Default Need help-need access to rear of radio

Has anyone installed an aftermarket radio in a 2010 1500 with a center console? I know on my '04 there was a single scew that kept you from removing everything, but I don't see anything like that. I am not changing out the radio, but I do need to gain access to the back of it. Specifically, where the antenna connects.

Thanks for any help.

Although, I expect some negative remarks for this I'll go ahead and tell you anyway. I installed a scanner and didn't want to run an external antenna if I didn't have to. I have already modified a bracket if I need to, but I was really trying to keep the outside of the truck clean. I purchased an antenna splitter and although I have been told they suck I wanted to give it a shot.

I installed the scanner itself under the drivers seat and ran all the wiring under the carpet and along the frame rail. I really wanted to prevent people from knowing I had a scanner installed and a splitter would accomplish this.

those diagrams make it look harder than it is. its 2 screws located under the little rubber cover at the bottom of the small like coin tray on the top of the center console. that tray comes out with the 2 screws then firm but gentle pressure pulling from the top of the console should just pop out.

this is how it is in my truck, column shifter no center console.

The goal was to link the trucks antenna with the scanners. Here are some pics of the scanner mounted. It is located under the drivers seat.
