How do you remove the upper dash panel above stereo

I ordered one of these Daystar KJ71020 - Daystar Upper Dash Panel for 07-10 Jeep® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK - Quadratec and it should be here tomorrow, I would like to install it but how do I do this?

it is a 07 Rubicon, and it currently has the "dome" thing on there where there would have been a GPS unit, but I dont have the GPS and dont plan on getting one, I will just sell it, but I want to know how it comes off.

Thanks

Small screwdriver on the sides. Use something to cushion the dash when doing it. The Daystar comes with instructions with pictures and should take 10 minutes.

Did this to mine and really like the dash panel compartments!
However, the internal compass for the instrument panel in located under the that dash panel. Almost anything you put in the dash panel compartments affects the compass reading in the instrument panel. Has anyone found any way to prevent the objects in the dash panel from affecting the compass reading?

Interesting. I will have to keep an eye on that.

Thanks for the heads up

Not been a problem for me. I currently have binoculars, small pliers, some coins, and about 20 hotel key cards in the rear tray and the remote for my stereo/nav system in the front tray. The onboard compass and my nav system compass are almost dead nuts the same.
