Hi guys, can anyone advise how to remove the front ash tray? I want to run some wires to the cab in that area. Don't want to reef on it and damage anything...Thanks

Was wondering about ashtray as well.
Havent seen one in years in a car/truck, UNLESS you get the smokers package, then it is a cup ashtray that slips into one of the drink holders.
All kidding aside, I think he means that pull out storage compartment under the hHVAC controls

I think you are correct
He or She must have the seat type console with the cup holders or whatever under the temperature controls.

In that case i believe that the radio bezel has to be removed first
2 screws in the tray at the very top of the dash
possibly one more screw where the 115 VAC connector may be on some Rams
Then the clips around the edge of the bezel have to be unsnapped

Then disconnect the wiring connectors

Then with the bezel out of the way, i think there are 4 to 6 screws that remove the part that was mentioned in the first post
