There are allen screws that go around the assembly but I don't think every one is bolting down the bezel. any ideas?
Take a small screwdriver and insert it between the boot and the trim ring at the front of the transmission shifter. Pry upwards, and the boot should come loose. Then just pop it up. There are two clips, make sure they are both undone before you start pulling up on the boot.
The transfer case shift boot has three clips. Just work your way around the boot until all three clips come out.
Once the boots are loose, there are two phillips screws on the transfer case side, and two phillips screws on the transmission side. Remove those, and the trim ring will come up. Then you can remove the bolts for the shifters and then the little black airbag control module cover.
If you want to remove the floor plate completely, undo both kick panels on either side, as well as the long rocker panel trim. Then just pull the carpet back until you can access the four bolts holding the floor plate down.
Pic of the parts so you can see the green clips and the screw holes in the trim ring:
