no need to take the front bumper off at all. the bolts come in from the back anyways if you have a front skid plate you have to take that off but other then that just unbolt them 3 bolts one bottom 2 top

Just make sure you turn the bolts not the nuts.. the nuts are welded to the hook...

Please take a little bit more time when posting. You point will come across so much better, if somebody can actually read it.

i took mine off when i did my billet insert, took forever to get off because they are practically welded on

anyways, long story short my hand slipped off the wrench and the inside of the bumper sliced a chunk of meat off the top of my hand, and yes it hurt

so be careful

There's nothing like donating a little blood to the mod project! I've donated a little to the
"mod gods" as well.
