    There is a thread that talks about both. I have had both. Scosche is a loose fit, and the Metra just doesnt fit right, I need to play with it some more.

    My Metra fits perfectly. Could not be happier.....
    Have seen PLENTY of complaints about the scorche.

    My Metra is black. Just like the stock radio from my truck.

    Radio I pulled from my 07 AC was silver.

    But I put the Black Metra back in, glad that I did, looks MUCH better and keys in with the other bits of the dash as swell as the Kenwood 493 that I installed

    If you have a second, could you toss up a picture? My current set up
    (stock) is silver but when I upgrade soon, black sound like a better option as you did.
