I installed one in my 05 LJ, same dash design as yours, check my profile for pics of it installed and feel free to ask questions if you need help.

1. Order the support bracket for it from quadratec for the Jeep, some say why bother but if your offroading it just may save your radio:

2. Your gonna need a dremmel or good small space cutting tool for installing the bracket.

3. No clue about the length of the GPS antanna in the RAM and will it be a good fit for the Jeep but I got mine off ebay for 20 bucks, and the support bracket came with instruction that gave the great idea of sticking the antanna just above the air vents on the dash which gets hidden when you put the trim piece back on, mines magnetic so just stuck it to the frame next the vents, and works like a charm.

Anything else, feel free to ask

Sorry I was off about the dash bezel, but check this link and talk to this guy about how he put an RB1 radio in his 2001 Jeep Wrangler:
