How do I get the dash covering off my 03?

I didn't get a whole lot of help putting this in the electrical section, so please don't move this.

How do I get the molding off around my radio and a/c and heat dials and whatnot? I need to get to the harness behind the radio and can't figure out how to get it off. On my 98 Cherokee, it was so easy to just pop it off and with the TJ, it feels like I'm going to snap the plastic.

Any help?

The top bezel that runs from one side of the windshield to the other side pops up.. there should be 2 phillips screws on top of that and then it should pull forward.

Finally paid off...

Alright I got the plastic covering off, but when I try to pull the radio out, there's a good amount of resistance. Should I just pull harder or is there a reason there's some good resistance?

Reach behind your glove compartment and feel for the back of the radio. There is a mount bolted to your radio back to support the radio. Remove the 1 nut, then slide'r out.

On my '98 Wrangler you need to take the ash tray out and remove the screw holding the center console onto the dashboard. There are also holes on the top of the center console that are visible if you pop off the plastic piece closest to the windshield (VIN is visible in hole in this piece) but the holes were empty (no screws) in mine. Maybe my jeep was a Monday or Friday production truck and that guy was on vacation.
