How to remove steering column assembly?

I have a 1990 yj manual trans with the tilt steering column. I need to replace it but am not sure how to go about removing it. What do I need to remove first?

-I plan on replacing it with a older style xj column.

Remove the instrument panel covers

Remove the steering shaft

Unplug the connectors and any terminals from the steering column

Remove the bolts that fasten the column to the firewall

remove the bolts that secure the bracket holding the steering column to the bottom of the instrument panel.

I don't think I messed anything, it's quite easy.
