abunda_amazon_reviews Pros: Hard to say - I didn't install it. Seems like it would fit, but I can't really confirm. Packing was fine - not extraordinary or anything, but sufficient. It comes with instructions. Cons: It doesn't match the vehicle interior. Not even close. Mid gray is not black. It would look just as out of place if it was hot pink or yellow. Also, as others have posted, the switch panels don't pop out - they're molded in. You have to cut them out. I don't think that's a big deal, personally. But, for convenience sake for the end user, pop-out panels would be better - especially if you ever decided to remove a switch at some point down the road. Bottom line: Well, if you don't care about how it looks, then I suppose it's fine. But I like the mods I make to my rig to look as "factory" as possible.
