Metra's first dash kit for the new Ford Bronco, the 107-FD2, is designed to fit 2021-2023 vehicles with factory 8” screens. This dash kit is exclusively manufactured to install Pioneer’s 6.8-inch modular receivers into the dash, like the DMH-C2550NEX and the DMH-C2500NEX†. This kit will also accommodate most shallow-mount or L-shaped radios with the chassis at the top of the screen. The 107-FD2 has a glossy ABS trim panel to match the aftermarket radio’s finish.
The new 107-CH6B TurboTactile™ dash kit for select 2019-Up* RAM trucks features a built-in OLED screen that displays the status of climate functions. Additional factory-style hard buttons have laser-etched graphics for access to vehicle personalization menus. The buttons control features that are typically lost after removing the factory radio. Metra’s built-in patented interface technology retains climate control functions, factory amplifier, and steering wheel control features. Additionally, the 107-CH6B is exclusively manufactured to install Pioneer’s 6.8-inch modular receivers, like the DMH-C2550NEX and the DMH-WC5700NEX†, into the dash of 2019-Up* RAM trucks with the factory 8.4-inch screen and dual-zone climate. This kit will also accommodate most shallow-mount or L-shaped radios with the chassis at the top of the screen. TurboTactile™ kits are painted to match the factory finish and include installation parts for Double-DIN aftermarket radio installations.
The new 95-7643 dash kit designed to fit the 2013-2020 Nissan Pathfinder will combine the best of what the TurboTouch and TurboTactile kits offer. This kit features easy-to-use rotary knobs that allow for the control of climate functions along with a 7” touchscreen that retains most of the features typically lost when replacing the factory radio. Additional factory-style hard buttons have laser-etched graphics for access to vehicle personalization menus. Metra’s built-in patented interface technology retains climate control, safety, and steering wheel control features. The vehicle’s hazard button and passenger airbag indicator have also been integrated into the kit, which is painted scratch-resistant matte black to match the factory finish and includes installation parts needed for a Double-DIN aftermarket radio installation.
The AXPIO-MAV1 dash kit designed to fit 2022-Up* Ford Maverick and the AXPIO-NI2 designed to fit the 2013-2020 Nissan Pathfinder are fully integrated dash kit packages designed specifically for select Pioneer® receivers†.
