    now time to start taking things apart
    IMG_0252_4cdb7998788d0eca50c0ab1c4357d1d6bd9a8b60.jpg
    getting the bumper off was tricky.. but none the less it came off

    IMG_0255_462cfa7afd77a45667972de730026dbbdb9e4719.jpg

    my buddy steve helping me... no way in hell was i going to lift that bumper by myself... lol im pretty scroni...

    Putting the bumper on shouldnt have taken as long as i took.. i forgot to remove a towing part on the frame... a removable hook you might say... took me 30 mins to figure that out... and also not all the parts lined up, so i had to muscle it

    heres the final picture.. it was dark when i finished... im not completely done yet.. i still have to wire the fog lights..ill do tomorrow.. ill also take better pictures..

    IMG_0256_44f96469efd4fcb26f91b763a708a7bbd0244fd2.jpg

    Yeah, I wouldn't. The pressure could cause some hoses or cables to come loose, and could jar other things loose also.
