Best In-Dash Kit?

Hi Everyone,

I'm going to put an In-dash stereo/navigation/bluetooth in my 2010 TRD Off-Road. I'm going with a Pioneer AVIC-5000NEX. Planning on having Best Buy install it.

My question is what is the best mounting kit to get with it? I've seen that different companies make them in different colors. Which ones look best and fit the best?

If you have pictures of ones that you've had installed that would be great!

Based on another thread here, I went went the Scocshe over the Metra.

I got it in Piano Black for my 2015.

However, my local nice stereo store ONLY installs the metra kits. So they must be ok too.

Thanks everyone! Going with the Scosche.

I hear you also need an adapter for the steering wheel controls to work?

Awesome. Thanks for the help guys. I ordered all this stuff. Once it all comes I'll let you know how it goes.

Anyone want the links now? I bought everything through EBay.

Here's the one that I bought. I like the look of the Scosche better than the Metra.

How do you like the new radio setup? Any complaints?

i'm looking at a similar setup, either the NEX series or the 4600. Just got my scosche 2 din kit in. Feels solid and doesn't look like absolute hell.

I have had a ton of experience with all types of the scosche and metra kits for these trucks and practically every other car out there. It's a toss up between the brands for most vehicles. Sometimes the scosche kit is better, sometimes the metra is better. In the case of our trucks the scosche kits are superior. They are made of a more rigid ABS plastic.

Just be sure to use the metal supports off of your factory head unit.
