single DIN) car stereo receiver crapped out recently. While replacing the receiver with a larger JVC KW-R920BTS (double DIN), I needed to use a new dash mounting kit (GMK-422). The install took 1 day and was relatively easy. The GMK-422 hard plastic mounting brackets fit several cars, requiring some of the mounting tabs to be removed prior to use in a specific car. I was a little hesitant to break off the unneeded mounting tabs, but several would obstruct access to the necessary mounting tabs. But the process of customizing these mounting brackets wasn't that difficult, and it works perfectly in mounting my car stereo receiver to my car's center dash. As I have been for the past 17 years or so, my most recent car audio purchase from Crutchfield was a very satisfying experience. Thanks again!

Some Alteration required

Grant from Indiana on 3/20/2017

2006 Pontiac Vibe

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

Overall, I am satisfied with this kit, however there are a few drawbacks that you should be aware of. The first thing that was less than satisfactory was the instructions. They were not designed well at all. For example, the instructions will either say: "All vehicles except_____" or "Only or blank vehicles_____". The issue is they flip flop between these two categorical qualifiers and don't stick to one or the other. They should also bold and underline the ALL and ONLY. It is very important that you get the instructions right, because if you don't, you could destroy the kit. Which brings me to my next point. This kit requires physical alteration. It's not really custom made. You will need a DREMEL. The kit requires you to remove some tabs and connectors, except, they don't snap off or disconnect. OH NO. You must physically grind them off. Also even if you do grind off the ones indicated by the instructions, your mileage may vary. I couldn't fit my dash trim over the kit so I had to grind off a few more unused Tabs. It may sound like I was unsatisfied with the kit, but I am actually very happy with the end result. The kit holds my FH-720BT pioneer double Din perfectly, and looks professional from the outside. Although its plastic, I feel like the mounting hardware is enough to hold my Stereo which is lighter weight than the factory one. I recommend this kit, just don't expect to slap the pieces together and have your radio mounted in 2 minutes.

Pros: Finished product looks excellent Lightweight

Cons: Unclear instructions Needs dremel or other tool to remove unused parts of kit Plastic

Difficult to Work With but Looks Great in the Dash

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

Once we got it installed, it worked well. But the instructions were terrible. It was very unclear which tabs were supposed to be cut off and which needed to stay until I put it in my dash and saw which tabs were blocking. I also broke the faceplate trying to get the tabs off and had to glue it back together. I would highly recommend using a Dremel to cut off the tabs after trying several different methods.

Too many tabs to break off for my car. And they didn't break off easy. I accidentally broke the trim ring when I found a tab I had missed. It does not for back together well at all. Luckily, the break is at the bottom, so it isn't too noticeable.

KD from Kansas City, MO on 2/16/2016

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This product secures my head unit and completely fills the opening from my stock stereo. Once I figured out which tabs to remove, it was a very simple install. I had never used a spacer like this before, and initially the instructions were very confusing. It would have been simpler to instruct me to remove the stock stereo and leave behind the tabs that correspond to those on the stock stereo. The tabs were easy to remove with a wire side cutter.

Pros: Looks good, easy install

Cons: Slightly confusing instructions for a first-timer

installed in my 2006 Pontiac Vibe base model. I installed an aftermarket Android radio head unit. I did have to trim the bezel on the front to fit it only because of the size of the head unit which I think was abnormally sized. my only issue was the instructions. trimming off the extra pieces was not clear enough for my model it did list it but didn't show which pieces to trim.

Pros: Good fit Looks factory

you'll have to carfully trim the tabs that are not needed on this plastic adapter. Do a little trial and error with this and the radio and things will fit. Be careful with trimming so you dont cut too much or break the wrong section. USe a Dremel with a cutting blade and then sand the nub smooth.

Pros: Works fine

Cons: instructions are not good but its easy to figure out how to get it to work.

Looks clean after install. There are tabs that you need to remove to fit your individual vehicle. Manual is not accurate. Use common sense. The side panels do not fit in very well so you may have to force them to snap in place. Be careful when you do this since this is just a piece of plastic.

