    does anyone know how to remove the woodgrain and chrome to get access to the radio, I bought an Ipod integration kit but the instructions are for the ram with the center console and the one I have is with the fold down cupholders.

    1. Disconnect and isolate the negative battery cable.
    2. If equipped, remove the floor console,
    3. Remove the cup holder if equipped,
    4. On vehicles with a close out panel, remove the screws and remove the close out panel
    5. Remove the screws
    6. Using a trim stick, disengage the retainer clips that secure the instrument panel center bezel to the instrument panel.

    Thanks Green Grass

    That's what I needed to know. Now I wonder how I can make a "trim stick"? I imagine a small screw driver may work.
