Removing front bumper?

Removing front bumper?

Postby BigRedZ71 [OP] » Jan 25 2012, 12:01am

I'm wondering of any body know how to remove the front bumper from my 08 Silverado. I want to get the part of the bumper between the fog light housings just under the grill painted black and was wondering if I would just he able to take it off to get painted or had to take the whole truck to the paint shop. Also would I be able to drive it without that part on for a day or so while it was being painted, since it is my daily driver.

I just thought it would look cool with my truck being red having a black grill and the plastic trim being black too.

Have to take the top plastic shield off the top of your grille. Then take your grille off. Take out the 2 top 21mm bolts that run down through the bumper, then the a 15mm bolt on each side for the bumper bracket. Don't forget to unplug your fog lights. If your taking the part to get painted, might as well take your truck there to have them do it. Your not going to be able to drive around without the front bumper. Prob be a 2 day job for a bodyshop.
