Has anyone tried installing one of these?

I've read all the links I could find and none describe the one for a capless fuel system. I understand how to remove the four screws, two holding just rubber bumpers and two holding rubber bumpers and the door hinge assembly. But there is still that capless fuel system plastic surround/gasket. It looks like it’s press-fitted into some holes behind it, but I'm not sure what may break if I try and pry it out.

I've been dying to get a black one for mine. Should fit on an 06 right?

I ordered a similar one off ebay, But it turned out to be the kit for the F150s. Had to modify the mounting bracket. The gas funnel cap has 3 tabs that need to be pushed in before it pops out to expose the OEM gas cap bracket. If this product is direct replacement, it's not a hard task at all!