Pros: Looks good and is simple to install

Cons: pieces don't fit easily. Be careful when assembling the side panels.

Excellent fit to radio and vehicle,Dash panel fits tight to radio with no gap,Very happy with fit and finish.

Pros: Fits radio very well with supplied hardware and fit vehicle VERY well,Easy assembly.

Cons: Not really a con but it's made to fit multiple vehicles so had to remove the tabs not needed and they had to be completely removed and flush with bracket to fit into the dash but was worth the extra 5 minutes of work for a great fit.

Improper screw placement

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

After a struggle to get all the tabs removed without breaking the plastic product, I went to mount into my Impala and the four screw holes did not align with the three screw holes in the vehicle. This is a cheap piece of plastic. If possible I recommend finding a better mounting bracket, but this probably works for a lot of the other vehicles nicely. (other than the tab removal which is a pain)

Pros: Free

Cons: Tab removal is awful, started to mount into vehicle and mounting screw holes do not align.

Mounting kit is made to be used for many different vehicles, so a great deal of tab removal was necessary....instructions were confusing, but looking at how my old radio mounted, i was able to remove the unnecessary tabs pretty easily (with a dremel). Would have been stronger at the mounting points if it had closed tabs, but you're just keeping a radio in place not mounting an engine...overall good product...easy to use....

Pros: Easy to use...made to fit relatively easy

Cons: Flimsy plastic...open tabs...alot of tab removal (would have been hard without a dremel).

The dash kit fit perfectly, it was flush with the dash and made the receiver look as OEM as you can get. The dash kit will need to be modified, as it comes with all possible pegs attached, you will have to cut off those you don't need for your vehicle. This was easy enough to do.

Pros: Looks sharp, fits dash perfectly.

Cons: Requires modification, make sure to carefully read instructions so as not to cut the wrong pegs.

I'm hoping the plastic tabs that mount the deck will last. the stock stereo was secured by a metal bracket/enclosure. this kit is ALL plastic. Crossing fingers. And as noted by several other reviewers, the instructions kinda suck. Very confusing. Maybe I shoulda went to college. although the product was free with the purchase of the deck, knowing what I know now, I would've paid to get something sturdier to have the piece of mind.

This dash kit is perfect for my 97 Buick. It is designed to fit a number of makes and models. Installation was simple and quick. Highly recommended.

Pros: Easy configuration and installation.

Cons: Instructions could be a little more clear. A set of counter sinking screws would also be a benefit as the round head ones requires a little finagling to get it around the metal fram on the dash.

The kit works well but the instructions sent very useful. There were a few contradictions on which brackets to leave and which to remove. The easiest route was to hold it in the dash and decide what needed to be left. Now that it's installed though it looks really good.

Pros: Looks great, the fit is really good.

Cons: Installation instructions weren't very good. If I had followed them I probably would have had to purchase another unit to correctly install. Thankfully that didn't happen.

Kit worked great after I called to find out which tabs to cut off. Directions are not clear for my vehicle, so I called tech support and they emailed me a diagram specifically for my 2004 Tahoe. Was a breeze after that. Fit good in the end as well. I cut off the tabs with a small hacksaw.

Pros: Fit great -- give the stereo a great look in my dash.

Cons: Directions not clear as to which tabs to cut off. Either compare to your factory stereo or call tech support. Pretty simple in the end.

Works with almost every car in on the planet. I purchase from Crutchfield because I believe they give you the best product and the easiest installation instructions.

The installation of this piece of crap really makes me question future purchases from Crutchfield.

Used this for a 2006 Silverado CC HD. I found that the directions were not very clear.

Cheap kit, spend extra money for a nicer dash kit

AM from Oregon on 4/8/2015

2003 Chevrolet Tahoe

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

I can see why they give this kit away for free in a package with a new head unit. The instructions are the worst part about this kit, they are Very confusing and don't offer much help. I ended up being able to do the install without the instructions but someone with little knowledge of stereo installs might find this to be too hard and end up cutting off the wrong tabs. Just examine the parts in the kit, and examine how your stereo mounts in the dash and then cut off the unused tabs accordingly. The finished look of the kit though is very nice, and fits snug around the DDIN head units. The usable tabs line up well with the stock mounting points. I am glad I didn't have to pay extra for this kit.

