Question New HU install ?? and cam ??

Hi everyone...
I just purchased a JVC head unit that will go into my '06 F250.
I am not sure how to take the stock unit out, or even take the fake wood dash out. So, if someone has pictures, a write-up or any other info on how to get the dash and radio out, please post it...
I just don't want to break any parts in the process.

Also, I am thinking about adding a rear view cam to the JVC. Who has one and what kind? Please post pics, info and so on. IIRC I saw a picture where someone put the cam into the plastic around the handle for the tail gate. I'd like to know how is the view, angle, height, does sun light affect it much? I like this location very much and would like to see some install pics if possible.

Any idea where to get the speed signal and the reverse signal (for the cam other than the rear lights)? One more: I guess I have to ground the wire for the emergency brake to watch DVDs while driving? Not me though, just the SO... she needs to be entertained...

So, like always, any input is much appreciated.

Thank you
