    I had never installed a double DIN before so I went with the recommendations of the sales person, With the exception of the 2 side plates I wouldn't have needed this kit at all. Neither of the face plates fit and I had to end up making my own. I don't think it was the salesperson steering me wrong, the kit just did not fit my 2000 f150 as it was supposed to.

    Great Double DIN Installation Kit

    Posted
    Anonymous

    This is a great installation kit for those who wish to install a double DIN radio in the 1997-2003 Ford F150. The finished result looks like it was a factory installation, but it does take some patience and skill to achieve these results, removal of the radio support structure and trial fittings are recommended for best results.

    Metra stuff is usually right on point. The instructions were perfect including how and where to cut internally in my 2001 F150 Supercrew dash. Neither trim ring would fit well without a little Dremel help but overall looks factory.

    This was required to install a new Kenwood head unit in my '03 F-150 and although it was necessary it created gaps between the dash and the unit where none existed before. It's not really a big deal in a 14-year-old truck, but if this were a new vehicle it would be unacceptable.

    3rd time installing this in different cars over the years. They turn out OK, but look like a $20 part was installed. Prepare to look at it and say 'meh, I guess it looks alright..' Be gentle tightening mounting screws, you can snap these mounting holes off QUICK.

    This kit was used to install a JVC stereo in my 2002 Ford F-150. I had the installer at Best Buy put it all together and I'm very pleased with the outcome. The installation is sturdy and looks like it came from the factory.

    I have a 1999 Ford F150. The stock radio has a double din face but the body is a single. It will not fit a double din so this piece is good for the expedition but not the F150.

    Looking at the stereo screen is like if I was looking at my cell phone. Safe and great looking, my favorite part is the pandora app, apps from my cell phone.

    This product is designed to hold the radio in the dash. It is doing its job, the only complaint I had for it was the fact that the install involved cutting out pieces of my dash to fit my 2001 F-150.

    Cleans up the open space around the aftermarket radio and oem dash. Gives a great finish to the product. Also compliments the oem dash with clean black color.

    Best buy always has just what I need and the people there are always very helpful. The electronic guy in the back was a lot off help and had wonderful suggestions to help me install my radio

    I used this to install a double DIN radio in my 2000 Ford F150 pickup. It worked great and installation went smoothly.

    Put a new double din radio in my '02 Ford F150. Required some modification (cutting a small amount of plastic) to the dash to fit.

    Thus was just what I needed. It had to be trimmed for my vehicle but the associate told me about this prior to my purchase so I was prepared.

    Virtually useless. Almost all double din radios take up too much space for this to fit back in

    This kit worked very well. Needed to cut into the dash to fit a double din radio in what use to be a single din but with this kit, it fit very well.

    I think the installer should have used a different kit. He still had to cut some of the dash and kit. Less cutting on the days would have been less stressful.

    this mount does not work great in a 1999 ford expedition. would suggest getting a different mounting kit the works better in this vehicle.
