removing dash

anybody ever remove the entire dash on a 99-06 f250? any tips or pointers? tricky spots? how long did it take you to remove dash?

2000 ford f-250 leveled off, crew cab, headlight upgrade, gauges; pyro, boost, tranny. 6637 intake. 06 lariat dash/seats/interior. DP tuned. A dash of this, a dash of that

I just did mine. Its not that bad at all. Two bolts on the drivers far side at the door and one on the passengers, then there is one in the middle that you have to remove the lower center dash to get. Then the 4 on top at the windshield. Unplug the wiring harness then it pulls right out. NOT BAD AT ALL!

You do have to pull the steering column. Its FAR easier to pull the whole dash metal frame and all, and the steeing column mounts to the dash. Its not bad either tho, 4 bolts, shifter cable, unplug the harness, and one bolt to the steering shaft and it slides out, steering wheel and all.

Well i think yes because the dash vents and ducts screw on from the back side , so to pull the plastic off you would have to. I cant see any other way unless you break the screw off and not put them back. I think even if you tried to get them it would be eaiser to pull the whole dash then take it apart out side the truck.
