OK; got it. Rear out first; front back in first. Now, where did I put my plastic trim tool? ...
Until recently, "plastic trim tool"="anything sharp, pointy, and thin". It will be fine...
I managed to get my tray back in almost like new (just a little dip/gap in the front middle), but it involved a lot more shoving and swearing than I expected. I have a couple of replacement trays which I ordered from my dealership - one for possibly re-working my ID-5100 mount, and another to keep pristine, to replace if I ever sell or trade in the truck later. I ordered a set of plastic trim tools from Amazon - I think they were worth the few bucks I paid.
How much were the trays? Hopefully, not too bad. When I test fit the FT-847, screws on the bottom of the unit dug into the front flange of the tray. I figure, what the heck, these trays are probably not too expensive.
I'm a little late to the dance here, but I'm picking my new 2019 up today. How about antenna mounts? I hate to drill out the roof of the cab like I did my older truck for an NMO mount. Anyone know about the 'pricey' mounts that appear to fit around the 3rd brake light? Right now I just need a small 4" antenna for 440.xx MHz that I use for DMR locally.
For the time being I'm going portable with a trailer hitch antenna mount for my yaesu 857D. With the removable control head It gives me some options for mounting in the cab later on.
