    My searching hasn't turned up anything for the manual transmission. How do I remove the center console? I got the cup holders out by just lifting straight up. But it doesn't become obvious what the next step is.

    My goal is to install an XM unit under the front-right edge of the console, in front of the shifter, near the passenger foot area.

    Thanks,
    Shawn

    . Unscrew the shift knob. It just unscrews by turning it counter-clockwise.

    . Unscrew what you see under the cupholder.

    . Pull up the rug at the bottom of the console storage area and unscrew what you see there too.

    . After that's done, grab the whole assembly and pull it towards the back of the truck. It'll detach from the dashboard and you're all set.

    Thanks a bunch! That's a great guide and the console is so simple to remove once you know how. :)
