Before anyone yells at me, I did a search unsucessfully. Maybe I didn't use the proper terminology! Anyway, if someone has some info on how to remove the instrument panel that will contain the future Aux light and Diff lock Selector switches, please let me know. The FSM shows how to remove the upper and lower instrument panels by removing a s*** load of screws. I assume that by removing these two panels, I'll either expose the screws for center panel or simply remove the center panel w/o any screws. In any case, let me know if this assumption is correct before I go charging in ???

Thanks.

That's for the CDL switch... I need the front/rear diff lock switch install assistance!

Do everything for the CDL...the lower dash cover just snaps in on the DS...

Carefully work it loose and unplug all the widgets.

Ok, let me understand this correctly. You simply unsnap the left lower panel? We're talking about the panel directly to the left of the steering column where three switch blanks and one fr/rear diff lock blank are located. CDL switch went in easily and quickly BTW.

You detach the ENTIRE panel (including the section with the CDL, etc...)

It spans the whole area.
