Bumper Removal Help

This might be a dumb question but can anyone help me figure out how to take off the front and rear bumpers from my truck?

Maybe a write up or general description.

Thanks!

I figure it similar to the 6.0s and 7.3s bumper design. Which is 4 bolts around the tow hooks, and a support bracket on each side bolted to the frame. But I don't know for sure.

They are real easy... I didn't take pics, but I just yanked my front off this weekend....

For the front.

1. Pop the hood and undo the 8mm bolt holding on this little black nipple thing by the hood latch. It has a wiring harness plugged into it(not sure what it is or if all trucks have it)
1a. Unplug fog light wiring harness

2. Pull the wiring harness up off the pop clips that run along the inside of the front bumper channel (the wiring harness has those "t" fittings pushed through holes in the bumper to keep it from falling, you need to remove the wire harness from those holes...

3. Remove the 14mm(I think) bolt from the bumper bracket on the left and right side of the bumper by the front wheel wells

4. Remove the 4 18mm(or 19mm) bolts where the tow hooks are.. Be holding the bumper at this point as it literally falls off when you remove the second bolt off each tow hook. The bumper is NOT heavy...


Rear:
There are 4 bolts holding it on... you can see the bracket when you look under the truck... May have to disconnect your backup sensors when doing this if you have them..
