Can anyone give me info on how to go about removing the cubby hole pocket? My truck is a C2500 so it has the passenger side cubby hole instead of an airbag.

I did a decent amount of searching on the topic before posting here, but I couldn't find anyone, anywhere that said "here's how you do it." Just a lot of various other answers. Heck I even tried researching how to go about replacing the passenger side airbag to no avail.

I've got the 2 10mm nuts removed. The ones where the studs are facing the firewall, picture #1:

I'm thinking now that these 2 studs have nuts on the backside holding the cubby hole pocket in place:

If I'm correct on my assumption regarding photo #2, my question is, can I grind the head of those 2 studs off to remove the cubby hole then replace them with some other fastener?

Any and all information is greatly appreciated.

Are those big heads not the plastic push pins?

Nope, pretty sure they're captive bolts, pressed-in maybe? with nuts on the backside somehow. I wish I could remember what all hardware was behind this for removal. Last time I tried to explain to someone how to remove this part they destroyed it and the dashboard (I had found one forever ago at a non-self-serve boneyard)...and too many years have passed since I tore a dash down on a 97-up GMT400.

Terribly sorry about the delay. It's just been wanna those years so far. But here's some more info regarding the cubby pocket removal. I got access to a donor dash & managed to take some photos of the 4 nuts that need to be removed & the cubby pocket just pops right out.

Very nice, thank you for posting back. I'm betting the boneyard dudes didn't look/feel around for the two that were recessed and that's how they broke the one I found.

I'm not even certain these nuts are physically reachable with the dash still in the truck. I won't say that they can't be. But I will say your MacGyver game better be on point if ya try it.
