Perhaps the Dash Kit specs need to be rechecked.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Didn't fit the Boss BV755BLC radio without modification. I only got the trim to work by overdrilling holes and duct taping to the sides of the radio. That said, the plastic looks nice anyway.

Pros: Better than nothing. I've used this same kit with an Alpine radio and it fit and mounted perfectly.

Cons: As written in review. Less than optimal.

This dash kit is pretty straight forward. Fits pretty well and ended up to be a pretty clean looking install with no gaps on my truck. It does need to be trimmed on some vehicles ( instructions are pretty clear on this) so a dremel or oscillating tool comes in handy.

Crutchfield customer from Dixon, MO on 4/23/2020

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

This bracket worked as expected, but could not possibly be made of cheaper plastic. Cost cutting at its finest and will most likely not last very long. Be extremely careful tightening these down- they want to break. I strongly suggest looking around for a more substantial bracket. I will most assuredly be replacing these in the near future.

Pros: Worked as expected

Cons: Very very cheaply made

I bout this for my 2010 Yaris hatchback to install a double din Boss radio. It was far from a perfect fit. I ended up having to trim 1/8 of an inch off each side for it to fit. Basically the entire overlap portion. I also had to grind off the small nipples on the metal mounting plates that came with the Yaris to be used with the radio and adapters.

Crutchfield customer from San Diego, CA on 2/11/2020

2002 Toyota Celica GT

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

The dash kit did not fit flush with the head unit. Each side had several millimeters of extra material that pushed the front pieces out to the side and would not fit within the dash opening. Glad we checked before getting everything installed. With some rough gain sand paper, a flat surface and some patience we were able to remove the extra plastic and make it fit. Final result is satisfactory. I'm sure there is a wide variation on the dimensions of head units and dashboards, so maybe this kit works with most and we just got unlucky?

Pros: Free with the stereo we purchased. Did end up working fine after modification. Looks fine after the installation was complete.

Cons: Not a perfect fit with the stereo we have.

2007 Scion tC

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

I was working on a customers car who had a 2006 Scion xB was recommended this product would fit. I guess this would have fit if I had the original brackets from the OEM radio. Since the radio in the car was already an aftermarket single DIN this was not the case. I had to cut this bracket into pieces and fabricate (cut apart) the single din plastic to be able to jimmy rig the radio with gorilla tape to fit securely. There is nothing to screw in with this bracket to the vehicle. I would not reccomend this bracket at all except ONLY to fill in the gap on the dashboard.

Pros: Fills in the hole in the dash

Cons: Does not mount to the vehicle. Does not Fit properly in a 06 scion xb.

Flexible, easy instructions, does the job adequately

Jason from ATLANTA, GA on 1/14/2020

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

Installed this in my 2006 Tundra. The instructions were super easy to follow, this unit is used for multiple models of Toyota, and the cut lines were super clear for me. Bonus for other 1st-Gen Tundra drivers, the line you need to cut across is embossed and you can perfectly fit a hacksaw blade across it as a guide for a perfect cut. Instructions mention you need to grind of the locator bumps on the OEM steel brackets. Thankfully my Crutchfield advisor also informed me it's helpful to slightly grind down two little ears on the OEM steel adapter plates (you must re-use) which these brackets lay over - had he not mentioned this, I would've needed to pull everything back out again and re-fit. Because of that tip, I was able to prepare and my entire kit install took less than 10 minutes and fit PERFECTLY SQUARE! My only gripe ... on either side of the stereo opening, there's a half-millimeter gap or so around everything, and I don't like that the "ears" of the bracket make my Alpine ILX-W650 appear 2-3mm forward, past the kit. I'd prefer a more flush-mount appearance, but this is such a huge nit-pick on my part I'm hesitant to mention it. Just saying it in case this helps anyone else.

Pros: Well-written and very clear instructions. Strong product, nice looking hardware included. Made for a very quick and easy install on my 2006 Tundra.

Cons: Two small complaints: First, this kit isn't designed for a totally flush-mount install, its ears rest a couple millimeter behind the head unit screen which may bother some people. Second, there's a tiny gap around the entire perimeter of my double-DIN radio which is only visible in extremely bright circumstances.

