Front bumper removal

Front bumper removal

Postby MooseKnuckles [OP] » May 22 2020, 4:50pm

Is there a quick and dirty way to remove the steel section of bumper circled below? It's the only spot on my truck that is rusting so I'd like to pull it and paint it.

Noooope. That’s part of the bumper structure. The side panels bolt onto it. Your entire bumper needs to come off.

haha that's what i was afraid of, I was looking at it yesterday and figured that was the case... well i guess i will pull the grill, corner caps and lower fascia so i can leave the bumper in place and sand it down properly.

You can buy painted ones. Or ones in primer. You will have better results than sanding the chrome one

lol washed it for a road trip up north last weekend and noticed it's getting pretty rusty along the bottom lip. looks mostly surface still so it should sand down pretty easy

It’s way easier to take off the assembly and tear it down on a bench. I did mine last year. Pull out plastic plugs on air intake. Two nuts on each side on the frame rail. One bolt on each side for the outer side brace. Unplug fog lamps before removal if you have.
I ended up buying a higher quality one from LKQ. It fit great.
