Pull off the little black thing at the rear of the console unscrew i believe 2 screws and pull up. There are 2 clips at the front.

Assuming you have one that looks like the piece on the right.

Surprisingly when i got to the point of pulling the carpet in the back it was only tucking under that back seat tray about an inch, so all I had to do was pull the carpet out and not worry about removing the trays, and it was easy to put back in all that I had to do was wiggle the carpet back and forth to get it back under the trays

I think you can leave the handle on, I can't quite remember its been a couple years since I've had the truck, but I think once you go and take the leather/plastic part around the base of the shifter you can get everything out without taking the shifter apart

and if you are checking for leaks, check the rear windows, my 97 the passenger side rear window was leaking and it turned out the weather stripping started to rot and it was leaking from down at the bottom, whenever it leaked it would go and puddle up under the passenger floormat
