    How hard is it to replace the rear bumper? Do I have to remove the hitch?
    I am 66 and not too good at crawling under cars.

    its not hard to remove the bumper just takes some patience. and no you dont have to remove the hitch just 2 bolts on each side that holds the bumper to the hitch and 2 bolts on the step on top. and dont forget to unplug your license plate lights

    Why are you taking it off? Is it damaged and you're simply replacing it?

    it also helps to have a floor jack or a friend near by to help support it when your on your last bolts when taking off. also when putting the new bumper on its hard to hold it up steady and line up the bolts.