These fill in the dash opening well but directions could have been better. Listed my car model on removal of stereo but when it came time for the install it didn't list my model and I had to cut the pieces so they would bolt on my stereo mounting brackets. Just had to wing it and hope for the best.

Pros: Fill in dash opening well

Cons: Directions could have been more thorough for my model. Showed several other models, just not mine.

Helps complete the setup, but you will have to modify it for my specific application, so you need to know what you're doing. I even had to add two small screws and nuts for my application because the kit did not account for how it would mount up (Sony XAV-AX5000 in a 2006 Toyota Sequoia).

Pros: Good finish.

Cons: Too much custom modding required.

Simple but it does it's job. The directions said on some models the kit may needed to be modified. In my case it needed to be cut where the straight lines are on the kit. Nothing that a dremel tool couldn't take care of. However the screws were a bit too short. Luckily, we had some extras screws that did fit just fine. Slapped the dash kit onto the stereo and it looks great.

Pros: Looks good

I used this to install a new Boss radio in a 200 toyota tundra. It was basically a hole filler on each side of the radio. I had to cut the part to make it fit. It was not very compatible with the OEM brackets. Only one screw held this on the side and stuck out on each side, not flush like I would rather have had.

It fills the gap when you put a double din radio in a Toyota Tundra. You have to cut it. I found using a razor blade to deepen the existing line I was able to use a sharp pair of scissors to cut it.

Definitely a required item when I replaced the head unit in my FJ Cruiser. Only issue I had was I needed to trim the front mounting holes so they cleared my mounting brackets to sit flush. If you don't have a dremmel it could get frustrating.

Required some trimming but works as expected!

Charles from Destin, FL on 3/25/2019

2005 Toyota Tundra

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

Instructions included weren't accurate for my specific application of a 05 Toyota Tundra with JBL but with the help of a Dremel, modifying the dash kit and part of my factory mount was easy enough. According to the instructions I had to cut the dash kit in a specific location of the dash kit but it was backwards. I had to cut it like it was a Scion(left of Tundra in manual) in order for it to fit. Keep this in mind if you're installing this in an 05 Tundra and keep a rotary tool nearby!

Poor design for use in Toyota FJ

Mike from Anaheim, CA on 1/7/2019

2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser

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

I had to take a grinder to these plastic brackets to make them fit. Also, the screws that come with the radio are not long enough to use with these brackets. The Sony radio I bought this for uses 5 mm sheet metal screws. These cannot be found at local hardware stores, nor can you find anything shorter than a half inch. #10 screws are close, but slightly undersized and pull out of the holes. Bought four #12 x 1/2 inch sheet metal screws, clamped them in a vice and ground them to length. #12 screws are too big, but I forced them into the holes anyway. For the cost of the install kit, the user should not have to machine parts to make it work. About half the time spent on the install was trying to get these two stupid little pieces of trim mounted.

Pros: Looks ok once installed

Cons: Design is not compatible with the vehicle mounting brackets without a lot of tools, work and time.

Looks pretty nice to me and glad I got it as factory radio was wider than a standard double din radio. Only downside is that I had to use a cutting tool to trim it down to fit properly. so if you don't have a rotary cutting tool handy, you might want to get one in case you need it.

Overpriced but did the job

Jack from Chesapeake, VA on 12/4/2018

2005 Toyota 4Runner

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

It did the job, and is made in the USA...which I genuinely appreciate. It is extremely overpriced for what it is though. Two pieces of molded plastic is all you get, and there is potential that you will have to shave away some of the plastic with a dremel tool, depending on your specific factory bracket. Fair market value would top off at $5...at that price, I'd go 5 Stars.

Pros: It fit and looks okay...

Cons: Overpriced and is a matte finish and the radio is a glossy black finish.

I used this to install a double-DIN stereo in a 2008 Toyota Yaris. It did what it was supposed to do.

Pros: It fills in the gaps on either side of my stereo. Looks nice in the dash.