Pros: Free with head unit purchase Looks great when finished Accurate mounting points

Cons: Useless instructions Faceplate can be difficult to secure to side pieces

Instructions are terribly laid out. Poor flow, structure, clarity and pictures. I figured it out but it was by trial and error and it took much longer than it should have.

Could use higher quality reinforced plastic.

This works but the instructions are horrible and you need a hacksaw to cut all the tabs off. I'd recommend getting one that is designed to work with your vehicle not for all GM vehicles. It looks ok but man it seems flimsy.

Pros: It looks ok and fills the space. It allows my unit to connect up to existing mount....eventually.

Cons: Not well constucted, too many tabs to cut off. Need a hacksaw for the work. Instructions are terrible and doesn't tell you which tabs to cut. It's a light grade plastic And can break easily.

The instructions are terrible!! They tell you to cut off tabs that shouldn't be cut off. I ended up going to Walmart and bought a Scosche kit that was almost identical and had very complete instructions. I am sure that this kit would have worked fine, but the directions were terrible and I ended up ruining the kit. Don't cut anything off until you look at it completely. It's free if you spend over $100 on a radio. That is the only thing good about it. If in doubt, go get the Scosche kit.

Pros: Free with a $100 radio

Cons: Instructions are too vague!

Terrible Instructions

Jason T from Georgia on 1/20/2015

2004 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

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

For a 2004 Silverado. The included instructions were complete and utter non-sense as most other reviewers have expressed. Once I decided to just toss the instructions, figuring out what needed to be done wasn't too bad by just holding the brackets and trim up to the hole and mounting locations. I cut the tabs and smoothed them down all with a Dremel which was not difficult at all and made all clean & smooth cuts. 2 stars just because the brackets do what they need to do, but lost the rest of the stars because the instructions are absolutely worthless and buyers are better off without them; whoever wrote them should be ashamed of themselves. Also - the bolts included were very short, not long enough for the JVC receiver I attached the bracket to. I had to use my own bolts.

Pros: Side brackets mount to trim easily, mounts to receiver as it's supposed to (with my own screws, not those included), mounts to dash easily.

Cons: * Confusing instructions that did not describe which tabs to remove, and how to follow each vehicle model also confusing. Don't look at these instructions, just throw them away and hold the trim and brackets up to the mounting location to figure out which ones should be removed. * Bolts included were not long enough for any normal installation.

This was pretty ridiculous. The instructions didn't show what tabs to break off, it was kind of a free-for-all. I thought maybe the instructions were made in Asia, but American International is actually made in Canada. I expected a Canada manual to have clear pictures. You pretty much have to see where your unit screws in when you take the old one out to ensure you don't have to buy another plastic radio holder. Better instructions would work wonders.

Pros: 1. It had an extra plastic piece for a Caddy. 2. I was able to use common sense on installation.

Cons: Instructions - more detail.

Not the easiest piece of plastic I have ever worked with. Cuts had to be made based on the make/model of car. There is no easy way to make these cuts. A flimsy piece of plastic. My dad got it done, but has the tools and work bench - a vise etc.. If you are just sitting in your car trying to hold and cut this piece with a pocket knife, well the outcome may not be one you like. After all was said and done, it fit the stereo as it should, but this one piece doubled the entire installation process in regard to time spent on the project.

Pros: Fit.

Like other reviewers, I found the directions to be utterly confusing. The instructions clearly said to cut off all side tabs for my application, however my common sense looking at the open hole said that didn't seem right. I figured out what seemed right and then called tech support to confirm. Poor, poor, poor directions. And then after that, I had to cut off, file, and sand 8-10 tabs (extra steps because I'm a little OCD about things being done right)....not plug and play by any means.

