Default 1996 Ram 1500 Ignition Lock Removal Help

I have a 1996 Ram 1500. I need some advice on how to remove the ignition lock cylinder from the ignition switch.

This morning I go to put the key in the ignition and the key rotates as usual as far as the gauges coming on but there is no tension. I called a local locksmith who told me he has seen this many times with this model and in all likelyhood all I needed was to replace the lock cylinder. He charges $180 to come do it (includes part). I can get the lock cylinder at my local CarQuest for $59 but can't seem to figure out how to remove the old one.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
