Replacement HU Dash Fit

I've read a few posts here about people with new head units having the upper dash surround to the right of the unit not attaching properly...I just upgraded my wife's JKUS to a Kenwood unit and I am unable to get the dash attached too.

Is there some secret to getting it sit flush again? Is it loose because the mounting bolt on the top of the dash can't be put back in? It's sitting up at least a 1/4 of an inch and it's making me mental.

Thanks for any help...

A pic might help. My dash sits perfectly the same as before.

Assuming you took out and discarded the steel bracket that held in the old HU otherwise it won't slide in.
For my plastic mount that HU screws into I had to cut the plastic trim on the top side that runs horizontal it comes down about a 1/4 " in order for HU to slide in perfect. Also once it slid in I had to create a wedge for between the AC ducts and the HU to give it elevation in the back where it will sag because of weight. Hope this helps.
