    Hey Friends, I tried looking all over for a guide to remove the front bumper on my 08 trd sr5 but I can't find any! SO i'll try a post.

    In case you're wondering I was off-roading and this suicidal fenced jumped in front of my truck so I had to run it over. Unfortuately it took a chunk of my bumper with it. So i bought a new one for $70! (primered) Im ready to put this sucker on!:D

    When I installed my ARB I just grabbed ahold of the factory "bumper" and started yanking. A few yanks later all the platics pins had popped and it was off :D.

    I wouldn't rip your bumper out like ^ this guy. That's if your re using the factory brackets. It's fairly simple, just google the PDF for removing stock bumper and you should have it

    same thing happened to me..only I decided that a rock wasn't looking at me the way I liked so I tried to shoulder check it on my way by to show it who's boss.
