    Used on Pioneer

    Sadly I had to buy this to fill the gaps on both sides of my Pioneer AVH-x391 BHS dvd/stereo on my 2005 Tundra. In the case of Pioneer, they could make their screens about a 1/2 larger on each side on their players but instead chose to make screens smaller to save money on their part. Pioneer double din stereos are not real DD size units they are much smaller. I won't be buying another Pioneer with a video screen as most if not all other brands have larger screens. This kit fits very loosely as it's flimsy and simply not designed right at all but it does fit.

    requires use of stock stereo brackets!

    The install kit worked perfectly. The only thing is that it should be made clear on the packaging that you need to reuse the stock stereo brackets! I got lucky I had not tosed my old, non functioning stock radio. Had I not still owned it, I don't know how I would have gotten this radio in as they give you no other optional brackets to use if you don't have your stock radio still.

    My 17 year old car radio stopped working a few weeks ago. Rather than repair it, I decided to replace it with a modern system. The Metra - Dashboard Radio Installation Kit - Black was the perfect accessory needed to ensure the smooth installation of my radio (also purchased at Best Buy).

    Bestbuy Geek Squad did a pretty good job cosmetically of installing my new car stereo. However, they failed to use a shielded ground and now I get feedback under acceleration and even when using my turn signal. Now I have to return to have it reworked. :/. The product pictured does look pretty good though.

    But it gets the job done. One of those things were the purpose is not to be noticed. These things succeed brilliantly in that. I've had this for a little more than a month and I'm so pleased with everything. Stereo looks like in could have come from the factory this way.

    No real directions with this, but you don't need them. They slide in next to your new head unit. I had to trim them a bit so they would clear the mounting brackets on my 2003 and 2006 Highlanders, but that was easy enough. Happy with the outcome.

    This was recommended by the sales clerk at best buy when I purchased a new radio. I'm glad she did because the new radio wasn't as wide as the stock radio. After a small modification to the attachment points, it screwed into the radio and made a nice, flush appearance with the existing dash.

    Seems like a great flush mount adapter but it will not work for the 2002 toyota tundra as i was told and could not use it. Couldnt return it either as i had to cut the slots out of the pieces and only then do you find out it wont fit

    These were just the things I needed to complete the installation of my wife's radio. They are a very snug fit, so it will take some convincing to make sure they are screwed in to the sides of the radio as well as fitting them in the Double DIN slot.

    I bought this for my 2004 Toyota Highlander Limited and while it did the job I did have to make a minor modification to it so that the bracket for the Kenwood Double din stereo I was using would fit. It was simple and it fits great.

    I bought this adapter set for my 2004 Toyota Highlander Limited so I could install a double din Kenwood stereo system and it worked perfectly! It was easy to install and filled the gaps nicely and with no space leftover. Great fit!

    Fit this in my 2004 4Runner with a Pioneer NEX5200. Nice snug fit. It was hard to find here in town for some reason. It does the job, i wish it had the option to be matte vs the glossy-ish finish it currently has.

    This must be a part of the install kit. I Can't see it and can't say if I've seen a better or worse one before, just know right now my radio is jamming and stays in place as I drive...so I'd have to bet its doing a great job!

    This is a good dash kit for my 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser not sure on any other vehicle what pieces are included with these kits. Instructions could have been a tad bit clearer

    I thought I had all the right parts but I guess I was wrong. The guy who worked on the car stereo knew what he was doing and just how to make the car dash look really nice even though he had to improvise. very impressive.

    This harness is very complicated. After Installing it is had no sound. Took it to a radio shop. They told me, after about an hour, that the new harness was bad. Did return it with no problems

    Zero complaints, but is an absolutel must of installing a double din, or else there will be two gaps on both sides of the radio.
