Default Anyone Removed the Center Console Bezel on a 13/14?

So my lights are on the way and I am planning on installing them this weekend. I am planning on installing the switches right below the shifter dial in the silver bezel on the center console. It looks like it is just tabbed in...so I *should* just have to pull up on the thin shiny fake chrome one, and then on the bigger silver bezel, but I thought I would check to see if anyone can confirm that or if there are screws that need to come out somewhere...

Anyone?

Default Center Console

First off I have a 8 speed rotary dial on the radio bezel so if you have a shifter, it may be a little different. There are 2 screws under the front rubber mat. Then, the chrome bezel just pops out. I used my hands to pull it straight up. It has some tabs with snaps. After that the main bezel (Silver) just pops out. There is one metal snap clip at the back. It was pretty simple.

Im not talking about the radio (vertical) bezel, im talking about the horizontal bezel around the cup holders etc.

if there is a rubber mat, it is likely there are screws under it
especially the rubber mat closest to the radio

Yeah, thanks for the pic. I am looking to put the two switches directly below the shifter knob so that bezel needs to come out. I will check under the mat.

Knucklhead- yes that is what I was reffering to the center console. I was just saying that there may be differences if you have a shifter vs the rotary dial like I have.

The picture GTTankee provided looks like mine (except mine is an SLT not a Laramie) Nonetheless, the center console is the same.
1. Pull the rubber mat in the front, remove the two secrews
2. Pull the chrome bezel up- it just has tabs that snap
3. Then open the console
4. Pull up on the silver painted part at the rear (metal snap clip)
5. The front should pop out as well by pulling up
