You need to pop off (has clips only) the AC controls bezel. Unplug the AC controls and starter button. The remove the radio bezel (Again clips only). Next remove the top dash pad. This has several clips and one screw that is hidden under the radio bezel. Now the fun part. Remove all the top screws on the driver's side dash (Red piece). The pry off slowly (Clips on the bottom). The passenger side is harder. Remove the top screws. Under the bezel is the SRS Airbag trim piece. You will need to remove that (3 clips) and cut the zip tie. Now remove the two screws that are under that trim piece. Open and drop the glove box. Look up and you will find two bolts (see picture) Those are for the airbag. (the airbag will come out with the dash panel. (The red thing you want painted). Remove the two bolts. Once you remove the bolts, pull the airbag and dash bezel towards you. from under the dash, you will now see a yellow plug. Unplug that plug and you are done!

Great write up, though I'm not too comfortable removing the air bag.

Completely of topic: What floor mats are those? They look like the JK mats (which I vastly prefer to the JL mats).

Code IV,
Thanks for this. Love the Ocean Blue. I'll have to go get some of the paint for some projects I have lined up.

Here's how it looks when you do it in green.

BTW: when you go to disconnect and reconnect the airbag, it's easier to reach from the bottom.

Thanks for taking the time to send this to me.
Also found 2 helpful videos on Youtube: one on how to disconnect and remove grills, second on how to paint the grills yourself. Let me know if you want the links.

Thanks for this. So what color are you painting yours?
Hello CT: My new 2 door Rubicon is white w/black trim and black satin grill up front.. Dashboard covers are red. Was on a local website and the dealership had painted covers white. Looks great with rest of black interior.
