How do I remove my radio - 2005 F350?

I've looked all over for instructions on how to remove the radio in my '05 F350 but haven't had any luck. The radio does NOT have the 4 holes in the front, so the little "U" tools won't work. I'd like to pull it out to see if the dash hole will accept a Kenwood AVIC-D1, but haven't figured out how to get the darned thing out and don't want to damage the dash blundering around on it. Can anyone enlighten me? THANKS!!!

The entire Benzel comes off to reveal 4 bolts holding the radio in. Move the gearshift lever to its lowest point and grap the benzel from both sides and pull. There are some wires you may need to release. When I put a Xm fm modulator direct input,I was able to do it without removing it completely. Do a search of this forum and somebody has posted a detail removal step by step. You may need to do that to put in a new radio.

Thanks for the great pics of the dash removal. I am trying to hook my MP3, which is part of the Lowrance Nav iWay500, into the Aux input of the factory stereo. Sounds as though this might not be feasible, connector wise, through. Has anyone got any info on this yet?
