Quality appears good, Personnel with my engineering background, a heaver Gage material could be used to ensure a solid attachment in the dash. and maybe a set of additional side attachments plates, ones with the extra mounting flanges and ones with out.

The fitment of the dash kit was great. I think the directions need some review as they were not correct for my vehicle. But it was pretty simple to figure out after looking at the stock radio configuration.

Pros: Easy to install. Looks good when finished.

Cons: Directions not correct for vehicle. Had to cut off screw brackets that were not needed as the were in the way.

This kit fit my dash well and held the Kenwood stereo I purchased just fine. However, because it is universal and used for multiple vehicles, some of the instructions seemed unclear and the rear plastic mounts needed to be cut off which took a bit of work. Needed to call Crutchfield several times to get it right (Crutchfield customer service is 5+ stars however). Overall it works but takes a little effort to get it to fit the specific stereo I purchased.

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

Fits nice after you figure it out, but many people who are not garage tinkerers will not be able to and will end up living with the unfinished look and loose bezel. The instructions were terrible and unclear in regard to whether or not the spaces are required. To all all who read this, for a 2004 - 2008 F-150 they are not. The next and biggest problem is that the supplied brackets that attach the radio are plastic where the brackets that came off of the the factory radio are metal. Therefore, they have to make the plastic brackets significantly thicker than the metal brackets in order to maintain the same strength. This extra thickness causes the factory bezel to now fit poorly as it can only be fastened with the bottom clips vs. the six or eight (depending on the model) that are required for a flush tight fit I am guessing that Metra and others use plastic brackets as it is cheaper to mold plastic than it is to to stamp and punch steel ones. However, at least in the case of this very popular vehicle there is no way to obtain a tight professional looking fitment with this approach. Consequently, I made the mistake of assuming that the bezel would fit with the supplied brackets and cracked it over this issue. This caused me to have to do some epoxying and a trip to the junkyard vs. paying for a new bezel from Ford for $540.00. I then removed and modified the original radio brackets by drilling and grinding them. The bezel now fits cleanly with al

Kit worked in my 04 F150 but directions are terribly worded. Instructions direct you to use the spacers for my model. But with them in place the unit sticks out too far and dash trim with the controls wouldn't snap into place. Had to remove the spacers to get proper fit.

Cons: Instructions need to be reviewed/corrected

Works okay, concerned about long-term durability

Adam from Lehi, UT on 12/12/2018

2006 Ford F-150

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

So, this was included free with the purchase of my head unit. The finished look is good (see photo), which is the only reason this review isn't 1 or 2 stars. The included instructions were horrible to follow. The instruction booklet covered 40 different vehicles, and at each step you have to scan through a list to see if that step applies to your vehicle or not. Additionally, the instructions had me trim pieces off (good thing I own a dremel) - the required tools didn't mention anything about that. The other concern I have is that this is made of ABS plastic. and the plastic tabs are the only thing holding my head unit in place. The factory head unit had a screw on the rear that made it stable, connected in the front and back. With the new Pioneer AVH-1440NEX head unit, the back end is just "floating" in the dash and the only thing holding it in place is this plastic kit. If it were installed in a vehicle that stays on pavement all the time I wouldn't be worried, but it is installed in my truck which does a fair bit of rough, bumpy driving off-road. The last aftermarket stereo I installed came with a stamped steel sleeve, which was much more durable.

Pros: Was included free with my head unit purchase

Cons: Had to cut to fit with a dremel Plastic

Keith from Forest Hill, MD on 10/19/2018

2006 Ford F-150

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

This thing is pretty terrible. The directions are printed on a half-page booklet with small lettering and small diagrams. It's a generic kit that fits a lot of models so I guess Metra figures "we'll just write incredibly generic , poor directions and sell it on the cheap". It called for using the spacers on my vehicle, which weren't needed luckily because the mounting screws would've been too short (as some reviewers have said). It also says to cut the rear tabs but does not show where, leaving it up to you to figure out. I emailed Crutchfield and let them know there's other manufacturers than Metra. The only reason I gave it two stars is because it does fit and hold the unit secure, although with a lot of frustration and swearing beforehand.

Pros: It fits

Cons: Terrible installation instructions

No problems with the kit, fit and finish are very nice. I would have liked the screws to be about 1/4" longer to make it easier to engage the U-nuts (I had to look that one up) that are used to fasten the radio to the dash itself but they worked out fine once I help everything together tightly when screwing them in.

