removing rear bumper...is there an easy way???


Morning Folks!
getting ready to do some bumper modifications as part of Slimer's 2.0 upgrade for the show season...
Is there an easy way to remove the rear bumper and if so, where do I find a how to on steps or video?
I dont want to hurt it obviously, but need to get it off to dip lower rear panel, remove reflector inserts and take out the plate mount area...
Any suggestions????

I've popped off the bumper when I changed out my rear valance. It took about 20 minutes. I've got an '11 so I don't know if there is any difference between the two?

Yeah, you've gotta remove the taillights. Other then the wheel wells, everything else is snap on tabs. Check out my "Mod's" album in my profile, I've got pics of the bumper removed.

It isn't bad at all... I think pulling the front facia off was way harder (especially without ramps)!!

A second hand helps when putting it back on just so you don't scratch your paint!

Yeah... I didn't jack it up either! That is why it sucked!! Barely could see the bolts using a mini socket set!!! My fat heat squeezing under there. Not fun.

How did you mount your iPhone up there by your dome lights?

That is really cool!

It was a little weekend fab project.. Nothing too fancy or complicated. I'm waiting for more savvy fabricators to make something nice...

Here was my write up

No problem man. It's not hard at all, I was expecting more of a headache. But it literally took minutes. Good luck!
