How do I remove the blank dash plate

I want to mount my mini maxx on the blank black plate where the 4x4 knob is usually at. Does anyone know how to get it out? I thought about trying to just pry it out but I have a knack for breaking little plastic tabs off things. Thanks for the help

Yeah just pry from the top with a plastic tool or just be careful with a pocket knife (how I pop them out) or you can scuff up the dash if not done smoothly

Or you can just pop off the whole dash panel, like you would if you were removing the radio then you can push it out from the back so you'll be less likely to break off any tabs or scratch the dash.

That's true. Especially if ur prone to breaking plastic tabs I'd do it as magnum suggested, more safe

Edit: I forgot, you still have to pop out the two lower inserts to take the bolts out so you can remove that dash piece. Just pry easy with a plastic tool

How hard is it to get the whole dash panel off? I haven't taken any of the interior apart on a truck since my '75 F250 high boy.

Pop off the two lower plates:
Left side is the cig lighter
Right side is the audio headphone jack input

Pop those off and remove the two 5/16's bolts then you just pull the dash section out, it's held in by plastic clips that'll just pop out easily when you pull on it
