    I bought this to install a double din radio-cd-mp3 player in my new ford f-150. I was very easy to use and the instructions were clear. This was the second Metra kit I have used I also used one on my 1990 Mustang, worked like a charm. They also have wiring adapters so you do not need to cut any wires. Love It.

    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 installed by the Geek Squad, along with my head unit, so I can’t comment on ease of installation. However, it does what it’s supposed to do. It provides a finished look to the install.

    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 had issues in the past with these kits leaving a gap too big or not lining up properly with trim. THIS one, however, fit like a glove! Geek Squad Techs did excellent, overall!

    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.

    This kit made installing a new system into an older 2001 Ford truck easier. My truck is updated with hands free phone and navigation.

    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.

    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.

    The installer chose the kit that was the perfect fit for my 18-year old truck. Gives the dash a definite upgrade.

    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.

    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.
