i'm pretty sure i read one a while back that said its fairly easy..just some clips and bolts. i dont know if this really helps..the main thing i got out of it was that some of the clips are pretty hard to get out and you have to yank on them pretty hard.

yea i already did it it was real simple. take out the 8 plastic screws and then the 2 metal bolts on the support and pull up. I'm thinkin if my truck had a bumper like yours the front end would look SICK. I put on a black xl grille paintmatched w/ the brushed aluminum inserts.

thanks man! they're great bumpers and for a pretty good price. you should look into them. and lets see some pics before you switch it back. it wouldnt hurt to have some other peoples opinions. im sure it looks legit.