Works and after attaching to radio seems solid. Had to remove spacers that instructions said to install and cut a section so the radio will screw in correctly (Pioneer avh-1440nex). My main issue is the angle of the face of the radio with the kit. The bottom of the radio is recessed slightly compared to the top. Probably necessary due to the interior design of the F150, though.

I was not really a fan of this one, I had to cut off the 4 large pieces in the back with a saw to even get it to fit and even that was tight. I felt like I was about going to break it. Where to put the screw holes in the radio were not really lining up right either. It does its job but with adjustments and some finagling

Not much to say here... it's a lot of plastic, but it gets the job done. I did have to cut off the back tabs on the side, to fit it into the opening (2004 F-150), but the manual does say to do this, for certain car models. I would have preferred to pay $10 more to get far less plastic. I seriously dislike the excessive use of plastic; especially in areas where alternatives are usable. While It does the trick, I'll likely be keeping my eye out for one that's made with an aluminum face and some sort of metal mounting bracket in back. Used an oscillating saw to cut the back tabs off, but it ended up melting through part of it, instead of cutting it. Be sure to secure it with a bench vise if you use one, though; just don't over-tighten so you crack the plastic.

Pros: Fits and works.

Cons: Plastic... so much plastic! Requires cutting off back tabs for some vehicles.

Easy install

Made installing my Kenwood DDX6904S super easy into my '05 F150. Just had to trim the rear mounting tabs off to get it to fit into the dash. Eliminates need for DIN sleeve included with radio (instructions don't mention whether you use the DIN sleeve or not, you DON'T)

Pros: No DIN sleeve needed

Cons: Instructions a bit vague regarding DIN sleeve

I even read the manual (I know, who does that?) and although it lists my car in one of the sections, it doesn't say to "use some pliers to break off the extra ears you don't need". I couldn't figure out how to get it into the opening, it was physically larger than the hole, and tech support told me to just bust the extras off. Easy enough, just think that should be in the manual where the instructions for my car were. Looks nice and clean though, so all's well that ends well. Also, the tech support guy didn't think I was an idiot for not thinking to do that which was nice.

Fit perfectly, but in my 2006 F150, it did not require the included spacers, as described in the instructions. Cutting off the unneeded tabs was a little tricky, but was able to do it without damaging the unit using a coping saw.

Pros: Perfect fit

Cons: Removing unneeded tabs was a little tricky.

The screws provided are too short The finish fit was not so precise, the gaps around the radio and vehicle plastic are not equal all around.

Pros: Gets the job done

The kit overall fit fine. The rear tabs having to be cut off required quite a bit of work with a Dremel tool. With the needed spacers, the enclosed screws were not long enough. Kit would be much better if the optional tabs were designed to be more easily removed, and proper size screws were included. A great kit otherwise.

It's okay. Not as precise as I would have hoped, and required cutting away of some parts (per instructions) to fit my vehicle. Also, the included screws were not really long enough to compensate for the added depth caused by the adapter. Three screws were barely long enough with the fourth not grabbing at all because it was too short for that bracket. That said, what other choice do you have if you need an adapter?

Couldn't get the radio exactly square. Bolts that came with it were too short requiring a trip to hardware store. They were the right length, but they were self drill bolts, so the first 3/16 of an inch were a drill bit, not threads :(. Also had to saw off 4 tabs. Used on 2009 F250.

Pros: Holds the radio

Cons: Required an hour more time than it should of and a trip to the hardware store.

Did what it was supposed to. Instructions were a bit confusing but figured it out after a bit. You have to cut away the back mounts. I ended up grinding them away. Instructions did not explain why you needed to do that so I was not sure if I was supposed to do it or not. If you don't, the mount will not fit in some vehicles.

Pros: Fit perfectly. Free.

Cons: Need to cut off/grind off part in order to fit.

Crutchfield customer from Merrimack, NH on 1/9/2018

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Decent kit, however for the Sony XAV-AX200SXM receiver, the slots don't line up well, and without filing, the receiver is tilted in the frame. Additionally, the supplied screws are SAE and #8 whereas the OEM screws are metric and possibly close to a #6 screw. If you attempt to use the spacers which require longer screws, they will not engage the OEM clip-nuts as these are the #8s. The OEM screws barely engage the nuts. I had expected to find a sturdier bracket, more like a metal sleeve with facia of plastic, not the entire assembly.

Pros:

Cons: Plastic, how long before it fatigues due to heat?

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

I guess you get what you pay for, but I would have paid more for a better quality option if Crutchfield had offered one when I added the head unit to my cart. Cheap, flimsy plastic. Instructions did not explain how to attach the side brackets to the front. Also I had to break off - yes, that was in the instructions - these side tabs since they were incompatible with my vehicle. Why couldn't they include the right bracket, or at least make the side tabs easily removable without breaking? And the screw holes were barely in alignment, I was only able to screw it in at the top and not the bottom. Finally, after mounting it, it isn't a 100% perfect fit. Very frustrated with this bracket. Only giving 2 stars instead of 1 because it actually worked and doesn't look terrible, but I would recommend looking for a better bracket.

Pros: Doesn't look bad once installed

Cons: Poor instructions, had to break tab off side to use it, screw holes not properly aligned, not a perfect fit, cheap plastic.

This was not a "perfect fit" and I use that term loosely. Installation of the dash kit on to the HU was a snap but trying to fit it in the radio compartment was not as easy. The back tabs would not allow the kit to "slide" into place. I had to cut a third of the tips off which was not a big deal in the sense that I did not need those back brackets to secure the HU to the radio chassis.

Pros: Its bracket

Cons: Needed retrofitting

Does it fit? Yes. Does it get a little confusing what to keep and what to remove? Unfortunately, yes. Not having installed one of these before, I was relying heavily on diagrams and instructions. I've certainly read worse, but I've also read better.

Pros: Fits as expected.

Cons: Instructions are in need of review.

Easy Install

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Product performed as expected. Installation instructions should be updated as they stated I did not have to trim the rear tabs. After hooking up all the wires and proceeding to install the radio itself I discovered that this would not fit unless the rear tabs were removed. This would have been nice to do before having all of the wires and RCA leads hooked up. Mount has plenty of mounting holes for multiple radios. Easy to install and a great looking. Seems to be a solid mount with no movement once installed also.

Pros: Performs as expected

Cons: updated instructions are needed for my particular vehicle.

Made install super simple, but looks cheap. Would have preferred a non textured plastic that doesn't have any visible grooves, notches, or other defects. Doesn't match the appearance of the stereo or dash. Would have paid another $10-$20 for an upgraded kit. I would have given 5 stars if I had used it on a $100 stereo, but $400 deserves a premium option.

Pros: Easy install.

Cons: Looks cheap compared to the appradio 4 in it and the rest of the interior.

2007 Ford F-150

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

Not a great fit. In the world of "Plug and Play" I shouldn't have to cut tabs off to make it work. It's sticks out to far which cause my F150 trucks dash trip to stick out. The HU was not a snug fit either until it was screwed on. The HU does not fit flush at the bottom. I also had to cut slots on each side to be able to have three screwed on each side to on.

Pros: Free with purchase

Cons: Didn't fit in so many ways. The instructions were vague.

Looks good. Sort of matches dash. Fit not so good. The little spacers you add could probably be left off. I called tech support to see if it would make a difference to leave them off and tech support was no help at all. "You can try it". Who wants to pull the unit back out to try something different only to find it could make matters worse. I will at some point when I get over the fear of breaking the trim piece.

This kit got the job done and the radio looks pretty good now that it is installed, but I found the instructions a bit confusing to follow. Especially the reference to tabs that might need to be cut off. The drawings in the manual could be clearer. Also, for my 2007 Ford Fusion, with the extra spacers required for proper installation in the Fusion, I found the original screws used to install the radio back into the car were no longer long enough. At least with my kit, there were no replacement screws that were long enough provided. I ended up going to the hardware store and getting #8 x 1 1/4 sheet metal screws and they seemed to work fine.

Pros:

Cons: 1) Instruction manual could be better. 2) Longer screws to reinstall radio with new METRA mounting frame, not provided.

This did not fit the head unit I purchased from here. I contacted customer support only to be apologized to for the problem and that they will measure the head unit again.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I used this kit with my 2008 f150. After 8 months of use i was going down a slightly bumpy dirt road and the receiver fell into my dash. I highly suggest to order 2 rear support straps. The design of this kit basically holds the weight of the entire receiver on the 4 little tabs connecting to the front face of the install kit.

