Removing radio

Hello all,
Does anyone have input on how to take the radio out of my 07'?
It has the 6 disc Boston Accoustics system. I want to install a Peripheral iPhone system. I'm just not sure on how to start taking the dash apart.
Thanks in advance....

Cico7 is correct, in that there are 4 phillips screws that hold the radio in. However, you first must remove the dash face plate. There are 16 exposed allen head screws, of which 5 are for looks only. You can take all 16 out, rotate the dash face plate toward you from the top, and lift it over the steering wheel. You will then see the 4 black screws.

You'll want to look for the diagram, you don't want to remove the non-removable ones because they don't go back in very easily, they are basically glued in.

I did find a diagram of which socket head cap screws to remove.
Thanks for the input.

I got my iPhone all hooked up to my Jeep today. Thanks for the link Jeep 5253, it helped me take the console apart to run the wire through there. It works well, now I have the ability to play all of my downloaded music in my Jeep.