Cons: You end-up reusing part of the factory radio's mounting brackets that are attached to the factory radio (not a bad thing - that's just how it is designed). I pulled the factory radio, and had both it (with mounting brackets still attached) and the new stereo side-by-side when installing the adapter pieces. Do one-side at a time - it isn't intuitive.

Great product but doesn't hold radio.

Anthony from Logan, UT on 5/24/2018

2004 Toyota 4Runner

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

This is a fair product for what it does. It basically covers the holes next to the radio maybe a 1/2 inch on each side of the radio. I installed this in my 04 Toyota 4Runner. It does connect to the radio perfectly but as for holding it in the space, uhhh no. I ended up having to drill 4 holes, 2 on top and bottom on the plastic around the radio and use safety wire to hold the radio in place. It's pretty dang firm now. But other than that it's great product!

Pros: Cheap, small, same color as car plastic.

Cons: Doesn't hold radio at all.

Grant from Eagle Mtn, UT on 5/22/2018

2003 Toyota Tundra

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

You have to do some customization for this to fit - which was a surprise. Depending on your vehicle's mounting bracket you have to cut away certain portions of the dash kit. I also had to grind some locating pins on my factory brackets to fit my radio. The instructions are perfect about how to tear down the dash and reassemble. The fit is okay, there was still a little gapping in my 2003 Tundra.

Pros: Instructions

Cons: Modification to the kit is sometimes required.

OEM look installation!

Oliver from Las Vegas, NV on 5/3/2018

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Purchased for use on a 2004 Toyota Tundra thinking it can replace the factory bracket for those with double din sized oem or factory upgraded JBL Sound Sytems. I made the mistake of throwing away my oem radio on my first Head Unit upgrade to a single din not thinking i would eventually upgrade again. What this kit would do though is make any aftermarket HU look like a factory installed component so keeping the factory brackets are a must for Toyota vehicles along with double checking vehicle applications.

Not bad dash filler

Mark S from Orlando, FL on 3/21/2018

These seem a little flimsy/weak. Also, I had to do more than what the instructions said to make it work with my radio. It will work in your favor if you have a Dremel and the cone shaped grinder head for it. This worked wonderfully for me to shave and shape the piece the way I needed to in order to make it fit properly. Once in place though, they look great, effectively filling the air space between the radio and my dash.

Pros: Looks good once in place

Cons: Feel a bit flimsy, had to be careful not to break them.

It's ok... There still is a gap around the console but I'm probably the only one that will notice. I did have to cut it to use it, not so bad. But if you don't have a drimmel you may be in trouble. It could just be a little wider...

Definitely need this to fit the open spaces between the slot and the receiver...but very fragile. I had to cut it to match the factory brackets and one side cracked straight through. The instructions sort of expect this to happen and have a statement: "if it breaks here, use this half"

Instructions a little confusing but figured it out. You have to pay attention to what to cut off when fitting the radio adapters. It could have used slightly longer screws because I'm not sure how much thread depth was achieved.

It's okay...

victor from New York, NY on 2/14/2018

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

It is okay, it does the job of filling the side gaps of the Radio/Navigation unit. Be aware that you may have to cut or shave the pieces to fit in your vehicle which I did not know until I opened the packaging and read the diagrams included. This is important. Had to stop in the middle of install to find a friend that happened to have a hacksaw, and knew enough to make a CLEAN cut. Also be very cautious as pieces can easily snap.

Pros: Does the basic intended function.

Cons: Slightly delicate. May require cutting or shaving to fit your device.

Cheap dash kit

Travis from Huntsville, TX on 2/8/2018

2003 Toyota RAV4

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

These were free, but they look the part. There is no part that covers the top or bottom of the radio, and the steps on the side of this block the trim ring from being used. Also, it's not sized for my brackets, so I had to do a lot of cutting t get these to fit my radio. The molding is very cheap looking and would cut you if you ran your finger near it.

Pros: Free

Cons: Looks like a free part.

Needed modification to work

Mark from Burtonsville, MD on 1/29/2018

2007 Toyota Highlander

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

The holes in the dash kit did not line up with the receiver. They were about 3/32 too far towards the front. I thought maybe it was the receiver. But, then I lined it up with the dash and the receiver bracket, and once again they were off by that same 3/32. Conclusion, Metra kit is not to specification. The good news is it is relatively simple to elongate the holes a bit. Once installed, it looks good.

