Default Heater Core Replacement!

I am having 1 hell of a time with this. Any suggestions to make this easier? I was out there for an hour and took off the lower dash portion and most of the screws and cut the strap. It still wont budge and I do see a couple screws I dont seem to be able to get to. The manual said the lower dash is all that needed to be removed... Some help please. Anyone done this?

well you can unbolt the steering column and let rest on the drivers seat then just move the whole dash out of the way

There's a really good write up on how to remove the dash, which is what I used when I replaced mine. It was a lot easier to do than I thought it would be... Just make sure you remember exactly where everything goes. I couldn't imagine doing it without removing the entire dash, not only would you need a 12 pack, but a bottle of tylenol too!

I pulled the entire dash and steering column and went through about 12 beers......I see no other way. Next time I'll buy another jeep! Enjoy. The heat works great now though.
