IIRC, when I changed my tow hooks, there are a couple bolts around the tow hooks. Take them out and that should be it. On my truck, there was a "splash shield" that had 2 plastic clips holding it to the bumper. I didn't see them and I ripped the shield Make sure you take them out. I did one side at a time so if taking it completely off, 2 people would definetely be better.

What you will need to remove a front bumper:


1. 6 pack of your favorite beer
2. 5 spare minutes
