^^it is even easier on the 05-07's because the console is easier to remove.
1. Unscrew the shift knob.
2. Grab the rear most portion of the shifter surround (closest to the cupholders) and pull backwards. This pops the shifter surround off.
3. unplug the harness for the cigarette lighter (surround will be completely free now to remove)
4. unbolt shifter from fork (one 12mm bolt I think)
5. pop shifter out of cup
6. reinstall in opposite order