Pros: Looks good once it is installed

Cons: The holes in the bracket are off by 3/32 of an inch towards the front of the unit and the dash.

Had to trim to fit my 04 Sequoia as per the instructions. Easy enough with a sharp utility knife to score along the line and then snapped right off nice and clean.

This makes the radio that I purchased fit into the Sequoia beautifully. There were instructions included to trim part of it off before attaching it to the radio. Make sure you have a good cutting tool and that you are cutting where you are supposed to. This could have been a problem if I didn't have a dremmel to trim the part.

Pros: Makes he Radio look like it belongs in this vehicle.

Fits...with a bit of work

Scott from Kansas City, KS on 11/1/2017

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

Installed on a 2013 Subaru BRZ. Followed the included instructions by cutting out a bit with a dremel. The fit is not perfect, but acceptable. To get it to fit right, the OEM head unit brackets are only holding on with 2 screws (instead of 4), and these plastic filler brackets line up with only 2 holes of their own, one of which takes some wrangling to install the screw.

Pros: Serves its intended purpose

Cons: Takes a bit of custom work Head unit held less securely than before

To all FRS, 86 and BRZ owners there is cutting required for this dash kit. It will not fit with the factory brackets . Just call Crutchfield and they will email you further instructions. Once that is done it will fit perfectly.

Vertical Curve in dash not matched

Needs work. Got it to fit my car OK (2006 Scion xB), but doesn't really match the vertical curve of the dash opening (this dash kit is vertically straight while the dash curves back). About 1/8 inch difference by the time you get to the top of the radio opening. Once installed, though, you really don't notice the difference (only upon close inspection), so... Better than nothing.

Pros: Fills space to right and left of radio in dash opening

Cons: Vertical curve in dash opening is not matched.

Fits a 2014 Forester

Sandra from Silverton, OR on 5/21/2017

2014 Toyota Camry

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

This is the correct install kit for a 2014 Subaru Forester. The Crutchfield site doesn't know that. It also takes a considerable amount of fab to get it to fit around the stock brackets. Much more than the instructions point out. You have to just put it together and work with it. The good news is the plastic is soft enough that you can work with it with a good pair of scissors instead of a Dremel. It is also a little flimsy once it is installed on the head unit & before it is in the dash fitted into the bezel. Be careful as it can bend or break easily. Once it is fully installed it is fine. The dash bezel keeps it nice and snug.

Pros: It fits the dash of a 2014 Forester

Cons: Takes a lot of cutting to make it attach to the head unit. It is a little flimsy until it is fully installed

The front-facing part of this works _pretty_ well, though it doesn't quite mount flush between the dash and the new deck. The bigger problem was that the pre-formed mount holes didn't fit with the JVC deck I purchased. I ended up only using one hole (would've liked to use at least two), and I had to cut off the bottom hole and cut away some of the bracket to get these to fit the deck. They're in fine now, but it could have been an easier process.

Pros: Simple, possible to modify if needed

Quality of the part is great. Instructions for it to work with my model car were inaccurate and as a result I damaged one end. I will reorder and modify to work now I know how. The spacer does not fit flush to the head unit. You need to have a spacer to push it flush. This isn't crutchfileds cause just the product and being to many models compatiable.

Pros: Price

Cons: Fit and instructions

So be prepared to use a Dremel on these. They do NOT fit until you cut 90% of it off. Once I cut off the part that was in the way of the mounting bracket they ended up looking fine and did the job. Just in case you don't know, these fill the half inch space on the side of your deck.

Better than nothing, but the fit and finish of the panels that show is not great (rough edges / slightly different appearance from other side piece). Funny thing is the behind the scenes parts of the kit look like they are machined or molded very well. Maybe I just got a bad set... but it works!

Pros: It works. Fills in the gaps for a professional appearance. Seems like decent quality plastic.

Cons: You have to modify the bracket depending on which car you're installing them in. Fit and finish is not the best.

They do the job. Not spectacular but sufficient. They fill in the gaps around the edge of the head unit and they look ok. Not entirely factory looking but acceptable.

