That's just the big factory plastic dash trip piece. It all pops off to get the radio out. The cb should fit just fine for you provided you have the single din radio and factory mounting brackets

ok, i see what you have, you still have the factory dash surround, but the radio and filler plate are not factory (and really stupid). have you taken your dash apart to see what the radio bracket looks like? my guess that the way its sitting in there you are going to have to find some factory metal radio brackets (pretty sure they will work with just about any generic single din head unit) or get some after market brackets and just throw out the plastic filler piece. They you can secure the cb under the deck (good tape and zip ties are popular) and vwala. if you have any more questions ask away.
