Real easy.

Pop off the dash defroster vent.
Remove 2 screws on top of center bezel.
Remove ash tray
Remove screw behind ash tray
Remove bezel.
From Stu's site (yes it's for the Rubi locker bypass, but shows how to remove dash bezel)

Rubi Locker Switch Bypass - 1

As for switches:
Add a Switch for the TJ Factory Switch Panel

Oil - maybe 5w30? I personally use Valvoline Maxlife and have had no issues.