Pros: Looks good, clean finish

Cons: Somewhat flimsy and cheeply made. Plastic tabs broke off. Not well made. Should automatically come with rear support straps.

screws too short

ttab from Barnegat, NJ on 4/30/2016

2011 Ford E Series

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

Pretty simple ... had a little help from Crutchfield support just to be sure ... the 4 mounting screws supplied to hold the bracket to the chassis were too short.. And are the wrong diameter and thread. The originasl are metric and the kit supplies U.S. thread screws. The supplied and necessary shims (4) would be easier to install if they has a self stick surface. Mounting in the Econoline requires the shims and longer and proper thread screws than those supplied.

Pros: fairly simple

Cons: shims should have self stick to hold in place when installing ... Screws to mount are too short and are a different diameter and thread than the originals.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The dash kit fits decently, however, the included instructions for my vehicle (2012 Ford F-250) were not correct. I ended fitting it myself, without the use of the manufacturer instructions and only had to trim off the back "U-hook" looking brackets. Once trimmed and in the dash, the top two screws line up perfectly, but the mounting pegs at the bottom create a separation the the included spacers aren't the right size for. Overall, it works, it looks decent, but is it truly custom? No. I don't think so. there was way too much modification needed to make this vehicle specific dash kit fit perfectly to call it vehicle specific.

The Metra Dash Kit works great and is easy to install ... once the 4 large mounting tabs are cut-off. The tabs only work for 4 of the many Ford models. The rest require that the tabs be cut-off. Doing so was not an easy task whatsoever! This made the receiver installation project difficult because it required a table vise and hack saw to be able to cut the tabs flush enough to the surface of the brackets allow the unit to slide into the dash opening. There should be an easier way to remove the tabs or optional side brackets without the rear tabs. If I hadn't had the table vise and hacksaw, I would have not been able to install this kit. Most of the auto in-dash products sold by Crutchfield boast not needing any special tools but this kit is a major exception and very disappointing!

Pros: Fits well Simple instructions.

Cons: Mounting tabs in back very difficult to remove

Unnecessary Offset

jmh from Rome, Georgia on 12/26/2015

2007 Ford Fusion

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

The face plate of this kit allows the head unit to fit flush with the face plate at the top of the radio, but has a 1/16 offset at the bottom of the head unit. Therefore, the head unit is at a slight angle inside the face plate making it not flush. I would buy another brand of kit.

Pros: None

Cons: Cheap plastic and not a flush fit allowed by design.

Does what it needs to do

Brandon M from Katy, Texas on 12/23/2015

2008 Ford F-150

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

It is simply a gap filler for your dash. It does what it sets out to do. One small complaint is there is a seam in the front, center of the top edge that is somewhat noticeable. I had to install it on my head unit twice (my fault) because I didn't notice I needed to cut the back mounting brackets off which was difficult to do until I got my wire cutter out and snipped them off. The bracket seems sturdy and the holes lined up like they should. Another complaint is that it does not sit quite flush with the dash. It needs to be a bit thicker on top or some kind of shim in the top screws because it sits back a small amount, just enough to leave a small gap. There was spacers included I will need to open my dash back up and see if I can insert them.

Pros: It works

Cons: Does not mount flush with the dash. I will need to open it back up and see if I can get the spacers to work. The back brackets should be easier to cut off/remove or have the option to buy one without them.

This Metra adapter does fit in the F150 if you can cut the rear tabs. I did so with some side cutters that didn't do a great job, so I ended up feeding the radio with attached bracket through the bottom of the dash opening (HVAC controls area). I also did not need the spacers that the instructions said to add to the front tabs.

Pros: Looks nice installed

Cons: Hard to cut the rear tabs good enough

Not a fan of this. I'm kind of disappointed with this mess. Extensive grinding was required around the perimeter to fit my Kenwood double din head unit and to top it all off it sticks out about 3/8 inch in my super duty ford truck. Made in usa???? Hah no wonder their jobs are shipped overseas! Look elsewhere if there is any other options.

Pros: None that I can think of. Unnecessarily aggravating.

Cons: This junk used to be free with purchase, now they make you pay for this lousy engineered stuff. What up Crutchfield?

This is a very good product. It was easy to use, honestly, I don't know how good the instructions were because I didn't read them. It fit perfectly in my dash and made a very clean install.

Pros: Finished product looks great!

Cons: A few extra steps are needed using the supplied spacers behind the mounting holes to level the mount up with the dash panel and cutting off the rear mounting brackets (which I did glance and see in the instructions), but that's all part of using a "universal" kit.

Directions are horrible. My suggestion is to read over them to get an overview, then throw them in the trash. Don't refer back to them. Use your intuition and common sense to get the best possible fit for your application. There will be some trial and error, but if you stick with it, eventually, it will fit great and look great.

