installing switches

i see that a lot of ppl have installed switches and everything in the dash. my question is, are you just pulling the whole dash off to install this stuff of just a portion or what?'
and how hard is it?

Actually just pull it off.. start on the left top put ur fingers in there and pull and work your way across. Then once its un snapped you will just disconnect things. its not hard at all.

You can always pick yourself up a set of upfitter switches and the lower dash panel out of an 05 up... then have a nice setup!
