Dash bezel fit w/ aftermarket stereo

After trying two separate single- DIN stereo install kits, I've not been happy with either. Tried a cheap eBay kit and one from the local stereo shop and neither seem to fit tight and flush with the dash bezel.

Anyone have any kits that they've had good success with? Also, anyone else have problems with the dash bezel fitting a little loose at reinstallation? (I've got some gaps around climate control panel and at the top near the defroster register and small pad area)

Mine seems to fit pretty well, but it was in there when I bought the Jeep so no clue on where its from. I only changed the stereo. how about some pics of what you're working with to show those gaps.

I have a slight gap on mine. If you can post some pics we can get an idea of how far off yours is and see if it is any worse than all the others. Also make sure your mounting bracket is not in upside down or backwards

When you put the dash bezel back in did you get the tabs aligned? If not you just bend them over and will have a gap. Mine was from Wal Mart and fit perfect. Good Luck.

Found one issue- metal clip on the driver's side of the bezel is gone. Any suggestions on where to find a replacement?

Make sure its not stuck in the hole still....if not, dealer is the only place I know of. Although I've not researched it much