Pros: End product looks great and fits great.

Cons: Directions are garbage. Will take some patience to get it installed perfectly.

Dash Kit for 2005 f-150

Crutchfield customer from St. Charles, Missouri on 3/15/2015

2005 Ford F-150

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

I bought this installation kit to install a Double Din head unit in my 05 F150 to replace the factory unit. The kit was relatively easy enough to assemble. I did not need the spacers behind the 4 mounting holes as the instructions indicated that I would and when I went to install the screws into the side of the stereo, none of the holes would line up properly with the holes on the installation kit. There is a ridge on the back edge of the kit that prevented the stereo from seating properly into the opening of the kit. With the help of a Dremel tool, I was able to remove the ridge to allow the stereo to seat properly, thereby allowing the screw holes to line up. With the exception of this modification, it is a decent kit. If you have a little bit of time and ingenuity, you can make it work. Not quite the plug and play that I would have expected.

Pros: Easy to assemble, inexpensive

Cons: Modifications necessary to provide better fitment of the stereo.

Opening in the faceplate is too large for Pioneer double din radios. Installed gasket pieces to sides of radio for tight fit and to keep radio centered on faceplate. Four of the eight side mount screw holes did not align up with the mounting holes in radio. Had to file out 4 holes to place screws in. Haven't installed it in my 2008 Ford F-150 truck yet. Don' know if there will be more challenges. Overall this product does not fit good without doing modifications. Maybe this is why they include them for free with a radio purchase.

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

The finished product looks awesome. With that being said, there were a few issues. The instructions were, well, let's say vague. Vague should cover it in a PC sort of a way. If you are using it for a vehicle that isn't listed in the instructions be prepared to get a little creative and do some thinking. I eventually had to put the old radio next to the new one to figure out how to get it mounted properly. The other issue was that the plastic on the bracket is heavy and thick. Now this is a good thing because it makes it stronger. The bad thing about it is the mounting screws that came with the radio weren't long enough to get thru the thickness of plastic. A quick trip to the hardware store solved the issue but it was just one more thing that needed to be improvised.

Pros: Looks awesome and is good heavy gage plastic.

Cons: The instructions are useless. The plastic may be too thick for the mounting screws provided with your radio.

As others have mentioned in their reviews, this product gets the job done and looks nice, but the instructions are a little vague in telling you that you might need to modify the side mounting brackets in order to get the assembly to fit into your dash. We installed into a 2009 Ford Fusion and couldn't figure out how to get stereo and dash kit to fit when all assembled. We had a professional finally do the install and he explained as others have mentioned that you have to trim the tabs off on the side brackets. Metra should mention something in their instructions for first time installers that there may need to be some modification if it's not a drop in fit for your vehicle!

Pros: Looks nice and performs as you would expect it to.

Cons: Could use a little more clarity in the instructions about modifying the bracket to fit different vehicles.

End result looks great. I had to realign the radio a few times to make all the edges line up correctly and look acceptable (I'm OCD) with the factory trim, but the end result looks great!

The instructions were a little vague for my application and took a few minutes to figure it out, but when I did, the install was a breeze. The part that was not clear is you don't use the cage or the front trim that comes with the receiver and you need to screw this bracket directly into the sides of the receiver.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This is the second one of this exact install kit I own. The first one I got from a local tag store when I bought my first head unit. I had resold it and purchased my new head unit which came with this kit. As other reviewers have stated, the instructions are lacking. They are vague and not totally correct. It said I needed spacers, which I knew I didn't from the previous install. You do have to slice off the rear mounting tabs for the 04 F150 XLT. Mounting holes could be aligned better. I had to further mod the trim plate to flush my new head unit to the dash. This may be an issue with the design of my head unit? Take your time when assembling this kit. The mounting tabs only go on one way to the face trim plate. I would of liked to see this with a smooth satin finish to match the interior of my F150 but not a big deal. 4 stars for the lacking detail in the instructions. Overall good product.

Pros: Simple, fits, free with my purchase.

Cons: Lacking instructions, textured trim

For the most part, this dash kit was exactly what we needed. It fit the stereo perfectly, but had mounting tabs on the back side of if that wouldn't allow the kit to go into the dash. They had to be cut off. The screws also weren't long enough to mount the kit to the dash, so we opted for self-tappers that we had on hand. But overall, good quality and the right fit for the truck and stereo.

Pros: Good quality, sturdy, fast shipping, good price.
