Default Dash Removal

Does anyone have any detailed information or directions on how to take off the dash and access the back of the stereo head on a 2011 Ram 1500 Laramie with the front bucket seats? I want to add the LockPick or similar module and don't want to disassemble the dash incorrectly. Any advice/pictures/videos or links to a site with info would be very much appreciated!
Thanks for the love and welcomes into the Z family, looking forward to all the great conversations!
Rob

I ran across that video on YouTube as well, but I am not sure if the removal is any different for the bucket seat configuration vs. the bench seat. The bottom portion of the dash is not exposed on the bucket seat config. and so I'm not sure if the same removal applies.
Thank you for sending that over, it is very much appreciated, but I'm really hoping to find something 2011 bucket seat specific. If not, I'll probably just use the above video and hope for the best.

only the bucket seats have the full center floor console
the bench seat models have the shifter on the column

mine is a 2009 Ram 1500 SLT 2 wheel drive, i had to have a cb radio installed in my console, otherwise it is the same as what was in the video

I see that the video has steering colum shifter, but I have the bucket seat configuration similar to what you have.
I am looking for a video that applies to our configuration with the floor mounted shifting console. I am not sure if the dash will pop off the same on our configuration due to the interference from the floor console.
Looking something specifically applying to our type of set up.
Thanks!

then your setup is in the first video with the shifter down on the console

where that guy used his finger nails to pop up the chrome rectangle, i would go to a parts store & purchase a TRIM TOOL, they come in real handy on your Ram & any other vehicle too. Like removal of that trim, door panels, the cover that is between your grill & the top of the radiator, etc.

this is the one i used when i took mine out. not sure why the photos arent there anymore but with this and the video you should be good. it is really easy once you know where the 4 screws are that need to be removed.
