Can I ask a question about the kit itself? Are these replacement pieces for the existing dash panels, or are they stickers, or overlays, or what?

If you go out to the Mopar website, to the e-store, some of the items like the radios have atatched installation documents. Those docs include step by step instruction of how to take the dash and center console apart. If you can't find the docs, let me know and I will get the URL for you.

From gunslinger.com, It is very easy to remove the shifter if you are talking about the center counsel
.
the factory handle is held on with a compression fitting. Inside the grip of the factory shifter, there is a small bump that fits into an 1/8" grove on the steel shaft of the factory shifter. When the chrome plated plastic compression fitting is placed over the bottom of the shift handle, it compresses this grove into the steel shaft. This is what holds the grip on the shifter.

To remove the factory handle, using a butter knife, pry the chrome compression bezel down. After the bezel is lowered, you will see white plastic fingers with slots. The bump is located on the underside of these fingers. Insert a screwdriver into these slots and twist lightly from side to side to free. Pull up to remove the factory grip, then remove chrome compression bezel.

Yes, as long as you don't force anything it will come apart correctly and can be put back on.
