removing the stereo

Do i have to remove the plastic molding around the entire heating vent, temp controls and stereo in order to take the deck out of the dash board? If I do how do I do it?

Pull the trim piece above the defrost vent. It just pulls up. There are a couple push pins that hold it in place. The plastic trim piece is held on by 3 screws. 2 are under the vent panel and 1 is behind the ash/coin tray. It pulls out towards the back of the jeep. There are 2 1screws holding the stereo to the dash.

Yes you do. First you remove the plastic molding that is by the front windshield defroster. It prys out w/ a flat screw driver (carefully)

Under you will see 3 or 2 screws that unscrew.. also there is 1 screw when you remove the ashtray under your ac/heater controls. When those are removed that piece pulls out just like the top one you just removed.

Next open the glove box and stick your hands behind it.. you should find a big cable wrapped in foam.. this should be able to get disconnected into 2 separate cables.. thats the antenna and you will need to pull it off to get some slack.

Remove the front few bolts that hold the stereo it self..

After that there should be a anti theft bracket behind the radio that is tied to the cd player and also 2 bolts to the chassis right by the window defroster.. thats a btch to remove.. for mine i first removed it from the body to get some slack and then disconnected the cables from the radio and at last removed it from the back of the cd player.
