Default CB Radio Installation

I posted a thread on a short throw shifter, and someone showed me some pictures. In the pictures they had a cb mounted below the heat and a/c controls. I was wondering if that whole piece comes out or what.

Not sure if it came from walmart, bought it from a buddy. Probably the same one. Did you have to take the airbag switch out? And if you did is your air bag light on now?

You could just take the switch off the cubby deal and tuck it up under the dash if you disconnect it youll have a dash light
