Seems like lots of work just for a center shifter. You aren't paying for the new dash are you?

One main thing to think about are the airbags. Its recommended that you remove the battery connections and then let the truck sit a MINIMUM of 30 Min. This is to let the residual power source deplete, therefore allowing you to work on/around the airbags without the chance of them engaging. Be careful when you set them down after removal. I have heard stories of the drivers side engaging after being set down too hard (stories but cant be too careful). Good luck!

Yeah the good thing about the truck im pulling it out of is that its a wrecked truck and has no motor or battery stuff to deal with which works out well so gives me time to practice on it. Plus i just pulled the air bags out of my truck so that helped a bit.

Got the dash pulled out of the wrecked truck today was actually a pretty good score. I thought the truck had grey interior panels cause it was so dirty but it actually was a black interior truck with silver trim so for what I paid I got a full dash,FX4 cluster and center console with the shifter.
