    I know there are some how tos out there. More pics cant hurt for those hesistant about tackling it.


    Remove the 4 10mm bolt and clip on top of grill. Pull the top up off where it was screwed in.

    Reach under the grill and slide hand across. You can feel 3 spots where there are tabs. Pull away from truck and remove grill.

    Remove the two tabs and two 10mm screws in the wheelwell for the garnesh below the headlighight. Pull away from the truck.
    IMG_1881.jpg
    The splash guard has two 10mm screws and pop up tab in the frame. Be careful and use a small flat head to pop off the tab as its easy to break. I broke mine.
    IMG_1889.jpg
    Underneath there are also two 10mm and 12mm screws.
    IMG_1882.jpg
    Once off you have access to the fog light. Unplug it. After it's unplugged you can remove it by using a small flat head screw driver and pop down from the top and it will come out.

    IMG_1878.jpg
    On the bottom of the center valence are three 10mm bolts. On top where you remove the headlight garnish are two silver 12mm bolts on both sides. Once done the bumper comes off as once whole piece.

    IMG_1877.jpg
    Remove the 10mm bolts holding the end caps to the metal brace that holds it all together.
    IMG_1875.jpg
    IMG_1876.jpg
    IMG_1838.jpg
    Don't forget the orientation of this piece used to screw the splash guard to under the endcap.

    Now drive around getting weird looks without front bumper while you wait on your caps to get painted/powder coated.

    I legit did this today and was searching for a guide... I got started right before you published it so I never saw it. I just sort of figured it out. But I ended up removing the splash guard and it was a pain to get back on.

    props for doing this to help out others!

    I got my oil changed and they didn't put back in the bolts that connect the valance to the skid plate. Now I think I know what I need to replace them. Thanks.

    It always happens. At least it's not your suspension with extra bolts
