Removing the dash

Has anyone removed the dash?? Just got mine today (finally, pics coming soon) and want to install my hardwired radar detector...little hesitant to be the first to venture into this.

If anyone has any tips, they would be appreciated....

I havent done it with a GC but with a Envoy and a Escalade and both of them I was able to sneek the wire in behind the trime without taking anything apart. The last time I installed the wires in the overhead. Found a hot wire that was on with the key and bada boom we have power

Re: Removing the dash

yeah, I'm thinking of putting it up a little higher and doing the same thing...the dash looks like it would be a pain to take off...

Re: Removing the dash

Go fot the headliner you do not want to take the dash off. The HVAC bolts from the engine side and the IP bolts from the cabin you would have to get to take so much off to get to it also if you look on how they single you need to pull center consol also...
