The kit is okay, however it does not fit my new radio. The radio is too large (Boss BV9560B), the plate will not even go around it. We tried to adapt it by cutting the plate that goes around the radio, however being plastic it broke. IF it had fit the radio, it would have worked fine in my truck and would have looked ok. Companies should give the dimensions for the inside and outside of the plate so you know before you order if it will fit the truck and the radio.

Works really well in my 2004 F-150. The finish matches almost perfectly with the truck's stock finish. The only posible negative is that the 2 side mounts are plastic rather than steel but they seem to hold the head unit securely. I made sure to use the rear rubber coated pin that came on the stock head unit to hold up the rear of the new head unit.

Installed this in my 2006 F150 and it fit _perfectly! As another person mentioned, this really made for a professional look. Was _very_ easy to snap together and install (in my case I need to cut away two tabs so entire assembly took about 10 minutes. Bolt up perfectly and the radio does not move at all. Highly recommended.

I used this kit for a pioneer avh 2400bt and my 2006 mustang. The screws on the side that connected to the head unit had to be inserted with a bit of muscle, but didnt damage anything. Also, you do have to cut those things on the sides that stick out if you dont have a certain make of car. Just make sure you read the instructions before installing. ALso, the manual said to use the spacers for my mustang, but the unit stuck out too much and I just left them out, and I think it looks good. Overall, it fit good.

I used this on my 2007 Ford F150 Lariat Crew Cab with a Pioneer head unit. Fit and look of it was perfect.

This worked great for a double DIN radio I got and fit in the slot in my dash perfectly. The material was very high quality and matched the black dash around the unit. The unit had everything I needed (for me just the face plate and the side brackets). Did not need the the screws since my unit came with screws for hooking a bracket on.

In the end this was a very solid installation kit at a great price. It fit my 2007 Ford Focus perfectly and makes my new 7inch touch screen look like it was made for the car.

This is for Fords,just do alittle research first as you WILL need to trim this for some head units,so check opening dimensions of your intended puchase,this ARE easy to trim and or modify and are reasonably inexpensive and gives you a pro finish in your vehicle,a visit to the Metra website will assure the correct unit for your needs.Very happy with the purchase.

This review is strictly for a 2008 Ford Explorer, the product may be perfectly suitable for other vehicles.

I've used Metra dash kits for many years now, and have always been pleased with their quality and finish. In this case, I am very disappointed. This kit is for both single and double DIN installations. I am installing a double DIN enonon G2104 head unit. It is clear they tried to make this one product work for a wide array of vehicles. As such there are modifications which are required to make this kit work with your specific vehicle. I'll try to describe each issue.

1. The dash kit when properly assembled just doesn't fit properly into the dash opening. There are gaps between my dash trim, and this install kit's face plate. There is absolutely no way to correct or fix this.
2. The kit requires you to cut tabs off of the kit for the explorer installation. You'll need to not only cut off the tabs, but sand down the bracket where the cut was made.
3. For the explorer install spacers are included and required. The spacers are problematic. They should snap in place, but they are too loose, and tend to fall out as you are attempting to secure the kit to the dash.
4. The face plate requires you to recess your radio into the dash. The kit's face place sits on top of your head units face plate, and pushes your head unit backward into the dash recessing it. Now this doesn't sound bad until you see it installed, it looks like a hack rather than a clean installation. If you have a deep head unit, you may even have issues getting it to fit in.
5. Because the face plate covers over the head units face plate, units with controls near the edge will be blocked by this kit's face plate. On my unit, the USB port, SD card slot, infrared window, and a few other items we inaccessible with this kit. Also if you have knobs, the kit may not fit at all. The knobs on my unit are close to the edge, and since the kit needs to cover a bit of the units face plate, the knobs wouldn't even fit through the opening in the kit. If you have a motorized front face, there is no way this kit will work. Rather than covering the head unit's front face, they should have made the kit to allow the head unit's bezel to pop through the kits face plate.
6. Be wary of using the included screws, they are very long, and may interfere with the functioning of your head unit. You would be better off getting shorter screws.

Overall I am seriously disappointed with this kit and would not recommend it for a 4th gen explorer installation.

Just finished installing this with a Pioneer AVH-P3400BH Double DIN in my 2005 Ford Focus. Ultimately, it worked and it looks good. But, it wasn't brain dead easy; my notes:

* The instruction are a little confusing (for my vehicle, the instructions mention not breaking off the back tabs...and says, all other vehicles, move to step 2) Where was my step 2?! My take, the instructions for all vehicles are pretty much identical except some vehicles remove the back tabs, and some need to install the provided spacers).
* Because of the curvature of the face plate of the adapter (due to the curvature of the car stereo area in general), it was a little off putting that the faceplate and the radio didn't align perfectly corner to corner when I was setting things up out of the car. This isn't a fault of the adapter, just the reality of putting a perfectly flat headunit into a non-uniformly curved opening ...once it is installed into the car, this difference was much less noticeable.
* The fit of the radio + adapter in the car was tight. Much less smooth than getting the factory stereo in and out. I needed to gingerly push the side mounting brackets to get things to finally seat squarely in the dash.
* The mounting holes of the adapter didn't perfectly align with the holes in the dash. I could get everything in though.
* The 4 mounting screws provided where smaller than the factory screws I took out. For me, they were too small and didn't catch securely. Fortunately, I just reused the factory mounting screws with no problem.

If you are not deterred by the finer points of the installation mentioned above, I don't think you should any problems with this vehicle and head-unit.