Pros: Will fit anything from a 1929 Packard and later...ok, not literally

This sure is one adaptable dash kit! I would say too adaptable because it lead to a lot of ambiguity and complexity. Because the instruction manual was so vague, I cut off the wrong tabs and had to buy a new kit. If you use this kit, take your time and study how the tabs should fit your vehicle. Do not rely solely on the instruction manual!

This kit looks great once assembled and installed, and the plastic seems sturdy enough to handle the job long term. If these were the only things that were to be judged, this would be a 5-star review. The problem is that the directions that were included with the kit were awful and misleading. Perhaps someone noticed this, because the directions that are available for this same product on the Crutchfield website have been altered to reflect clearer instructions. But even the online instructions are a bit unclear. For example, you have to figure out for yourself what is the ISO trim ring (the ring that goes around the face of the head unit). Plus the directions don't really show all angles of the bracket, which would have been nicer. I used this kit to install a new head unit in a 1997 Buick Skylark. Once I figured out what to do, cutting off all of the unneeded tabs was a fairly simple process. You can score and snap off tabs that you don't need using a sharp blade, a small hack saw, a Dremel-type tool, or whatever works for you. The cutting off part doesn't have to be pretty; everything except the front ISO trim ring will be hidden by the final install. After cutting off the unneeded tabs, snap the side brackets onto the ISO trim ring. Then attach to your head unit using screws.

Pros: Looks great! Plastic is sturdy. Was a perfect fit once all unneeded tabs were removed. Final install looks professional.

Cons: Printed directions were terrible. Directions available online were better.

This works well. I used it to install a double din Jensen VX7020 navigation receiver in my 2004 Chevrolet Avalanche on the recommendation of Crutchfield. They were right on. However, the instructions were so bad about which plastic pieces to cut off I probably lost an hour talking to Crutchfield and experimenting by cutting one plastic piece at a time until it fit..

Pros: Fits like a glove.

Cons: Written instructions were terrible!

This kit tries to fit into too many applications. The instructions were hard to decipher for my vehicle and I ended up having to remove more tabs that the instructions told me too for my vehicle. I ended up figuring it out by doing multiple test fits under it went in right. Breaking off the extra tabs was not easy either, I ended up using a Dremel to be sure I got a clean cut and didn't break the kit. I also had to carve out a bit of plastic to fit the screws through to the receiver. However, once I figured out what worked, the receiver was held in place securely into the kit and then the truck.

Pros: Decent final placement.

Cons: Difficult instructions. Hard to remove unneeded tabs.

Works Just Fine, Once You Figure Out Your're Better Off Not Reading th

k from Sacramento, CA on 10/3/2014

2005 Chevrolet Tahoe

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

The product itself worked just fine, once you figure it out. The reason I gave 3 Stars is simply because of the instructions. Turned what should have been a 1 hour deck install to 3 hours, just because you have no idea which section actually applies to your vehicle, and are paranoid you're going to clip the wrong tabs off. Obviously they are trying to make this product fit every vehicle manufactured since 1932, but the instructions don't live up to that goal - a blind monkey could have done a better job. "Cut all the tabs OFF". "No, don't cut all the tabs off". "Cut the tabs off the side brackets NOT shown above" - what?! Did the graphic artist take the day off when that section was written? You're better off just looking at the bracket and face pieces, seeing what mounting holes your have on your dash, and then clipping off what doesn't belong.

Pros: Does what it supposed to do; deck doesn't rattle around.

Cons: Instructions are severely in need of re-writing, with graphics that more clearly show what tabs are to be cut. Or just make bracket kits for each Make of vehicle, with instructions that are clear, rather than trying to match every vehicle on the planet with one bracket kit.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I wanted to give it 5 Stars but one of the side pieces wouldn't clip on properly and I have to ding the review for that. One side clipped on, but the other side wasn't molded properly and I couldn't get it to clip in place. I finally gave up and just put it in with it bulging a little. You can't see it once the dash is in place covering it and it looks really nice. It looks like a pro did the installation and I'm proud of how it all came out. For free(ish) I really can't complain.

Pros: 1. It looks really nice once installed. 2. It mounted perfectly with no adjustment hassles at all. 3. The plastic is very sturdy.

