Default Steering column shroud removal?

I have a 2012 1500 and want to remove the shroud around the steering column in order to run some wiring to a switch I am installing in the spot where the adjustable pedal switch normally is. Can anyone tell me exactly how the shroud comes off? I searched and found out how to do it on earlier trucks but I want to make sure I am doing it right on this one. Any help is appreciated.

I want to know too. I like the idea of putting a switch there. I haven't looked yet but I would imagine that there are screws on the bottom side of the shroud.

What do you plan on using the switch for.

I want to install an on-off-on rocker switch there in order to power some auxiliary reverse lights.

There should be 3 screws on the bottom side of the column cover that take a T20 Torx bit to remove. if you go here dwanton made a video detailing how to do a console swap, part of which entails removing the column cover. It's around 3:30 in the video