Pros: They are easy to use and fill the gap around the edge of the head unit. They are cost effective. You can't really install your head unit without them.

Cons: They look a little cheap. Not quite factory.

I give this 3 stars only because the bracket holes do not line up properly with the Boss head unit mounting holes and I had to reconfigure them with a dremel tool. Once done it fit very well in my dash module of a Toyota Highlander and looks factory spec. If it wasn't for the alignment problem it would be 5 stars.

Pros: looks good, fits good in dash module

It fitted ok, but not axactly line up with the screw holes on the new head unit and it's not align well with the old brackets. It come with 4screws each side. I can only used 3 of the screw on each side. But all in all it's not bad, if you're not really nitpicking. It's got the job done.

Great radio

Victor from Santa Barbara, CA on 10/2/2016

It is a great product.

Pros: Everything on the radio Works as I inspected it exept for the USB cable when you connect your phone as I have an iPhone I connected and it doesn't take the link and I don't know how exactly that works but doesn't recognize the link from my phone. Gaps on the side when you finish installing it it's got a couple gaps on the sides and that's kind of annoying and that's the only thing I didn't like from it

Cons: I think that the hardware for the installation needs to be rearranged so that it disappears the gap from the sides on the radio. Thanks.

The screws that came with it were too short when attaching with base support plate.

Poor fitment

Chris F from TX on 7/12/2016

2003 Toyota Sequoia

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

I was awfully disappointed with this kit. It had to be cut, ground to clear the mount flange and also the surrounding structure. The instruction pictures were particularly useless. With the Pioneer deck I ordered, I had to go find longer screws and grind the length down because the kit took up too much screw length. In the end, it didn't account for the slight offset in the Sequoia radio, and there's still a gap on the far side. I'd rather pay extra for a decent kit.

Pros: It's black

Cons: Poor fit Poor instructions Could not use unit provided screws

Works well with Double Din JVC receiver once I customized the fit

Westsammvan from San Antonio, TX on 5/25/2016

2004 Toyota Sequoia

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

These brackets were provided free by Crutchfield so I can't really complain about them for this installation. It did take me about a half hour to figure out the fit with the stock brackets which required me to cut off the "arms" of both of these brackets in order to get everything to match up correctly. They also impeded one of the bolt holes on each side of the receiver so I couldn't use all four bolts to attach the stock brackets to the new unit. But with three bolts on each side and all four front bolts holding the unit in place I haven't had any issues with the receiver moving around. They also filled in the front gaps nicely on each side of the new receiver to provide a clean look.

Pros: FREE! Provide a clean look to the new, smaller-faced unit

Cons: Needed some trimming to fit with the existing brackets. Slightly covered a bolt hole so I couldn't use all four bolts on each side of the new unit.

Fits well and looks good, but none of the screws worked

Colin from Renton, WA on 4/19/2016

2004 Scion xA

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

Know that if you buy this, you'll need to spend 15 minutes reading the instructions on what portion of the dash kit needs to be trimmed off in order for it to fit correctly. Some of the modifications can be made with a hacksaw, but others require a Dremel or similar. The Sony radio I purchased came with screws with around 1/4" of threads, which is barely enough to get one thread in on the factory mounting brackets, and much too short to attach this dash kit. Unfortunately, they use a very non-standard screw (flush mount, blunt end, but with sheet metal threads). I ended up finding some machine screws that worked, but not until after I drove all over the city. Finally found something that ended up working at a local big box hardware store. This dash kit really should come with longer screws - or be flagged in Crutchfield's system to indicate that in certain stereo/car combinations, longer screws are required. It surprises me that the Sony radio came with the super-short screws, since I would imagine that 90% of all stereos require some type of dash kit which is impossible to attach using the default screws. In this case, I'm not sure whether it's the fault of the dash kit or the stereo... I'm blaming the dash kit.

Pros: Fit the dash Holes lined up perfectly Closes the gaps on both sides of the stereo

Cons: Makes it impossible to use the manufacturer-provided mounting screws. Requires hacksawing or Dremeling to install Kind of cheap looking.
