    I'm swapping rear bumpers with someone for my '08 Sport. We both have the receiver hitches. What's the easiest way? Leave the hitch and remove the rest, or take off the whole enchilada? Step by step directions from someone experienced would help alot. Also how much time to do. Thanks

    I am fixing to be in the same boat, I want to remove my chrome one and paint it black. Or swap bumpers with someone in the DFW metroplex. My 7 month old washed every week 08 chrome bumper for your factory black bumper. :)

    It will be pretty explanatory when you get under, and look at it. I would remove the bumper and leave the hitch. It will be easier to re install that way. :)

    Thanks people. It looks like the tabs let the step plastic come off and then the rest should be easy I guess. Any more tips would be nice.
