    Got my bruteforce front bumper in, taking it to be powdercoated. I'm thinking I'd rather just save the money and install it myself. I also need to replace the passenger side headlight assembly. I'm competent with tools, have installed a lift kit. I'm just wondering if I need power/air tools? All I have is ratchets and wrenches. Anything special I need to know about taking off the stock front bumper and putting on a plate bumper? Any help is appreciated

    There should be pretty easy to follow instructions for taking off the bumper or installation.

    If not taking the stock bumper cover off is easy, just a couple of screws and clips.

    Easiest way to get the clips off is GENTLY with a flat head screw driver.

    Ohh and get a buddy to help you
