    Does not fit my 2011 Tacoma

    This dash kit doesn't even come close to fitting my 2011 Tacoma. The head unit I'm using is a Pioneer AVIC-D3 (double DIN nav/bluetooth/DVD etc). I installed this same head unit in an 07 Tacoma, but I used a Scosche dash kit in that truck. It fit great, but was kind of squeaky at times. I was hoping for better construction with the Metra. While it does seem to be constructed a little more rigidly, it just doesn't fit at all. The primary problem is that this kit requires the use of the factory, metal radio brackets. The problem here is that the holes on the brackets do not allow the Pioneer to be installed at the proper depth or angle to allow the Metra replacement dash to snap into place. I've tried every combination of holes, but no dice. It just isn't possible without drilling new holes in the brackets. Had I known that this kit required the use of the factory brackets before I ordered it, I would've known that it wouldn't work because I actually tried using the metal brackets with in my 07 Tacoma instead of the replacement plastic brackets supplied by Scosche. After all, metal beats plastic every time. Again, the factory metal brackets just aren't compatible with my head unit. The second problem is that the black plastic trim that goes around the head unit is too big for my Pioneer, leaving an obvious gap on three sides. And lastly, the opening on the Metra kit for the factory hazard light button is either too small or not aligned properly. This causes the button to be pushed and held down when the factory clock/hazard light assembly is snapped into the kit. After more research on some Toyota forums that I frequent, I've learned that more than a few people have had this problem with this kit while others have had no problems with their head unit fitting at all. I think it just depends on the brand of your head unit, so research before you buy.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend
