    Wish there was an easier way...

    So you have to have this to put radios in most vehicles, especially older ones. The biggest problem with this is it is a hard plastic and you HAVE to cut off tabs to make it fit each model. The instructions show which tabs need to be cut off and act like its no big deal...it's a big deal! If you have ever tried to just cut or bend thick plastic it's not gonna happen. We tried multiple crazy ways to cut the tabs off and even a basic saw wasn't cutting it. Good luck to anyone with this fun task as our looked like it got run over after all our failed attempts and we have to use a power saw and sand paper to get it the way it was needed.

    Works but not great quality

    The mounting bracket worked okay, however, it is only plastic with tabs that you have to remove so it can be used on multiple vehicles. Once mounted it really give no way to secure the radio without having to machine / come up with a method to secure the Receiver to the mounting bracket. The suggested method - bend some tabs is garbage and is not solid. Best bet - look for another mount.

    This makes an aftermarket install very easy in an older car. It goes into the old radio hole simply and uses the existing mounting screws. However, it is not as solid around all of the edges, but this may have more to do with the poor Chrysler design of the radio hole having only two screws to hold the panel in place. It holds the radio well, but I wish it had some sort of extended support in the back.

    THIS ITEM WAS AS DESCRIBED. THE INSTRUCTIONS WERE VERY EASY TO FOLLOW AND VERY THOROUGH. THIS PRODUCT MET OR EXCEEDED ALL MY EXPECTATIONS. I TEND TO NEVER BUY A PRODUCT ON A WHIM OR AS A SPONTANEOUS PURCHASE. I ALWAYS WANT TO BUY A PRODUCT THAT HAS A GOOD REVIEW. I THOROUGHLY RESEARCHED THIS PRODUCT BEFORE I PURCHASED IT.

    I used this to replace my classic jeep factory radio. Took some thinking and a couple attempts, but finally got it in ok. Looks like a factory install and saved the 3rd party installation fees. Make sure the clerk looks up your vehicle for the correct one since I picked the wrong one off the shelf.

    Terrible fit

    I got this product to install an after market radio in a 1999 neon, The fit is not even close to correct. The face plate will not fit through the opening of the consul without extensive cutting and the radio does not fit straight. It says it fits a neon but this is not true. I would not recommend this to my enemy.

    The mounting braket works but it is very cheap plastic and does not hold my stereo as well as I hoped it would. I drive a jeep and when I go off-roading you can see that it does not hold the stereo in place. I guess I could put up with that if it was just $5 but for $20 it's not worth it.

    I was told I needed this to give my new head unit a clean look. It looks good, hold the unit in well, and made install easier. Plus, for the cost, why not make life easier.

    Best Buy stereo installers recommended this, however, it did not fit in my 1998 Jee Grand Cherokee 5.9 Limited. Which, if you read the packaging, of course it does not list my Jeep Grand Cherokee year. So, I'm sure it works for the vehicles it obviously lists! :)

    Was easy for workers to install and works great. It fits beautifully in our vehicle so that now we can listen to a wide variety of music and makes road trips so much more pleasant.

    This was fairly easy to install and looks great. My only complaint is that it is meant for multiple vehicles and the instructions are a little unclear. In the vehicle I put this in I had to cut/break off several tabs in order for it to fit my application.

    Read Instructions Carefully

    Instructions are incorrect. Make sure you try a dry fit in your vehicle before snapping off tabs. Incorrect tab removal will cause fitment issues.

    This product is very customizable for many applications with many vehicles and many models. But that is also probably the downside which tabs to remove on which sides gets a little bit confusing and does not allow the part to fit exactly right.

    I bought this wireless router to use as a wireless switch. It was simple to setup even with out an internet connection. The included instructions worked great. I've had no problems with the operation since

    Instructions are lacking and it was hard to find. Need to look at the back of the booklet for install on your vehicle. Because it is universal, there are tabs that need to be cut off. Just so you are aware before buying.

    All I had to do was pop off a pair of legs as the manual specified for my Dakota 2000 extended cab and I was able to fit a single din stereo into my 1-1/2 din dash. Perfect and looks amazing X_x

    Allowed my after market radio purchase to appear flush and does not make the radio stand out or seem awkward. Allowed for good installation of the radio. Is very flush with the dashboard.

    Since my vehicle had one of those over sized stereos, I needed this to fill the extra space in the dash. It fit perfectly and made the install look like it came that way from the factory.

    It works for what I need it for. I had to pull it back out of my jeep and when I did half of one of the rings where you bolt it in just snapped off