Cons: It's hard to remove the unused mounting plates. Although that's a good thing, I kind of deformed the piece of plastic I needed when I cut the unused parts off. So when you do this, score it first with a Stanley knife on both sides then use some heavy wire cutters to cut along the score marks. That's what I did, or you could use a Dremel cutting tool.

Well one needs something but this is just cheep plastic. The screws supplied didn't fit, so I had to supply my own. Much modifying was needed.

JP from North Augusta SC on 8/3/2014

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Put this into a 2003 Avalanche. Useless instructions can be replaced by: The two side mounts are not the same. Look at your factory stereo and match up the plastic tabs with the ones on your stereo. Cut off all the other tabs. Snap the sides into the rectangular cover piece(takes a bit of a push to get the two side tabs into their slots but should lock in straight) and mount to your new stereo (I was able to get three screws per side to fit). The Crutchfield notes on here state that the back metal mount would have to be cut out of my truck to put a KW-V200BT but I decided to see how close it really was. It was tight but all three screws tightened down and the factory trim went back on so that it looks extremely nice.

The confusion with breaking off tabs was not nearly as bad as I've ready here. You simply need to end up with the same mounting tab locations that your stock unit had. You literally have a map of the necessary tabs in your possession when you take the old head unit out, so you need not bother with the instructions if you find them confusing.

Pros: Easy to use. Free with my head unit.

Make Sure You Have a Cut-off Tool to Fabricate

VA Steve 55 from Leesburg, VA on 7/22/2014

2004 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

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

Short story - it does work with a JVC double-DIN deck in a 2004 Silverado 1500. The long story - make sure you have a rotary tool or some other cut-off tool to fabricate this bracket for your particular vehicle. "Universal" means this is basically raw material that the user must modify to fit their vehicle. It ships with mounting tabs for every vehicle it fits, and you have to cut off the tabs that interfere with your fit. It is made of plastic so make sure your don't ruin the brackets taking off the unnecessary tabs. I used a small rotary tool (name brand) with a cut-off wheel. Also, I agree completely with Bruce from Charlotte, the instructions are useless, follow his advice.

Pros: It works and looks nice when done.

Cons: Be prepared to spend some time fabricating and the instructions are crazy.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This adapter worked fine for installing a new head unit into our 2003 Pontiac Grand Am. As expected, it's just a big piece of plastic with tabs in the right spot to bolt to the OEM mounting holes. Where I think it could be improved is either a more specific product offering for each model of car, or a better way to customize it. As it is you get somewhat cryptic instructions that tell you to remove certain tabs depending on what model car you have. What you aren't told is how best to accomplish that, and the tabs aren't scored or otherwise marked in a way make them easy to remove (which kind of makes sense since that would also necessarily weaken them, which is not what you want for the tabs you keep). I ended up using wire snippers to remove the unwanted tabs, and it was difficult and the result a bit ugly. But it did work.

Pros: Does the job

Cons: Tabs are hard to remove cleanly, instructions are a bit cryptic

Realizing this is a universal kit for many applications, it seemed sill to end up with almost none of the kit actually installed on the unit itself.

Pros: Ease of installation.

Cons: None I can think of. Trash perhaps?

It works. Instructions are confusing. I know it's a universal kit so I shouldn't complain about having to break tabs, but they are difficult to trim.

Pros: Gets the radio in the truck.

Good product. Looks good installed. The instructions are lacking clarity for sure. The product required a great deal of manipulating to fit my application. Best advice is to remove the factory head unit and compare the pieces to make them match. If you are looking for a kit that you can pull out of the box and it install it this is not the one.

Pros: Works and looks good

Cons: Requires a great deal of manipulating and thoughtful decision making.

2001 Pontiac Sunfire

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

I've installed a few stereos with kits from Crutchfield, all without issue, however, this kit was a bit disappointing! So, this product, technically works for my car, however...I literally did not follow the instructions... they were too confusing! On one page, it would say to break off certain tabs if your vehicle was not this certain type, then you'd go to the next page and their would a diagram that looked almost like a side view, and we should "not remove" other tabs if your vehicle was on this new list. In the end, I had to put the pieces together, do what I will call a "visual fit" of the bracket, then break off all the tabs based on that... Like I said, it technically works, but I would almost recommend not following the instructions on this one!

Pros: It will fit... there are about 20 different car models this bracket will fit, and it certainly worked for my car

Cons: The instructions were confusing and a bit hard to follow.

This kit works as advertised, but you need to take care when breaking off the tabs you do not need. I used a hacksaw blade (by hand) to remove the larger tabs on the trim plate. The side-plate tabs were removed using needle nose pliers.

Directions for installing this kit were very confusing. I literally took the directions after reading them over 10 times and threw it out. I then lined up the brackets that would be screwed in and cut the rest off.. I know the kit was made to accommodate many vehicles but i feel like the directions need some work. In my opinion, ease of installing and directions are just as important as the quality of the product.

Iinstalled in a 2004 silverado and it fits up perfectly.

I actually had to order a second one since the "free" one that came with my order, I cut the wrong monting tabs off. Maybe out of haste as well, but insttructions could be better.

This unit can fit thousands of radios. Once modified (per instructions) it fit my radio perfectly. In order to fit my Jensen I had to cut most of the tabs off. They are mounted real good so it was hard to cut them. The instructions are very vague and I had to read them several times before I got it. Once modified it fit nice.

Pros: Great fit once modified for my radio. Some extra parts I didn't need.

Cons: Only gave 4 stars because the instructions suck and tabs were hard to break off.

It works, but the instructions were not very good. Lots of tabs to cut off! They are not clear though on which ones. Everything that I could see in the instructions seemed that you were supposed to cut all of the tabs off, but I knew that some had to stay. I finally had to remove the old stereo to compare. My suggestion, just throw away instructions and line it up yourself to see what you need to do.

Pretty basic - a few pieces of plastic. The problem is in the instructions. They don't depict what you need to do very well. You are supposed to remove numerous unneeded tabs, but the diagrams leave a lot to be desired so you don't know which ones to remove and which ones to leave. I had to call to ask.

Pros: Ended up with a nice clean installation.

This is a great kit to make installing non-factory radio a fairly easy chore. Problem is it is made for multiple vehicles and you need a dremmel or a multi-cutting tool to make it fit properly. For the 2005 Silverado you have to take off nearly every single mounting tab to make it fit.

Steve KY from Ashland KY on 1/3/2014

Works but instructions really sketchy.This thing apparently is cleverly designed to mount every radio made into any car ever made. You have to figure out which tabs you need and which you don't. Then cut off the unneeded ones. The instructions are vague. And you don't want to cut off one that you will need . If you use the kit daily, probably not a problem, but for a first time, a lot of head scratching!

Decent product but could use improved instructions

JET from Fort Myers, FL on 1/1/2014

2005 GMC Sierra 1500

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

Overall, not a bad product, and better in quality than the brittle Metra kits I've used in the past. The tabs that are meant to be broken off to customize the kit for different vehicles could be easier to remove (perhaps score them better), and the instructions provided could use a lot of improvement. For example, this kit instructs one to break off the tabs "as shown" in the illustration, but the illustration isn't marked at all, it just shows the part, unaltered and unmarked. An experienced installer won't have too much trouble (or perhaps none at all... I didn't) figuring out what to remove to make it work, but I can see where a novice/beginner might get tripped up and potentially remove something that is necessary for the installation.

Pros: Sturdy, good fit, overall good quality, and as always, provided free by Crutchfield with the purchase of most head units, one of the many reasons I continue to buy from them!

Cons: Poorly written/marked instructions

Instructions could be a bit clearer since you are required to cut and remove tabs on the plastic. Very sold mount once you get it in. It takes a fair amt of force to snap the front on to the sides and I was worried about it snapping, but it held up!

Pros: Quick and sturdy

Cons: Instructions could use some fine tuning, but after you stare at it for a while and get up the nerve to start cutting tabs off, it's ok. Several places the instructions say "remove all tabs except models not listed above" ...and there are no models listed above at all
