Now to remove the factory bumper. Our 1st step was to remove the small plastic cover located underneath the bumper itself.
That piece was held in with a few of these screw type clips. The easiest way to get them out is to slide a screwdriver into the top and push the plastic screw out a little. Once it looks like the picture, you can use a pair of pliers to pull the screw the rest of the way out. By doing this you will expose the blocker beam and have easier access to the 8 bolts that hold the front bumper to the frame.
