Default Overhead console and headliner removal

Does anyone here know the proper procedure for removing the overhead console and headliner? I need to take them out to install an antenna to the roof. This is a regular cab if it matters.

LowUFO, great information.

My may not be the same but if I can't confirm any other method I will proceed slowly with your instructions.

Thanks
