Default Question about pulling entire dash

I have a 97 Ram 1500 with a upper panel that's cracked in many places (nothing new there). I bought a new panel and am working to pull the entire dash to replace the cracked piece, and I'm going to go ahead and do a few other things while I've got the dash out such as replace the heater core and evaporator.

I've got the dash ready to come out except for the electrical connect on the left side. The right side had a couple connectors and radio antenna to disconnect, but the left side has a large bundle that comes in through the firewal and splits - some to the fuse panel and some to the instrument cluster.

My question is this: can you disconnect the large bundle at the junction where it comes in through the firewall (white junction in picture), or do you have to disconnect the fuse panel from the dash and disconnect all the electrical connections in the instrument panel? It sure seems like the dash would have been completely wired before installing in the factory with just a few connections to make, but I don't see how to disconnect the main wire bundle.

Thanks for your help.
