Default dash pad removal

so ive tried to remove the dash pad before to try and correct a radio issue but i cant get the dam thing off. ive removed everything that screws into something else that i could find to no avail. ive even broken the clips that hold it on on the passengers side (my once crackless dash is now cracked). maybe im missing something. i dont know. and thats why im here. can someone please tell me where all the screws are? having no radio is driving me nuts! i forgot to mention, its a 95 regular cab.

no personal experience (yet), but here's some threads i had bookmarked. there are some difficult screws where the air ducts attach to the bottom of the dash pad.

the whole dash needs to be rotated forward. there are screws underneath the dash pad that need to be removed in order to remove the dash pad.

good luck!

i was wondering that too, but didn't feel like asking.
removal of the black bezel exposes the radio. a few screws removes the radio.
