2001 Sahara Switch Removal and Light Bar Lights Install

I have a 2001 soft top Sahara and I am trying to mount some KC Apollo lights on the light bar I installed. Im looking for locations to mount the switch within reach of my driving position and I know that these three black rectangles in the attached picture are for mounting switches and other buttons that you may need. I have absolutely no idea how to pop these suckers out. I tried removing the panel underneath the steering wheel to try to get behind there but it was no good. Any assistance would be welcomed!

Also, any general comments or helpful tips before i begin the light installation would also be great. I know some of you veterans might have some trade secrets.

I have an 01 Sahara as well. You will need to remove the top portion of the dash that runs along the windshield, it has the defroster vent on it. To remove it just slide a flat head screwdriver under it and pop it up along the length of it. After that there are two philips head screw you need to remove that were under the piece you just removed right in the center of the top side of the dash. Once the screws have been removed take your ashtray out and there is one more philips head screw behind it, remove it. Now after all three screws have been removed you can pop the entire center part of the dash off by pulling it away from the dash, once you have it off you have access to the back of the switch panel. It takes no more than 5 minutes to disassemble the dash; I’ve had mine apart at least 6-7 times.

BTW... welcome to the forum!!
