Radio removal/installation, need some help/info

So im taking out my stock headunit in my 08 f250. Im wondering if that wood grain panel that is infront of the radio is held in by all snaps and you just yank it off or if there is skrews somewhere that are hidden and if so where? How do you get this wood gain panel off? I got the panasonic CQ-VD7003U 7" touchscreen and i also got the PAC SWI-X steering wheel radio control interface so i can still use my factory controls on my steering wheel with my panasonic headunit. Its going to be the first time ill be installing something like this steering wheel interface and im wondering how you do it, has anyone done this installation before? If so can you give me some details how to do it. Thanks in advance, i appreciate your help.

p.s. im also looking for a sub box that will fit behind these back seats in the new 08 f250's.. if anyone is selling their system or has dimensions or any info on how i should do this, please let me know...

I don't know from experience on the 08's but I would think that it is all snap on. Just pull easy, most dashes that have screws to remove that panel, I think they are normally on the bottom.

Hope this helps,
Kenny

On either side of where the trailer brake controller/up-fitter switches go,there is a removable panel that pops out with some prying.Behind these panels are one scew on each side.Then the center panel pops off with some prying.
