    I did a search and still uncertain. Can anyone tell me or direct me to a thread on how to remove the end caps? Do I need to remove the whole bumper or can I just removed the caps?

    I'm either going to have them powder coated which I'll have to remove them.

    If I have them wrapped,.the guy at the shop says he can do them without removing the caps.

    I'm leaning toward powder coating but the color may be off a bit. If I wrap them the match will be almost perfect.

    Powder coating $80 bucks

    Wrapping them $60 materials, $150 labor.

    Any input would be greatly appreciated

    I removed the chrome bumper ends and replaced with painted ends. (Inferno Orange) I monkeyed around trying to remove without removing the bumper, do yourself a favor and remove the bumper.

    I couldn't find instructions, but its pretty simple to do the job. Takes about 2.0 hours total.

    Btw, if your looking i have a set of chrome ends for sale.

    Can anyone point me toward video showing how to place the front driver side bumper extension? Got the part and fasteners.

    Take the bumper off! It’s pretty much the only way. Take picture before because there’s some wonky hardware that hold the splash guards on. A forked pet tool will help during this part. You need to take the grill off as well to access the top bumper bolts as well.
